  1. i have been on amnesteem for 30 days and i started out on two 20 mg pills a day to equal a total of 40mg a day and the oil didnt stop till around day 20 but it didnt stop compltely and im just a little worried cus now im on day thirty and i was switched to just one pill of 40 mg a day and it seems that my oil is comming back not badddddd but it jsut seems like its a little bit more excessive then it should be for me being on accutane and thhat im only on day 30.

    and also why would my derm put me on one pill of 40 mg a day from two 20 mg pills a day what was the point of that?

  2. thats probably not oily skin it might be ur moisturizer from the night before that u didnt get completly off in the shower maybe u need to change moistorizer or find one thats not as thick or dont put on as much i had the same problem just a little thought not saying that is ur problem tho but it might help

  3. i just have a few questions that ik i should of asked my derm while i was in there but when you wait 2 years to get this stuff and you get the chance you just cant think right but...

    is the accutane taking two times a day cus she didnt say anything about how many times and im shure it will say on my perscritpion sheet when i go pick it up from the pharmacy but if anyone can tell me how many times you take it thatd be great.

    and also my derm started me out on a 20mg dose for the first month she said that was a half dose cus thats what most derms do is start ther patients on half and i weigh 140 lb soo does that sound right?

    and when does the oil usally stop or decrease?

  4. i am getting accutane tomrrow if my blood test is good but i was jw how bad my ib is going to be considering i havent used topicals on my face in at least three months but i havent really had any new breakouts so im thinking that my ib wont be as bad but i could also be wrong. and another thing when u go for your first blood test to get on accutane and ur triglicerides are high will the dermstill prescribe the accutane to you cus i thought the blood test was just to see if accutaen is elevating ur triglicerieds

  5. i am going on accutane in 20 days and i am worried cus my face cleared up a tad and i have 5 pimpls and rest red marks and huge pores and am an oil slick but im afraid im actually growoing out of acne so should i actually still want to go on tane cus ive heard of people with like one zit want to go on it just so there skin will end up looking flawless and perfect like can someone actually please tell me will my skin look like fantastic after i take accutane will my pores reduce in size or appearnce will the oil be gonee will i have an even complexion basicly im just scared about going on it cus i really do think im growiong out of acne and im not so shure i should go on it

  6. i went to my derm last week and we started talking about accutane and she said well nothing has worked for you so i might as well prescribe it to you cus i had just got done with a series of glycolic acid peels with no clearing of acne and right now i can get a prescription of accutane but the question is do i want it or will it even help me cus i have more redmarks then acne i prob have around 8 active pimples but with a boatload of post inflamatory marks and insanely oily skin so my question is will taking accutane clear those redmarks and shrink my pores or make them look smaller and clear my acne ?

  7. or atleast i will be getting it if my blood work is ok but im just curious as to how much ill actually benefit from it considering i dont have cystic acne just persistant acne and oily skin that is just horrible and post inflamatory acne and my derm said that would clear up while on accutane and i was just wondering is that true?

  8. i went in yesterday for my peels from my estatichan and she was talking to me about accutane and all the problems with it and then went on to say about this new laser she has and how it works almost the same as accutane but its not AS effective. she called it the cynneron i think thats how its spelt but does anyone else have more information on it

  9. i have never used soap before in washing my face and instead of using a washcloth to always clean my face i was wondering if or waht kind of soap bar would be good for me i have extreamly oily skin and acne and redmarks i was just wondering if any of the cetaphil bars of soaps or any soap at all would help me by clearing up my facial redness or getting rid of all the gunk in my pores and preveting newbreak outs so if anyone can tell me what type of cetaphil bar soap to use on my face or any other kind of bar of soap that is good for getting all the stuff off ur facee

  10. pleaseee tell me what i should say to my derm or my gp to get accutane i have been on duac tazorac differin plexion benzaclin retin a micro doryx and a series of glycolic acid peels recoomendd by the dermatologist idk what else to try and i have an appt to see my derm march 20 and a appt to see my gp feb 12 idk if i should bring it up to my gp or waht cus everytime im in there we talk about my acne but she doesnt do much cus im seeing a derm and i was just wondierng what i should do cus ihave verry persistant acne that doesnt go away with alot of redmarks and oily skin that is soo oily i have 30 mins from when i was my face to were its just oozing out oil and ik thats not normal soo i was jw some things i should say to my derm and my gp about getting me on accutane cus im soo sick of looking red and oily and shiny and disquisting every day of my life

  11. can someone pleasee answer me my question is it ok or normal for people to take a wash cloth and get it wet and go clock wise or any motion on ur face very gently to get off all the oil and dead skin off or should i not be doing that cus i just started it uesterday and i dont want to irritate my skin more soo what do you guys think is it ok to do that and im not using soap im just using a washcloth and gently rubbing it on my face getting all the crap off

  12. i would like to know of everything i should eat or drink from what vitamins i should be taken to what kind of juices or drinks i should be making from carrot jucie to anything what should i be taking since idk im asking you guys what vitamin supplements i should take and drinks i should make and food i should prepare im going to be sticking to a healthy diet of vitamin supplemnts and things like that i just would really like i know what i need for this new diet

  13. i wouldn tmoisturize if my face wasnt flaky but everytime i get out of the shower its flaky and it doesnt make since cus i havent used topicals there in a year so im like wtff i would deff stop moisturizing but i look like an idoit when ive got flakes on my face idk how to get rid of it not unless just not moisturizing for a couple of days and my skin might just take care of its self

  14. why is it everytime i get out of the shower my face is always dry on both sides of my jaw even tho i use cetaphil moisturizer alott the night before i could use the whole thing and both sides of my jaw or face are always dry and flaky but my skin iss sooo oily extreamly oily like 30 mins after i take a shower my face is oozing out the oil it just doesnt make since on why my face is dry and flaky after my shower considering how much i moisturize. should i consider using less moisturiser or should i think about buying a new one or what any help is greatly appreciated

  15. well for me i was taking to long of showers but ur not in the shower long soo thats not it and for moisturizer i use the cetaphil and it works fine to get rid of flakiness .

    basicly to stop the dryness moisturize and use ur topical procuts less then you are now as for the scars i have no idea

  16. i had recently been getting high blood pressure and for my age that is not normal so i went to a dr and they ran all these test on me and found out that i might have a narrowing of a canal or somthing in my kidneys wich can raise ur blood pressure and also increase hormones in ur body becus the kidney is not getting enough blood it produces more hormones so im just thinking after they fix this if my oily ass skin will become more normal the dr wasnt speciefic on what hormones so im just assuming cus my skin had been getting abnormally oily this past year i never had a problem with oily ness untill about a year ago and i have thirty mins after i get out of the shower untill my face is oily and ik thats not normal so im thinking that this might be the reason why i have such oily skin but i could be wrong/
