    1. That may be true, but don't forget that a large portion of the cut costs are due to the lack of R&D on the part of the "generic" manufacturer.
    2. The seven day window is gone, yes. Why would I be screwed if the 7 day window is passed? Also, the iPledge number just goes to a recording.
    3. I went to my dermatologist on 4/6/06 and they upped my prescription to 80mg/day. That day, I also dropped off my precription to get my meds filled. Well, RiteAid (local pharmacy) said that there is an error in processing and it might just be that I need to wait 31 days before I get the next filling. I wait until the 31 day period is over. My current meds have been draining even quicker while this happens, since I started taking 80mg after my last derm visit, as opposed to 60mg. Now I'm down to
    4. Wait, you're on Accutane AND antibiotics, while also getting cortisone shots? And no, my derm takes a while to fit me in. Also, his office near my home is only open 2 days a week.
    5. I am not embarassed by my condition and I have it pretty bad. I openly browse this at work, people see the banner and ask me about it. I give them a gist about it. Most think it's weird, but they just simply do not understand. Heck, I even tell that I have met a wonderful girl on this forum that I fancy.
    6. KSAF, I know how you feel. I attended a top Computer Science university and my acne absolutely blew up. The 48hr+ "workdays", horrible campus diet, along with relationship bull just was not good for my skin. What is bothering you about your college?
    7. I have a lot in savings, so I think 50% (a 5 figure value) would be a bargain for clear skin that I will never have to worry about. Peace of mind is a very valuable thing. It would be nice if they toss in instantly and perfectly straight teeth, too.
    8. I work in a corporate setting, so yes. I think I am the only one with acne in this company, as most people are at least 30+.
    9. I hated band. I was in percussion in my middle school band (6th and 7th grade). This was waaaaay before I had acne, though.
    10. cutiexoxo121, it sounds like you have tried pleading with him already. You can further push the guilt trip along with a passive threat. Tell him you are extremely desperate, desperate enough to the point where you have ordered 80mg Accutane offline and wish to begin taking it on your own without his supervision. If you say this with a passive tone, he will not take it as a threat. I wish I could come up with more, but it sounds like you have covered all of the other bases. Good luck with your d
    11. Thank you so much, sir. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...7&dopt=Abstract ...for anyone who is curious. Myth busted, I guess.
    12. Yeah, I tried that too. Nothing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collagen

    14. Does the use of Accutane (Isotretinoin) increase collagen output? I have yet to ask my dermatologist this, but my GP advised me that it does increase collagen, thus helping with scarring. I have tried to do some of my own research to back her statements, but I have yet to find anything that explicitly says that Accutane does increase collagen output. Can anyone shed some light on this statement?
    15. I used to have this issue as well. What I started doing is rubbing my lips, after wetting them, with a clean t-shirt. This process removes all of the dead skin from my lips. My lips have never felt so smooth. Your miles may vary, though. Congrats on the gf.
    16. Funny, neither of my parents had acne, yet all of my sibblings and I did.
    17. I'm glad you made such great progress! Oedipus, it seems that you like deep dished rims. What car do you drive?
    18. I know how you feel. It's even worse when someone asks you "Have you tried that Proactiv stuff on TV?".
    19. I know it might be tough, but you can not let acne run your life. Look at my gallery, I had/have acne and red marks that top yours by far. After many years, I decided to get on Accutane. It has changed my life for the better. Don't wait until your acne gets worse, resulting in even more scars.
