In Topic: My Experience On Accutane

24 February 2015 - 12:13 PM

Well 20mg is pretty low dose so it may take longer to get a IB. But it doesnt sound like you had very bad acne before anyway so you may escape without having one. Good luck!


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Just started my 8th week on differin and despite some clearing, I am purging again.  I have to admit I am discouraged and downtrodden.  And what's even worse is that i'm disappointed in myself for being disappointed.  It's a never ending cycle.

 

Thank God I chose to work this week as it will keep my mind off my terrible skin. 

Im with you. Finished my third course of accutane in dec and Im still breaking out. On Differin again now and its not helping.  Never ending..


In Topic: Mixing Bp And Differin

Well I would probably stick with BP morning and Differin night but you could mix them if you really wanted. Epiduo is a topical of differin and BP mixed together. Again you'd probably be better off morning and night though.

Differin is a low strength retinoid so it will do both but it wont happen over night. I would just use the Differin at least to start with. You dont want to aggravate your skin and cause it to break out leaving you with more red marks. Just see how your skin looks after a couple months.

I would think you may be better off with a lower but longer course. That way you dont get as bad of side effects. But in the end that comes down to what you and your doctor think is best.
