  1. Hey guys my name is Marlee and I've already been on accutane. I was on it from August 2003- April 2004. Long time yes, but it helped A LOT. My skin has never gone back to the way it used to be. Accutane actually made my skin SOFTER. is that weird? For a while I didn't have breakouts, but recently... starting sometime over the summer I began to break out again. It's VERY mild though. It's at its worst right now though. It's easily covered with makeup because theres not much puss, its just kinda b
  2. I used to have an accutane log on here. but I just forgot about it, i have been on accutane since August 7th or something like that. Yeah... its been a long time. 7 months. I really cant think about a day without accutane, and this IS my last month. I thought I would be finished on christmas day and then my derm said I had another 2 months left cause she wanted to see my skin 2 months without a breakout before I could stop. And so here I am... and guess what!? IM NOT BREAKING OUT! And I know im
  3. wow sorry guys. forgot all about this. Weeks 14 and 15: Acne: I have 1 blemish guys. Never thought I would see this day. I have one healing blemish on my right cheek. But i do have a red dot on my nose from skin that i stupidly peeled. Side effects: Everything is going smoothly. No dry skin on face or lips (SOOOOO WEIRD). I've been doing swimming for 3 weeks and i have to say to my skin seems to be a little dry on my body. my arms and legs itch sometimes from dry rashes. But once mois
  4. Are you serious..... its been 13 weeks already!?!?!?! WHOAAAAAAAA Week 13: Acne: ~ Still some red marks from old blemishes, but other than that theres basically no new activity. I hardly wear any makeup anymore... it makes me very pleased with Accutane. Symptoms: ~ As of now i only have the dry eyes... kinda annoying!!! But no dry skin, or lips... guys is this NORMAL!?!?!?! Anyway, I start the swim team on monday... so i'll prob. be getting a lot more symptoms cause of the millions o
  5. WEEK 12: Acne: Not too bad. I had a couple new blemishes this week, i have Noooooo idea why!! Had to get stitches on saturday, right underneath my right eyebrow... so it was harder to wash my face cause i had to keep them pretty dry so maybe that had to do with it... stitches out now.. scar BOO! Symptoms: Eyes are still the only thing dry. On my lips instead of blistex or aquaphor i've been using burts bees lipwax or whatever... its really nice. ugh... my face is getting more of a red
  6. Yeah my vision is really weird.. im in my 12th week of accutane... but yeah, my mom was worried that i may become "blind" so i have an eye doc. appointment soon.... hoping everythings ok and i dont have to stop, but yeah im noticing a difference in my vision... just a tad though-- people dont get too worked up about this. not trying to scare anyone. <3- marlee
  7. I AM SUCH AN IDIOT! I typed up EVERYTHING (and it was pretty long!!!) and i by accident erased it! OK SO WEEK 11 WAS BAD IN THE BEGINNING CAUSE I HAD LIKE 3 ACTIVE BLEMISHES BUT NOW THEY ARE CLEAR. I PICKED THIS ONE BLEMISH A WEEK AGO THAT LEFT BEHIND DRY SKIN AND WHEN I PUT MAKEUP ON IT SEEMS A LITTLE NOTICEABLE, BUT BESIDES THAT... NOT MUCH ON FACE. SYMPTOMS: NO DRY SKIN! ONLY DRY EYES (GETTING MUCH BETTER) EYE DOC APPOINTMENT SOON. AND SAME WITH DERM APPOINTMENT ON TUESDAY, SO BLOOD WOR
  8. Use the cetaphil wash with cetaphil moisturizer... it WONT clog your pores at all..
  9. WEEK 10 UPDATE: Acne: ~ VERY LITTLE AMOUNT! I have like 3 blemishes total. and MINOR red spots. very happy right now Side Effects: ~ Very little side effects... except for dry eyes, and dry inside my nose. Is it weird that my face is not dry? My lips get a little dry around the corners, sometimes bleed but otherwise they are fine. using aquaphor and blistex. Routine: ~ Same as last week.... working well. HALF WAY THERE GUYS! AND HAPPY ABOUT IT! :-D <3- marlee
  10. holy shit. why is everyone so worked up about accutane!? it just pisses me off, cause people who aren't even on it are like complaining about it. I'm almost at week 10 and I'm perfectly fine. I'm sorry that just kinda bugs me to hear people talking so much shit about it.... all ur reading is just crap.
  11. No, i dont take any vitamins or supplements. I asked my derm. about Vitamin E or anything else, and she said not to bother. I'm confused as to why shes saying that, but I don't see that many problems with my face. Almost 10 weeks and i'm seeing improvement. Just gotta give it some time.
  12. hey guys. week 9 is over. WEEK 9: Acne: ~ My trouble area is my chin and also a tiny bit on my right cheek. (near jawline.) Forehead is really clearing up. Even though there are red marks from popping. Yesterday my skin looked awful (prob. from PMS or something) but today its really died down... Side effects: ~Last night did not take a pill (im supposed to skip wed. and sat. now) and my eyes haven't been that dry today. Thats my only complaint right now. Oh yeah... and the red marks...
  13. As long as you are using a non-comedogenic moisturizer you should be fine putting it on at night and it shouldn't make you break out. I'm on accutane, and i use cetaphil wash and moisturizer... i have no problems w/ it.
  14. I weigh around 105 pounds, and I'm taking 40mg a day...
  15. maybe its cause beer has more water than any other drink.... :-k
