  1. Thanks, I think I could use all the luck I can get! I'm very happy to hear that your skins cleared up! I can't wait til I myself hit the two month mark! My skin actually seems to be clearing and calming after the initial frenzy, so I'm crossing my fingers that it continues this way for now. I was just wondering what kind of products you've been using to wash your face while on Accutane, and if you've been left with any hyperpigmentation now? Sorry for the late reply! I use the Neutrogena Ext
  2. I have struggled with acne since I was about 10. I am currently 16, soon to be 17 and FINALLY have gotten rid of my horrific cystic acne thanks to Accutane. I was originally suppose to be on it for 7 months but my skin is doing so good that my dermatologist said my course will end with me taking Accutane for 5 months. It is almost month 3 I believe and my skin hasn't had a single flare-up for a few weeks. The first few weeks for honestly worse than anything I have ever had. I had bad acne but we
  3. Woah, late post, eh?! I actually am going into my 3rd month of Accutane this month! I am 100% clear minus random pimples. I didn't see improvement until about week 7. I broke out worse than ever and was suppose to be on Accutane for 7 months because it was so severe but now I will be ending Accutane sometime in October/beginning of June. Thank you for your reply, though! I tried that antibiotic as well (and so much more, hence Accutane) and it didn't help much. I am so glad it worked for you. Ac
  4. I was taking 40mg the first month. Basically up until a month I was taking 40mg and after the month I was doing 40mg, 60mg and now I'm taking 40mg starting today. Thanks for answering by the way! I'm sorry if I'm confusing you. Let me try making this more understanding:First prescription fill: 40mg a day Second fill: 3 boxes of 20mg (2 20mg one day, 3 20mg other day) Current fill: 40mg a day Is that more correct sounding? It's been 8 weeks since I started. We have already established that yo

  6. I'm sorry to hear. I was on Tretinoin for over 14 weeks before I was refereed to a dermatologist and prescribed Accutane. I'm on month two now and I'm clearped up besides a piece of skin I just HAD to pick until it turned raw. I'm hoping to be done October but was originally planned to be on it until December but my sevre acne cleared so well. I wish you the best of luck!
  7. I made a new account aside from this one and tried posting an Accutane question but I guess it didn't post as it is not in my topics on my other profile. Basically, I have a few problems. Them being: -Went to my monthly check-in.Dermatologist originally had me to be on Accutane for 6, even 7 months. Now she is saying I have two appointments left because the final month I don't need to be seen. I've only been on it for 2 months. (2 months exactly on the 21st) I had severe acne that NOTHIN
  8. Thank you! I'm very excited to start the road to clear skin. I don't even care if my acne gets worse while on it because I know that within 5 months, I should be clear. I didn't get any kind of initial breakout, so hopefully you will be all clear without getting it worse That's awesome! I hope I don't get one. I'm prepared I guess if I happen to. Skin update/21 more days until Accutane: A dilemma came up. I got my iPledge ID number and password in the mail and last night I went to fill o

  10. 25 more days until Accutane. UGH. Why is this going by so damn slow? I'm too anxious! I just want to start it! My face has gotten worse, of course. I have a bunch of small, red, nearly whitehead pimples on my forehead and 2 almost gone (I think) cysts near both my eyebrows. I have a bunch of hard red pimples on my lower cheeks and jawline and a few small pimples near my chin. It looks so bad. I recently cut my fingernails so short so I couldn't pop them. I've been putting dabs of Neosporin o
  11. I was on it before maybe 2 years ago? I don't know. It was only $30 or $20. I don't like this new insurance crap. On the bright side, my iPledge papers came in the mail to register online!
  12. Our insurance used to be good until the Obama Care. We're paying $100 more for prescriptions. My dermatologist put me back on Differin until Accutane and it cost $177! Like what the hell?! We're covered for lab (my mom gets it done a lot from her cancer she had a while ago) so I'm not worried about that. I live in America. They don't give you anything for free. lol
  13. Alright, awesome. Thank you. I just hope my prescription isn't expensive. Ever since Obama Care, we used to pay $30 for a prescription and now we pat $130. I'm worried how much Accutane is going to be. My derm told me to take it after my day's last meal Thank you!
  14. This is very exciting. As some of you may know, I've dealt with acne since I was 10 years old. I tried literally every topical and antibiotic a doctor and/or dermatologist could prescribe. I went into the dermatologist about 2 weeks ago or so and when I handed her the list of everything I've tried, the first thing she said was Accutane. I'm not gonna lie, I geeked out a little bit. Okay, maybe I just smiled but still. Inside I was geeking out. Majorly. She told me and my dad that we could start
  15. Hope all is well. My face is freaking out for some reason again. Whenever I wash my face, afterwards these red pimples on my forehead are very visible and within 30 minutes you can't see them. I stopped Tretinoin about a week ago due to unwanted worsening of the skin. I had talked to my boyfriend about Accutane for literally a month. I kept saying wanted it, but now I don't. I don't want to go through the whole process, I don't want my doctor to be involved because knowing her, she will not get
