Accutane Question

12 March 2014 - 05:28 AM

I saw noticeable improvement in my face at the 6th month mark. I am now at 8 months and due for 1 more month. My main problem is blackheads now. I have about 6 on my face at the moment whereas i normally had none. These blackheads stay for a long time and turn into big white heads and then eventually pop. Has anyone had this problem before?? it is weird lol and only ever experienced this on accutane

Been On Accutane 7 Months Now-My Review To Date

08 February 2014 - 07:23 PM

My weight is 75kgs, Doses have varied


Month1 10mg

month 2 20mg

month 3 20mg

month 4 30mg

month 5 40mg

month 6 50mg

month 7 50mg


I had moderate to severe acne

Month 1 showed improvement

month 2-5 broke out like cray cray the entire time. Have a nice group of scars from them (hyperpigmentation and indentation)
month 6-7 started to show improvement. Instead of breaking out once a day i would breakout 1-2 times a week. Things starting to heal now but still have around 3 pimples on my face at one time


Praying that i'll be clear of acne soon

its been a long journey

What you guys think?


cheers :)


Scarring From Accutane

07 January 2014 - 11:16 PM

Hey, i am half way through my accutane treatment. I have noticed alot of indented scars recently. I was wondering if there is anything i can do to prevent these indented scars. Will moisturizer possibly help?


please, if you know anything about this help me. I don't want any more scars than i already have.



Scarring On Accutane

05 January 2014 - 04:16 AM

Hey guys, Im on accutane at the moment and i have noticed that i have little indents from where scabs used to be. I have let them peel of naturally but sometimes when i am washing my face with cetaphil face wash, the scabs come off. 


My question for any post accutane users is, do these little indents/holes fill up with skin or are they now permanent scars



Increasing Accutane Dosage 40->60Mg

17 December 2013 - 07:44 AM

Hey. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience in increasing their accutane dose from 40mg to 60mg. Im going to try self-upping the dose due to my derm being super conservative (yielding minimal results). 


So can anyone who has experienced this dose change let me know if there were any changes in side effects, changes in blood work and most importantly any RESULTS.
