1st course accutane 1st feb-may 2008 spots come back 2nd course starting may 2009

i'm praying for you!! i hope it's just some odd spot. if you get another one soon, maybe it's not too late to just continue your course & finish out till 6 months. just an idea...couldn't hurt if you're that nervous.

1 week and 4 days after finishing accutane!

well all is going really well im still all clear touch wood! and skin is feeling great its still quite dry so i am still moisturizing loads! although my lips are much better only use my vaseline about twice a day now rather than about 5 times every hour LOL i have even applied fake tan and no spots and i had some bronzer and highlighter on my chest/collar bone area last nite and didnt wash it off as i went straight to bed after i had been out and no spots! i would of got tons of spots before tane by doing that! just want my skin to not be so dry now and it be perfect! im praying no more spots every day i check just to make sure LOL gotta stop being so obsessed!

I can def say i am so much happier since taking these tablets it was the best descion i ever made cant believe i sudffered for so long xxx

3 weeks since finishing accutane!

all still going well my lips are fine now i never use vaseline my skin is still quite dry though and i still have to moisturise about twice a day. I applied fake tan last night coz my party is tomorrow (changed my outfit again im now going as cavegirl!!) and i have woken up lovely and tanned without any spots! miracle normally when i used to apply fake tan i would always get spots on my arms or chest afterwards which was really annoying but i have none now!

i am stll 100% clear i have had a tiny spot since finishing but it went in a few hours so all is good! im trying to not think about spots dont want to jinx them back LOL hope your all doing ok xxx

I am so glad your course has been a success for you. Yay!

awww bless you thanks babe xx

sooooo been ages since i updated!! i finished tane on may 30th and have come on here to update to say i am 100% clear and soooooo happy my skin is lush it has settled down and i havent had any spots for a while now not even the odd one think my skin was just adjusting to being off tane. my skin is not dry at all now nor is it shiny or oily i went to a wedding 2 weeks ago and even in the photos taken of me in the evening my skin is not shiny nor has my makeup slid off or caked and thats after 11 hours of makeup on!!!

i am so please! i would recommend accutane to anybody whos acne is making them miserable and affecting their self esteem as it works so well!! i still mostuise once to twice a day with aqueous cream and wash with aveene face wash gel from boots and use nothing else on my skin dont even take fish oils anymore but i think i will start them again just coz they are healthy altho i eat fish LOL

i will come back again soon to update xxx :dance: :dance: hope your all ok and everybody is doing well on tane xx

Hey everyone well unfortunatly yes im back here again :rolleyes: i went on accutane and finished my course May 2008 my skin has been amazing so glowing and clear completely! i was over the moon but then in the last 2 months i have gotten the odd spot which has gone away within a day normally but now they seem to be coming back more frequently and staying around i have even had some cyst ones under the skin the ones that hurt :cry: i am so devastated i really thought that was it for good when i finished accutane but they are coming back again.

the good side is they arent as bad as before and i dont get any squeezy pussy ones at all i may get a lumpy one but you cant squeeze anything out of it i have got hardly any on my body touch wood i do get the odd one though its mainly my face and neck and last time i saw the dermatologist who prescribed me accutane told me if i ever get another spot to come back to see him so i have a doc appointment and im going to be re-referred again as i cant put up with this much longer! i didnt go on those tablets for nothing and have to have the hassle of blood tests for nothing before so im going to go back for more to beat it once and for all i so hope he gives me another dose i have heard some people need 2 rounds for the spots to go completely.

ughh i feel so ugly again its so horrible i have a photoshoot in 2 weeks theres noway i can go looking like this :cry: so lets hope the doc refers me back and i get another doesage.

i will update more on monday after the docs it feels so wierd being back here again!! xxx

Hello, what was your dosage before? Was it a low dosage, because I heard that with low dosage acne is more prone to come back. I just started for the first time and I do not want it to come back.

I saw a different derm than last time some woman who was having a bad day and was really moody and kept saying all the negatives of tane and oh you cant be on it forever etc so silly i have had like one course and got told by the other derm if spots come back i need a 2nd dose and to come back so thats what i did and she kept trying to put me off it anyways im starting it again gotta have my blood tests next tues and so should be starting my new course next weds/thurs time last time i was on 40mg for 4 months this time she put me on 50mg for 4 months hopefully it will be as good as last time and i wont get many side effects like last time but who knows as im on more this time round!

DAY 2

Well everything is fine so far yesterday i was more thirsty and felt flu like (achey,tired,headache,tearful) but it lasted about 2 hours and passed its so true these tablets are a rollercoaster ride! today i woke up and felt achey but now im up i feel fine again!

my skin looked clearer last night already on my face,neck however a new squeezy spot poped up on my back/shoulder area i will post pics of before i took the tablets later on today for you all.

DAY 3

well i feel better today yesterday i was up and down still went to the gym and did spinning even though it was abit harder than normal as i felt weaker but nothing major! if i remember last time it takes your body like a week to get used to tane then the side effects die down ;-)

My skin and lips are drying up already im not sure if my skin will be drier because i have been on tane before and it was still dry on my body anyway before i started 2nd course i have been using loads of aqueous cream though and carmex lip treatment also using eye drops for my eyes are they are bit drier too! gosh have wedding to go to in 2 weeks hope my skin isnt too dry for the fake tan or ill look a right patchy mess haha

apart from that spots are still clearing up nicely i love how they magically disappear or flake off! had a new one come up on my neck again at the back apart from that all good xxx

DAY 4

Woke up with sore throat this morning i remember i had this last time too but it soon passed so am hoping it will again too! just gotta get through the first 1 or 2 weeks then my body adjusts to it.

my skin,eyes and lips are still dry the good thing is i have no active spots and my spots on my face have all cleared up and dried up just some red marks left now yippe i didnt get an IB last time so am hoping i dont get one this time!

still feel quite achey and stiff but im not complaining bring on the clear skin! off to the gym in a minute so will see how i cope with running and body pump! :confused:

xx
