  1. Hey sofie, How are you doing? Sorry I couldnt manage to see your message. How is your acne? I am all clear since I left the accutane. Accutane has actually saved me and it did wonders for me, it changed my life and has given me hope. This is how I look now after 6 years of accutane.
  2. Hey Taners! My friend who referred me to this site rightly said, "you will never get back to the site once you finish off your course" and he was spot on. Just to let some of you know who are currently on accutane or planning to get on that I'm all cleared now, its almost 1 and a half year of post accutane and I never ever had any tiny little breakout since then. The spots are gone so are the after effects. If anyone of you wants any type of help regarding your course, I'm here to respond.
  3. 3 Months post accutane Alright, I just saw a post from Acne.org on facebook and thought that I should update my log coz only one thing will get you back to this forum that is acne on your face and thanks to accutane that I'm all cleared. It's great, nothing on my skin for 3 months of post accutane, every single sign of accutane has gone, no back pain. I'm living a happy life, partying, hanging out with full of confidence, taking photos (closeups) with my phone I wish all of you very be
  4. I didnt do anything with my red marks, they are gone now. Never used anything topical when i was on accutane. It is now ONE MONTH post accutane and I;m doing great, no breakouts, skin clearing up, complexion getting fairer, great stuff! Love you ACCUTANE!
  5. Hey, i just finished my 6 month course 2 days back and i lost hair during this treatment. Although no serious baldness on those specific areas you mentioned. But i did lost hair constantly during my 3rd-5th month but it slowed down from month 6, now I'm not losing hair that big and my derm says this will stop as soon as you stop taking accutane. Started accutane on october 3rd 2012. done with a 6 months course and I'm all cleared
  6. Ok here are the latest photographs of me dont i look happy and excited? yes i do, it was the toughest and the hardest treatment i went through, expecially first two months and then i started seeing improvements gradually and this is how it looks now.
  7. Hey people! I haven't posted for quite some time. Been busy with work n stuff and yeah didnt have anything special to share with you guys. But FINALLY!!!!! the journey has come to an end and I'm done with a 6 months course of isotretinoin yayyy!!! my skin looks amazing, haven't had any breakouts for past 3 months or may be more. The marks have also gone away, just very few of them remaining and will fade away. Accutane has literally cured my nodular and cystic acne. My lower back pain is also go
  8. I vaguely remember something from the Isotret pamphlet that said that in rare occurrences taking both can lead to increased cranial pressure. I'm pretty sure it only applies to taking long-term antibiotics and possibly only tetracyclines though. Nothing as such happened with me as I took azythrimycine for just 2 weeks and as soon as i got rid of my initial breakout I left that right away and continued the same amount of isotretinoin.
  9. I did get impatient in the very first month as I had a very bad initial breakout right in my first week. I kept on lurking myself on this forum to boost up my confidence. I kept on looking for success stories rather than side effects and horror stories of this medication which helped a lot to hang in there. I weigh 120lbs. One more thing i would like to suggest that STOP eating junk in your first month, eat healthy as much as you can. Though that cannot prevent you for the IB but once your body
  10. Patrick, I'm doing great with my skin. No new spots for ages now. Right now, the lower back pain is a worry for me. It is really bad and intense. Other than that, my skin is absolutely fine, no dryness, no new spots.
  11. True that, everytime i take my new photographs I feel much confident and satisfied. Though I'm still scared of going in front of mirror . Will do that when I'm all cleared and spotless. Yes, pretty much happy with the results so far. Although my lower back pain is still intense, no problems, nobody sees n feel my lower back pain All they see is improvements on my face day by day which really makes me happy and confident.
  12. Yes you can check out my log which has a complete progess photographs from day 1 to current. Here is the link. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/321237-27yo-male-started-accutane-today/
  13. Not much of scarring you have on your face. Your skin seems to be good if I compare to mine. I'm also into my 4th month and full of scarring and red marks. I'm also left with some deep pits. But the marks look to be improving gradually. They were dark purple 2 months back, then turned red and now dark pink. So what I see is the marks are changing colors and will fadeout by the end of my course.
  14. I was also told to eat fatty food while on accutane as it absorbs quickly with fats. But for the first month i ate healthy, fruits, vegs and some low carbs. I strongly agree to the comments which SanLosAng made. He is spot on. Just believe that this drug is the only cure for acne and this will definitly work for you. Forget about the scars and initial breakout, you already suffered this situation for quite sometime, so it is a matter of just 7-8 months and you will be all cleared. I'm into m
  15. How much do you weigh? I'm wondering that starting on a high dose will cause some serious initial breakouts and you also mentioned that your skin is already dry. So its gonna be super dry and flaky on this high dose for the first month. Well the initial breakout varies from person to person. It depends on how worse your acne was prior to accutane and what skin tone you already have (oily, dry or neutral). It also depends on what diet you are on while on accutane. I ate healthy when i started
