  1. 3 months in Well, heres my last update cause im pretty again!!! my ac is 95% clear aannddd im just finishing my third and last pack of accutane. Little redness but time and moisturizing will clear it I hear. Here are my last updated pics 3.5 months (14 weeks in). If you see my past pics huge improvements, minimal side effects, in the end tane was very worth it. Take Care everyone, thankyou all for your support, this is most def. the best acne board on the net The Texas Kid [attachmentid=53
  2. DAY 47 Heya all, well day 47 is here, havent updated in a while because my skin is doing GREAT, in first set of pics my skin looks pretty good 80% clear, couple blemishes thats it, and in latter pics, small breakouts on each side of my lips and one on my left cheek , skin is lookin a tad oily due to myself not moisturising (gettin lazy, letting tane do its own thing) side effects: major dry lips few times a week (usually in morning), increased sweating whenever I am working out or at wor
  3. hey jbern, well, I drink alot on weekends, so just fri's & sat's, (i drink alot on those nights) and its only effects on me is dry skin the next day, no new blemishes, and being thirsty for lots of water , (p.s Im drinking hard liquor not beer)
  4. UPDATE DAY 29 Whats shakin all, long time no update Sooo my skin is doing MUCH better these days instead of a month ago, the IB was brutal for me, oil production has significantly reduced on my face, i would say i'am 75% clearer , I still get a few small blemishes here and there thats it. My skin looks its best in the morning cause its dry but not flaky, and after a night of heavy drinking (yes, getting shitfaceted) my skin will still look decent, honestly, I believe its from the alchohol, j
  5. whats up, iam in the EXACT same boat as you, mild acne, tried alotta things, oily skin im on day 20 here and I can say that after reading ppl that started out on tane, that (myself in cluded) 3/4 ppl WILL GET the IB, cause your skin is cleansing itself, but day 19 and my skin is looking MUCH better
  6. DAY 19 Well well, my initial breackout has finally vanished and my skin is looking better slowly, Iam beginning to get the "red marks", I shaved yesterday and I swear shaving my facial skin itself is like a minor exfoliation (shaving off dead skin etc.) and I woke up this morning after hard nite of drinking and my skin was a little dry thats it! I was inpressed becuase usually I wake up and i am super dry and flaky all over face. Side Effects: tired at times, minor dry lips, sore back that i
  7. DAY 11 Well, were on day 11, I can definitley say facial skin got the notorius "IB" (initial breakout) which sucks! cause my face looks worse now than when I began the treatment, into day 5 to now I've been getting new bumps and pimples eeww, so whenever I leave the house I wear a hat . My facial skin is about 25% less oily, when I take a shower in the morning ill use cetahil facial scrub and neutrogena gentle facial cleanser, when i hop out of the water my skin gets very dry and i will apply
  8. hey jen, im on day 7, ive been getting flaking facial skin too, every time i hop out of the shower my skin always starts flaking around my mouth than for next 2 hrs i have to keep re-applying moisturiser (cetahil or neutorgena still experimenting which is better) and the dry lips thing is kickin in too, had to goto the store and buy some berry chapstick gl with progress, ttyl tj
  9. DAY 5 update: whats up, well into day 5 and I can definitley tell that I have received the "initial worse breakout", it sucks I couldnt even go out and get wasted 2nite cause I was conscious about my face...damn it! but other than that, I have been sleeping in annd feeling tired alot latley, thats all ttyl teej [attachmentid=4365] DAY 5
  10. Thankyou all for your support Just a side note...my doctor told me of the potential side effects and how expensive the treatment is. I understand I have mild to moderate acne but I have tried BP and the creams and the antibiotics and nothing has solved my problem. So to be quite honest with you, I probably would have paid double for the treatment because I am one, confident that I will have great looking skin in under two months, and second to have the paranoia dissapear of thinki
  11. why am I??? are you kidding me??? I have mild to moderate acne, always had it since I was 15 nor B.P or anti-biotics assists me in ridding of it. Yes my doc has told me the side-effects and to me there worth it, small price to pay for beautiful, HEALTHY looking skin without having the paranoia of thinking in the back of my mind are ppl looking at me or my acne PEACE OUT
  12. hello, whats the best time of day to take accutane? AM or PM? when i first get up? (most effective take to take it of course) thanks
  13. Whats up, my name is TJ I am 21 and I have had mild to moderate acne since I was 12, I've tried a lot of antibiotics and topical creams (B5, tetrocycline, minoclycline, scrubs, proactiv, murad) with little or short term effectivness, so today I decided to visit derm and try accutane since I have had friends on it and it has worked great for them. I've slipped into depression once in my life because of the way i felt about my skin and life is too short to not look good . So I'm gonna fix this,
