  1. My derm is rec that I use a retinoid after my accutane treatment. Has anyone else done this? I'm questioning this decision as my skin will be sensitive and a harsh retinoid will do harm? Or does my skin even need a retinoid after treatment?
  2. Hi stasa, I am almost near 2 months in now. I got bumped to 80mg a day starting the second month. I dont really see any drastic improvements. I am still breaking out, and I dont know if this is strange but, I think this medication is making me get hair growth in unwated areas. I started getting hair growth all over my forehead and the unibrow area. I guess the amazing thing abotu this stuff is how fast it heals your skin. If you get a breakout, and it pops or if you squeeze, it heals and goes
  3. Today was my day 7. I see minor improvements, but my face is still kind of oily and my lips are still normal. I got a breakout along my jaw, but a few large cysts I had before I started the accutane, got smaller and hardened into little blackheads and fell out. My eyes have been feeling funny. My vision has not gotten bad, but theres something about them I can't really explain. It kind of feels like they're seeing with a lower frequency if that makes sense. Also 2 days this week, I woke up af
  4. Adrienne, so are you satisfied with the progress you are making with claravis? Maybe month 2 I may shell out my own cash and try the brand name. who knows
  5. brand name just costs too much. i think brand name at walgreens is like 770 dollars for 30 40mg pills. my insurance is only covering 100 dollars for the brand name. its pretty ridiculous.
  6. Started Claravis, and took my first dose at 7pm on Monday. I went to bed around 10pm, but woke up around 12am with a headache. I took 3 excedrin, and I still feel a bit nautious. So here I am at 3am starting this post because the headache will not go away and I cannot sleep because of it. The plan was to take 40mg pills for 5 months, we'll see how this goes.

By the way, is there any significant difference between a brand name and a generic? I do not know if it is a mental thing but, I noticed
  8. Does anyone know how much accutane costs for 30 40mg pills at walgreens? brand and generic. Thanks
  9. I agree with you there, I never feel quite clean after my morning shower, can't really explain
  10. I am about to start taking accutane pretty soon. Question is what cleansers and moisturizers can be used with this drug? Derm said I should use cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer, but do I have to? Can I continue to use the product line(bionova) I am currently using? Was also thinking of trying the Dr. Hauschka line for acne/oily skin or the Dior Homme Dermo line, please let me know.
