  1. I am very satisfied with my face! If i will listen my dr. I should stop with taking pills, but I am on "only" 85 mg/kg. I will proceed and stop when it will be 115 mg/kg, so it will be 270 days or excatly 9 months. I want to know, how often people take so long pills like me? My blood test is ok, even a better how it was before 3-4 months (because I do not drink alcohol anymore, but still drinking coke and eat fa(s)t food)
  2. My opinion, better is if you do not have side effects (except dry lips) and take pills longer. At least, this is my and my dr. strategy in fight with acne.
  3. How long I should wait before second course!? For example, i will be on pills till May (and 2 weeks in May) ...i hope so i will be safe from "no acne" at least 2-3 months during a summer. Do you believe in it!? It mean till end of August i will without Roaccutane... If acne will appear, definitly i will go to 2nd course. What is in most cases "test time" to see what will happen with acne? What doctors says?
  4. I am on dosage of 30 mg, about 0.4 mg/kg. I am on Accutane about 5 months. My face is clear (no acne), but redmarks is still here...every month less. I will talk with my dr. and ask him if I can take pills for 4 months more! He said before i start that therapy lasts 6-9 months, but last 3 with decrease gradually. I want take pills for 9 months, because i am on "only" 0.4 mg/kg. Anybody? Who has take Accutane for 9 months!?!? If i take it for 9 months, i will be almost on 115 mg/kg. On 6 month
  5. Yes, I tried differin cream. It did nothing for me. I thing it was in that way because my face was terrible at this time. Lots of papules and pustules... Second time when I was tried something like concentrat of vitamin A, my face was destroyed...a thousand of little bumps which going to be worst in couple a days...so, there was! I am scared to put something which contain vitamin A on face! But now (when i finished course), maybe it can help me...now,i do not really have acne-just red marks!!!
  6. Evo dobro je! Izgleda da ti nesto i znas na hrvatskom. I will be a happiest person if i could read and post on my language on acne.org! haha
  7. I am from Croatia, east Europe. That is ok what you say, but i have exactly problem on some places! And I believe when my beard grew up, my problem will disappear! On my forehead were acne, but i do not mean that it will appear again after my course of Raccutane.
  8. I am a male, 22 years old. Now, I am on Roaccutane for about 5 months. I have good results with therapy... If my doctor say, maybe i will take it for 3-4 months, but i will decrease my dose. I take 30 mg per day and my weight is cca. 70 kg. My problem is tiny acne. I do not know how you call them, maybe bumps. It is something like comedonal acne, sometimes whiteheads. After a while, they come to be papules and pustules...in my worst period. I do not have papules and pustules for a months! This
  9. Is this safe for skin while I am on Roaccutan?! I do not have acne anymore (almost)...but I have a lots of red marks. So I need something to speed up process of healing...except time. So, glycerol (glycerin - i do not know what is...but i think it is the same thing) is it ok!?
  10. Are you sure for this - neosporin?! Anyone else about that!? Maybe it will cause breakout!? How long you take this?
  11. I am on Roaccutan and do the same. If I wash my face in the morning before i go out, my face is 5x times worst...red and red marks are more visible. So, do not wash your face in the morning, only at night. And, if you put some "good" cream at night, it will smooth your face till morning. It is good advice for everyone...especially for us whom are on Roaccutan. I read a hundred times about that in (Ro)acutane posts.
  12. The esthetician must be extra carefull. I have very good esthetician. I have one facial treatment before i start Accutane and after 2-3 weeks. I will go again. I have clogged pores with acne co i need to go on facial treatment. Initial breakout will kill me, if i do not go to clear my face. So, it is ok to go but very very carefull and go there where you know for somebody with experience. And, i must say my face on accutane after facial back to normal faster than before!
  13. What can we do with that!? What is the point, why is this happens!? I do not want this after few months of Accutane!!! Is this happen to you!?
  14. I have a problem with my english... Yes, i mean it, extracting blackheads and whiteheads. Maybe i will easier survive initial breakout...i hope so when will be 2 months of Accutane it can be better and with very mild acne, so i wont go every 2-3 weeks on treatments. I try to find something what will do something for my skin texture, if you understand me...red marks and similar shits...something what will affect colagan...and healing will be faster. I know for "enzyme peeling"...it is not "stron
  15. I am on 22nd day of Accutane...i think i am still in early part of treatment...but when healing will be slower!? After a month or 2-3-4 ?! I ask because i go on facial treatment...every 2-3 weeks. I have a lots of whiteheads and blackheads...and my doctor said that i have to clean this. It is too long if Accutane only doing thing...so we will faster process. 1st facial treatment was good...face is calm down in few days... Face is better 10x times because of that...
  16. I do not want say something beforehand...but on my 14th day...i can noticed that my marks fade faster...maybe because is my skin to dry...but i put every night cream for Roaccutan (Uriage Apaisac). I think i am not 1st...somebody write that is in same position like me about marks and faded faster!
  17. In my case...it was like shit. Big cyst in only 10 days after last BP putting. It takes a few months to get off that cyst...i thought it never past.
  18. I heard that Accutane results is better for older...20> ?!?! And...is it better for clogged-pores or inflamatory acne!? My acne were change in whiteheads and comedo acne...but before a year i have very inflamatory acne!!! I always have clogged pores but now is good how it was before!!! And i noticed that acne heal faster on accutane...or it is not?!!? Maybe because i am on sixth day...later it will not go on that way and heal slower!
  19. It is better to wait... You can start with accutane after parties, because it is not good miss a dose. You do not have nothing to lose in this short time...you must all the same take accutane 4-5-6 (or longer) months... I put tattoo and have to wait two weeks and then start with therapy. If you start immediately, maybe initial breakout will destroy you...you thing it is bad now...it can be worst at first time!
  20. I try to find some information on internet about that - connection of acne and hairloss. But it is few pages... And now, you start discuss about it. I will start with my acutan therapy next week. And i am afraid that it will cause problem with my hair. My father is bald, but from my mother side, grandfather has a great hair. I do not know what to do!? I will start and if it goes wrong, i will stop therapy! But what if i initiate baldness!?!!?!? big shit...
  21. I am afraid of that...i still waiting to start with acutane because initial breakout... I will go to a facial before...maybe breakout will not be so bad.
  22. I will wait for two weeks and will start with therapy. I think it is ok... I need to put on tatoo cream 3-4 times a day for first two weeks. I will continue with cream after first two weeks because acutan.
  23. Anybody have experience with that!? I put my tattoo before 5 days. But i have to start with acutane therapy...should i wait for a week or more?! Maybe it is not important because acutane is on start and do not work with "full power", what do you think?!
  24. I`m 22. I think that Roaccutan works better for older people than a younger (<15-16). I read somewhere about it. I will start with therapy next week. I am sure (now that it will help me! We will see! I don not know what to do if it won`t help me...i tried everything (almost). Am I wrong with that about how roaccutan works better for older people? Correct me if it is not true!
  25. I am afraid that i will lose my hair after acne! I have bad acne now...almost two years is terribly. My life is fucked up now because of that and what i can expect after that...?!?! I spent a lot of money but my face is still looking bad.
