  2. Hi guys! I am almost done my 6month course and during the last 2 months I have been having REALLY REALLY bad IBS....I have tons of water, fibre..healthy diet...but it doesnt help. Fibre actually makes it worse. I finally discovered (by accident) something called WHITE TEA...its bascially like green tea but alot more antioxidant.... The first time I had it, I had to run to the washroom...I didnt even know it was the tea..but after having it 10x I realized a pattern...try to have a VERY STRO

  7. Like I said im 1/2 way through month 3 and im on a relatively high dose for my weight (135). Im not even putting on moisturizer (according to my derm i shouldnt wear any!).........my face is not peeling!! i feel like the med isnt working...maybe this has to do with the fact that i dont ingest it with a fatty meal? also what do u guys think about NOT moisturizing while on 'tane?? doesnt seem right to me..at all.....i mean its winter, and i should be protecting my skin... any advice/opinions

  11. DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT Go on TAZORAC!!!!!!!!!!!1 please It was the worst mistake, the worst thing I have ever put on my skin...........i was on it for 1 month (or 1 and 1/2)...........I went to the TOP dermatologist here in Montreal, VERY well known in the city,,, and he told me he has never presribed this stuff!! that should tell u something. i wish I would have consulted with HIM before going on this shit! my advice is try something else but not this!
