  1. i'm going thru the same thing. no actual bloody nose where i have to pinch the nose to make it stop, but actual blood dried up on the inside and stuff... i just deal with it -- there isn't much u can do
  2. it's been 3 months for me and i still get acne every so often... it's different for anyone.
  3. 1/11/2007 - Day 83 I have a couple of early scars from acne that appeared and then left by scabbing/popping and falling off.... so that blows. Hopefully I won't be all scar faced when this is all done. Blergh.
  4. 12/20/2006 - Day 61 12/28/2006 - Day 69
  5. thanks for the support!! i wish you the best of luck with everything!
  6. ahh so i had my first derm appt since taking accutane and she is doubling my medication, from 20mg to 40mg/day. i'll be taking a 20mg pill twice a day. since the side effects of my initial dosage were not bad at all, i just hope that i won't be drying and breaking out left and right with double the dosage. ill still be taking my vitamin E, fish oil, and others, so i am optimistic it won't be that much worse. the ultimate goal, she says, is for me to take 60mg/day. my derm is going to florid

  8. 11/25/2006 - Day 37 12/02/2006 - Day 43 I'm going to my first appointment since starting tane on Wednesday. I haven't taken any meds in a few weeks, so I really can't wait to get back on the regime!
  9. i got the Omega 3 Fish Oil made by Spring Valley (400 softgels) and the EPA and the DHA is 180mg and 120mg, respectively. at this moment i think i will take it during breakfast and dinner and then see how my next blood work goes. ill be seeing the derm wednesday for the first time since starting tane.
  10. so i got some omega 3 fish oil stuff, 1000mg, made by Spring Valley. i think i'll take 2 a day.
  11. yes i did. i fasted for 12 hours. in fact, i have been drinking soda now that i am back on the day shift. ill stick with water. ahh yes, from wikipedia, a source for everything...
  12. so i got blood work done for the first time since i started taking the tane, and i just recently got the results. i believe the derm monitors the triglyceride level, and here is what i found. my very first blood work before tane, the level was 51. the level after taking tane for 30 days was 122. 122 is still in the normal range, and 150-199 is considered borderline. should i start taking some med like fish oil to improve the count for next time? i haven't taken tane in at least 2 weeks sinc
  13. my generic cost me $5 for a 30-day script. if i were to pay retail, it'd be $290 and change.
  14. I take 400 UI Vitamin E and Glucosamine Chondroitin once a day. I'm only on Day 29, so once the blood work results come back, then maybe I will take the fish oil to improve the lipids, if necessary.
  15. 11/16/2006 - Day 28 So since my derm appointment was changed to December 6, my blood work is next week also. The derm said that the blood work should be done a week before the appointment, so that's why I changed it. I've had this bump at the side of the bridge of my nose for a long time and I hope it goes down soon! UUGHHHH it sucks! I have a couple other zits popping up -- nothing out of the ordinary there. I guess the drugs are working. Today I started my new job (via promotion), so tha
