  1. Quick Question - Does anyone notice that there nails are brittle?

The one I had on my lip is all gone....I also have little tiny white heads by my jaw line that I wake up with, but once I shower they disapear...so I haven't count them as active....I'm still pretty happy with my

    7 Months Post Accutane!

    I was on accutane for 7 months at 80mg a day. Very strong dossage and it was very hard with the side effects, but my derm keep me there to make sure my acne would not come back...It was well worth it! )

    7 Months Post Accutane!

    I felt fatigue about a month after my last dose....The red marks took a lot longer....I think I started to see a big difference after month 3...It does take a while but you will see beutiful healthy skin about 6 months after your last dose... Hope this helps!

    5 Months Post Accutane

    I'm using MAC blotting powder and it works great....I think this is the first month that I really feel the oil coming back especially on my forhead. And yes I use it over my make up - which is also MAC I'm not sure what laser treatment I'm going with but it might have to wait....I'm sooo happy with my skin right now that I don't know if I want to go through the procedure.... Good Luck!

    Day 58 - Post accutane

    I finally went to my last Derm appoitment and she was very happy to see how clear my skin is at this time. It has been almost 2 months since my last pill and everything still looks good. I also had the doctor that will be doing my laser treatments look at my face to see if it will be feasable. He said he will need to do some test spots due to my darker skin he thinks I will get really bad pigmignation issues (he thinks my skin will turn dark). I have to really think about it since I don'

    Day 51 - Post acutane

    STILL CLEAR! Almost two months post accutane and I am still 100 PERCENT clear!!! Is almost hard to believe that so far the meds are working and I have no breakouts.

    Day 40 Post Accutane

    I have my first pimple since I stoped my accutane treatment It's not big at all and it's by my ear so it's not noticable but it hurt like hell and I knew it was there. It's been such a LONG time since I had any king of blemish that it took me by total surprise. I know it problably has to do with my period being on, but it still made me feel really anxious. Last night I actually dreamed that my face was FULL of pimples and cystic acne. It made me feel completly sick. I'm glad it was o

    Day 28- Post Accutane

    It looks like January 2012 is going to be the laser treatment month. I know my derm can't start my facial laser treatment till then and now I can't start my laser hair removal till then either. Everything that has to do with my skin I have to wait the 6 months.... I guess I have to be safe about it..... Accutane Update: My face continues to be 100 percent clear....I do have a blackhead that I am trying not to squeeze but I think I might have too....My skin is still very sensitive an

    Day 22 - Post Accutane

    I'm almost at 30 days Post Accutane - and I'm still CLEAR Thank goodness!! Yesterday I did have a little scare....thought I was getting a pimple but it ended up being some weird scratch thingy... I'm just glad it's not a pimple! My face continues to get a little more oily - I can tell by the way my makeup looks at the end of the day....Before it looked flawless now it looks worn and shinny....But I'm really not complaining..I knew that it has to go back to producing some kind of oil..

But now I'm starting to get nervous since the oil has come back....

    Day 19 - Post Accutane

    FACE IS STILL CLEAR!!! Things are getting back to normal...My hair has finally stoped falling out in large amounts...I don't think the oil in my face has come back at all. But I really never got truly dry while on accutane.... I just think is normal....In the morning I can see shine but nothing that's out of control.... That's about it for now...

    not happy with accutane right now

    Stick with it!!! My hair fell out the entire 6 months I was on treatment, but it does go back to normal. The reason why your hair is falling out is because is dry....Give yourself some moisterizing treatments....best use avacado and egg yokes in your hair. It will help...I know right now it's tuff but it took me till month 4 to see my skin clear and even then I broke out....But now is Completly CLEAR and my skin looks amazing...If you can hang in there!!! Good Luck!

    2 weeks of accutane and I'm feeling awesome! My LIPS ARE BACK TO NORMAL!!!! I'm extatic about that! Evrything else is slowly getting back to normal as well... My hair is the second thing that I'm hoping gets back to normal... It's so dry and damaged from being on accutane...I don't want it to be as oily as before but at least have it retain some moister...
