  5. oh my god:| serisously. shud i stop right away?? iv only experienced it the last few days.. last night my heart waspretty fast and my breathing felt a bit funny but i didnt no if it was accutane or not.. i feel better today? if i was havin an allergic reaction cud this happen at any point? not jus when i first start accutane. i guess i thought an allergic reaction wud happen straight away... has anyone else experienced breathlessnes???
  6. i will do. i start 40mg this evening. im kinda worried jus cuz iv only been on 25mg but have had hairloss and kinda breathlessnes...liek i feel like i cant get enough air in sometimes and totally cant handle another breakout like i got in the second week of 25mgs. i will keep you updated. hope your higher dose goes ok! x
  7. so i went to her dermatlogist yesterday and they decided to put me up to 40mg from 25.. and i am rely worried! ive been on 25mg for nearly a month and have had dry dkin dry lips etc but my spots are still ther. anyway... i had a reeeeely bad initial breakout from the 25mg in the first week.. i mean it was terrible and is jus starting to clear. so.. i am away to start takin 40mg.. is it likely i will get another initial breakout from other peoples experience.. thanks for any replies. really appr

  10. oh god... thats horrible! im reely worried...i went straight onto accutane after takin oxytetracycline... ther was jus one day between the two.. doesnt that mean i will stil have it in my bloodstream or whatever? my dermaotlogist never said to wait any length of time beofre startin accutane after quitting the tetracylcine...eek
  11. hmm anybody?:S if im not dryin out is this a sign its too little a dose... or do u not necessarily have to get rely dry skin to know its working? thnks!
  12. so...im on 25mg per day and i weigh 7 and a half stone...which if i remember rightly is about 47kg! anyway, ive been on for 2 weeks now and im rely happy to say that iv not had any bad side effcts rely so far...fingers crossed! my skin isnt dry,,,at all rely! and my lips have only felt a bit tight... anyway im jus wonderin is this considered a low dose?? im worried that cuz iv not had dry skin etc that my skin might not dry up and clear jus in other peoples opinion...shud i ask to get my dosage
