Starting Accutane Second Time After 6 Years

Recommended Posts

After 6 years starting accutane again due to return of oil and acne, of course. I was clear for a year after my first trial but then i started getting little white heads here and there and after 3-4 years i started getting blackheads, cysts and the whole enchilada. Recently i always appear to have something on my skin so i went to my doctor and asked to take acctuane.

Last time i was supposed to do 6 months but i only did 5 months cause my lips got absolutely bad like its entire skin peeled off or something. Other than that i didn't have any major complications with the side effects, aside from the dryness. This time i am more prepared.

Also i'm going on Absorbica, i got the prescription for 40mg two pills a day, so thats 80mg, and the pharmacist called and said that those 60 pills a month would cost about $2,000!!! WHOA! hopefully my insurance covers a good portion of it. Right now the pharmacist is waiting for approval from my health insurance and my doctor, which won't be until Tuesday 'cause of the Memorial Holiday.

Anyway, gonna start a blog here, i had a blog for the first time i took accutane but it's gone or something can't find it. Any questions, do comment. Oh how do i start a freaking blog here? looking for the button but cant find it.

Check the reply I left on another post you made about how to make blog - Let me know if you'd like this moved to the personal / accutane logs forum where you could use this like a blog.

Good luck with the accutane this time around :)
