  1. Hey. whats your experience with sun while being on accutane? Also tell me how big your dosage was. ty! One more question: When you take the accutane pills, do you spread them out during the day or do you take the full dose 1 time a day?
  2. Just took my first pill. Going to be either my best decision or my worst. I'm only afraid of permanent side effects which people have reported quite a bit about on this site .. But i have to assume that's extremely unlikely..
  3. Hey. few hours ago i got prescribed accutane and i'm planning on starting it tonight already. I've been afraid of taking it for several years, but i finally decided to do it. I asked my derm about a low dose / micro dosage of accutane. I ended up agreeing to a 20mg a day for a few weeks, then i might start with a higher dosage. I'm quite nervous to be honest. I might even start taking 20 mg every 2 days without telling my derm . we'll see.. So your brother has taken accutane? Ask him about it
  4. And how exactly does it shrink the oil glands? Nobody seems to know the exact answer to this. You say that the gland will "SLOWLY" return, yes and if it does, so will the acne, and then it's not permanent. If the oil gland doesn't come back, then i'm sure we can agree that we can use the term "destroyed, right?
  5. It's funny how 50% of the people here didn't even understand the meaninig of this post. Let me try to explain this. When we are talking about a medicine and a cure to a disease, you want that medicine to get rid of it forever. Or else, it wouldn't be called "cure". You take antibiotics to get rid of bacteria. In most cases, this bacteria is something that your body doesn't naturally produce. After the treatment of antibiotics, this bacteria wont return to your body, That is the purpose of a cur
  6. The thing about science is that it is never about 'believes' and 'feelings'. Science isn't about someone 'you know' science doesn't care what we 'think'. All of this is actually the beauty of science and why we do not live in the middle ages. So from a scientific perspective most acne is caused by western diet, but maybe for you it is due to something else and to others it is caused by everything from weather to god and devil and evil goblins in dark forests or alien invasions and so on. The

  9. I think it is great you ask a lot of questions. The problem is the answers you give. Have you really done your research looking into scientific studies linking acne to diseases, risks, cause of acne etc? I see you answer my questions pretty short with no explanation. You say acne is a sign of something bad? elaborate about that please. I believe if acne was conisdered "pretty", nobody would say acne was a sign of something bad. The body doesn't care if your nose is big, if you lack of hair, o
  10. Hi everyone. As most of you here know, accutane is in most cases taken to cure acne. Accutane was not made to cure acne, it just happened to be good for it. I don't think the medicine was ever adjusted after the chemo drug was out - leaving it to be a mysterious and much speculated drug for acne. Personally, ive been debating on taking accutane for years. I first got the offer from my doctor years ago, but i never returned to accept it. Reason? horror stories from the internet, mostly. I a
  11. i was on 600 mg and im like 200 pounds. How long are you supposed to be in this dosage?
  12. Hey, i haven't taken accutane myself, but i've read quite a bit about it and some of the questions are kind of obvious (in my opinion) . 1. You're afraid to do workout because you're afraid that your testosterone level will raise and affect your acne? Accutane does not affect your testosterone level, so why would the training now affect it? If accutane did work for you, then training should not be a problem. 2. It's suggested that you wait 2 weeks after using antibiotics, so i assume it's
  13. 1000 mg? wth dude. i was on 600 mg a day and that was considered "high dosage". What makes you think you need that much?
  14. Hey again. The first thing you will notice is that you will get less and less acne. Keep track on those you have at the moment, and notice in 1-3 weeks that you wont get any new ones. Epiduo shouldn't be used more than once a day, at least not at the beginning. Your skin will eventually tolerate it better, so it wont feel that bad later on. Dirt brought to the surface? uhh , maybe you're talking about blackhead?
