So When Can I Start Drinking Again?

08 January 2014 - 12:02 PM

I am done with accutane!! :) I stopped on December 18th. When is it safe for me to drink again?




Almost Done With Accutane!

19 November 2013 - 05:20 AM

So I'm on my last (6th technically) month! My skin is 95% clear (With some odd scarring near my jawline) and I hardly even get pimples anymore. 


I had to stop for 3 weeks after my 1st month due to blood test problems but since that time I've been on it for 5 months continuously.


Also, I missed one day (permanently) because I accidentally crushed the pill when I was trying to get it out of the package...is that ok?


I've heard horror stories about post accutane breakouts. What should I do to prevent this? I've gone through 6 months of chapped lips for this...the acne better not come back. My last blood test is a week from now.


Just for reference, my weight is around 130 lbs and I've been taking 40mg a day. I've also tried to make an effort to moisturizing my face every morning from month 2 onward (I hate lotion it makes my skin feel really oily).


(bolded because that's the super important stuff)

Taking Food With Accutane

04 September 2013 - 12:39 AM

So the first month I did not take my pill with food. I got my blood test back and it showed elevated liver enzymes. Is it because I didn't take it with food?

On my 2nd and 3rd month (now) I usually just eat my meal halfway, and then take the pill, and then finish the rest.

Did the fact that I didn't take it with food the first month kind of halt my progress? Because I'm barely seeing improvement and I'm in the middle of my 3rd month....

Almost Done With My 2Nd Month.

So I got my blood test back and I am free to start a 3rd month! I start my next month on August 21. 


However, I'm not seeing huge improvements. :/ I'm still getting whiteheads every single day. Will the 3rd month be the breakthrough month? That's what I've seen from a lot of people.

Temperature For Storing Accutane

26 July 2013 - 06:04 PM

So I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow. Taking a flight to Dallas, and then Denver. Can I carry Claravis onto the flight? I assume so. Also, it says I should keep it between 68 and 77 degrees F. I'll be on a tour bus for the majority of the time, and will probably keep it in my backpack with me, instead of keeping it in a storage place under the bus, where it might get hot. Is that ok? Also, I cannot keep it in the hotel because this is primarily a tour bus vacation, we'll be jumping multiple hotels so I cannot simply just leave it there. Is this all okay?
