well I am not going to continue with my 6th month of accutane. My nose just starts to bleed and my vision is getting very blurry. I figured if it does not work I will take it again. I do have one active zit so hopefully it clears up.

I've been off of the Accutane for a week or two. I am so upset...I have 2 large zits.. why can't I get little zits if I am going to get any??? One HUGE Ghandi dot between my eyes and a large cyst right beside the huge scar from my last cyst. DAMN IT!!! I am so upset...

Granted my skin feels better and i'm not as dry anymore and I don't get nosebleeds..why do I still have freakin acne?????? UGH!!!!!! I hate my face today!

Hey Beaty, so sorry to hear that! Are you using any topicals? Don't let it get worse while it's still quite good!

I am a little afraid to post this but I have no active zits.. knock on wood it stays this way. I do have a cyst that is small and won't go away and some small zits that arent bugging me. My lips are not nearly as dry as they were and all of the other symptoms seem to be slowly going away. I am not using any topicals because I am not sure what to use..any advice??

Hey beaty, that's great news!

You should ask your derm about topicals but if I may suggest ... 12% alpha hydrox souffle smile.gif Ulta usually has it, if not, try drugstore.com. I found it really drying if I used it twice a day but reviews looove it, so you can use it and adjust usage to your needs smile.gif

I did some research to see if memory loss was a known side effect of Amnesteem. According to RxWiki, which is detailed information written by pharmacists, I did not see this as a side effects. You should consider asking your doctor.
