  1. So i was on 80mg/day for 3 months, then 40mg/day for three months and I had excellent results from accutane... Fast forward ~6months and I just had a widespread breakout on my forehead.. But the thing is, every zit that comes up is small and really weak, usually surfacing and popping within a day. What I am wondering is, is this breakout due to the accutane wearing off or is it due to other factors like how I just started taking a different multivitamin?

    The reason i am perplexed is because the acne had been coming back for the past month or so, but it was always isolated zits, maybe 1 or 2 at a time.. then suddenly i had this breakout on my forehead of probably 10 really small zits, is this a sign of things to come or could it be triggered by other factors besides accutane wearing off?

    Any advice, input would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Finally done with 6months.. Very good results, I shall post pics tomorrow... I was on 80mg/day for about 3months then 40/day for the rest. My question is what are the odds my acne comes back and if it does what should I do? Get tane again? I dont enjoy topicals or antibiotics, and I know tane works.. Any advice appreciated.. thanks

  3. I dont understand these people... You can't sue a drug company for marketing a drug that has been FDA approved for over 20 years and has clear warning labels on the packaging. People should take drugs at their own risk, not only that theres no way for the father in Ireland to prove a direct connection to accutane..

    Not only that it's not Roche's fault that the kids derm prescribed accutane when he didnt even have severe acne, thats on the doctor.

  4. I know acne and being over weight are two different things, but what would you choose to have if you could pick one?

    Mild        =        50 pounds over weight

    Moderate =  100 pounds over weight

    Severe    =    150 pounds +

    I can't really picture myself being overweight cause i have always been thin so.  But if i had to choose one i would choose 50 pounds over weight and turn that into muscle lol.  Or is that cheating????

  5. So im 5 months into a 6 month treatment. Been pretty clear since month 3 on 80mgs/day. My derm decided to cut it back to half, 40mg a day and now 1 month on 40mg a day I am starting to notice some acne coming back. I have like three actives right now whereas I havent had more than 1 at a time for several months now.

    I DID drink a lot 3 nights ago, could this have influenced a small outbreak? Should I be worrying about my dosage or is that "accutane keeps working" true for most people? If my acne comes back badly again, should I opt for another accutane course? This seems to be the only thing that has ever worked for me..

    If I do try for another course is there a waiting period in between? Thanks

  6. Accutane in my opinion isn't as "hardcore" as it is made out to be. For some people it might cause severe problems, but these individuals are a small minority. My derm actually asked me if I had been doing heavy drinking after my blood test showed high liver enzyme levels.. I don't drink, so the increase was definately caused by accutane. By working out a lot more than before and taking a liver cleansing pill I got the levels back to normal.

    Soujah: if your derm doesnt say anything after your next blood test result I wouldn't worry, if he does then stop drinking-- simple as that. The derm won't take you off of tane unless your liver enzyme levels are dangerously high. I think the only way they could be THAT high is if you drink a lot leading up to the test.. if you stop like a week or two before you should be fine.

  7. Are you really dumb enough to plan criminal acts on a *public* website?

    *Seriously*, seriously, seriously bad idea.

    Do not do that, and do not do *anything* bad to that teacher. Anything on a computer is typically recoverable; on the acne.org server, or even the caches of people visiting this thread. There are records all over the internet in multiple countries...

    So no dead or missing bunnies, no shit, no setting fire to stuff, no vandalism to car.

    That teacher sounds like a totally ignorant twat, but breaking the law is a truly *bad* idea.

    Incidentally, modern forensics can trace poo quite easily... and do you really think that nobody on this BBS will grass you out, not one of the lurkers will do that?

  8. Let's make this interesting

    One month from now(April 6, 2005), I will post my picture on this forum. I will be clear. If not >>I<< will leave this forum. Now, I will not have any PIMPLES but I will have PITS and RED MARKS. How I will get there, all organic and a gentil cleanser. Even if I win, I doubt you'll leave. You'll make a new name and start all over again. so stay, you make me so happy knowing I could be worse

  9. That is me, See the thing is... my biggest fear is, what the hell will i look like when im 20..  can anyone visualize what i'll look like?  if this thread is that annoying, get a mod to close it...

    I will say something about humans to make it more psychological....

    People only lash out against others because of their own insecurities, sure everyone knows this... but when someone lashes out at you.... just say, they are making fun of *blank* because they have a small dick....

  10. I'm getting a little desperate.  I switched over to "Sotret" from amnesteem.

    I have not seen any improvement yet.  I know it's all in my head, but that was the point where it just became ridiculous.

    My first month was amazing.  Month 2 is 3 weeks in and not working out for me.  I hope I clear up soon.  Argh.

  11. Yeah it's also true that like 80-90% of people don't even goto the gym or get any sort of adequate workout. That is a huge contributor to fatigue. The more I lift the more energy I have and the better I look and feel; sure work can be stressful and make you feel tired but if you run a mile and do some lifting after or before you'd feel a shitload better the next day.

  12. Yo,

    I was in the same situation as you... First month on tane I was really depressed and did absolutely nothing. When I got the blood test back my triglycerides were high (300 from 50 the past month) so I got really motivated to get back in shape. I started lifting 4-5 times a week and haven't looked back. Now nearing the end of month 4 i've actually put on 7-10lbs of muscle and am stronger than I ever was before tane when I used to lift 3x a week. I'd suggest concentrating on one thing at a time and doing the best you can and eventually things will look up for you.

  13. I dunno I tend to think that looks have a lot to do with first impression. First impression can take you a long way. So while sure a person who is ugly, or who has terrible acne might do the job better than a beautiful person, if the good looking person at least has somewhat comperable credentials they will get the job.

    I think this is true even for hiring in even high paying/"politically correct" environments. It's wrong, but it's how the world works
