    For Narnia! 17/male

    Week 6 and a 1/2 (late by 2 days) Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Mild - That nodule has disappeared, a true testament to the power of accutane. Nothing noteworthy, my skin is oh so smooth and now I can class my acne as mild. I still have a few teeny tiny bumps but yeah, good enough! Side effects: - Still the same old dry skin, lips, casual back pain in the morning - after sport. No new effects. Although I've noticed when I feel really hot/in a stuffy or warm area, my nose does bleed. It

    Week 5 Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Mildly Moderate - So a nodule came up where your jaw meats your ear. -_-" Just as I was free! It isn't noticeable anyway, haha. A few smaller breakouts on my upper cheeks, which isn't a problemo. Side effects: - Still the same old dry skin, lips, casual back pain in the morning - after sport. No new effects. Experience Rating: Still amazed! A+ Should be seeing my derm in a few weeks to see how it's going for him.

    I haven't used BP! But for me, atleast, it isn't so dry that peeling occurs. Only to the point of being dry to the touch and some whiteness, which are more prevalent in other areas like my chin or upper lip.

    I'd say it would be a mix of both. I had minor scarring before, but now there's more, so I'd say it happened after starting. How are your ventures, Miss Oceanic? Ah, I am a little worried about the potentiality of scarring. Maybe the scars are from all the dryness caused by accutane? I still have to wait one more week and then I can finally start accutane! My appointment is set for the 21st. But, I've been gradually getting ready for accutane, buying some aquaphor, cerave and soon some stron

    Week 4 Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Mildly Moderate - ZERO nodules! 2-3 cysts under the skin. And a few scattered, mostly unnoticeable, pustular breakouts. Left with mild pitted scarring and moderate hyperpigmentation. Side effects: - Still the same old dry skin, lips, casual back pain in the morning - after sport. No new effects. Experience Rating: Very happy! How is this even possible? One month and all nasty acne is gone! I will post pics when I get the chance. AMAZED.

    Week 3 Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Moderate - I honestly don't think my 'active' acne can be classed as moderately-severe any more. I'M STOKED! I have one nodule which is pretty much flat, and only 10-12 active acne (most of which are under the skin still) which ranges from small pustules to a couple bigger cysts. My face is so much smoother than what it was a month ago. Although this has all left me with severe scarring . Hyperpigmentation and stuff. Side effects: - Dry lips and f

    Week 2 Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Moderately severe - The long nodule that I've had on my right cheek for a few months has flattened and is pretty much gone! And that newer nodule on my cheekbone went down, although still active. Breakouts under my mouth, 4-5 pimples under there since Week 1, initial breakout? And I still have a couple cysts on my left cheekbone. Face is generally smoother, disregarding my mouth area. Side effects: - Dry lips and facial skin definitely kicking in - l

    Accutane Question

    Hyper-pigmentation and scarring buddy, it will go with time.

    For Narnia! 17/male

    Week 1 Dosage: 20mg - daily Acne: Moderately severe - 2 new cysts since I started, one MASSIVE bulge on my right cheekbone Side effects: - Slightly dry lips and skin - no cracking! Back aches? I don't even know if it's even correlated, but after basketball yesterday my back ached for a bit. Nothing I can't handle though! Experience Rating: Smooth sailing. Nothing serious happening, not a lot of change. (How do you guys like this format?) Throw me questions if you have

    To 'tane Or Not To 'tane

    I agree, it's definitely worth a try for you and I'm glad you got over the initial anxiety phase. For me, I've never seen anybody with acne of my severity get clear without Accutane. So I'm not going to waste years of my life trying to find some clean and natural way to do it. And as AuguriesofInnocence pointed out, males don't have the options that women have. And likewise, I wish you well!

    To 'tane Or Not To 'tane

    I feel you bro/sis. It could also be the best decision you've ever had to make. Just weigh it up.

    Woo! Thanks for the luck, but I'm afraid I won't need it I'm planning to only use a Cetaphil facial cleanser and just a moisturizer which I haven't chosen yet, probably Cetaphil too. As for certain times, I'm not sure but I don't think there is a "best time" so to speak. Just make sure to take it around the same time every day/night. I take it at night just so that it can take effect overnight and not into the day. Thank you for the insight! Good luck to you, you seem to be near the end.
