  1. Th oilyness will gradually start to come back, but hopefully your pores will remin clear and as will your facial acne! What are you using for maintenance mate - a topical retanoid? Good luck and hoping all works out for you!
  2. Are you retarded and cannot comprehend the idea of splits? Monday-Push Day, mainly bench and some sub free weight stuff Tuesday-Cardio and Abs/core strength Day Weds-Legs, squats and other leg sub excerises Thurs-Cardio and Core strength/abs Fri-Push Day, Bumbell Press, Back, tri's and anything I may have missed on Monday. Apologies, misread the question slightly, but even still many people are doing 24/7 weight or weight gain training. As for being retarded, I think you know 'where
  3. Thanks for your replies people. Proverbial, thanks for your confidence boost too. I've been on many a strict diet i.e. those crappy 'acne no more' e-books and the BP Regimen helped but never cleared me. Here's hoping this wonderful drug lasts. I'll also consider taking it long-term in small doses if need be. Wouldn't ever hesitate to give it another full shot as of now either! Enigmatic_786 and Posh, thank you both for your comments and cheers Posh, hope you find happiness to bud and that all
  4. Hi all, Quick background: Acne since age of 17. I'm now a 23 year old male. It has always been mild-moderate, more moderate but EXTREMELY persistant and only on my face really. Been on 40mg Tane for 10 weeks now with absolutely fantastic results. Nearly clear, in fact I am really bar a couple of small red marks, great! Nobody in my immediate family has acne. My parents never did, my brother is 21 and he has it slightly, really mild and it's blatently his lifestyle if you ask me! The only per
  5. My initial breakout was horrid. I got like 1 spot after a month of Tane and I think i've had about 2 more since and now i'm on week 10. Horrid, horrid! Ha ha, hope it works out for you as well as it did for me mate!
  6. You're one of the 2-3% of unlucky ones then mate for who it doesn't do much for. Sucks.
  7. Why are some people weight training every day or 5 days consequetively? Have you no idea that in order to build muscle, prevent strain and pain and achieve your overall gain you need to have rest periods in between training. I train on a Mon, Wed, Fri and intense cardio on sun. Mainly benching weights, but I still rest. Doing this will prevent continuous aches. Of course I ache after I finish training on Tane, but even so, it would be far worse if I kept training day after day. Fish oil tablet
  8. It's different if you're a woman with long hair (or a bloke I suppose, like shoulder length), but if you're not and you shower each day, like all people blo*dy should, then it's a piece of pi*s to wash your hair (a 1 min job if that) so why not do it everyday. Sorry, but sounds like a stupid question mate that deserves a stupid answer. In that pic your hair looks short so do yourself a favour and wash it when you shower.
  9. I used it once a night along with Accutane for about 6 weeks as per the BP Regimen guidelines. I definately think it helped with the initial breakout (helped prevent it no doubt) and I didn't experience any overdrying or burning sensations. It was a great combo. However, unlike AmberLynn I cut it out for good on the 6th week as how on earth can you tell whether it's the BP OR ACCUTANE working when you use them both together - stupid idea! Try it for the first few weeks, once you get dry or are
  10. Thanks all, once every two days hair washing it is then. Will update soon. Thanks again and all the best. Greg
  11. Yeah thanks mate. And I am calm, just another factor of something that goes wrong to add to the list you know! I mean, if this can't be effectively controlled and I have to avoid wearing dark clothing i'll be well p*ssed off! Thanks.
  12. Hi all, Been on 40mg Tane a day for about 10 weeks now. I'm a male 23 years old with moderate acne. I've NEVER had dandruff before and wash my hair once daily at all times - most of the time twice. I've started getting dandruff and am very disheartened, a trade in for being 'nearly' free of acne no doubt. Has anyone else experienced this, a sudden onset of dandruff while on Accutane (if tane is actually responsible of course) and can they offer any advice please? Thanks Greg
  13. Of course it would my freind. Hence the role of Accutane which managed to reduce sebum production 9excess oil) and thus prevents pores fro clogging and P-acnes to develop. Moisturising is essential with Tane.
  14. did u have an inital breakout on 40mg a day? Im 9 weeks in and NO INITIAL BREAKOUT - So hopefully that means i'm in the 'Clear'. Although, UI did combine the BP Regimen with Tane for the first 4 weeks and that worked very well indeed and i'm guessing helped prevent a breakout. Niow, 5 further weeks down the line and i've come off the BP only a week ago and am hoping i'm not going to breakout as a result! Touch wood!
  15. Hi all, I went for my 2 month checkup last Tuesday (been on 40mg per day of Tane) and my derm said things were going well. My skin has cleared up loads and I feel fine bar the lips, joint ache etc. Trouble is, he said that I DIDNT need to take a Blood Test as everything seems OK. IS THIS RIGHT!!??? That means I won't have a blood test and checkup for another 6 weeks now. Cheers Greg
  16. Hello people, Been on Tane at 40mg a day for 9 weeks today now and have had very pleasing results. In fact, i've been seo very happy that when I get a spot now it hurts and pisses me off more than it did before!! I've been 95% clear with the exemption of 2 tiny tiny whiteheads but Saturday night i've had a huge inflammed 1CM papule come up and i've knocked a layer of skin off the top - stupid I know, that'll teach me to try and gently squeeze any puss out. It'll be there for a good 4-5 days no
  17. Thanks for your comments all, really glad for everyone thats on tane and seeing good results. For all the others, don't fret. Tane is a wonderful drug that despite the numerous possible 'physical' side-effects, they are nothing compared to the emotional effects of having acne. Stick with it and just vision your clear face in the future. Hell, I can't see you, but I bet you're all damn good looking mutha-fucks! I'm just loving it. Isn't it strange how clear skin can change your life so so mu
  18. Thanks people. My pi*s is crazy! More water definately needed then, and if it helps with the lips, that's a bonus! I normally take my tablet with a full meal, lunch and dinner. But it still rumbles quite a lot when i'm trying to get to sleep about 3-5 hours after my meals. Who knows, here's hoping my bloodwork and liver is OK though. I've been getting pretty p*ssed recently too, I know, damn stupid, but having clear(er) skin is just wicked and i'm loving life at the mo! Thanks again acne cre
  19. What a crap post pal. There is no direct correlation at all between an initial breakout or not and better overall results from Accutane. Instead, you need to take into account other factors like: How serious was your acne before tane?Your age - obviously hormonal fluctuations in teens are still going to contribute to breakouts in all likelihoodWas your acne under control before Tane, or nearly through meds like BP etc?For me, I can say I had moderate acne but it was becoming controlled quickly
  20. How long you been on it now pal? Good luck to you. I'm a little worried about my dose increase to 60MG this coming Tues, but if it breaks me out, i'm gonna drop down to 40MG and do a long-term course instead.
  21. Hi, I've got the usual cracked lips and slight back joint pain, but I wondered if anyone has experienced these: Real stomach churns, like hunger grumbles but pretty much all the time!! They're blo*dy loud!BRIGHT LUMINOUS Yellow Urine man!! I'm talking mainly about my morning pee, just jesus, you could paint a picture with this stuff!Hope you can help - a little scared! Cheers Greg
  22. Brief background people....... I'm a male, 23 years of age and have dealt with acne since about 17 years old. It's moderate but damn persistant and i've tried every treatment except tane. Hit the worst point in my life about 2-3 months ago, felt like suicide numerous times, especially being away from home at university in final year. Decided what the heck, i'll give the Tane a shot as otherwise there's a good chance i'm gonna take my life anyway. So here we are 2 months later. I've been on 40M
  23. BUMP everybody!!!!! Come on this will definately be one of the most useful polls for all Accutane users.
  24. Just take it with your full meal mate. I take mine at lunch and evening dinner - simple as that and then there's no room for 'oh it isn't working because.....' bla bla bla. Good luck.
  25. Well regardless of what Wolfkeeper sdays, even though he is the expert, I have been combining the BP regimen with 40MG of Accutane for 6 weeks now today. I have had pretty good results, although still get quite a few small spots each week bu they're nothing compared to the big ones I used to get. I haven't become dry at all yet, lips and body skin has, but face is normal as was very oily before. I'm ONLY applying the BP at night but it saved me from an initial breakout and has definately helpe
