  1. Thank you so very much! Yes it has, thank you for putting in the effort for me. Theres still helping people around after all. If I reached the perfect dose I think I'm going to stop because the breakouts are gone and I want to have an athletic career and it's really taking a toll on me emotionally and physically. I say what you say about coming this far and another month really reassuring the acne never comes back, makes sense.
  2. Thank you, wow I'm so crazy to be off of this!
  3. Hello everyone.   I understand that you need to reach a certain type of cumulative dose in order for the acne to not come back. I started off with 20mg the first month, 40mg the 2nd month which caused me to break out badly, went down to 30mg the 3rd since I broke out, then the 4th month went to 60mg and totally cleared up (december) no more actives on face, and then now on January I'm on 70mg and I don't break out at all. Maybe the odd one on my chest but that's it, face is like super clear. I feel like I just won't get anymore acne. So I weigh 145 pounds and next month I will be on 80mg. That will be a total of 6 months. I really don't want to extend this course anymore because it's driving me crazy and I want to begin to live life again. My acne was mild-moderate before I began the course with only around 3-4 actives and then it blasted and I got alot in my 2nd month and then on my 3rd calmed down and 4th it was totally eliminated. Now, I'm wondering with me weighing 145 pounds and taking a dosage of 20mg first month, 40mg 2nd month, 30mg 3rd month, 60mg 4month, 70mg 5month, and 80mg the 6month, would that be enough to reach my "cumulative dose"? I can't figure out the math (I've tried hard trust me!) and I would truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart if someone could tell me If I reached my cumulative dose because to be honest I don't totally trust my derm and want to get off of this and am clear. If not, I guess I'll have to do 7-8 months but I just don't feel I can handle 2 extra more months, I really don't. My bones hurt when I do exercise and i've just had enough of the side affects. I would appreciate it so much, thank you!!

  5. Cetaphil is great but for some weird reason the regular cetaphil that im using makes me sorda like break out more on the corner of your lips where accutane makes your lips crack. Other than that i think its good, i just dont really wash there around the corner of mouth. Right now to be honest im on 60mg and when i had no acne i would just take hot showers and never get pimples, so i stopped wasshing my face but in the IB i think you def gotta wash your face if your on accutane. Now in month 5 im feeling invincible, and i know if i dont go through post traumtic stress again, I wont be seeing acne again after this treatment ever, thank the Lord.
  6. Starting Accutane

    yeah but now that anxiety is mixing in with an age where your suspect to puberty. If the acne is severe, try to go on it and also try to find a way to take care of the anxiety because your going through a rough time. you'll get through it though its just a rough patch. I'm on my 5 month and now im finally clear. dont worry about erectile dysfunction, hair loss, dont worry about them you'll be ok.\   This is just my opinion i believe starting at a high dose is better cause even though it can make you break out, so can 20mg like it did in my case. I had like 3 pimples in my chin and got a bunch of break outs from 20mg-40mg and they lingered. When your on 60mg a day they seem to just disapear alot more faster which in my common sense ( the less a pimple stays on your face, the faster the mark fades)    Thats my opinion though, do your own research and feel out your doctor. I started to clear on month 4 when I got upped to 60mg and now I'm either with no active acne on face or just a single pimple. Maybe it was the dosage accumulating, Idk. I just want everyone to have the best experience possible because I know what its like and im going through it right now.
  7. if my skin turned perfect right now i would be the happiest guy in the world and just go out and make up for all the lost years i suffered rbh i wouldnt be depresed at all id be ON TOP OF THE WORLD forgot all the money in the world i just want my skin back really but thats cause im ocd and i think we all are cause i see alot of successful guys and girls with beatiful spouses with acne and scars so i think this forum is a forum full of mentally ill people from acne. theres a bunch of people with acne that just continue living there life like demar derozan, chris bosh, people u see at restaurants, bartenders.   I think this forum feeds negativty onto all of us, we hear one person feeling like there life is ruined because of acne scars and then we think were ruined too because they think it.    This site has good things and tries to help and u can have some suport but i think its filled with people with mental illness cause alot of people have acne and scars and live super happy lives and dont even care at all.   I did once, i had some scars i didnt care i had a beatiful girlfriend. but now im back inthe cycle and it just cause more acne BECAUSE STRESS is the BIGGEST cause of acne. dont let anyone tell you otherwise.
