  1. I'm kinda super late in replying, lol. I apply moisturizer all over my face, I live in Virginia and we defintiely get winters here..lol. Summer time I still apply moisterizer all over my face as well but I don't have to apply as much as I do in the winter time. As for the benzoyl peroxide mine is a tube and it's creamy. Before I started accutane I was on a Bactrim (antibiotic) and DUAC (combination of benzoyl peroxide and Clindamycin). I had never used DUAC prior too or heard of it before bu
  2. I finished accutane on friday with roughly 3-4 pills left. I also asked my derm about a skin regime I should use post accutane she told me to stick with the routine I have been using. The routine I used throughout accutane was using cetaphil facial wash, witch hazel toner, and Ambi (moisterizer). She told me that I would probably have one-three pimples pop up ever full moon which she told me was normal. She told me to use benzoyl peroxide and retinoid cream for spot treatments and that it wou
  3. Hey amoxilworx! Yea I definitely wasnt going tell anything to my accutane nurse. I already knew exactly what she was going to do and I was like forget that lol. I was actually given muscle relaxers back in Jan 13 but to me they didnt really work. I never took them while I was on accutane b/c I wasnt sure if it would mix well with it or not. So I just popped advil and kept it moving. By next week that back pain should be gone, so I'm not too worried about it now..lol.
  4. Good luck on your accutane journey!! Stick with it and you will see the results you are looking for. Sometimes people can't get past the side effects of using accutane, but just know in the end those side effects are worth it (at least to me). It sucked having to get blood drawn every single month, lol...but hey I made it through. Again good good luck!!!
  5. I just had my last accutane appointment this past friday. I currently have about 3 to 4 pills left and I will be completely done. As long as you stick with it, you will definitely start seeing a difference in month 3. Make sure you get a good lip balm b/c day 10 you will be ready to rip your lips off (at least I was). Anyway GOOD LUCK!!!!
  6. I haven't been on here in months, I couldnt remember my password and completely just let time slip by. So this past Friday was my last accutane appointment, I have about 4 pills left but overall I AM DONE!!!!!! I'll start from the side effects I started to experience towards the end of November. Okay so again I start accutane the first week in Sept so definitely by November I had no acne. The old acne scars on my face where pretty much faded (I still see lite spots, but its definitely not
  7. Hey guys I am back with my update. I'll try not to make it long winded. So this saturday (5 Oct 13) I completed my first 30 days of Accutane at 40MG. The ONLY side affect I experienced on my first 30 days was the dry lips and a ezcema breakout on my neck (cetaphil cream and aquaphor took care of the dry patch). I also did not experience a IB only b/c I think me taking Bactrim prior to starting accutaned help. I think I had maybe a total of 4 pimples the whole first 30 days. My dosage was inc
  8. Hi Plswork. I will be completing my first month of accutane this Friday. I am currently on 40mg and Friday my dosage is supposed to increase to 80mg but we'll see. For the first month I guess I was one of the lucky ones who did not experience an initial breakout. I think I developed maybe 4 or 5 pimples overall in the first month. I think I didnt experience an initial breakout b/c I was put on Bactrim prior to starting accutane. The only major side effect I have experienced was the dry

    Day 1-4 Accutane

    I figured I would do a blog on my accutane journey. I started accutane this past friday 6 Sept 2013 on 40mg a day. I'm 28 yrs old/African American female. (I apologize in advance for the long blog) A little background on me is I have dealt with cystic ance, whiteheads,and blackheads for 8 years. I've used Retin-A, Benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, and other things. I decided that I was done with trying everything else and was ready to go on the accutane. In July I was given an antibiotic ca
