  1. Does anyone have experience taking Accutane and B5 at the same time? I have to lower my Accutane doze to 10mg, which means it will take 3 years to complete the treatment and progress wont be noticable anytime soon. B5 seems to work fine with me, but again it's a temporary fix. Once I am off of it, I get oily skin and breakouts again.

Has anyone taked steroid for a short term before? any side effects/any thoughts? My derm says I can only stay on it for a week. So I am planning to take it once the break
  5. My blood work just came back and my liver fuction levels were high (44 for AST/SGOT and 94 for ALT/SGPT), so my doctor told me to stop taking accutane until my next blood work, which is in 2 weeks. That just ruins my weekend!!! I cant imagine having to go thru more breakouts for the next two weeks, now that after being on the painful treatment for last 6 weeks my medication begins to show a noticable progress. I think I have enough evidence to say that accutane is the sole contributor to my high
