  1. Did the regimen stop working for you too then Redsquirrel?
  2. Ok thanks for all the replies, i'll stick to washing with just a plain old soap free cleanser and see how i go. However, is the moistorising step absolutely crucial to the regimen working? The BP takes me long enough in the morning to apply as it is without applying something extra! And like i said, BP has never made my skin dry, flaky or irritable in the slightest.
  3. One tube works out at £4.80 and shipping for one tube is £3.67. So if you're only ordering one then that works out at £8.47. The shipping is cheaper the more tubes you order though.
  4. Thanks for the quick reply Dan. Ok currently I wash morning and night with Neutrogena clear pore wash. This was something that i introduced when i was already clear on the regimen (after about 5 months) to try and unclog my pores a bit more. Then around 20 minutes after washing I apply LOADS of 2.5% BP all over my face which takes around 25 minutes. I've never needed to moisturise because my skin doesn't really get irritated or go flaky with BP. Also approximately once a week i use Avon Clearsk
  5. Ok I'll try not to make this post too long but basically the regimen has stopped working for me. I have been on it for almost a year and up until about August this year it worked great but ever since then I have gradually been getting more and more spots. (Similar to when bacteria has built up resistance to the antibiotics I've used in the past) Now I know that bacteria cannot develop resistance to BP, so why is this happening? The only thing I have changed during the time I've been on the regi
  6. Only thing i can say is try BP to calm your face down. I did that and it seems to have worked (fingers crossed)
  7. I know this might have been answered elsewhere a few times so im sorry if im repeating a question. Does anyone here use a salicylic acid wash followed by the regimen? ie a similar method to botchlas method but leaving the bp on instead of washing it off as he says. thanks for your help
  8. Simon, I felt "feel free to dispute this idea" as you suggested and all you can do is call me a hopeless wanker. With so little research into B5 and acne how can you say it is the only correlation. Oh and by the way, when you have mastered the word "DEFINITELY" feel free to dispute further. Prick.
  9. I had lower back pain in the first month or so too, but it went away after that though. Definitely drink as much water as you can though like DumbandDumber said.
  10. It doesn't have to be severe to get it prescribed on the NHS, £6.40 per prescription if you're over 18.
  11. You might want to try this: http://www.farmamondo.com/ It's by far the cheapest place i've ever seen roaccutane. I did email them once and they require quite a bit of paperwork as well as your derms details and prescription so it sounds legit. However they never got back to me after that so I didn't order from them.
  12. I think it's probably due to the fact that accutane is generally prescribed for a longer period of timer in Americ (5- 6 months is common). In England however, it is only ever prescribed for 16 weeks. Maybe the doses are higher over there too, i'm only on 40mg per day for my course, but i always hear of others taking 80mg.
  13. I regret the fact that my derm didn't put me on it two years ago when i asked him to.
  14. Well i've emailed the guy a few times and he's always got back to me which is more than can be said for a lot of pharmacies ive emailed. Anyway I may be ordering from pillsforall in the next week or so.
