Hey just joined this website today but have read some things on here and stories in the beginning.
Here is my story and problem.
I have been on accutane or whatever the brand is you get from walgreens some times different brand names but still plain accutane it has differed for me if I get clarvaris or the isotretinoin
I started November 17 and when I started I had tried everything in the world and nothing worked for me so I decided to try accutane. I did not have the worst acne just probably 5-10 spots all the time, and some cysts that would get large.
I started and had an terrible IB for about 2 month I had to go on pain killers and everything my face flared up and I was on prednisone and hydrocodone just to stop pain and try to bring down the acne. I weigh 130 pounds and was on 40mg for the for the first 4 month I was on 40mg and the last 2 month have done 60mg. My face is way worse then when I started accutane and my cysts that started from the original month have stayed they have gotten to a size that is pretty large mostly 3 of them and then a bunch of large red spots and this is month 6 on accutane! From the top of my lip to chin is one and the other is jawline circle about size of a quarter both are big and full but not rock hard and lastly another one size of a dime on my cheek bone below eye and lastly a small one on between my eyebrows close to eye. I am now going into month 6 and have lots of red spots and nothing is clearing and of course these large cysts my doctor is going to have me on 120mg this month which is double last month I was on 60mg and have been for 2 month. I get very very very slowly better I guess but nothing noticeable and If you say my face you would scream. I wash my face 1 time a day with cetaphil and sometimes I put on a topical benzoil peroxide not sure if I should though from what I read? Does anybody know anything that will help or what to do because I am completely lost I have been through so much and look worst then started and it doesnt seam like its clearly WHAT DO I DO! Really need help :'( Also I have been on prednisone 3 times for 15 days.
