  1. Hi guys I have had two goes at Accutane, both on very low does (20mg a day max) and for no longer than 2 months at a time. The first time I went on Accutane I was on 20mg a day and I couldn't cope with the side effects so I had to come off. The next time I tried a very low dose (5mg a day) to see if I could tolerate it better, however this was not the case and I had to give up after about a month because I was getting severe blushing everyday. Once I stopped Accutane the blushing has gradually
  2. Hi guys I have been on Spiro (100mg a day) for about 3 weeks now and it doesn't seem to have made any difference. My skin is still quite oily and my pores look bigger than ever!! I am so depressed. After all the great reviews I read on here I thought it would really work for me as it seems to for so many people. Everyone said that they have experienced much less oil, smoother skin etc. However I don't seem to be experiencing any of these things. Can someone tell me when you start to see resul
  3. Hi guys I have been taking Dianette on and off for about 4 years now. At the beggining Dianette gave me flawless skin for about 3 years - it was amazing I felt so great, I would get compliments about my skin all the time and my hair was thick and glossy. But unfortunately I came off it for a while and my skin went majorly down hill, I visited my GP and he put me back on Dianette but it just doesn't seem to have had the same effect this time which is really puzzling me. I have visited my GP end
  4. Possibly. The thing is I am also taking Androcur which is pure Cyperatone Acetate and this still doesn't seem to do the trick either. Do you think it's impossible for me to balance my hormones ever again? do you recommend anything that I can talk to my derm about? x
  5. Hi guys I was on Dianette for 4 years and for those 4 years I had absolutely flawless skin. It was like a miracle pill as it made my skin glow, my hair glossy and my skin was matte all day (Bliss!!!). My GP said that it was the Cyperatone Acetate in Dianette that was doing all the magic so I just assumed that as long as I kept taking it that it would work - I seem to be wrong. About a year ago I decided to take a break from Dianette (as they say you shouldn't be on it for too long) and my skin
  6. Thanks for your support guys, I really appreciate it. The most annoying thing is that only a year ago I had the most flawless skin imaginable. When I visited my GP he told me that it was the Cyperatone Acetate in Dianette that was doing all the magic, so I stayed on it for about 4 years and for those 4 years I had the most beautiful skin, even strangers would compliment me. Then I decided to come off Dianette (because you are not supposed to be on it for too long) and I suddenly broke out in sp
  7. Thanks Mellieh, that has made me feel a bit more relaxed about it. Do you know if I will have to have a blood test on my first visit? because I have a serious needle phobia! x
  8. Hi guys Although I only have very mild acne my skin has been getting me down for some time and after many GP visits he has reffered me to a derm through the NHS. The thing is I am really worried because my sister told me that Derms don't really want to know unless your skin is affecting your health or is really serious. Although I only have very mild ance my skin is oily and my pores look so large that my skin looks all bumpy and rough. Can anyone tell me what to expect from my visit? Will

  11. Hi guys I have been taking Dianette for about 6 years on and off. When I originally started taking Dianette my skin was beautiful, I mean flawless! I would even get compliments from strangers about my skin which made me feel amazing and gave me more confidence. My skin was like this for about 4 years until one day after religiously taking it I forgot to take it for about 2 nights and my period started. Anyway, as I had recently split from my boyfriend and my GP told me it was not good to be on
  12. hi! did you stop taking the spiro? i have been on it for about a month and have not seen improvement...was this the same case with you?

    1. Hi guys Sadly, I have had to quit Accutane as it was not agreeing with me. Accutane made my nose very swollen when I was on 40mg a day, so my derm decided to lower my dose to 10mg, However even though I lowered my dose my nose was still a little swollen (but less so). My derm has suggested coming off Accutane as he says that I am too sensitive to it and he is frightened that it may cause Rosacea. My derm has suggested that I have a break and then start Spiro to help with the oily skin. I am j
