  1. hello all,

    my name is leah and i am 22 suffering with acne since i was 18. i finally went to see a derm. after all these years of trying everything from antibiotics, gels, you name it. finally, my dern decided to give me a dose of 30 mg of accutant.my skin is very dry after i wash my face in the morning. especially in the mouth area including my lips . i am excited but at the same time sad b/c i am still breaking out on my chin and neck area? is that normal? any recommendation on what products to use? my derm told me to stay away from bp b/c it might be to harsh for my skin? ive just started using acnefree sensitive skin system b/c my skin is very sensitive and at the same time i want something with active fight ingredients. please let me know if you have any helpful info as to dosage, cleanser, regimen, ect. thanks for sharing this journey to clear skin hopefully w/ me!

    xoxo leah

    my regimen for now:

    day & night

    -acnefree sensitive corrective cleanser

    - acnefree sensitive ph balancing moisturizer


  2. hi lindsey,

    at first my insurance didnt want to cover for my Claravis pills and it was going to run me around $130 for a 30 day supplies for 40 mg. one of the nurse at my derm office told me to call her back if the insurance company didnt want to cover it and i did. lucky, the nurse at my derm office convinced my insurance and had them cover my whole 6 months treatment. so, now i pay only $10 out of pocket when i pick up my pills at the pharmacy. you should ask your derm office how much its going to cost and if they could get your insurance to approve for accutane.
