  1. First of all, good luck with your treatment! And I think that you should stick with what you are being prescribed as the dermatologist knows a lot more than we do. For me I only really saw a big improvement on the last month, on the last week actually... But with Roaccutane you just have to play the waiting game, keep taking your pills and get ready for sexy, smooth and acne free skin Good luck!
  2. RECAP! I HAVE FINISHED AND I'M CLEAR. I know I haven't posted on here in a while but it's because I've been extremely busy on my holidays. sorry! I came back on to just cap things off and tell you what's happening now after my Roaccutane treatment. Dosage throughout treatment: Month 1 - 30mg Month 2 - 30mg Month 3 - 30mg Month 4 - 30mg Month 5 - 30mg Month 6 - 40mg Originally, I was only supposed to be on treatment for 4 months, but Unfortunately I was not seeing any results and I wa
  3. Yeah, I have my next check-up in like... 14 days, so I'm going to explain everything, and I'll definitely ask about the cortisone shots. Cheek cysts are the worst! hate them! I went to my GP and she was saying that the 'tane was making me super anxious, whenever I get a tiny rash, I worry myself ill, literally. I couldn't give a shit about a tiny rash if I wasn't on 'tane. Basically, I was having slight pain and horrible cramping in my stomach, stools were a lot looser than normal an
  4. I definitely will keep in touch, keep reading my blog! , my course is due to end soon and when my derm hears about what's going on, I have no idea what's going to happen. I'll be alright doing another month on this poison, but that's it. Shit's toxic like fuck. I'd rather wash my face with bleach after this, fuck sake. lol.
  5. WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Haha, I really hope we do, Katrina. Good luck and Amen to that!
  7. I'm glad you did, haha, Many call me - Donnie Darko
  8. You sound a lot like me, hey, We would probably make great friends.. "your lucky to see me with my curtains open, i just sit in darkness. I hate the light because it shines on my face and reveals all of my pain." I do this and I also shower and bathe in darkness, I hate the lights in bathrooms. Makes my face look as though I've been attacked with a lawnmower. I like you bud, You sound like a cool guy, Don't let acne win, I'm definitely not. I just fucking rage all the time, I have my moments
  9. "Accutane likes to fuck with you sometimes" You've got that right, one day you have no pimples, and the next, you have 10 cysts. Haha, I like you, good luck with your course!
  10. Good luck with your course, Hope everything goes smoothly, and you will have perfect skin in no time. Take it just after food, it absorbs better.
  11. DON'T READ THIS IF YOU'RE A SENSITIVE HUMAN. SWEARING AND SHIT. Week 15 Sorry for not really being on here too much, I think you'll understand when I say that I've been feeling like fucking utter shit. Right... where do I start... First of all, let me tell you about the current acne presence on my body: BADBOY MOTHERFUCKING CYSTS OR BOILS EVERYWHERE (slight overexaggeration) !! You must be thinking, "Roaccutane has sent this guy crazy", in all trueness, it probably has. I'm SICK
  12. Week 13 So it's my 13th week and I think I might be rid of my dreadful acne, but what's left is far worse. I no longer get 10 pimples every morning which is heaven for me, I can now go to college without worrying about that massive cyst on my cheek... although I do have a few pimples here and there around my body, it is NOTHING like how it used to be, I can live like this but before, It was horrible and I honestly do feel sorry for everyone who has or been through severe acne like me, It'
  13. Week 9 It's late and I'm tired, This will not be long. A lot has happened since the last time I posted, I've been to my derm and he just told me that It's looking good and prescribed me with 10 weeks of Roaccutane at 30mg, I was pretty pissed off leaving the hospital because he didn't listen to me at all, I wanted to vent and talk to him about what was going on but I was literally in his room for about 5 minutes, then to top it all off, the nurse who took my blood was a f**king arse. So
  14. Creatine fucked up my skin, gave me like 20 cysts on my forehead. Clear on Roaccutane now.
  15. Yes, yes! a million times, yes! My experience only.
  16. 2 Months I can't even believe it's been a whole 8 weeks since I started this drug. I still have those cysts on the back of my neck, they are so persistent, it's unreal! They have gone up and down in swelling and soreness for about a week now and they're getting pretty boring, my neck is so sore that I've been finding it hard to sleep, although today it feels so much better, think I might actually get a good nights sleep. :/ Anyway my face is pretty much clear, full of all sorts of diffe
  17. Week 7 Ok so it's week 7 and things are just constantly improving, I want to post pictures up so I can show you just how much progress I have made but I really am afraid incase anybody I know sees, silly I know... But it's how I feel Breaking out Ok so I went swimming last week with my friends, and I know that chlorine can not be the best thing for your skin while on Roaccutane, infact it may be on of the worst. the pool I went to has a reputation of having a large amount of c
  18. Week 6 Ugh.... I hate skin. I'm back again for all who missed me.... Not many changes to post this week, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. My overall skin condition has improved but I do feel as though this is constant, My back feels really smooth though... so I hope this will happen to my face because it feels extremely soft and smooth. My face is getting better, at the minute I have no cysts which is really something for me, Going from a face full of them to literally zero. I con
  19. I'm glad it did! I'm on 30mg and the dose seems quite low, sometimes I even forget I'm on the drug. I only get muscle pain when i bend down, it's not even that bad but I did used to have a lot of muscle pain from working out; I don't really notice it. Thank you! and good luck to you also!
  20. Week 5 *Some kind of witty introduction here* Well it's week 5 and time is just flying by... I thought the time would've dragged being on Roaccutane but it really has went quite quick. My skin.... well... I think i must be undergoing the "purging" process because wow... my skin looks horrendous right now, although my larger acne has pretty much cleared away (as in cysts and other larger acne, yeah.), blackheads are coming out just about every pore in my body... seriously though; my skin l
  21. Hey, Thank you! Yeah I had that feeling too, but honestly the time flies by. It feels as though I was only prescribed Roaccutane yesterday... Yeah I think I did get an IB, it started at week 2-3 and I'm still clearing from it now, my face just looks like a dry red mess at the minute. It definitely gets worse before it gets better... Good luck with your course though!
