Products To Use While On Accutane Plus Question About Start Date

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

After finally jumping through all the blood test and iPledge hoops, I picked up my first script for Amnesteem today. Good times!

I thought I spotted somewhere on this site a few months back a pretty comprehensive list of good, non-comedogenic, non-irriting moisturizers, lip balms, and sunscreens that proved effective for many of you all who have taken Accutane. I did several searches, but couldn't find it. Anyone know where it might be?

Also, did anyone else put off taking their first dose by a couple days? I'm thinking of holding off until Monday, for several reasons. I'm traveling starting Friday through Sunday for a wedding, but I'm also nervous about the small window of time given for subsequent blood tests, appts, and script pick up. After counting off 30 days on the calendar through my six-month course, I realized that if I put off my start date by a few days, I would actually have some wiggle room in terms of booking subsequent appointments, and won't find myself in the position of having to skip a dose or two because blood tests don't arrive on time or my dermo spaces out (she forgot, for instance, to confirm me with iPledge, and I didn't know until I left the office and tried to log in to answer my questions.)

Admittedly, my math skills are often fuzzy, but I think postponing a few days is okay?

Thanks!

Some things you could try that worked for me...

FACE - cetaphil cleanser, cetaphil moisturiser, la roche posay cicaplast pro recovery skin care.

BODY - aveeno moisturiser.

LIPS - aquaphor! (Also used this on dry patches on my face which helped)

Hope this helps, good luck!
