Switching from Tazorac to Accutane

Recommended Posts

OK. My regimin consists of evoclin foam 1% in the morning, with tazorac and sodium sulfacetamide at night. It helps, but it's not enough to keep me clear. I recently ordered some accutane off the web, and was wondering how to transition between this regimine to accutane? The tazorac is obviously the harshest of these medications, while the evoclin and sodium sulfacetamide do not irritate my skin whatsoever. Here's what I was thinking of:

First week: Same evoclin + sodium sulfacetamide, very little tazorac and start slow with 5mg of accutane per day.

Second week: Increase to two doses of 5mg accutane for a total of 10mg per day, stop tazorac altogether, continue evoclin + sodium sulfacetamide.

Third week and beyond: up it to two 10mg doses of accutane, and continue evoclin + sodium sulfacetamide until acne clears, then wean off until I'm only on accutane.

Does this sound like a good plan? Or is it not a good idea to use tazorac with even a tiny dose of accutane? Please help, this is confusing, I don't want relive that awful "initial horrible breakout" phase...

If you want or need an acne prescription, see a doctor and get it legally. If you get prescriptions illegally online you could easily hurt yourself or waste your money.

- Independent studies have been performed on the sale of Internet-bought prescriptions. Often the prescription contains no active ingredient, little active ingredient, or in a worst case scenario toxic amounts of active ingredient.

- Drugs bought without a prescription can actually be a completely different compound from what the buyer intends.

Acne.org prohibits the illegal trade of any form of drug or prescription drug. If you see a post from someone selling a prescription, please report it immediately. Thanks.
