  1. If everybody was so fucking responsible, IPledge never would have came about. It was implemented because girls weren't fucking responsible enough to keep their legs closed, so, out came a mutant baby. Over and over and over. Christ, you fucking people really are small minded.
  2. No, I just did. This board sucks ass. Seriously. Every fucking week there's the same conversation and every fucking week you morons back up the other moron who thinks it's ok to defy the rules. Fuck all of you.
  3. I may as well just jump on the bandwagon - Do whatever you want! Don't take birth control and screw like monkeys. Who cares! You're responsible! You know what you're doing!
  4. It's necessary because you never know what tomorrow will bring. I checked the gal's profile and she admits and has posted that she is sexually active. It's not as though she's a virgin who's saving herself for marriage. If the ex boyfriend came back around tomorrow, like she'd been hoping he would, or whatever - there's a chance that she would become sexually active again. I think most of us can agree that in the heat of the moment with a passionate lover, our senses sometimes go out the window.
  5. Right, screw the rules. They're not necessary. It's not as though they're in place because there's a valid reason for them. Why don't we just forget all the rules and live in total chaos? If you don't think it's necessary, then it doesn't apply to you. @@
  6. But it really doesn't boil down to self control. If the manufacturers of this drug and the government thought it best to leave it in the hands of the users, IPledge - along with all it's rules and regulations - would not exist. What the hell has this world come to when people think it's ok to violate the rules and, in turn, condone violating the rules? VERY IMPORTANT rules, none the less. I'm not talking about taking too many breaks at work, or not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign at 2am
  7. Wynne, I have seen you making the comment, so sure that each "woman" is mature....many times when this comes up. You have such faith in people, which is a great thing...but let's not forget that IPledge was implimented for a reason. I only wish that I could be as optomistic as you are all the time - it is such a great trait to have - but we must not lose track of the reality, either. This person may or mat not be a responsible woman, but as I stated before, the rules are in place for a reason.
  8. The responsible thing to do would be to stay honest about your BC situation with your derm. You say that you're not sexually active, but nobody ever knows what tomorrow will bring, even if we think we're sure. IPledge was created because of girls just like you who didn't think it was a big deal to be on birth control while taking accutane. Now with IPledge implimented, it is people like you who will eventually have accutane pulled off the shelves and ruin it for people who are suffering with acn
  9. You don't HAVE to take it with a fatty food. Vitamin A is fat soluble, so it will get into your system quicker with fatty food, but you don't have to go overboard. Taking it with a boiled egg, an avacado or a piece of bread with butter would be sufficient. I have seen this discussed so many times. Being on accutane does not mean that you have to eat fried, greasy, fatty foods every meal of the day. That would be ridiculous. Just eat like you normally would and take the pills with meals.
  10. I prefer Purpose Gentile Cleanser just because Cetaphil burned my skin. For a moisturizer, I use DML Forte. You have to ask the pharmacist for it, because they keep it behind the counter - but you don't need a prescription. It is the absolute best moisturizer that I have ever used in my life.
  11. I'm not really familiar with the products, as Cetaphil burned the hell out of my skin when i tried to use it in month 1, but I would imagine if you're using it on your face, the word "facial" on the bottle probably it's a safe bet. Be sure to get the liquid wash in a bottle, though....the bar soaps can collect bacteria and whatnot while in the shower. Yuk.
  12. I did ONE 40mg pill a day for my first month, too. That seems to be the norm. Mostly, I think, because most generics don't come in a 20mg pill. Good luck!
  13. Accutane is a great drug that has improved the lives of many, many people but there are many many side effects and risk factors as well. Be educated on it, learn how to prevent some of the side effects, listen to your doctor and you'll be fine. If your doctor is prescribing it, you should trust that it is safe for you. A tip that will help you TONS: Start INTENSELY moisturizinf EVERYTHING now....face, body, hair, eyes, nasal cavities, lips....I mean...slop that moisturizer on! The more moistu
  14. Well, in that case, do whatever you have to to get on the tane. Stop doing the BP for a week before you go to the derm - whatever - just don't go there with clear skin. I have mostly struggled with these closed comedone things, too...and the tane is really taking care of them. Good luck.
  15. Jeez - didn't you read all the responses in your other post? 2 months in is way too early to make judgement on how this medication will affect you. You're only two months in! Don't spend your whole course stressing over wether or not it will work, wether or not you will STAY clear, etc. Don't you know that stress can make your acne worse? Please, please, please - just relax and see what happens. If in two months your skin isn't clear, that's something you can discuss with your dermatologist. He
  16. If your skin is clear, by your own admission, what would be the point in taking a potentially dangerous drug? It doesn't make any sense. Why take the risk of developing an even bigger problem (cracked and bleeding lips, nose bleeds, joint and muscle pain, constant headaches, fatigue, weakness, not being able to go in the sun, no hair coloring, no tanning, no tattoos....shall I go on???)........if your skin is already clear!?!?!?!?! I don't get it...
  17. I can not possibly say for sure, because I'm not finished with my course yet - however, it is very common to hear that people clear after they stop their treatment, even. Sometimes even 2-4 months after treatment stops, people are still seeing improvement. I'd say to be patient, see what happens in a few months and if you're not happy, talk to your derm. I mean, there's really nothing you can do about it now anyway. If your course is going to be over, it's going to be over and your body needs t
  18. My dermatologist told me up-front that this medication works differently on everyone. One person might see results in month one while another person won't see results until the last month of treatment - or even beyond. The average month that accutane patients generally see the most improvement is month 3. You're only at month two...and therefore, shouldn't be worrying. I had taken 2 months of accutane and didn't see a whole lot of permanent improvement - it was up and down up and down....then I
  19. It's all about cumulative dose. Not having your meds for one or two days is not going to make any difference at all. I got locked out of ipledge all together last month and missed a whole 30 days, but my skin never skipped a beat....the medicine just kept on working.
  20. You will probably get a ton of responses on here about what different things people used to help with their IB. Your best bet is to talk to your dermatologist. There is a plethera of medications out there for a reason - if the same medicine worked for everyone, there wouldn't be a need for all these different meds. Your doctor knows you, knows your skin, knows your medical history....what you've tried before, what group of meds might work best on your particular type of acne. Give your dermatoli
  21. So, I was on accutane for two months....40mg a day for the first month and 80mg a day for the second month. Then, partly due to procrastination, partly due to laziness and partly due to miscalculation, I missed the window to fill my third month's prescription and got locked out of ipledge. No accutane. I'm back now, though....5 days into my delayed 3rd month and my skin seems to be reacting more severely to the medication than it did the first time around. My skin is just peeling and peeling and
