In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

My skin is on the drier side, but it's not bad.
And hey, I still remember how oily it was back in the acne-days.

For my skin, I use a tea tree oil foam (so nice when you wash off with cold water).
Then, I have an anti-aging moisturizer I use (I have the night and day version of Nivea Q10 - was in offer at the time and works well).

My face is then smooth and softer for the day.

To add to what I was saying, when our body is in stress mode, it's priority is to just try and survive.

It's not to have a fully functional penis.

I think Mother Nature kind of controls things like that... it doesn't want 'sick' people to reproduce.

I wouldn't be surprised if we (as we are at the moment) would be unable to produce a baby.

 

But I'm not trying to add worry.

I just want to point out what should be obvious.


Yes, we all want amazing sex all the time.

But there are a lot of things we have to lose out on, for now.

I'm gonna try no fap as well. Do yall suffering with ed also notice a change in your penis head. Mines has wrinkles in it and it kind of burns a bit.

Also with the sort of erection I get which is only from constant stimulation, the head doesn't get full and hard. The rest is somewhat hard put can't stay up.

 

Anyone similar? Also to thoses of you who do no fap for a while, does it improve your erection??? The longest I tried it was for like 5 days. I get an urge but still can't perform.

 

Did anyone try progesterone cream to see if it helps??

You have to be patient.

You're not going to fix anything in 5 days.

 

Let's remember that porn isn't the only issue (though everyone is best off without it).

Most of us here (if not all) have fatigue (adrenally) and depression/anxiety.

Ejaculating in the biggest issue.

 

I've noticed sex is better if I don't do it often.

If I tried to do have sex every day, it wouldn't work.

Because we're recovering,

 

There's nothing wrong with our dicks, themselves.

It's hormones and mental (not meaning psychological).

But having sex often/masturbating often is going to wear us out further.

 

We have to give it time.

It's like, I'm tired as hell after work during the week.

Unless I have a genuine urge, there's no point in me trying to have sex.


I used to wank just because I thought I should.

 

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, simple as.

Malabsorbtion can cause vitamin D and B12 decencies (amongst many others), which are responsible for a host of nasty symptoms. It can take months of supplementing with vitamin D before your levels are back to healthy standards (and one can be symptomatic even at the lower end of spectrum still deemed healthy). Even once levels have stabilized, it can takes several more months for symptoms to resolve themselves. Treat yourselves as if you are vitamin deficient, supplement with everything you can, eat healthy and eat LOTS, and make you get a tonne of protein. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as well as gluten and excess sugar. Make exercise a lifestyle (seriously, it seems as though many of the body-builders who've used Accutane at high doses for multiple courses don't seem to suffer the same extent of side effects). If you're having mental health issues (and I suspect everyone in this thread is to some degree), go on an anti-depressant. Low sertonin levels will amplify your issues by tenfold. Willing to bet that a lot of the "brain-fog" people complain of is low serotonin levels and/or nutrient deficiencies.

Hehe, by the way, first thing I did upon returning from the hospital was phone a lawyer. After all the misery this drug's inflicted upon me over the last two year, damn right I'm gonna try to sue.

 

Hey man, im sorry you got diagnosed with Chron's and i sincerely wish you the best. I have family members with that and it was very brutal! 

 

I wan't to point out what you said about serotonin levels. I am currently talking to the doc about adhd/anti depressants right now.  I am not sure what direction i want to go yet. 

 

No Fap is helping me dramatically right now. My brain fog is significantly less and the no fapping really helps with depression. I encourage people to read the nofap subreddit and try it out. All it takes is 2 weeks to really start noticing the benefits. Along with this I have added in running and my mind is feeling healthy once again. Im sorry to those with the bad joint pain it can be hard to exercise .

My dry hair and psoriasis symptoms are slowly going away. 

 

my doc told me to think about anti depressants/adhd meds for 2 weeks before going forward with a diagnosis. Ill report back in a bit, but please everyone on this thread stop jerking it! =) It helps lots. 

It definitely helps.

The amount of people that say their social anxiety/depression went away/reduced after no fap... it's too much to ignore.

I've had a couple of resets along the way.

Got to day 63 at one point.

I'm on day 14 now.

I have a girlfriend, so I'm not doing 'hard mode', but it helps a lot of things - mainly sex.

 

I'm also going to bed earlier and having a protein shake (pea protein) with some fruit (like pineapple and mango) and chia seeds for breakfast (blended).

As I feel pretty unwell in mornings, this is helping.

'accutanereallysucks' sucks more than Accutane.

Get the fuck out of this forum, bitch.
