  1. -End of month 1- Hello again! My skin is alot better. I've noticed a change this week. I've been watching the activity of my black heads, which was the best predictor last time i was on 'tane. So far many of them have been disappearing, which is amazing news. I still have blackheads but not as many and not as relentless. The ones that are there are smaller, it seems. Dryness is noticable. Every time I use an astringent for my nose things become rather dry almost immediately. I just pile on the

    Hi Cheeky boy, Red marks probably take less tim because with clear skin i'm not using as manydrying products to inhibit healing. i've been on spiro for too long and have decided to do a course of accutane again. im on low dose 10mg for a year and am nearing the end of my first month of treatment. i'll be phasing out spiro in three months. on spiro there is alot less oil! on the right dosage (which, for me, was 200 mg) there is no oil. but my dr is concerned about the danger of spiro (that being,
  3. day 21 Sick with laryngitis no news, really... blackheads.. and still at 150 mg of spiro. still on yasmin. still @ 10 mg of accutane a day. i'll stop posting until i notice a change or go off spiro altogether.... only then will i truely be able to recognize the effects of accutane on its own. i hope 'tane will kick in in 3 mos.!
  4. Day 14 Skin: Perfectly Clear Side Effects- ? Have reduced my dosage to 125mg of spiro and am using garnier purifying pads at night. I think Garnier is the main reason for my being completely clear (usually little white heads pop up) in any event: my skin looks great... i just hope that when my derm pulls me off spiro in two.5 months that accutane month three will be just as clear!
  5. day 6 super dry skin on my chin today. perhaps it because i tried the new moisturizer from neostrata level two... it exfoliates.... glycolic acid never does well with my skin for some reason. great product though! perhaps tane is beginning to work?!?! i hope!
  6. Day 4 TIP For anyone out there who has had trouble swallowing accutane pills... I just have to share that putting the pill in water softens it so much and makes it easy to swallow! give it a try
  7. Hello! I had an Accutane log on here 7 years ago... you can see the link to it in my signature. It has photos of how terrible it was on the 3rd page of the log. My acne came back in 2008 almost overnight. It was really bad again, so I went on Spiro. I'm currently on 150 mg of spiro + yasmin. Spiro is wonderful, it clears my skin completely. However, I'm sick of being on drugs all the time. I hope this term of accutane will leave me free at last. Any time I miss a dose of spiro my skin flares ag

  13. so the other morning i woke up with glowing flawless skin and i was shocked because only two weeks ago i was getting really bad break outs. i am on month 5 or spiro and have been on yasmin for three months prior to this- i was wonderin if anyone can tell me whether the fact that i was on my last, inactive pills in the bcp package may have something to do with my being clear? isit perhaps the yasmin that was causing my body to breakout or is this just a fluke.... i really want to know about what
