Accutane Journey - Mild Acne

Recommended Posts

so tommorow iam taking my 1st pill... i will take 30mg for 1 month and then 40 mg other 2-5 months i have 67kg ( my derm is saying that cumulative dose is a worldwide myth and she treated hundrets patienst successfully without reaching cumulativ dose that we should stop 1 month after acne stops, and i trust her because she is our friend and iam not paying single cent just for accutane)

my acne is mild few pimples a week but every two three weeks i have pimple wich leaves small scar. i tried just everything on my face from topicals so this is my last chance. i have acne from 13 and i will be 18 now

i have lrp cicalplast on lips, eye drops because i wear contacts, and i wake up put powder on, at night put powder of with gentle cleanser and then hydratation cream. my acne is most on my sides. and i have oily forehead and ultra oily nose, and i have seborea above my eyes.

my derm said that IB will not be or if will be, it will be small. but still that is biggest thing iam really afraid of!!! ;( other side effects? no, iam would do for clear skin everything( except getting bald lol, any bigger hair falling - accutane bye!) on the world so i dont even care about all these side effects only afraid of IB. wish me luck , i will update! and thanks for future tips

Accutane seems a bit excessive to me, but if nothing else has worked.. Have you tried any antibiotics?

You've had acne for ~5 years, now you're 18, and you're going on Accutane? Hmm.. Ive had worse acne for 2 years, then 4 years of hardcore severe cystic acne, and then 2 years of severe acne. I'm 21 now, going on Accutane too.. Good luck though.

DAY 9, skin is in very good condition, no active pimple now, i really hope to avoid ib.

side effects are annoying!! dry lips are ok to me, but dry/itchy skin is a bit of hell :/

How's your skin doing today?

DAY 21

well, i see that every time i wake up skin is in best condition. its strange.

my skin is very dry and flaky, not red. i have two dry patches, not itch so i think its just dry patch not eczema :)

i have 2 small scabs from popping :/ and two actives papules on left side. pimples are breaking out just a little bit more. yes i have dry lips but lipstick applyimg through day and no problem. so i can say that i have only two side effect now - harsh dry skin, eczema on hands.

soon going to take 40mg ;)

U don't even have acne maybe some pustules. A good diet and a moisturizer would have cleared it.

I honestly feel like your acne isn't that bad, but I also know how annoying it is to keep hearing that. Good luck, and I hope things work out well for you!
