  1. I had these blood pockets before...they leave the darkest red marks. I notice that if I just leave the pockets alone, the mark left over would be darker then if I had drained them. Just a FYI.
  2. So how long did it take before your skin went back to it's normal state so that you didn't have to moisturize anymore? I have been a month and a half off tane and I can feel my skin producing it's own natural oils back so that I can moisturize less! It's a great feeling! I still use a sunblock when I go out though because I burn pretty easily. How about you guys? It's definately one less thing for me to do throughout my daily routine which is great! Also did you guys get some whiteheads after yo
  3. I'm 5'7" and 135lbs. I was on 60, 60, 60, 80, 60. Worked pretty good!
  4. I'm pretty sure at the end of the first month, everything stopped. It gradually gotten better then on.
  5. That is why I won't take accutane. That is why you'll anyways have acne for the rest of your life. Enjoy!
  6. That study is crap. I'm 50X happier after tane then I was pre-tane. Actually I have happen throughout my whole course pretty much. I'm still here typing this...
  7. I did feel a bit more tired my first month...but the following month I was feeling normal. Accutane was one of the most pleasant treatments I have ever been through. Just pop 2 pills and moisturize...not that hard lol.
  8. Yup, Retina micro worked great for my bother. He had moderate acne and it pretty much cleared him up after half a year. Then he got cocky and went off retina...his acne came back a few months later. Now he is on tane per my advice.
  9. I don't feel that accutane will help your scars. Are you talking about scars or red marks? Scars are more on the deformation of the skin where you have dips and whatnot. But red marks are those brown/red spots that are left when a pimple goes away. I has a small scar on my cheek that was very shallow. Before I went on tane, I used retina 0.1% and it helps raise it back to the surface. Now it's smooth and blends in with the surrounding skin. it didn't help much with the red marks though. I found
  10. I've been off tane now for about a mouth and I noticed that I don't have to use my moisturizers that often anymore. Actually, I feel my own oils coming back as opposed to while I was on tane which I had no oils at all. I could tell because when I wash my face now, you feel a huge difference. Also I had a few breakouts which never happened while on tane. A bit scary since I have only been off it for 1 month. So the question is...how long did it take till you stop using moisturizer after your cour
  11. I was on 60mg of sotret then got switched to 80mg of claravis. My skin was actually less dry on 80mg of clarvis for some reason and I had a few whiteheads...but that wasn't much of a problem. I'm not sure if there is a difference between the generics or maybe my body reacts to a sotret better? Btw, the claravis packaging felt really cheap for some reason lol. The Sotret ones were like the Roche Accutane type.
  12. Wow, that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. And I did get nosebleeds a few times while I slept. The only thing that felt uncomfortable was my dry throat when I wake up. But after a glass of water, it's back to normal. You're not going to die from blood loss. Wtf did you get that idea? Do you know how much blood is in your body?
  13. I actually just finished my 5 month plan a few weeks ago. My dosage was 60/60/60/80/60. After my 3rd month, my derm said that I was doing really well so he wanted to cut it short and give me one more month only making my course a 4 month plan. I told him that I really wanted to go on a 5 month plan because it will help me sleep better at night. My skin is clear...not one bump AT ALL. Nothing, no zits, whiteheads, blackheads, NOTHING. He hesitated a bit but gave me 5 months. But I noticed that I'
