  1. Accutane and alcohol

    I drink at least once per week on 50mg.. you'll be fine.
  2. September / seasonal acne

    Are you still using the gel regularly? It's possible that seasons affect acne.. mines most definitely get's better in winter because I don't sweat as much!
  3. What kind of acne do I have

    This isn't a good pic at all so we can't really comment tbh.
  4. Yes I have been taking accutane without going on BC, I am nearing the end of my second month and have had no problens with this, my doctor let me do this. I am now on BC though because I have become sexually active. My doctor allowed me to swear Abstinence basically.
  5. Roaccutane - Day 48 (50mg)

    Hey guys! Figured you all deserved an update. So I go back to the hospital on the 31st of this month to get my blood levels checked again (they do it every 8 weeks here) I'm hoping to ask to get bumped upto 60mg. side effects: okay so obviously this month I got bumped upto 50mg, and I will say that I have noticed a difference in terms of dryness. My lips are seriously dry and peel a ton, I wake up often having bit my lips during the night and they are bloody. My face is MUCH more dry this month, more so that I need to moisturise through the day sometimes. I have noticed I am getting cuts from the slightest things like for example if I scratch my face or bang into something. My body is much more itchy this month, everywhere, and I find I have scratch marks from where I have scratched. Definitely been an increase in joint pain this month, my back feels rather stiff amf generally just sore.. it isnt debilitating though and I am still working out twice a week with regular 5 to 8 mile walks per day. Ive noticed a huge change in how thirsty I am... I am so bloody thirsty it is unreal! I am actually feeling pretty lethargic tbh, moreso than last month anyway.. I find myself not feeling bothered to do anything, mentally I am still rather impulsive and apathetic. skin update: things are good, really good. I still have some comedones and larger papules around my jaw area and perhaps 6 LITTLE comedones on my right cheek along with 1 papule and maybe 10 to 15 little comedones on my left! I started accutane with about easily 40 to 50 on each side of my face. I have 2 spots on my forehead and slight texture issues which I know will resolve.. its clear for the most part though. I have NO spots or comedones on my chin at all or on my chest and back
  6. Its going so well honestly. I have had very little side effects and mainly just extremely dry lips, so far so good and I hope it stays that way. My skin seriously is beautiful in some areas, like perfectly smooth. I'd say my closed comedones (which was my MAIN issue to begin with last year) have decreased by 50%. I'd recommend Accutane in a heartbeat. Oh and I started with 30mg first month and now 50mg until I finish. Check out my blog, I document everything at least once per week.
  7. Honestly I'm glad you brought this up. I was on Differin for 8 months, came off it in Feb and went on another retinoid (Isotrex) for 3 months, came off it in May, face was a MESS. Started differin again in June for 2 months which made my skin no worse or better really THEN I started Accutane in August! I still broke out at the beginning of my Accutane course but not hugely at all. I have STILL been using my Differin every second night alongside being on accutane and in way I do feel its helped prevent a significant outbreak. I know your meant to not use harsh products on your face whilst on Accutane but I have had absolutely NO adverse reactions or anything and now I only use Differin every 3rd or 4th evening but I have 4 month left of my accutane course and right now I can say its the best thing Ive done. Good luck man.
  8. Feed back for Isotrexin Gel

    Oh yeah I have done my research on Accutane endlessly. It wasn't an easy decision for me to make, I had to weigh up the pros and cons. I've had acne for 15 years (I'm 25) and to say it's made my life hell is an understatement. But yeah I've been on it 38 days now and I feel great, I'm actually on medication for my anxiety and depression as well and I have had NO worsening or anything in terms of my mood. I genuinely feel great! I feel a lot of people worry too much about their course and read SO many negative and fearful reviews that they end up experiencing negative side effects like really bad initial breakouts and horrendous joint pain and moodiness etc, but I went into this journey with a huge open mind BELIEVING that this WILL work.. and it is.
  9. Roaccutane Day 37 (50mg) LOL!!!

    I just really want to tell this funny story about what happened last night. On my first date with this guy and ended up kissing, he had a bit of a growth. My skin is a TON more sensitive and this morning I've noticed some skin on my chin has been ripped off by his beard But yeah, be careful with kissing guys! Hahahaha.
  10. Day 34 pics.

    Thank you Sasch! It's doing amazing things already xx
  11. Feed back for Isotrexin Gel

    My honest opinion is DON'T. Do not try it. However realistically if your doc has prescribed it perhaps he/she feels it's a good option then perhaps give it a go? What else have you tried? I tried Isotrex gel.. which is the same WITHOUT the antibiotic (erythromycin) I used it for 3 months to give it a good shot and believe me I had exhausted everything so it was really "my last hope", well it messed up my entire face and NOW I am on Accutane, which is working for me. I guess we need to go through these battles and hurdles to get to the end result though, if I hadnt tried Isotrex then I would probably not be on Accutane. Check out my blog, I wrote my experience about Isotrex on there every week I was on it. Good luck. Again that is MY experience with it.. it may work for others.
