In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

01 May 2014 - 08:15 PM

BAXYL  is much better than hydraplenish  due to it being a  liquid hyaluronin acid , it lubricates joints and hydrates tissue  ,  it's the only thing that helps for the chronic cellular dehydration . As I mentioned before beef bone broth soup is good too. It replaces the natural hyaluronin  found in the body that Accutane depletes . I have also been using CBD oil ( Dixie Botanicals ) and I find it great for the brain fog that comes and goes.


I've been looking at Baxyl on a UK website but it seems very expensive. £45.65 without delivery and lasts for only 36 days.  That's rediculously overpriced.


I know it would probably be cheaper from Iherb but i'd still have to pay custom charges so it would still be pretty expensive.


For something you'd have to take continuously to get any benefit It just doesn't seem worth it.

I don't know if others know this (I haven't seen anything posted) but im 99% sure that the member jmsil who used to post frequently in this thread killed himself last year not long after the documentary "Dying For Clear Skin" aired in the UK.




I've only just found this out and It's completely floored me.


Really sad news.


RIP James.

Would losing weight and getting down to a really low body fat % remove the Accutane that is stored in our fat cells?

In Topic: Dark Circles From Accutane Must Read!

13 February 2013 - 05:31 PM

I just started my 5th month of Accutane, 80 mg daily. A few weeks ago I noticed dark circles, puffy bags and noticeable veins around my eyes. I have stopped treatment with 3 weeks remaining. According to this forum it's a common side effect but not many people reporting the dark circles going away after treatment. Please respond if you had the same side effects and if your dark circles / bags / veins went away after treatment or were permanent.



I finished Accutane May 01st 2010  and still have dark circles/veins under my eyes. I first noticed them within 2 months of taking Accutane.

Do any of you personally know, or have read about peoples side effects that cleared by themselves in time?

I've searched google but havent found any success stories which is really disheartening.

It's been over 2 years since i took accutane and my joints are killing me and my hair, face and body and are extremely dry (I could list a whole page of other side effects i've had but i'm not in the mood to do so).

I already take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, hyaluronic acid and drink lots of water, all which seem to have abosolutely no effect.

The internet is littered with stories of people suffering from all types of illnesses and disorders and what they do to cope.  Many times I read these stories and wonder if they maybe took Accutane in their youth.   People may be suffering greatly and not even attribute their illness as being a side effect of accutane.

For example, I recently stumbled across this guy's blog (this is from 2007) who dveloped an "incurable" autoimmune disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and he blogs about how he was able to reverse his state of degeneration.  It's interesting to note he mentions taking accutane at one point in his life and you have to wonder if that could be a primary cause of his autoimmune disease.  Who knows!

Short summary of what he did:
-Whole natural diet (low sugar vegan)
-Juice feasting
-Chanca piedra tea
-Coffee enemas
-Skin brushing
-Drinking more water
-Deep breathing


Thank for your reply but i really want to see posts about  people recovering from extreme dryness and joint pain all thoughout the body.

I was reading the topix Accutane forums about post Accutane damage and a user by the name of NCC seemed quite knowledgeable about Accutane and its side side effects but didn't offer a resolution.
