  1. So, I am getting really frusterated. I'm 21, been getting acne since I was about 13. I finished my 4th (that's right... 4th) round of Accutane in October and I am ALREADY starting to break out! I just don't know if I can go through having acne again.. because I tend to get really depressed. What should I be doing differently? I've tried practically everything, but right now this is my regimen: Morning: Aveda all-sensitive cleanser Aveda all-sensitive toner A moisterizer that my derm gave me Nig
  2. This is my fourth time on accutane, and this time my eyes have become extremely dry in the past week or two. Is there anything I can to to help this?? other than eye drops (which I use like 5-8 times a day). Today I was at work and someone asked me if I was seriously on drugs because my eyes were so read, and another girl asked me if I was wearing red eye liner. I know they don't mean to hurt my feelings, but it's THAT bad. I also find that my eyes get crusted shut in the morning. I am prety sur

  4. The first two times it came back it wasn't quite as severe, but my derm wanted to put me on it again. Now after the 3rd time my acne is back to being pretty bad, but it took about a year and a half to start getting bad again. I can't wait to have clear skin again! hopefully your cholesterol doesn't pose a problem for you. good luck!
  5. When someone comments on your acne it definatly sucks! One time when I was in junior high and my skin was starting to get pretty bad. I was in my computer class, and the teacher was taking pictures of everybody without them knowing it with his digital camera. for fun, he just so happened to put my picture on the T.V. screen. A couple of kids said something along the lines of "look at all of those zits!" It was sooo embarrassing! Ahh, the joys of adolescence.
  6. Good luck Mfg! I hope this is the last time for you. I know that Accutane is such an annoying process, but it pays off in the end! and I can definately relate, I am going to be going on Accutane for a 4th time next week. Can't wait to see some updates!
  7. I just ordered some EDM yesterday! I hope it comes quick, because I am excited to give it a try! I live in Seattle, so it shouldn't be too long I hope..
  8. good luck!! I am sure it'll look great. I love getting my hair done, I think it's soo relaxing!
  9. I have always had pretty moderate to semi-bad acne. But I have just started getting really big ones (maybe cysts?) the past 6 months. I have one on my chin that has been there for at least a week and a half and has not gone away? Is it normal to last that long? It also feels like it is more under the skin. It hurt when I first got it, but now it is just a big red bump! Should I try to pop it? and if so, what is the best way to pop it? Sorry, if this is a gross question, but I figured I could ta
  10. I keep hearing people refer to IB, what does that mean?
  11. well, I have been on Accutane 3 times, and my side effects varied from time to time. The first time I was on it my back hurt so back I felt like an old woman, but it wasn't as bad the second time around. Then the 3rd time I noticed that my hair and lips got REALLY dry. So, I didn't really see any correlation with the side effects. Maybe someone else had a different experience though?
  12. Hey all, I am going on a 4th round of Accutane starting next Tuesday! I am so excited! I am curious though, if I have been on it so many times before, will 40mg be enough to clear me up for good this time? I want this to be the last time on Accutane! All of the 3 other times I have been on 40mg for 5 months, and the acne came back all the time, and this time it came back with a vengence. I get big red pimples and whiteheads all along my jawline and chin! I have an appointment with my derm in a
  13. evenstar: How can I go about knowing which deficiancy I have or what type of problem it is? I have tried going off of dairy products and that didn't work, and I am not on birth control pills....
