  16. I am on accutane since 4 month and a haft and my doctor want me to continue for 3 weeks. The problem is, I am going in vacation under the sun of Cuba with my girlfriend really soon. There is not much to do there exept tanning on the beach and I am soooo scrared I will take a bad sunburn that i almost want to cancel my trip. The doctor said I could stop like 1-2 day before Cuba and start again for 2 weeks after. He said that it would not make a difference anyway if I stop a week or a day before
  17. first 3 month 60mg/day now 1 month and a week at 40mg/day I get these since about the 3rd month...they are not flat, they become big and itchy sometimes and can leave an hour later..I think it's called "urticaria"..i'm 125lbs
  18. Hi Is it normal that almost everyday I get one of these "spot" or bump" that is NOT a acne at all. It is so itchy and appeared in like a minute for no reason. It becomes really itchy and sometime as big as a cyst and all red around it....the day after there is often nothing left. Is is a accutane effect..anyone else got this ? does it leave after accutane ?
  19. I did ask my doctor and there was no problem..just make sure you don't take over 5g of creatine/per day and drink plenty of water.....if you take over 5g a day you will pissed the rest anyway and may damage your liver
  20. Ok guys, I doN't like to do thread like this but I need help calculating my dosage compared to "recommended dosage". I started on October 13th 2006 with 40mg one day and 80mg the next day until december 28th where i stoped for 10 days because of extreme facial exzema Then I started again on January 6th 2007 with 40mg everyday I am stopping February 23th 2006 does it seem good if you know I weight around 125lbs ??
  21. why do such a thing ? do you prefer to have a fake nice looking body for short term or a clear face forever ? + if you have some money to throw for steroids, why not take a body building trainer and and then build a real body ?
  22. I guys, I am about to finish my accutane treatment and I was woundering when I sould stop exactly because of sun exposure coming up I am leaving on March 3rd so should I stop like 7 or 10 days before ? Also what kind of protection should I put on my skin for the week of sun exposure ? Last thing, about how long does it take for the dryness of lips, skin, eyes to go away after the treatment ?
