Im Back :) Ive also been off Accutane for 1 month and.......

I had trouble logging in and couldnt get on for the last month. I tried forgot password and just kept getting errors. I finally wrote and got someone to fix it for me...... I have not deserted you guys.

However im still clear as can be from my Course of Accutane. I did get on nice big one 2 days before my Wedding I was all upset and crying I thought it wasnt working I had been off for a week at that point.. My Makeup lady was good and covered it up nicely ill post a pic below.. I have now been off for a month and my skin is looking amazing its still very smooth and I barely have any redspots left. I still have a little dry skin no oil has came back yet so im still very happy I did it.

Thanks.... I know I don't have acne anymore and don't need to come on here but I hated coming on and reading all the negative stories. I read so many stories about it not working or how your gonna die or kill yourself if you take it. I'm not saying it works for everyone and that people don't experience bad side affects or worse but I didn't and so far its still working for me. I have not regretted a single day of my course it has given me back my confidence and then some and so far has been well worth it for me. If I should have to do it again in the future I would without a doubt but lets hope not cuz I hate swallowing pills all the time that is my only gripe.

Yes, all the negativity can get a bit overwhelming, especially for people that are considering Accutane. Most are cured and don't wish to be around the negativity any longer so that leaves us with...well you said it yourself. Skin looks great and no doubt your confidence is high...hell your married now! :)

Thank you :)

My experience was great. I started to clear up right away I did get one here and there but they would be small and gone in a day or so. I had a little joint pain at first and a few headaches throughout but nothing major, it was well worth it. Mostly I just had dry lips and hands but I do hair so my hands are always wet which made it worse. Ive been off for a month and still have somewhat dry lips and really dry hands the cold weather is making it worse.

Your results are fantastic. I don't have a problem with accutane. It helps a lot of people. Hell, my brother took it for a month when he had bad acne and it cleared him up great. But some people with different skin types it can create huge problems. For me, my scaring became much more apparent and I got all kinds of other stuff. I've been off the drug for about 2 months and these new problems have not subsided at all. More than blaming accutane, I blame the bad dermatolgist.

Yes they are a pain I kept looking in the mirror thinking if these damn marks would just go away my skin would be perfect...keep your head up they will fade in time I still have a few but they are very light now and easy to cover. I dont have to even where foundation anylonger but im addicted to it :)
