  2. I've been off accutane about a month now. I havent really broke out but my face is still a mess. I have tons of marks and some pimples here and there. My doctor says I could get chemical peels after being off accutane 3 months. what exactly does it do and will it hurt?
  3. I just ended accutane yesterday. kinda sad. idk where these 5 months went. my face got a lot better. still not great and with a lot of red marks. will the medicine really start kicking in now? and how long til i can take vitamins? any advice would help! xO <33
  4. awww thanks for the advice ive been on accutane almost 5 months and im still not clear yet, what month did it start kicking in for you? or did it clear up a lot after u stopped the pill?
  5. gosh, i feel your pain. I'm on my very past month. still not clear and feeling like i never will be it kills me, it really does but many ppl say theres still hope. we'll see. ::sigh::
  6. I'm on my last month of accutane. It hasn't really done much. When I first started accutane it made my face extremely worse. It's gotten a lil better. My pimples aren't huge like they use to be but I still have so much left of my face. And on top of that, its so red. : ( I have like 2 weeks left. Is there any hope after I'm off it? My derm. said that a lot of times it clears up after you're off accutane. somebody please help :*(*
  7. I feel your pain..accutane does suck as of right now. im in my 3rd month n no improvements =(
  8. Today is week 13 that I've been on accutane. I havent seen any improvements, just more breaking out. My dermatologist is surprised by this. I end accutane in March. If this medicine is only a 20 week period than how are people on it for 6 months? I dont understand. My derm said that a lot of cases the acne doesnt clear until after I stop takin the pills. Do u think he'll put me on creams or sumthin? My face is just so bad still. =( or maybe ill just get another course. idk, im confused and sadde

  11. aww its ok..u should be fine. i went a few days without it b/c sumthin happened with my plan but u should be good. accutane stays in your body a good week. well. good luck! =)

  18. Ive been suffering with acne for 8 years. 8 years of hell. I've been on everything under the sun..Ive seen 4 dermologists. My current one decided to put me on accutane. Today is 6 weeks that I've been on it. My face seems to be gettin worse and worse. Its all red and I keep breaking out really bad.

I just dont want
  19. it all depends on ur insurance company. accutane for me without insurance would cost 1200$ and the genetric would be 997$. its nuts.
  20. I feel the same thing is gunna happen to me. =( I'm on my 6th week and Ive seen no improvement whatever so ever. Its just been getting worse and worse. I feel like its gunna be like this forever and its not gunna ever clear. I have a fear accutane(my only hope) wont work. ugh..i hate this. The only difference is I dont have oily skin anymore. =/ ::sigh::
  21. Don't eat any fast food!!! thats def a no-no. Not only is it bad for ur face but it will screw around with ur chorestal. no fried food either! good luck!
  22. Okay..I'm FREAKING OUT. My friggen pharmacy plan got messed up & I cant get my accutane for 2 weeks. My last pill will finish 2morrow. I called my derm and they said theres nothing they can do..they said I'd have to start over. Is 2 weeks gunna make much a difference?? I've been on accutane exactly a month 2day. Idk but im going crazy. Without my plan accutane is 900$..yea 4get that, i dont got that kind of money. My face was/is soo bad this 1st month..I dont wanna have to go thru that agai
  23. I'm on estrostep FE...ive been on it about 2 years next years and now i'm on my first month of accutane. it def cleared my face up a lot be4 i was on the accutane! i was on it for my acne be4 accutane..& the box says "an indication for acne" or something. i guess its made to help acne more? who knows!
