  1. Hey there, Don't mean to scare you or anything but I am currently one my second course of accutane because my acne came back but it was about two and a half years between my current course and my first course. My derm thinks that my first derm didn't prescribe me the correct dosage so my accutane came back. But my skin was clear after my first course. I have pics in my gallery to show you how bad my skin was before accutane. I have pics to after. My skin progressively got better after my fi

    Absorica (Accutane) Not Working ?

    Hey there, I am on my second course of accutane with amnesteem. My derm wanted me to go on Absorica but it was too expensive compared to Amnesteem. How many mg are you taking daily? My derm thinks the reason my acne came back is because during my first course, my derm only prescribed me 20mg once a day for five months and she also said it was also because of Claravis- the brand I was taking at the same time. But my new derm raved about absorica. But She said I was suppose to be on 60mg daily
  3. Hey there, It honestly just really depends on the person and how you react to the medication. Everybody is different. I am on my second course of accutane. My first course, I took it for about five to six months. By month five for me on my first course of acctuane, I was completely clear and my skin was glowing. I have pics on my gallery in my profile if you want to check them out. Some people don't actually become really clear until the end of their accutane journey and that is because accu
  4. I am on my second accutane course. My derm told me not to go on claravis. I was on it my first time and she said I was prescribed to low of a dosage during my first course. I weigh the same as I did during my first round. She told me that I should have been prescribed a higher dosage of 60mg which I was on 20 mg before. She also said that she sees more patients for a second course from taking claravis. She said it does not absorb as much compared to amnesteem or absorica but absorica is to expen

    Ended Accutane After 3 1/2 Months

    Accutane takes time. Finish your course. Like you said in your fourth month, everything is starting to clear....keep going until the end of your course and you will be cleared. If you stop to early, your acne could come back. I was on it for about six months

    Still Want Accutane. But Dunno.

    I would try accutane. I am on a second course but that is just apart of life. My current derm says I wasnt prescribed the correct dosage during my first course. But accutane did clear my skin up tremendously, Seriously. Check out my pics in my gallery and see for yourself. And to the whole diet thing,when it comes to acne, you might as well through it out of the window because when I took accutane during my first course, I was healthy. Even before when I was on accutane and had horrible acne, I

    3Rd Course Of Accutane?

    Hey I am 22 years old, I have hormonal acne. My hormones are just crazy. Your derm is right though about the dosage. If you aren't responding to other dosages, they will increase your dosage. I was actually not prescribed the correct dosage my first time according to my current dermatologist and she believes that is why my acne came back. I weigh the same as I did during my first course. She said that I needed to be on a higher dosage. I was on 40mg daily the first month, then 20mg daily the rem

    Am I Taking Too Much Roaccutane?

    Hey, I am currently on my second course of accutane. My current derm believes there is a reason why. She thinks that I wasn't prescribed the correct dosage my first time which was back in 2010. I still weigh the same. I am 5'11 and weigh 135lbs. I think I was 5'9 or 5'10 during my first course.My first course I was prescribed 40 mg my first month and then dropped down to 20 mg for the remainder of my course of about five months. My current derm said that i should be taking more than that sinc

    Accutane 2Nd Course Questions

    Hey there! I am on my second course of accutane as well! It sucks but hey everbody is different and I am glad for accutane! I am only on day 20 but hopefully my input can help you! Now like I said, everybody is different. My side effects during my first course was nose bleeds, joint pain, chapped lips and dry face but I took my first course right before summer happened. Now that it is winter time, it is a little different I guess. A lot has happened for me. I had extremely oily skin both tim

    Drinking On Accutane?

    As a fellow college student on accutane and on a second course, I suggest you not drink for the time being. With all the stress and things going one while we are in college, our body is already working hard. And with accutane in our system, it doesn't really help our immune system, especially when it is drying is out like crazy. The liver is suffering enough and adding alcohol is not a good idea. I also suggest that you do not skip your pills either......I mean it would defeat the whole purpose
  11. It really depends. Everybody is different. I am currently on my second course of accutane but that is because my currently dermatologist said my old dermatologist did not prescribe me the correct dosage. I still weight about the same during my first time on accutane. I was taking 40mg the first month, then 20 mg a month there after but my current derm said I should have been prescribed 60mg. I weigh 135lbs just to let you know. Just make sure you are being prescribed the correct dosage by speaki

    Claravis Questions

    Hey there, Hope I can answer some of your questions. I took Claravis back in 2010 and was 19 years old at the time and it completely cleared me up. Trust me accutane works but to warn you it really depends on your body. My oily skin came back at the end of 2012. It wasn't really oily in 2011 and most of 2012 but slowly it got worse. I am currently on my second course of accutane and I am on my 15th day of accutane. But i am one of those rare cases where you have to go on accutane again. My s
  13. So Here are some of my pics during the last month of my first accutane course and some pics post accutane course....Check out some of my preaccutane pics in my other gallery to see how bad my acne was. I will post one of the preaccutane pics on here to show you a comparison. Hope it inspires you!
  14. Hello everyone! Here is my story..... Hope you all are having a fantastic day. A little bit about myself, I am 22 years old currently, Asian if that matters lol, In college attending the greatest school in Florida pursuing a degree in Nursing! Let's see, I have taken accutane before back in 2010, I think between May of 2010-October 2010. I have posted some pics of myself in the accutane gallery of how many skin looked like preaccutane first course. I have always visited acne.org ever

    Before First Round of Accutane

    So I wanted to show you guys what my acne looked like before I started my first round of accutane. This are my old pics of me during my senior year of hs back in 2009. As you can see it was pretty bad. I did not start accutane until Spring of 2010, the ending of my freshmen year of college. But I want to show you all that this is a miracle drug that really does work and it completely cleared my skin after taking it....These are my pics preaccutane and prebraces lol
