  2. sorry to anyone who's been following this topic, i'm a bit late with the monthly update. after the first month, not a huge difference. i took the "before" picture on one of my clearest days in a while, but since then i've had minor breakouts on and off. i've had some serious cysts but no widespread breakouts. i reduced the time to ten minutes a day two weeks ago. overall, i can't yet say that there's been any significant reduction in acne, but no increase either. the red "healing" light doesn't

  5. didn't read all nine pages of the thread, but i just thought i'd share my experiences with Accutane; i'll try to make my response short and to the point. if i'm posting in the wrong thread, please forgive me. condition before accutane: cystic acne, i weigh approx. 120 lbs and i'm a male. non drinker (at the time), nonsmoker, meat eater with a physically demanding job, not sexually active (the whooooole three years i was on it...i was a nerd in high school). dosage: 50mg, then 60 mg the second
