My accutane log male 18 latino Sotret

this is all about my accutane experience. My name is Denis im 18 and have mild to moderate acne. I hate everything there is about acne tho people i say i overreact those same people never had acne problems so they wouldnt know. Well im on day 9 of my medicine (sotret) and my acne got pretty bad my forehead is loaded with pimples and i have a good share of them on my cheeks. Oh yeah m only on 20 mg so far. im also getting a couple of pimples on my chest where i dnt get too many and my shoulders and lower back where ialso dont get too many, is this normal? As for side effects only mild dry lips. I know accutane is supposed to cure acne on your face but is it supposed to cure your body also? This is all for today wish me luck ill update soon :)

Yes it is very good at treating even the worse cases of acne, excpecially back acne and chest.

it worked excellent for me, i was completely clear in 5 months of the stuff, pretty much clear on the 3rd month acutally.

its a miracle.

that it says it may worse before it gets better when on it, thats just one of the side effects, dont worry about it.

Day 10-pretty much the same thing as yesterday im still broken out and cant wait to see my derm so he could pop these things i rather not touch them myself. The fact that i broke out like this i guess means its working because from what i know it gets better before worse. So hopefuly these things calm down because this just sucks i havent had this many zits on my face in a really long time.

And well i was having sex today with my girl, and i got extremely tired and my head was spinning like crazy this never happened before so i blame tane, anyone know if this is normal im also wondering when the wost part of acne (what im going thru) is over?

would appreciate please reply, thanks

Day-13 So the rediculous breakout has calmed down. I went to the derm today and he messd wih my face as usual and now my acne looks to b getting dry. I also have to get my blood test in order to get a higher dose of this stuff. 20mg i guess can only do so much. Starting to get pain in the lower back. I always had a bad back but now its just getting pretty painful especialy at the gym or at work where i do nothing but sand and sell donuts (dunkin donuts) my lips are getting a little dryer as well so thats always a great sight"/. The derm said that i should b clear in three months.....ughhh i hope hes right, im sick of this acne state of mind i have at times

Yea its not to bad sometimes i think the tane plays games with emotions but i just brush it off.....Im also on a different dose than you are im taking 40mg on odd days and 80mg on even days, so i cant really tell you what to look out for except for the dry lips...... Im actually not clear yet have 2 actives but they will prob be dried out by tomorrow............Idk man that sucks that you got some back pain i haven't ran into any probs wit my back yet...I know how you feel on that acne state of mind it will diminish after time just have a little bit of patience with a positive attitude...

Day 52-

Yeah its been a while since iv posted,...actually its been

pretty damn ong lol, but so far no great results. Dry lips is an eveyday

thing and my dose is now 40mg. Surprising my face is not that dry. Im

drinking alot of water these days and i thik thats why my face isnt so

dry. My chest is breaking out a bit tho:( i dont really get backne any

more but i got a pimple on my back today. I guess i have to be patient

but if this persists by next month ill get a little worried. I just hope this

medicine works, because if it doesnt i wont know what to do because i dont

know what else i can take to get rid of this. Best of luck to everyone im going

to start posting more often

Hey! I have had acne since I was in eighth grade (now in tenth) not to long but to all you who have had acne know that a long time. I don't have SEVER acne such as NOdular acne or cyst, I mean any acne is BAD acne but still it ain't that bad. So I went to the derm today to get a chemical peel and they recommend Accutane the derm. said, "YOu will get some break outs before getting better," I thought, "Wait this medicine is going to give me acne before it gets better." I wasn't to comfortable with that. On a scale of 1 to 10 ten being really bad, what would you scale the break outs you get after taking the medicine, keeping in mind the acne you had before, how much worse did it get?

i dont have severe acne, cysts either. But yeah your probably going to break out, i did. I would say 7 out of 10 in terms of bad. I recomend you take this medicine its worth the bs it puts you thruogh.
