    Blood test: before or after??

    Yes you should really get them done before you start the drug or at the very beginning. That way when they get the results it is easy for them to see any abnormalities or problems that are being caused by the accutane as you get further blood tests done. They test your kidney, liver (important one) and some other stuff I can't remember - a general blood count I think. I asked to look at my results at the end of my course to see if I could spy any liver damage - it looked a bit different if
  2. Yes unfortunately accutane is like russian roulette and you can never predict the outcome for each individual. However nowadays we are well informed of the potential consequences. You do not take the drug without knowing the risks and asking yourself can you deal with them? Johnny199r you said life was a million times worse for you on the drug than when you just had acne - it seems to me you have already made your choice and I would advise you do not go back on accutane. As for David Chow I

      Eating chocolate without getting acne

      The consequences of purging are NOT worth it. It is NOT healthy and it certainly isn't fun or glamorous. Don't do it. Unless you want decayed teeth, swollen painful neck glands, an irritable stomach, scarred knuckles and guess what...bad skin. To name only a few of the physicals. Just eat the darn chocolate. Maybe just once a week or something small everyday instead. (Or every hour if you are pmsing.) Cut it altogether and you'll crave it more, i'm sure you're aware. Just please don't start a

      Well, it all depends on my mood tbh....a face and life destroyed by acne has caused me to seek happiness in an addiction to sugar! I had always tried to be healthy before accutane just because I knew a poor diet would not help my skin. So when I went on accutane and saw it was working I sort of saw this as an excuse to consume sugr and diet drinks and caffeine without fear! (To be fair I only have 1-2 cans a day now cos I feel better on the water!) But I've always had healthy phases and day
    3. My lips were EXACTLY like this. I knew it was a side effect and I had read for years people's experiences of it...but you can not appreciate the pain, horror and sheer embarrassment of it until you experience for yourself. Some days I would actualy skip my accutane because they got so bad and I just needed some (very) temporary respite from it. I had started a new job at the start of my accutane journey. I can not but think the impression I have left there of myself. I finished the job before
    4. Howdy everybody! Has anybody here had a tattoo after accutane? If so then cool what did you get! I mean really, how long did you wait and how did it go? Any reactions or abnormalities/problems with healing and was the final result okay? I finished tane about 4 months ago and in another month I would really like to get another (I just have one, a star on my wrist) I just want Liam's name (Jodiat on here) on my wrist....or maybe something on my ankle but either ways it's gonna be small. I'm n
    5. Aw thanks necromancer although I have to give some credit to make up and distance for that lol!
    6. Can only comment on the alcohol.... I haven't had a drop of alcohol in 3 years nearly but it's not like that fact cured my acne. My skin always looks *** anyway the day after drinking; clear or not. I don't think either is good for acne. Maybe look for a new high? I personally like exercise and some bedroom gymnastics a la shakira.

      Positive Accutane Experiences

      Hello hello! Well it has been a while since I haunted the org but I wanted to come back and share my experience.... About a year ago i started - most predictably - to break out pretty badly again. For almost a decade I had struggled with acne and had been on endless antibiotics, used every otc product going, as well all the prescription creams, gels etc numerous times. And still the return of my acne was as certain as death and taxes. I got offered accutane at 17 and I wish to GOD I had don

          1. It is. I posted some info on strengthening the liver from Dr. Lam's site on one of the other DIM threads. But it's the same things (Foods, supplements) we keep reading and discussing in all kinds of threads. I think the thing to do is get real serious about eating plenty of all the sulfur, DIM and CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE containing foods: cruciferous veggies, spinach, apples, etc. Im with you on this for sure. Anything to help phase 2 is going to be needed while using anything that alters Es
