accutane cont'd...

Hey! just giving a little update on my treatment. I've been on 60 mg for about three days now and no changes yet; but i will keep you posted. One thing i am loving about accutane right now is my face has not been oily at all! My complexion actually looks pretty good! the only thing that continues to bother me is two very red blemishes on my forehead. continuing to cross my fingers and hoping for clear skin to come sooooooon!! mythaaaaaai05

Accutane Tips :)

Hey everyone, Ive been on accutane for a while now so i thought id give the new users some tips about how to cope with the side effects!! Tip number one is to use LOTS and LOTS of vaseline on your lips. Dry lips is the most common side effect of accutane and it can be very very irritating and uncomfortable to be walking around with red lips all day. My secret weapon is a small tube of vaseline (pocket size) that i picked up from shoppers drug mart. Another thing you can use (not as good) is

Today i started my month four of accutane plus i had my first dose of 60 mg today! So far I haven't noticed any changes in my skin for the worse (thankfully) but i will keep you updated considering it is only day one of my higher dosage. Hopefully in a week i will see some changes!

More Accutane Tips

Hello, Just thought of a couple quick tips to add to the list! 1. Use SPF (a really good one) if going out in the sun for an extended period of time. I was out in the sun earlier like i had mentioned and i should have had on some sunscreen I would recommend SPF 45 because it works for a long amount of time and you won't have to reapply as much. And its pretty easy to forget! 2. I mentioned before that i get pretty flushed when im hot as a result of the medication im on. In times

accutane & sunburn :(

I'm on month four of accutane and today i got a SUNBURN! Will this affect my accutane treatment so far? or will it go away and be fine. i know sunburns cause cancer and i dont tan ever.. but today i was just out in the sun too long without thinking about it. + im allergic to sunscreen so i never put any on. NEXT time... i will wear a hat but i was far from home and didnt have one:( So will i be OK? thank you in advance:)
