#3381729 Third Course Of Accutane

Posted by fotoguy on 10 September 2013 - 09:18 AM

I'm not using anything at the moment. Skin is clear and neither oily nor dry. My derm recommended Neutrogena Acne wash if the time comes when i need it. I'm really hoping for a year or two of not needing anything. Also, my derm reminded me that accutane continues to work for a while even after you've taken your last dose. Any pimples you may still have after your last dose are still getting the business end of the accutane and should clear up nicely. I'd take it again in a New York minute of needed. Very happy with the results. I used to wake up in the morning and immediately go look in the mirror for new cysts/bumps which were always there and my day would start off on a downer note. These days that burden has been lifted off my mind and life is good. Here's hoping you get the same results and are able to live without the stigma of stupid acne getting in the way of life. Cheers!

I'm almost finished with my treatment and last month had one huge zit pop up on the back of my neck. It hung around for weeks and finally went away. Now, I can say I'm 99.9% clear. You'll get there, just have patience.

Accutane continues to clear the skin well after you take your last dose. We have to remember that things don;t always work themselves out according to our time tables. Yes, it's a real bummer but reality, nonetheless. Just stick with the prescribed dosage, let the medicine do it's job and you will get good results.

Hi everyone, I'm a 43yr. old male and on my 11th day of 40mgs a day. Cystic acne is on the back of my neck and my back with a few on my chest, too. Today seems to be the on-set of my IB. Sucks.


Mosey Mom, your son doesn't want to talk about it because he's embarassed about his condition. When you start talking about it, it's like holding a mirror up and telling him to look at it. I know you only want what's best, though, and are only concerned with your son's well being. Don't bring up the subject unless he does and see how that works. We like to go through life unnoticed when things are bad.
