  1. When i went for my 6 week checkup the derm was v.impressed and said hopefully ill stay clear once i finish accutane... so im sorta hopefully she'll b right!!
  2. Hey people, I have just over 1 month of a four month accutane course left. i took 20mg for the first 6 weeks and am on 40mg for the remainder of the course.I had mild (moderate) acne.I am now almost 100% clear. Just wanted some advice off people who have finished accutane.I really want to stay clear and want any advice, tips or warnings off people who have experience of this! Thanks in advance people.
  3. jayc wondered how u went on with those vitamin a stuff. i am almost 100% clear with 1 month of accutane left. i have the odd few red marks and would like to get rid of these quicker if i could!
  4. just thought i wud tell you my opinion! i am on accutane with about 1 month to go i am on 40mg a day.I am now about 95% clear and it makes me want to go out all the time!! i have the same problem where i am constantly thinkin should i drink alcohol etc. earlier on in the course i drank rarely maybe once a week if that and tried not to go over the top. last week i drank wed, fri and sat at least about 5 pints each nite.all i would say is that you get drunk really quick and you WILL feel like shit
  5. well im now on day 42 (6 weeks done)!! i have been on 30mg a day and things have been going very well! i visited the derm today and she said that i had really improved and was very impressed! i really am getting there now its great! she has up my dose to 40mg a day which i will be on now for 10 weeks and that should hopefully be my accutane experience over with. she is hoping that will be it and i will remain totally clear after that. so i will hopefully be on it 4 months in total! at the mom
  6. i totally agree i think drinking is ok as long as you dont go crazy..... it says avoid it not totally stop! ive bin on accuatane 6 weeks and over that period ive drank once a week (where ive had a few but not gone over board). this weekend ive drank fri, sat and sun but ive not got hammered just had around 6 drinks on fri and sat and about 3 drinks last nite. ive been fine so i think you've just gotta be careful thats all. now i wont drink till next weekend.
  7. wondered if anyone has experience of going in sauna's or steam rooms while on accutane. i have been on it a month now and am almost 100% clear. i hav recently joined a gym and am not sure whether to use the steam room etc..... i am going to ask my derm about this but my appointment isnt for 2 weeks so wondered if anyone could help me?? cheers
  8. i have drank about once a week while i have been on accutane.... and been on it a month..... i am almost totally clear! so drinking alcohol hasnt effected me.... only effects is that i think it has made me a little dehydrated but its not been a problem at all. all ive found is that being on accutane makes you get drunk quicker. i certainly wouldnt drink all the time while on accutane but to drink every now and again is fine. in the instructions it says avoid alcohol it doesnt say dont take it at
  9. god feel sorry for you guys. i live in the uk..... and its much cheaper. my blood tests and derm appointments are free. all you have to pay is about £6 per pescription. so i paid something like £6 for 2 months supply of accutane.
  10. ok im on my 6th day of accutane.i have noticed no side effects whatsoever (touch wood)! cant believe it ive not got dry skin or dry lips or dry eyes.i have very oily skin so i have noticed that it is not as oily and my skin is dryer but not to the point where i need to use moisturiser.i have noticed a slight improvement in my skin already. i am on 30mg a day which i will be taking for 2 months. Ive seen the list of side effects and basically i am just waiting for something to go wrong....... but
