I had acne on my face, chest and back. I've been on Accutane for three months, going into my fourth and I'm pretty much clear now. I'm thirty years old, too, by the way. I think you're wise to start with a low dose. It's a tough drug to take but can have amazing results. Good luck to you!

No, I don't. I would be very concerned about ordering Accutane online as it would impossible to know exactly what you were getting and if it was safe. Also, I think it is important to be closely monitored while on this drug due to the risk of serious side effects. Have you requested a prescription from a dermatologist? It sounds like you would be a candidate since you have tried other treatments. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and I hope you get the results you are hoping for!

More than one month already, im takimg 20 mg now, 10 mg in da morning and 10 in the night. My lips now are really bad, i have red eyes and my nose bleeds everyday. My bk face shoulder and chest are clear, just one or two pimples. This thing is really strong. I will keep taking 20 mg for 4 or 5 months then i will stop taking it

I got nosebleeds in the beginning also because the mucosa of my nose was so dry. I started putting a small amount of Vaseline on a Q-tip and applying it to the inside of my nostrils and that seemed to help. I've also heard of some people using saline nasal sprays to keep it moist or a humidifier.

What are you using for your lips? I've had the best luck with Bag Balm, Vaseline, & Aquaphor. When my lips got really bad, I would use hydrocortisone ointment and that made a HUGE difference for me. Night and day. But follow the directions on the label--you can only use it a couple of times a day and you're not supposed to use it for a prolonged period, it's good just to get you through a rough patch.

Glad you're clearing up!

Im on my second month of accutane. I changed my dosage to 10 mg since my nose was bledding too much and it always happened at work. Right now im on 20 mg again just increased it yesterday. I had a horrible break up on sunday. Those pimples are diffeent than i used to have. They are small and my skin is red. My bk now is almost crear and i have a few pimples in my chest. I will keep like that and see wat happen. My nose doesnt bleed no more and no join pain,

For my lips im using regular chapstick, im thinking i broke up because of my new soap or just because i have not gone swiming in a while. It look when im under sun for a perid of time it helps my skin, thanks for everything i will keep updating

Ok i havent update this thread in months.

I stopped taking accutane (too many sides)after that i got a horrible acne for months untill last month i decided to take doxy again. Lucky me it helped me again, not a single pimple since then. Doxy works for me but for like 2-3 month and stops working. So what i do is a doxy cycle. I mean i take it for 3 months and then 1-2 months off. Of course when i dont take it i get alot of pimples. Will try to get a new antibiotic different than doxy and take it when i dont take doxy so my body never will get used to it. Note: accutane helped me really good with my backacne. Only took it for 3 months

I dont really use or post in this forum but if you guys have any question ask me. Will try to upload piks later of my back chest shoulders and face.
