In Topic: I sooo want to go on ACCUTANE!

I hate my dermatologist  confused.gif


Saw him today, and he was like "No way on earth you are going on Accutane. If you want clear skin, you should get a chemical peel, for a series of 3 or more treatments." I REFUSE TO GET ANOTHER CHEMICAL PEEL! I don't want my skin to erupt again.

But he also recommended that I take Acnezine??  eusa_eh.gif
Isn't that an acne supplement? I heard so many good things about it.

My acne isn't that severe, i would say it's mild-moderate, with persistent whiteheads and pustules. And my skin gets oily as hell ewww sad.gif Do you think it's possible for me to go on a low dose accutane just so it can control the oilyness and combat my acne completely? The topicals are okay, but they don't seem to be doing enough.

I know accutane has serious side effects which can be fatal, but I'm willing to TRY IT OUT. I've read so many successful stories about it on here



You and me both!  I have the same severity type as well.   I have asked twice and got turned down both times only to try other antibiotics, one of which (bactrim DS) i refuse to take because i know antibiotics are only short term.  Which is why i never understand why insist on taking it anyway if the shit is just gonna come back :S   So frustrating.  I know people have to go on multiple courses for accutane but the remission between the courses are a lot longer than that of an antibiotic.


Antibiotics are a pain in the *ss. I used to take Doxy and it didn't do ANYTHING, except make me feel nauseous. I don't get all the hype about the symptoms from Accutane; bloody nose, fatigue, dry skin what's the big deal? I can take that and college starts soon, I want my skin to look decent.

if you want to make your acne worse but still stay healthy, drink some colostrum everyday. and if the derm tries to get you on antibiotics just say you have gut flora/stomach problems and that you've reacted badly to them when you received them some other time like when you had the flu or after a surgery. thats what i did and i walked in to my derms office the first day and walked out with a prescription in less than 15 minutes.



THANKS!

wow you know what's weird? before i went i said to my skin "please behave for at least 3 days" and it listened to me! the whole time i was there it was dry as a bone and i looked almost decent. but when i came back it broke out like crazy sad.gif probably from the sunscreen (it wasn't oil free but what could i do, i didn't want my face to be beet tinted from being in the sun 24/7)
