  1. I use the cetaphil moisturizer...but even so I just feel like I put it on at night...and wake up with more pimples.
  2. I have been breaking out pretty much since the day I started taking accutane. I've been on it for 1 month and 16 days...The first month I took 40 mg and now I'm taking 80. I dont know what to do here...I feel like when I moisturize I break out even more. I don't know what to put on my face at night or in the day to fight the breakouts. I asked my doctor but he wasnt much help. I would say my acne was mild to moderate but persistant, but now I feel like I have more pimples WITH accutane than I di
  3. I'm on day 22 and I'm noticing the lips and skin getting a little bit more dry but I'm still getting breakouts...What product would you guys recommend to apply to trouble areas? I'm breaking out on the one side of my face and I dont know what to do. I used to use BP and I used it a couple times while on accutane but some people say not to use it because it dries too much. Is there anything I can use that isnt to harsh but still clears it up? I've been using regular cetaphil facewash to wash my f
  4. I am 5'11" male 144 lbs and I'm trying to gain weight. By gain weight I don't mean eat everything in sight. I have a strict diet that includes 40% carbs 30% proteins and 30% fats. The fats that I eat are good fats. But my question is this...some people say they take it WITH high fat meals and others say that were told not to. I wasnt told anything so I'm just wondering what you guys think.
  5. I've been doing the acne.org regimen because I was doing that before I got this because I had to wait forever for insurance to clear so I wanted to at least try something to calm it down. Should I keep doing this routine? or should I just use moisturizer? Also, did you notice a big difference after a month?..did it help get rid of non cystic acne too?
  6. Should I be noticing dry skin like people are saying already? I havent had the need to moisturize or use chap stick and I'm on 40 mg per day. What do you guys think?
  7. I'm looking for a decent health insurance plan that will cover my derm visits and the blood tests I need to get during accutane treatment and also cover most of the cost of the drug. Anyone know a decent insurance that doesnt break the bank?
  8. Thanks so much for your reply...I'll let you know how things go!..Your treatment is working great.
  9. I'd like to is there anything I need to say to my dermatologist to make him take me seriously about going on accutane?
  10. Hello, this is my first post. I'm a 21 year old guy wondering if accutane is right for me. I wouldn't say I have SEVERE acne because I see people with worse BUT I do feel like it just keeps getting worse. When I was younger it started out as just a few pimples here and there in certain areas. Now it seems as the years go by I have fewer and fewer patches of "clear" skin. I have areas that have blackheads and whiteheads and I have fairly large pores on my nose making them visible. I have papules
