  1. that's great to hear. careful on the drinking of course it doesn't effect everyone but as long as you feel healthy that's what matters. For the redness i use aveeno ultra calming cleanser and moisturizer, it's for redness it works pretty good
  2. i just finished my 4th mth and i would have flares before a certain time of the month and horrible cysts but for the first time i didn't have any this month.... It may be the same for you or at least i hope so. So i didn't see any changes till the end of the 4th month
  3. Wow! That makes up my mind- not taking Alli. Or any other diet pill right now, for that matter. I don't want to risk screwing up my blood work and the possibility of going off Accutane! On another note, does anyone have any advice for what to do for initial break outs? I am having a horrible one right now... But thhe skin on my face where I am not broken out is extremely dry, so I don't know what to do! Steroids??? For the initial break out? BUMP!

  5. But if my body would contain less fat due to Alli, wouldn't that (in theory) make the accutane work faster? Wouldn't it make the accutane a much higher dose than originally needed? I believe that along with diet and exercise, they can be fairly effective. I would never just pop diet pills and expect a miracle. (After all, it's not Accutane!) lol.
  6. i was just wondering if anyone has changed there dosage every month. For example i'm on my third month and i started at 40mg, then my second month i went to 60mg and now on my third i'm on 80mg. I told my derm that i wanted to finish in 5 instead of six months and we're going to see what we can do. So i was just wondering what some people experiences were. Also what's with this take with fatty meals deal?? Is salad with avacado fatty?? lol i know sounds dumb but avacado is a fat?? lol
  7. i'm on steriods for a week everytime i start a new everytime i start a new pack of accutane to minimize my reaction. You should talk to your derm about it. When I started and 40mg i had a bad reaction or the regular but bad reaction. Then my derm told me it was ok to get the dirt out but she didnt want it to scar me so this would be best so when i was put on 60 mg the first week i took it and my skin was wonderful. I just started on 80mg and no breaks (keeping my fingers crossed) i'm on

  9. I was at 63-64 kilos when i started accutane and since gone down to 60-61 kilos my derm told me to be really careful cuz she wouldn't be able to up my dosage if i kept losing weight. She was like especially with summer like as if i was trying to lose wieght but i'm not... That's just what my derm told me
  10. I don't really see your point? Of course people are gonna pay to cure themselves from a disease if they can. People are not vain for doing this. People just want to look normal.
  11. Either way it goes we all want one thing.... clear skin and at this point we would pay whatever it takes to get there. Which is why we do spend our money doing this... The price of being vien or wanting to look better. People get plastic surgery some people just take pills but we spend a lot and expect a lot. I hope that they do make their money obviously taking advantage of people isn't what i want but it's like saying you say you found something that may help us. I only want to pay $80 and
