Wow, absolutely incredible...

The difference is amazing, but what's more amazing is that you can almost see your confidence building in every photograph.
 

 

True that, everytime i take my new photographs I feel much confident and satisfied. Though I'm still scared of going in front of mirror biggrin.png. Will do that when I'm all cleared and spotless. smile.png

 

 

 

 

I think that your improvement it's incredible . Moreover very fast and whitout taking an excessive dose .
you should be very satisfied wink.png

 

Yes, pretty much happy with the results so far. Although my lower back pain is still intense, no problems, nobody sees n feel my lower back pain :D All they see is improvements on my face day by day which really makes me happy and confident. :)

Damn dude, congratulations. Things seem to be going really well for you. I'm especially interested in your log because you also started off at 20mg for the first month.  Do you think this helped in the long run? Did you get impatient at first? I think I'll get bumped up to 40mg next month and I can't wait for my skin to improve as much as yours has.

 

Also, do you mind me asking your weight? I'm just wondering to compare the strength of our dosages. Thanks!

 

Keep after it!

I did get impatient in the very first month as I had a very bad initial breakout right in my first week. I kept on lurking myself on this forum to boost up my confidence. I kept on looking for success stories rather than side effects and horror stories of this medication which helped a lot to hang in there. I weigh 120lbs. One more thing i would like to suggest that STOP eating junk in your first month, eat healthy as much as you can. Though that cannot prevent you for the IB but once your body gets used to the medication and you start seeing the improvements, you would love to eat anything you want. Add a tiny fatty meal when you are taking the medicine as it absorbs quickly with fats. This would help reduce the chances of having severe headache, fatigue and dizziness. 

 

I have done with my 4th month and into the second last month. Things are going great and I'm loving this, going out with friends and family. Parties, weddings etc. Never had these feelings in the past 10 years. Accutane has really changed my life. I hope this remains the same when I'm off accutane.

 

That is all to report for now. New pictures will be up in a day or two. :)

Hey people! I haven't posted for quite some time. Been busy with work n stuff and yeah didnt have anything special to share with you guys. But FINALLY!!!!! the journey has come to an end and I'm done with a 6 months course of isotretinoin yayyy!!! my skin looks amazing, haven't had any breakouts for past 3 months or may be more. The marks have also gone away, just very few of them remaining and will fade away. Accutane has literally cured my nodular and cystic acne. My lower back pain is also gone, no dryness on lips and eyes, everything is just about perfect. I will upload some new photos for you to see yourself. May be in a day or two.

 

Cheers

3 Months post accutane

 

Alright, I just saw a post from Acne.org on facebook and thought that I should update my log :P coz only one thing will get you back to this forum that is acne on your face and thanks to accutane that I'm all cleared. It's great, nothing on my skin for 3 months of post accutane, every single sign of accutane has gone, no back pain. I'm living a happy life, partying, hanging out with full of confidence, taking photos (closeups) with my phone :P 

 

I wish all of you very best who are currently on accutane. Hang in there and stay positive and you will see drastic results, not over night but by the end of your course. It takes time. 

 

Cheers :)

Hey Taners! :) My friend who referred me to this site rightly said, "you will never get back to the site once you finish off your course" and he was spot on. 

 

Just to let some of you know who are currently on accutane or planning to get on that I'm all cleared now, its almost 1 and a half year of post accutane and I never ever had any tiny little breakout since then. The spots are gone so are the after effects. If anyone of you wants any type of help regarding your course, I'm here to respond. 

 

Cheers
