Thereisalwayshope Accutane Log

10 September 2014 - 10:31 AM

Hello all. The name is thereisalwayshope. That is not my real name of course, but it is the name I try and live by. 

 

My story: I started getting acne roughly 4 years ago and it has been a never ending roller-coaster. Here are just some of the things I have tried to get some control of my acne. 

 

 

- Turmeric mask = did not help

- Aspirin mask = helped very minimally

- Tea Tree oil = did not help

- Sulfer treatments = minimal 

- Benzoyl Peroxide, 2% 5% 10% = keeps me 85% clear

- Vitamins = moderately helps

- Dairy free = did not help

- Gluten free = did not help

- Birth control = unknown

 

 

Those are just off the top of my head. So after many trips to the Dermatologist and normal blood work I decided to go on Accutane. I am however, under doctor advice still using BP for my skin because it is helping keep additional scars and acne at bay. I will stop BP altogether at about month 3.5 or so. I will play it by ear!

 

My dose is 30mg twice a day. My first dose was yesterday evening. I hope to keep this log updated with my progress. 

 


Supplement Regimen

22 January 2014 - 04:27 PM

Hello, I started supplementing B5 and L- Carnitine along with other supplements for my acne. I am seeing some good results in the 17 days I have been taking them. But I am wondering if anyone on acne.org has had success with this combination? If so how much do you take and how long till breakouts slowed and you saw good results? I am planning on staying on these supplements for three months until deciding whether or not the results are good or not.

 

 

 

I am taking:

 

Morning - 1500mg B5 + 500mg L carnitine

Evening - 1500mg B5 

 

 

I thank you for any advise you have for me in advance.
