Can You Use Products While On/after Accutane That You Previously Couldn't?

16 May 2014 - 12:12 PM

I'm starting accutane and I know cetyl/cetearyl alcohol breaks me out. It's in most moisturizers. I can't use Vaseline or Elta md either bc it seems like they just trap all the bacteria and make me break out. I know I'm going to need to moisturize when my skin starts getting uber dry, but I feel like I can't use anything really. Were/are you able to use products now that you're on accutane that you couldn't before?

Accutane And Birth Control

28 February 2014 - 06:38 PM

I'm thinking about doing a second round of accutane. I'm now 28 and the first one I had was when I was about 15. One problem I am facing is that birth control really aggravates my anxiety. I have tried numerous pills. I have tried the patch, as well. I am too scared to try any implants bc of the way I react to the pills. The depo shot didn't make my anxiety any worse, but I had my period the entire 3 months I was on it.  I'm sexually active and in a long time relationship so abstinence really isn't going to happen. Is there something else I can do? Does anyone have any ideas?

i was on accutane when i was 16 and it kept me clear for 3 years. ive been thinking about doing a second round.  my question is: how long did accutane keep you clear? and if youve been on it more than once, how long did the second time keep you clear?  thanks!

Diane 35 - Does Generic Form Work?

28 October 2011 - 08:34 PM

Thinking about trying diane 35 but my insurance makes me get generic unless i have a good reason to get the original. Soo my question is, does the generic form ( i dont know what it is) work just as well for acne? Also, are the side effects the same? (not the listed side effects but the actual side effects) thanks!
