  1. Accutane Journey Updated

    ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!! I have mild to sometimes moderate acne.. I've never had severe acne but it has been persistent. I've struggled with it for about 8-9 years on my chest, back, neck, and face. I'm a senior in college studying engineering and just turned 21 a couple months ago. I had moderate to severe acne on my back and shoulders until I cut dairy out of my diet a couple years ago, but the acne on my face and neck just will not go away. I've tried clindamycin phosphate topical with salicylic acid wash when I was in HS, to doxycycline a few years ago (5 month treatment), to benzoyl peroxide wash last year, to minocycline with a tretinoin retinoid this year (2 months). Antibiotics would clear me up for the most part, but the effects they would have on my stomach always made me want to get off of them. I also have no faith that if I stayed off of antibiotics, that my acne would stay away and I would stay clear. I finally made the decision to go on accutane after I seeing two of my friends just complete their trials with absolutely amazing results. I started my journey on November 17th, 2018 and I am currently on 60mg/day. I am 6'0" and about 180 lbs. I do a decent amount of lifting and working out and eat quite healthy compared to most college students. Again, my acne on my face and neck has never been severe, just persistent and some days, not pleasant. I've been fed up with dealing with it for a long time. So here we go. My journey through Accutane. FINGERS CROSSED!

  4. Accutane Before and After Updated

    I started accutane in September 2017, and I was nervous to take it because of all of its negative connotations. Now my skin doesn’t have even 1 blemish on it and I have gained so much confidence through my experience with the drug. Despite the annoying little things while taking it was so worth it!!

  9. 1 year post tane! Updated

    I haven't posted in years and a lot happend. A year ago I made one of the best decisions of my life when I finally after 17 years of trying everything with no lasting results I went back to a derm and was immediately started on my Zenatane Journey. I cleared up almost completely in 2 months and only did a 5 months cycle...I did have side effects my body constantly hurting all over to the bone was the worst for me, nosebleeds,  being in a permanent state of full rage bitch mode most of the time and my lips looking like a crusty scab. 
    I was pretty miserable the entire 5 months but will do it again in a heartbeat if the need shall ever arise again. 

    having moderate to cystic acne for so long really took it's toll on my self esteem,  everytime I looked in the mirror it was all I could focus on. I would look around my bathroom at the literal thousands of dollars of half empty  bottles and tubes I once opend hopefully wishing that this would be the one.

    Going to school, work or family gatherings and people asking me if I wash my face or catching them looking at my face. If they only knew the extent to which I dedicated my life trying to fix my skin.

    Once I was almost lost to depression and considered taking my own life. While my skin wasn't the only cause it was a major factor. My head would tell me that no one would ever want to be with someone who looked the way I did. At my worst I barely left my mother's house for two years and lived my life purely online. I remember when I first found ance.org and it gave me hope seeing so many people just like myself..finally people who understood. 
    I am forever grateful for Dan and this site for helping me though one of the darkest times of my life.

  10. How I Cured My Acne Updated

    I used to have an acne issue for several years, especially in my teens. It progressively got worse until to the point when i wanted to take measures really badly. Then i was described with Isotretinoin Actavis and... it really helped, but those side effects tho...

  11. Should I go back on accutane? Updated

    I was on 30mg accutane for 5 months before I stopped because I taught I was done but somehow the acne is returning only on my left cheek area. Should I go back on accutane for a couple more months or use something else?

  20. Acnetane 50mg Progress Album Updated

    Hi there! My name is Al. Decided to go on Accutane because usually the pictures that I post everywhere are full of blemish fixes and filters, and I don't want that anymore. I want to post pictures where I am NOT full of make-up, or full of scars or even full of photoshop. I am 28 years old, I stay in sunny South-Africa, and this will be my foto logbook of my treatment, up until the very last scar and pimple has been removed. I am on the generic version of Ruacutane, called Acnetane, and my Derm started me on 50mg a day, for the next 2 months. I have stocked up on a lather lotion, on a body cleanse gentle enough for my skin, and Vaseline. A lot of Vaseline.  I am super excited to see the end  result, and can't wait for my new face! Let the journey begin!

    side effects (10 mg a day):
    -slightly dry, itchy skin
