  1. Your after tane skin looks great and smooth, bro! This is an old thread, are you still clear today? Although I'm happy for you, did you really take 100 mg your 5th month?! I'd be scared shitless to go over 60! Hey thanks! I'm still about 80-90% clear today. I get the occasional pimple here and there. I still maintain with a SA wash. Ya 100mg was pretty scary. It actually made everything way worse, then my course ended and the month after everything cleared up! I know most courses r 6 month

    IT'S 'TANE TIME

    Crystal, I know you don't come to these parts anymore! and neither do I, but i did do a 6months post update and I figured I'd leave you something. I hope all is well with your skin, your life and the little girl! You were truly the reason I got through my course and I am very thankful for meeting you on the .org! You are a very inspirational person and very kind-hearted. Keep being that way and you will go even farther than you already have! I will never forget you and our crazy talks, you SE
  3. ~6 Months Post Accutane I know I haven't updated in quite some time, but that is due to my skin doing quite well. I get the occasional pimple, but it heals quickly with the application of SA. I figured out my back acne by using a body wash with 2% SA in it..... Besides that, my regimen consists of.... Biore- SA scrub, Purpose gentle cleanser, Neutrogena SA toner and Neutrogena SA lotion.... as you can see I use a lot of SA and that seems to be working best for me. It keeps me clear and t
  4. Hey man, I am about 3 months past my course and I compete in powerlifting. I did not compete during my course, because I could definitely feel a lot more body aches/ pain then before my course, but I discovered fish oil did help that. As for supplements, I take the same supplements now as i did before my course and I am still clear. I take tribulus/ZMA stack, jack3d, Protein (whey & casein) and creatine EE. My face is still clear, but I will still get some bacne from time to time which I
  5. Staying pretty much clear... had a few on my back and one on my forehead. red marks still fading using my toner.
  6. I felt some pretty bad body aches after a month or so (especially after a workout), but i combatted that with fish oil, which seemed to help. Strength or body weight weren't affected at all. Aquaphor for dry lips at night and Cortibalm during the day kept my lips in check.
  7. ~2 Months Post 'Tane Here are some pics about 2 months post accutane......The toner i stared using seems to be fading my red marks. Pretty happy!
  8. I had moderate Bacne which I relate to lifting weights (especially seemed worse after I would squat, Irritation from the bar seemed to flare it up). I still get some because I still lift, but nowhere near to what it was. I took Bactrim for 2 months up until my first dose of accutane. moderate bacne? kind of like this? http://www.google.co...1t:429,r:29,s:0 Yea i have heard how exercising causes acne on the back (lifting mostly). Any way around it? My back was mostly painful cysts, the type w
  9. I had moderate Bacne which I relate to lifting weights (especially seemed worse after I would squat, Irritation from the bar seemed to flare it up). I still get some because I still lift, but nowhere near to what it was. I took Bactrim for 2 months up until my first dose of accutane.
  10. NICE! I agree that the skin gets better/stronger day by day.....We just gotta hope it doesn't come back after the accutane is totally out of our systems around 2 months after....nonetheless, good results! for the both of us!

    Shannon's Amne Log! *pics!

    Hey there, I read thru your log and I can relate to a lot of it (except the birth control and all the extra ipledge crap for females lol). I don't know if you read my log which is in my signature, but i completed a 5 month course around 1 1/2 months ago. It was nothing less than a freakin' roller coaster. Had clearER skin after the first month, but every time my derm increased my dose i broke out pretty bad. ESPECIALLY BAD after being upped to 100mg my final month. I broke out with cysts an
