What planned dosages do you have to take? I am thinking about going on a low dosage (5 to 10 mg a day)


I hope you were off the accutane when you were out on doxy? You absolutely cannot mix te two they should have given you a penicillin.


Doctor told me i should keep taking my accutane - where did you hear that you can't take both together? It was only a week long course so maybe its different? (compared to being on doxy long term for acne)

I am on the 10th day. I have no dry lips at the moment. I am really scared.

All the medication I have taken so far work for first-two weeks and then stop working (my body does respond at all).

I dont want this to happen when I am taking accutane (40mg).
I have no dry lips. Do you guyz this it is working for me?


10 days is nothing, don't worry if you're not seeing sides yet (be thankful! lol). How much do you weigh? im 66kg and started on 40mg too, The dry lips will probably come in the next week or 2 - try to buy some lip products in advance cause chapped lips are annoying as hell.

What planned dosages do you have to take? I am thinking about going on a low dosage (5 to 10 mg a day)


40mg for the first 3 months, then i dunno what he's gonna give me for the rest of the course. Why would you take such a low dose? If you're gonna take a drug like accutane surely you may as well do it in the way that's known to work?


I weight 70 kg and 6 ft tall. I am just worried cause it is costing me $70 every month.

What planned dosages do you have to take? I am thinking about going on a low dosage (5 to 10 mg a day)


I am not a doctor buy I would say that take 10 mg. 10 mg is low dose.

There is no harm taking both antibiotic and accutane at the same time, I had a terrible initial breakout in 2nd week of accutane and my derm did put me on Azithromycine for 2 weeks and i wasn't taken off of accutane. I took them both 250mg azithromycine and 20mg isotretinoin. And i got rid of my very bad initial breakout in just 1 n a half week.

Good to know, thanks.


UPDATE: I guess i'm more than 2 months in now, awesome :)

My lips went through an awesome phase of barely being dry for the last couple of weeks - unfortunately that has ended and now they're SUPER dry.

My acne is way better, i've been wearing a vest to the gym without the fear that people will think i have some deadly disease lol. Scars are still everywhere but my body acne has decreased HUGELY and facial acne is far less too. Love this drug so far.

Only bad side is that i seem to need way more sleep - 8 hours never feels like enough

Glad to see you are handling it well with a proper attitude. You really just gotta embrace and go for it. Second course here and I am here to tell you-you will be stunned when its all said and done.

oh and to add to your chapstick collection-I think carmex is the best. I don't think aquaphor is anywhere close to the product some folks on here say it is. Best of luck

Glad to hear that your acne is starting to clear up for you. Also keep up the postive attitude mate.

Mate what dose are you starting at?

Also if you want I could send you a few pictures, before/early weeks and current, of my chest and shoulders to show you the improvements they've had. I remember you were bothered about your body acne, so maybe that could give you encourage about the results it can bring. I'd send it as a private message though, not that comfortable to post them in a general forum setting.

Good luck with your course

Took some of these photos to monitor my gym progress rather than accutane progress so you'll have to excuse the flexing but i was quite shocked by the difference so far:

Before: These were actually back in april so they dont show you the worst my back ever was:

After: This is now - i started accutane on september 12th so im about 2.5months in. The lighting hides a lot of scars but even considering that, my back looks way better

Do the pimples on your back dry and scab up before flaking off?

I vaguely remember something from the Isotret pamphlet that said that in rare occurrences taking both can lead to increased cranial pressure.

 

I'm pretty sure it only applies to taking long-term antibiotics and possibly only tetracyclines though.

Nothing as such happened with me as I took azythrimycine for just 2 weeks and as soon as i got rid of my initial breakout I left that right away and continued the same amount of isotretinoin.
