  1. For lips, the best thing to do in my opinion is have something to put on them right before bed and something for daytime use. For nighttime, you can apply generous amounts to your lips so they stay somewhat moisturized during the next day. I use Cortizone 10 ointment at night, which keeps my lips from feeling dry for the most part, though some people will also recommend Aquaphor for this. As far as what to use during the day, I find Blistex to work best, though I have also used Carmex and someti

  3. I doubt 2 months is enough. It might keep you clear for a little while, but the higher the cumulative dose the better your chances are of remission. Being on it for 2 months won't give you nearly the recommended cumulative dose. You'll probably have to end up going back on it but good luck
  4. I would try to get to 10,000 mg total and I would call your doctor about increasing the dose. As long as your side effects aren't too bad, he shouldn't have a problem with it. 80 or 100 mg shoudn't be a problem given your weight.
  5. I think the easiest and best solution is to just take one of your pills every other day until you see your derm, cutting your current dose in half.
  6. Yeah mine came back within a year but I am pretty sure I stopped taking it last time before I reached 120mg/kg so I'm hoping a full treatment at 130mg/kg this time might put it away for good
  7. I have three questions that I would love some help answering. I am currently on my second course of Accutane and am wondering: 1. Are success rates higher on second or third courses than on first courses? 2. Is long-term remission more likely for patients with milder acne? (assuming the same cumulative dose is taken) 3. How much of a difference is there in remission rates between 120mg/kg cumulatively and 150mg/kg? I am currently trying to evaluate how successful my second course wil
  8. Aquafor is best for the lips, but I found that the Aquafor didn't do much good on the sides of the lip (where the top and bottom join), but maybe that's just me. I found the Aquafor good on the lips in general and the Palmer's swivel stick that I mentioned before best for the sides.
  9. I had this exact problem when I was on accutane. I used Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick and the problem was gone within 24 hours.
  10. Does anyone know how long it takes for the dry skin side effects to go away after stopping Accutane? I have been on accutane for around 5 months and will be stopping in about a week or so and am wondering how long it will take for the dry skin to go away (I am on 60 mg/day). Thanks!
