In Topic: Accutane Hairloss Recovery + My Story

i think diane 35 and spiro could have also caused your hair to fall out as i took diane 35 when i was 16 and my hair fell out in ways i couldnt even imagine. This is why i am so reluctant for accutane. my mom almost 70% of her thick hair on diane 35 and i dont care if a doctor says its an anti androgen, we both lost hair on it. my hair came back but i am sure diane 35 caused the issue with you, and the addition of spiro and accutane is so stressful on the kidneys and body. i hope you are recovering well and your post is appreciated. I know endocrinologists get to the root of the problem.

In Topic: Which Birth Control Pill Have You Had Success With?

29 June 2013 - 11:05 AM

I take Belara and i'm on my 6th month and my skin is almost 100% clear. I used to get cystic under the skin pimples on my chin. almost always mid and towards the end of my cycle. used to break out on my cheeks sometimes too, they always left red marks.

Now I have a few marks left over which heal but they dont bother me as much because i can cover with concealer etc.

im not 100% sure if its because i stopped a previous medication (glucophage) which my family and i suspected was aggravating my skin, because as soon as i stopped taking it my clean stopped breaking out.... the pill though has made my skin less oily, more soft and more 'normal' looking. Its a great pill for someone considering taking the pill to clear up acne, its fairly new though and some doctors dont know about it. I used to take diane 35, its good but i had side effects which were bad so i stopped.

the docs offered me YAZ or Belara and two of them were in favour of belara especially because i am so frightened of weight gain (i'm trying hard to keep my weight down) and as i suffer from PCOS it makes it doubly hard. But Belara is pretty good for acne clearance.

In Topic: The Story Of My First Month On Accutane - Heart/swallowing Issues

i suggest you stop taking the medication because although i have not taken accutane, i have never heard of this, but this drug might be causing the issues you are mentioning and in my opinion they sound quite severe/scary and you do not want to risk anything right now. stop taking it for sometime and see if this persists.
