  6. Hey everyone happy new yrs Well l ever since I up my dose to 200 mg alot of the bumps from the epiduo break out have died down big time like my face look so clear with makeup on. I notice when I don't apply epiduo I dont get new pimples the acanya and bp with the pills keep me clear but I still want to use a retinod for the add benefit of not having clogged pores so I am using 1 day yes and one day no. I also notice that with epiduo I am not a oil pit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah.... that's all for

Sex is amazing a stress relief for me I never really paid attention to that but with masturbation when I was clear from acne I did notice i broke out a lil when I did the deed on my own hmm never really put 2 and 2 together. Sex sweat. Mmmmmm.
  8. Hey they prescribed me trinessa which is the generic brand of ortho lo which I am might change to ortho bc my insurance covers it. my cyst seem to come around the week of my period and after. beside that i don't have any cystic acne so that why my gyn put me on BC. I also called in the derm and she said to take 200 mg of my antibiotics for 1 week dn go back to 100 mg once a day bc I am getting pustules all over again with epiduo I am seriously reconsidering going back on retin a micro :/. my s
  9. first 1 week than it was pimples heaven lol white head all over my chin upper lip and jaw line with cyst it was a nightmare but epiduo is doing an okay job kinda of purging my skin a little not as bad as retin a but im not liking it.

Did u have to be on a birth control for 2 months before getting the accutane? me and
  10. I try the no antibiotic route with a retiniod in the beginning oh how I regret I broke out very bad with inflamed pimples that hurt like hell! I end up going to my derm begging to put me on an antibiotic I am now left with marks on my face from the IB I also switched retiniods. I think it will help out big time I also used topical before oral antibiotic but the topical didn't help much.
  11. congrats on the no smoking... I hope u feel better
  12. I went to my derm and they switched me to epiduo I couldn't handle how shiny and oily my face was its a bit better now with the oil but still oily. Retin a did wonders for my skin as a teen but not so much now. My other derm said she never seen anyone have an IB as bad as I did so I don't know if I should of gave it more time or what. Epiduo is breaking me out but no as bad bc I have been on antibiotics for almost 2 months and acanya helps out. it has dried out most of the pimples I had from re
