In Topic: Roacctuane Question/first Timer

I am on day 22 and haven't had a I.b either. I'm on 30mg a day and still use a very light amount of topical to avoid the I.b. not totally convinced my derm was correct in telling me not to use it, at this low dosage my skin is not yet sensitive enough for it to do any harm, will slowly come off it over the next month before my dosage is upped

In Topic: How To Meet Girls When Dealing With Acne?

I can relate to your story. I have certainly been through periods of my life like that and although I have had long term relationships, I have self esteem issues, and generally more acne induced stress than deserved. I have just started on accutane and the results so far are terrific. I really really wish someone had told me to go on it years ago, as I wouldn't have as much scarring as I do today and feel I could have achieved more in all areas of my life. As you know it affects your entire lifestyle. I can't tell you the number of times I have had to take days of work, cancel nights out with my friends, miss opportunities with girls and lack the motivation to do anything productive through this disease. I really advise you to go on accutane. Don't be put off by the scare stories, check out the statistics yourself, it's a miracle and yes there are some bad side effects but you are monitored regularly and low dosage has less side effects. It's a risk worth taking.
