accutane and antibiotics

20 November 2006 - 04:03 PM

I have been on Accutane for about six months topping out at 60 mgs.  I just ordered online without doctor. It really has not helped much because i still get cysts often.   Should I stop all together or I was thinking about taking antibiotics with only about 10 mgs a day.  Also when you come off of Accutane do you just stop all at once or slowly cycle off.  Thanks in advance for any responses.

Accutane and whiteheads

03 October 2006 - 04:16 PM

I have been on accutane for about 3 months at 40Mgs a day, I weigh 180lbs and am taking a low dose to be more careful (because of occasional drinking).  Anyway most of the larger cysts i had gotten have dissappeared but i now get a bunch of tiny whiteheads right under the skin.....which i stubbornly pick and turn they turn very red and inflamed.  What can i take to get rid of this little whiteheads....I tried toner and salyic acid but no real success.  THese are only on my forehead for some odd reason too!
