Recommended Posts

I start accutane soon. From thsoes of you who have taken it what else should I do.

Should i use the bp cream well on accutane? should i get any specific products to help (ie: specific face wash, or anything else), and is there any thing else that i should stay away from or go more towards.

I was on Accutane for about a 6 weeks. After about three weeks of using the product my face began to sting when I put the BP on. My face was feeling dry so I just used a moisturizer for the remaining three weeks and I wasn't getting any pimples. However, I began to get horrible chest pains whenever I stood up and I started getting blurred vision. These obviously were bad side effects, so I stopped taking the medication. Read the warning label and if you encountered any of the side effects it addresses contact your dermatologist immediately. Good Luck
