Sorry to hear about that Haley. Unfortunately i have heard about accutane causing MS and you can find similar stories by a google search. However, Cannabis Oil is very effective in treating MS as you can see in the video below.
I want to take Accutane but this thread scares me. But I'm sick of having acne.
I know acne sucks and i remember feeling just like you did but I would gladly take my acne back any day of the week if it meant I never took this stuff. I actually still have acne (not as bad) but i literally just don't care about it at all anymore. Having severe problems puts it in perspective. Even if people don't "feel" like they got side effects Accutane decreases brain function and lowers important hormone levels. Not worth it.
If you have cystic acne you may want to look into something called nicotinamide. It's a pill made of vitamins that cured my cystic acne after I came off of Accutane. I don't think they make it anymore but there may be similar products out there. Or you could just buy the niacin and zinc that it is made of and see how that works for you. Also you may want to look into a facial wash with CBD in it. Apparently something that may help our side effects is also the cure for acne as it destroys the bacteria that causes it.
I am just curious if anyone actually read the possible side effects of this medication before taking it? Most of your symptoms are clearly listed in the possible side effects of isotretinoin.
Should the pharmaceutical company be responsible for your side effects if you failed to read that they were possible?
I knew exactly what i was getting in to when I started taking Accutane and would never consider suing Roche.
It's like knowing good and well that you could be severely injured by jumping in front of a moving vehicle but doing it anyway, and then suing the driver.
Did you seriously come on here just to say this? What a joke you are. We're here trying to REPAIR the damage this drug has done to us. It hasn't been 226 pages of people saying they're going to sue the drug company. And no, permanent sexual dysfunction is not listed in the possible side effects. Neither is permanent skin problems, digestive problems, or permanent hair loss many people here have. No idea what you're trying to accomplish with your post but if you don't have anything helpful to say to us you really don't need to be on here.
@Nick Ryan - Thanks for weighing in and sharing some of your thoughts. From all I have researched it seems the CBD oils are nut nearly potent enough to receive the beneficial effects. Rick Simpson oil is what truly can change the body over time. Again, it's all relative right now as the studies are still very new with cannabis. In order to receive similar benefits I would guess one couldn't even come close to the same potency by using cbd and vaping a bunch. Still reading and researching a lot.
update from me: I tried the same CBD oil as Ottovisual (http://www.apollyon....ls/cbd-oil-10ml) but didn't feel any different on it. After half the bottle was empty I emptied the other half in one day and still didn't feel anything. Also never felt anything from smoking/vaping (haven't tried more than a few times).
I've not found a way to consistently feel good yet, although I feel good on most mornings or if I stay inside all day. Hot showers or exercising outside make my skin dry up, my body ache and my brain feel numb. For anxiety and sexual issues I have found abstaining from masturbation and porn to be very helpful.
I would just like to point out that any oil you purchase online is going to be extremely weak compared to Rick Simpson Oil. If you get an RSO with a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC you will be taking 500 mg of CBD and 500 mg of THC per day. Bamdaze with that oil you got had a total of 10 ml of 2.6% CBD and barely any THC. In my opinion it is just wasting money unless you can get the real thing which has had proven results for us.
Nice. Seeing as you seem to be one of the main researchers currently on cannabis compounds. Anything of note yet in regards to eating it raw being efficacious in comparison to heating it? I've posted the video's promoting raw cannabis previously but I was wondering if there was any science behind it. I still can't seem to detach myself from evidence based stuff, anecdotal evidence doesn't always cut it for me. Plus, because you can eat it raw in far greater quantities I would get through it faster but that will make me poor very quick and I am very poor currently -_-
According to the article I'll post below, raw cannabis has lots of medical benefits but it does not activate the endocannabinoid system. There doesn't seem to be much available information on whether raw cannabis is as beneficial as heated cannabis.
I don't really know much about epigenetics but i know DNA methylation plays a part in it. If you look at the propecia site a lot of people are claiming to feel better after trying methylating agents. Just read that CBD "increases global DNA methylation levels."
Really hope that when cannabis oil goes mainstream it puts Roche and other pharmaceuticals out of business. CBD has been shown to cure acne so hopefully certified pimple poppers (dermatologists) lose their jobs too.
SClippers you picked a good time to check in. Not sure if you've been keeping up with the thread but we've made some pretty big strides here over the last year. A couple people have recovered (or at least made tremendous improvements) using Cannabis Oil aka Rick Simpson Oil. If you're having psyche problems, CBD which is one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis has recently been shown to treat a very wide range of psyche disorders including anxiety and depression. Studies have also shown it to help repair brain damage.
Ya, I guess that sums up my thoughts on it pretty well. Believe me, I've got my feelers out for RSO. Will buy unless the source is ripping me off for it. It's hard to get enthusiastic about anything working though, going by my past experience. Still has the "something worth trying" feel to it IMO considering the studies and anecdotal successes. Way more solid than wishing on rainbow unicorn farts. Seems relatively safe too, as opposed to many of the somewhat rational, but risky things people have tried to help them.
I agree. This is the first thing I've seen that I think actually has a legitimate shot of helping. If you're looking for RSO I'd go to Colorado and buy the stuff there and turn it into oil yourself or maybe you can even find an RSO already made out there. I definitely wouldn't trust anyone selling the stuff on the street. They could have made it using butane or another solvent that doesn't work for Rick Simpson purposes. I think you mentioned friends that made it so if you talked to them about that maybe you could get them to make exact RSO. Also it is very important to have CBD and most people who grow don't have any in their plants (maybe like .3%). I agree that it is less risky than a lot of other medicines but cannabis oil can cause psychosis. Especially an oil high in THC and low in CBD. More reason to have a high amount of CBD in the oil to work as an antipsychotic against the THC.
And since you guys are talking about AIDS I just saw a video of a guy with AIDS taking RSO saying he is cured. He still has to remain on the stuff but all his white blood cell tests are coming back normal.
So based on what you guys are saying wouldn't the logical thing to do be some liver flushes followed by a high CBD RSO? Quite frankly I'm pretty skeptical about liver flushes considering all I've read about them is that the stones produced are simply a mixture of bile and the ingredients of the flush. However they definitely cannot hurt and some people are saying they've helped so I think I'll do one this weekend. Also no one can say for sure that RSO isn't a final solution because no one has even TRIED an RSO with a significant amount of CBD. And if you guys think the main reason we're sick is because of the liver, CBD is the cannabinoid promoting normal liver functioning.
I find it interesting that people have had success with low CBD Rick Simpson Oil when CBD seems to be the cannabinoid that helps restore brain and liver function, the 2 organs it seems like Accutane screws up the most. Hopefully an oil higher in CBD will have even better results! Here is a study showing CBD normalizing liver and brain function:
