So I'm almost a full 3 months into my Accutane treatment at 80mg a day. The best advice I can give anyone taking it reading this is to really space out your dosages. I forget who told me this on this forum but he told me he was on the same dosage and spaced out his dosage more such as taking it in the morning and also at 10ish at night. I tried this because usually I would take it after a meal in the morning and also around dinner time around anywhere from 5-7. So I started taking the second 40m
So I figured I would give an update on my progress thus far. So last week I started using st.ives oatmeal and shea butter body wash and all I can say is WOW! My chest/back are horrendous and get dried out big time which is what I need but something about this body wash is really helping me see results. I don't know if it's the wash or the fact the accutane is finally working there but I feel better using the wash and over the last week my back has felt a lot better. A week ago it got really bad
Today is day 67 of my treatment at 80mg. I understand I'm probably going to get a lot drier than most people because I'm on the highest dosage but recently just as I felt things were getting better on my chest/back, it started to get really painful with big cyst like blood postules all over and I couldn't move even to reach certain directions so of course I had to start managing them. I called my doctor today and asked him (or I guess his assistant) if I should just leave everything alone and no
Hey guys. I'm just now starting my 3rd month on accutane at 80mg and I've seen some improvements on my face and a little on my chest/back but its still really bad so I'm wondering now that I have my face at bay what should I use as a body wash? It's weird that sometimes the best option is nothing for me and I've noticed sometimes using anything makes it worse, so I've stuck to just hot water in the shower which is my best option right now. What should I use while on Accutane, I don't mind the ex
Hey guys so I'm officially done with month 2 and on to month 3 of 80mg a day of Accutane. I feel a million times better and I'm finally starting to see mall results each day all over. I'm no longer in a lot of pain in relation to my skin such as big cysts all over my chest/back and neck as well. Breakouts hardly exist on my face and I think I'm starting to just clear up spots left from old ones. I live an active lifestyle and I've noticed that Accutane has really hurt my performance in the gym.
So it's almost been a full 2 months on Accutane at 80mg a day. Sure I have the normal side effects such as dry lips and dry skin. My face has gotten sooo much better, I'm not getting big cyst like acne on my forehead or cheeks at all and the worst part (my neck) is starting to clear up. Still a lot to go on the back of my neck but I'm starting to see big results on my face daily! As for my back/chest where it is by far the worst I think I'm finally over the huge cyst, really big dry bumps phase.
Hey guys so I figured I would start a log to learn more throughout this process and figure out some simple do's/don'ts while on Accutane. Just a background on me, I've suffered with acne all my life and it sucks I know. I took Accutane in high school and it somewhat worked but now I got so fed up throughout college with severe chest/back acne and big cysts around my neck as well. I'm lucky I don't have quite as many red spots on my face but when I do they're big. So I started an Accutane regimen
