  1. Hello, i was deleting some really old mail from years of accumulation and passed by acne.org notifications so i decided to might as well give an update. Last time i took a pill of generic accutane, (Claravis?) was June 1, 2015. Since, my face has never been an issue anymore. I get the occasional white head here and there, sometimes a cystic one but that is mainly my fault 'cause i have become too confident and don't take care of my skin. For example i get drunk, or get home too tired from socc
  2. if you were eating healthy, how did you get all sick? it seems like you had terrible diarrhea and vomiting, food poisoning?
  3. Well i haven't been in here like in 5 months. Some people just disappear when things are going alright and those who remain here are those still struggling. Well i'm back 'cause that's what we're here for--to support and give tips, advice and share experiences... My skin has been pretty clear since i finished Accutane, it wasn't actually Accutane but some generic brand i can't recall but it's all in my past entries. Also, i didn't actually finish the entire course and the whole weight, mg need
  4. Well folks after going weeks without any pimple i got one two days ago, it was a painful little whitehead, i popped and it went away in a day. Not bad considering it's been weeks since i got any blemish. My current regimen is the same as described in the last post. Also, it's cool that i went the entire Summer with clear skin! Also now that fall is here ive noticed my skin isn't as oily as it was during the summer, which was definitely way less than pre-accutane. nothing else, everything i
  5. Surprisingly i haven't had a pimple in like a month. I had this tiny whitehead but it went away the same day. My regimen just includes washing my face with Clean and Clear 10% BP during the morning and at night with regular facewash and on random nights apply Retin A. My face is slightly oily but with summer winding down it's great to say that my face has been clear all summer. It would be great if this remains like this but one can never be too optimistic.
  6. Same regimen. Morning 10% Clean and Clear Benzoyl peroxide. At night regular Clean and Clear face wash followed by Retin A. Results so far? My skin had been clear until this weekend when i got this cyst-like bump on my right cheek but it ended up turning into a small white head. It's going away but leaving a dark spot. That's it. I am grateful for how it is now but i'd rather not have any kind of blemish on my skin. The oil on my face is mild perhaps due to the warm weather and humidity but i
  7. You're absolutely fine! I think you just have some insecure issues or want attention or something. The pics look fine and now you try to downplay it as "pictures being misleading." They would be misleading if it was from a camera from the 1990s. I think you should see a psychiatrist considering most of your posts speak of depression as if your acne was that bad. Have you seen real acne sufferers around here? Hey im just being honest, you look fine.
  8. Do this. Use Clean and Clear Benoyl peroxide 10% morning and night. After two weeks you will thank me. It has to be the Cleand and Clear 10% BP. Nothing else! don't add extra chemicals, soaps, NOTHING. Don't tell me you have tried everything, and even what i just recommended. just do it for two weeks
  9. isn't that a little bit too much stuff on the face, eventually the skin will become stressed out as it adjusts to various creams, lotions, potions, etc causing break outs . Have you talked to the dermatologist?
  10. I currently have no acne on my face. It's smooth and clear. Last week i had a little lump on my cheek but it went away in two days. Perhaps it's all better because of my new regimen: clean and clear BP 10% during the morning, regular Clean and Clear facewash at night followed by Rentin A. It dries my skin after each wash but then oil returns but i have to say, my face isn't as oily as before the 2nd course of accutane AND DEFINITELY not as oily as before as the first time i used accutane.
  11. Hello, Well i finished my last pill of accutane 30 days ago, i did two months only and the last month i took on my own will for like 6 months, anyway... When i just stopped taking accutane i had like 3 little white head and last week i had a bump on my cheek that quickly went away. That's it. Not bad. And my oil has been a little bit above normal considering it's summer and i live in a very humid city. My regimen has been washing with regular face wash (clean & clear) micro sub day
  12. 1st month (October, 2014) - 60mg/day 2nd month (November, 2014-June 1st 2015)- 80mg/ day taking within the span of 7 months Eventhough i haven't had a cyst in like 5 months, oil has started to return to a moderate level. Considering i have been taking, on my own accord, accutane once in a while, skipping days, even weeks i think it would have been best to forever take accutane with small doses here and there. It has absolutely worked great. I will talk to my dermatologist next time around. H
  13. I've been dispersing my accutane pills for the 2nd month of December 2014 and now finally im down to my last 5 pills of 40mg. Once again, i gotta mention i have been out of Dermatologist care since February, 2015, since i asked the doctor to take me out of Accutane due to very bad side effects. So it's been a month since i have taken 5 accutane pills and i don't know if it's the summer or the accutane dissipating from my system but oil has definitely been returning. However, i havent broken o
  14. Thanks Hope but that seems like a time consuming regimen. Warm water in the morning and regular facewash is working fine, trying to avoid all those chemicals unless completely necessary.
  15. First month: 60mg/day second month: 80mg/day for the past 4 months SAD TIMES, Well i am down to my last 10 pills of Accutane. I have been on my 2nd month since December 2014 and have been out of Dermatologist care since February but i am finishing up my last pills from my second month. The last time i took 5-days of accutane pills was late March and went 5 weeks without taking any pill and guess what? Oil returned! It returned to not a significant amount but i'm sure after 2-3 months it w
  16. Hmm interesting stuff, so you know i have been taking Accutane here and there for the past 5 months, though only of two months supply. Had to end it early because of side effects and stuff. So i have 5 pills left, i took five pills 3 weeks ago and my skin has remained dry. Usually i would stop taking it for two weeks and oil would return. After three weeks my skin is scaly dry, specially on my cheeks, very noticeable too. Interesting, could my oil glands have adopted to dryness rather than t
  17. Sigh. So tonight showering i noticed the first pimple on my face after like 3 months of not getting one. Before i just had one little zit but this one is a midsized lump. I touch it and press on it but it doesn't hurt. Hopefully it's just a mosquito bite, don't know yet. Since like my 15thday day of pills, which was sometime around mid November 2014 my regimen has only consisted of regular facewash at night and plain water during the mornings, perhaps i should start considering adding so
  18. Lee I've seen people's skin on accutane clear up in the last 4 or 5 months, also what regimen are you using? Not sure how dry your skin is but use BP, the reason your breaking up is cause of the bacteria ll around it, BP right now will clear all of that in less than a week.
  19. To recapitulate, i started Accutane on November 1 and i PERSONALLY ended it late December for side effect reasons. And last month, February, my dermatologist officially ended it. Since Late December i have been taking my 2nd month 30 day of pills randomly. For example i have 10 days of pills left, which i started taking yesterday again so i'm on day 52. I'm only gonna take until day 55 and take the Last 5 days of pills sometime mid April or so. Hopefully it doesn't affect my liver since i'm
  20. is one of the side effects of Accutane no longer organizing writing into paragraphs?
  21. So what happened? Did you eventually and naturally stopped getting acne? What are you doing now for treatment?
  22. So it's been two months and a half since i've broken up! As many may already know i took accutane, started my own regimine due to harsh side effects and eventually ended. I realized i still have 10 pills left, so i think i will take 5 on April and 5 on May. I already saw my dermatologist last week and she stopped my treatment but i don't think taking 5-5 in two months will do any harm correct? Hope not. Gotta prepare for summer.,.. yup, summer! What is up with the sebaceous glands and su
  23. Hello cool people, I have good news and bad news ... It's been a month and a half since i posted and i FINALLY went to see my dermatologist.... So today could have my 3 months and 3 weeks on accutane, or roughly 115th day on accutane but instead the past four months since i started accutane i have been taking accutane whenever i can and wanted. I did my firs tmonth straight 30 days of pills and my last 2nd month i dispersed it taking an average of 10 pills/ month. Of course this wasn
  24. Thanks Lee but trying to avoid more pills while on the 'tane
  25. 1st month: 60mg/day 2nd month: 80mg/day My lips have gotten much better that it doesn't irritate and burn when it's not moisturized. Probably because i haven't taken Accutane in like 3 weeks. So yesterday i continued... The flakiness in my skin has also subsided, perhaps also because i only wash my face at night with face wash and not in the mornings. Still i'll say in the past 5 weeks i only had little spot on my left cheeck, which quickly went away. I've also gained about 7 lbs since
