  1. about 2 days? my eyes seem very tired, kind of sore as well. What i'm really afraid of is going blind, no joke. Maybe i'm paranoid, but I hope that is not the route i'm travelling. if this continues for a week or so i'll probably go see a doctor for sure. I'm on 20 mg for the first month (been about a week). I feel that my skin is improving already (i had a previous course of 60mg for my first month and i had horrible ib for about a span of 2 months, where the peak of it would last about
  2. I've been having some severe headaches. I don't know if i'm not getting good sleep (I work nights), but my headaches are pretty bad and its hard to stay in focus. I'm wondering if anyone else has headaches and if its just a normal effect of accutane.
  3. Is accutane and the like only come in gel capsule? My first course was (I think), but I'm just wondering since when I used to take vitamin a, it only came in gel capsules too. Could isotretinoin and/or vitamin a come in tablets (like vitamin c)?
  4. that's very true, although if I were to found a reputable site, I figure the drugs I am getting is what I am getting. hopefully someone that has used an online store can give me some insight.
  5. I've heard medsforless.com is a good option, I was wondering if anyone has experience with this specific site (any medicine, not just accutane). Since buying online results in shipping, would it be ok if I was off accutane for a week or so every month? I don't think I can get the accutane shipped fast enough after I finish off my last dose, even if I can go to the dermatologist after 21(?) days after my last visit.
  6. Unfortunately, I need to start on my second course. It's been more than a year, and my acne has decreased greatly, but it's still persistent. This time around, I do not have insurance, so paying $700-1400 for a month's dose is not in my budget. I looked at www.CanadaDrugsOnline.com, and it's pretty cheap. Apparently I can get more than a month's dose at a time? This would be great since I would be out of the country for couple months. I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with
  7. for the most part, when i wake up and when i go to sleep. But honestly, I think spinich (rich in vitamin A) has a LOT to do with it. I've skipped out on ACV and it seems to be ok, but when i skip out on spinach, my skin starts to break the following day or two.
  8. I'm going to make this short and sweet: Male 21, I have been suffering from cystic acne since 14-15. Tried all the topical stuff and medication, 40mg of accutane for 6 months. The accutane worked, but my acne came back within 3 months. Solution: 2 spoonful of acv in water twice a day and loaded up on spinach. Amazing this worked and I have been on this regimen for a good 3 months. I read somewhere that accutane is like vitamin a except a few molecules, so I gave it a shot. Pretty much
  9. I'm 2 months post accutane, and it's really hard for me to decide if my scars got better or not. The problem is I have some brown marks that I'm worried about. But like how I was on accutane, I'm just gonna let it run its after course and then decide to panic or be thankful.
  10. I'm almost done with accutane, and it's been pretty good. 150lb 5'8" male with acne, I went on 40mg of claravis and am 20 pills away from being done. I've been taking 10+ pics of myself every week from different angles, and it's really fun to look at. Accutane sure does work. Of course, I've been getting lazy and stopped taking the pics for this month, since I'm pretty satisfied with the course. I had really bad IB, but I knew what accutane can do so I wasn't too scared. Here's some pics:
  11. I'm at my second month, and the dryness has completely stopped. I don't have to put on moisterizer anymore and I hardly put on carmex (licking my lips every so often works). My skin and lips were sooo dry the first month, so I'm a bit suprised. I did get reduced to 40mg from 60mg (I weight 150lb) so I'm a little worried that accutane might not be as effective.
  12. You MUST have the Accutane by the 7th day (for example, you get your prescription on Monday, you better have Accutane by Sunday). If you don't, then you HAVE to go to the dermatologist and get another checkup. That, for me, is a waste of $30 of insurance co-pay. Since my dermatologist is not really efficient (forgetting to put my name on the FUCKEN prescription and not calling back the pharmacy until 4 days later, by which he still hasn't updated iPledge), I normally have to get my prescri
