Started Roaccutane 21 Feb 2008

Recommended Posts

After suffering from acne about 5 years, i have been put on roaccutane by my derm last week Thursday.

I am a male aged 21, i cant say i have many spots but rather red marks, old spot marks or scaring i should say, however i do get new spots now n then.

Im from the UK, and i wanted to ask acouple questions

When is the best time to take roaccutane?

I have more scaring then whiteheads, would this work on scars?

So far i havent seen no changes in my body, mood, face - so no side effects

I will keep updating

Also i am very new to this website, how do i add photos?

Regards

BoBo

Hiya just dropping by to wish you luck. My pharmacist at the hospital said to me to take the 2 tablets after breakfast so with food in the morning. I dont know if this is right for you your derm or pharmasist should of advised you maybe? but yeah definatly take them after food though. Im glad she recommeneded to me to take them in the morning as ive heard people that take them at night can have trouble sleeping?

I have heard that accutane doesnt help with scars unfortunatly but there are things you can use after you finished accutane for scars your derm should be able to advise or check out the boards here.

Remember to use tons of moisturiser all over your body and vaseline on lips.

Keep positive good luck ;)

Hey, thanks for you quick reply :)

My derm said i can take whenever i like but pharmacist told me morning with breakfast so i was a bit confused :S

Also i was told that acne helps tone your skin and help scars, but i cannot do anything for scaring until my course is finished

DAY 5 !

Hey guys, i usually take my pills in evening around 7 but relised everyone takes them in the morning so thats what i did today. (but i still took my pills y.day at 7) so there was about 13 hours between the two, i dont know if this is ok?

Have to say so far im only getting dry skin on my face.

Altough last night whilst sleeping i woke up in pain in my foot, i dont know if accutane was the cause.

So far so good, wish me luck :)

DAY 35

Right have to say, i dont update this regulary due to the fact i hardly go on the pc and also that nothing much has changed since i last wrote.

Well i can say now that i havent had a new spot for ages now, but my face and neck is sooooo red i cant explain, im on 60mg taking them in the morning after i had something to eat.

My lips are in very bad condition i just put alot of vaseline hoping it will work.

My face gets realy dried up quicker now

All of these negative points 1 month into it and still no positive signs,, arrrgghhhh !
