To have people to share my experience with, who are going through the same thing, at the same time is quite special. Considering I am the only 31 year old women with cystic acne that I know (LOL)!!! Had my first labs done tuesday have not heard anything yet and at this point my biggest fear is that Doc is going to call me and say "
  8. Hello all I got the go ahead this morning from my derm to start accutane in Sept. Recieved my !pledge booklet got my # and had my first lab (including pregnancy test) today. I guess my question is what do I need as far as products in my accutane survival kit of sorts. Cetaphil cleanser and moistuizer seem to be popular?? Lip balm?? Shampoo & Conditioner?? Vitamins?? What can I expect?? Don't know the dosage yet. Details- Name: Kristen Age-31 Have had acne since I was about 22 yrs
