  1. hi! so i just started accutane.. my acne was pretty severe.. but its really funny because after taking trivora for 2 months for my accutane birth control purpose (the iPledge system requirement) I my acne got a bit better but i still have bad rolling scars and pits and every thing :[ anyway, i JUST took my very first pill 2 hours ago I am 22 years old, japanese (so asian skin typing), 102 pounds starting off with 60 mg (40 mg night and 20 mg) during the day umm and attached are some sad p
  2. wow wow almost 1 year later I am back. I have to be honest, the past 9 months were the best skin years of my life. I never felt so carefree ... and i actually felt like a normal human being without makeup. Unfortuenlty, all good things come to an end.... it's coming back. I don't get much cystics. however mainly just pimples that have a head.. it started out with like 1 or 2 a week then now it's every freaking day again. not as bad as before but definitely a "dermatologist worthy" probl
  3. hi! good luck with your course! I'm sure you will not regret accutane! i decided against med school because i'm just being practical for my own personal life goals. As a female I don't think i'm up for the whole schooling and residency thing. I'll be over 30 by the time i can open practice. I know for others this is what they want. but as each year passes, I come to my own realizations... about when i want to start a fam, have kids, etc. I've shadowed female residents in the past and they
  4. @Jimmywooo yeah i still have pretty dry eyes. i still have them now, but i;m still able to wear contacts... i wear them about every other day for about 6 hours each. and to be on the safe side, i bring some rewetting drops. it's not too bad (like i'm not in pain or anything) but it's definitely not as comfortable as i would like i hope this will lessen later on however!!
  5. loll... jimmy 188... i want to "hold tounge" too sigh.... You will be fine. i studied and took the MCAT and GRE THROUGH my period of taking accutane. ( yess i had a change in career path) nevertheless, I did very well on both and was recently accepted to 3 top 10 Universities for graduate programs and will be going to one. From my own experience, I don' think accutane will obstruct your pathway to obtaining your undergrad college degree
  6. @cherington - aww thank youu!! hahha I'm 23 now good luck with you course I love reading your updates as well WEEK: I HAVE NO IDEA BUT IM DONEE! I'm 1 month off accutane, and I just came back from teh dermo. I"M DONE!!!! as in, I didn't need to make another appointment anymore the nurses all said: Congrats! So it was kind of cool Turns out the doctor went to the medical school of the same university I'm going to this fall for my graduate school degree! I wish I had known sooner... could ha

    ahh i totally knw what you mean!!! everytime i talk to a cute guy theres a voice in the back of my head saying "hes looking at your skin... hesss loookiinggg at your gross skinnn" -____- it suckssss and I don't care to dress too pretty or soemthing because I feel people will be thinking in their head "whats that girl to do.. shes trying to dress fashionably but it doesnt hide the fact that her skin is crappy" I know.. this is horrible thinking -__- but yeah, I REALLY need to alter my minds

    Oratane 20mg Log

    Great Improvement!! =) we have similar skin typing so it's fun to follow your progress too! I got about 2 IB's as well.. and I think my second IB was about the same time as you so thats normal emotions are def weird. I was applying to graduate school at the time and I would Bawl after sending in each application in fear I wouldn't get in ..... yeahh totally weird HAHA and unlike myself -___- ... I rarely cry (pre accutane). LOL

  15. week 11 wow.. so fast, I cant believe its already dec 30. The next time I post here it will be 2011. Since I feel not many people read this thread anyway, I'll also take this opportunity to also talk about some things that don't completely relate to my skin. alot of things have happened this year 2010.... I graduated from a well known university GAMBLED at a casino for teh first time began accutane Went to Europe for the first time in my LIFE!!! received an interview for a "REAL" full-time j
  16. Week 10 skin is OK. not very happy because a lady told me I had premature wrinkles. wtf. she told my my skin typing is dry and I should put on more lotion because I already have premature wrinkles. um.. she doesn't know I'm taking accutane. anyway i have horrible scars underneath lighting. progress is not so good. ugh i'm never gonna look pretty without makeup my dents are SO UGLY and my face is pretty gross. i can't wait till im done with this and when i earn enough money i can like resurf
  17. week 9 hey guys here is week 9's updates i had a bit of a breakout last week so got some new cystics on one side, but they are calming down now on a side note... is it just my thread or did acne.org decrease their picture upload size recently? I've been having a hard time uploading my pictures and it keeps saying that my file is way too big (even though in the pics of my previous few weeks, the pics I uploaded were all over that and completely fine) I just wanted to share my progress with th

    Journey to pretty skin :)

    Hi! good luck with your second course! im asian skinned too so i know what you mean about the hyperpigmentation lasting forrreever ahhaha im on my second month of accutane. yaa i agree with the poster above as I don't think you should get clarisonic yettt.. cuz right now, sometimes very gentle towels irritate my skin.. I mainly just wash my face with the palms of my hands in a very gentle manner

    The miricle drug sure does suck sometimes.

    CONGRATS!! your almost done!! so cooolll... right nwo it seems like a dream for me hahhaha. THats great how ur mom thought u were wearing foundation!! its always that moment where u kinda go so "yayuhhh .. all that itchiness dryness andannoyingness was all worth it" my skin is nowhere near clear yet but my mom already thought i was wearing makeup too hehehe go us accutane users!!
  22. cheeseblu

    clear skin please!

    congrats on one month down, feels like a great milestone hahhahah faster then it seems huh? good luck with your new dosage!!! I'm taking 60mg a day so it's kind of like ur dosage... except just the same everday. haha I know what you mean about the over night acne drying out thing though... its kinda crazy cuz before I took accutane, if i feel a bump coming up, i KNOW its gonna be there for the next week -____- lol.

    JEI on accutane!

    hi! good luck with your course! hrmm i don't think its a good idea to keep ur face dry.. its going to irritate your skin more esp since its already sensitive. I think u just need to find the most gentle lotion.... that way it won't itch. Maybe try to figure out what ingredient you are more sensitive to on the lotion which makes u itchy. i know my friend is allergic to one specific lotion but has no problems with others.

    clear skin please!

    oh my goodness, i had exactly the same problem with u about teh whiteheads on teh nose around that same time. (i think i'm only like a week or two before u ) anyway ya.. i resisted it for about a week and i couldnt resist it anymore and..... scraped teh whiteheads out -___- (but i did it by first steaming my face, then using the whitehead extractor... then I iced it and put neosporin on it). but I woudlnt recommend it cuz my nose was red for a while anyway, rest assured, the whiteheads all dis

    My log

    Hi! Good luck on your course your exactly the same age as my younger brother! haha anyway. A good gentle cleanser that a lot of ppl on this board recommend is cetaphile. I also use Neova herbal wash. Both of these you can buy online too aquaphor for nights on the lips. and regular chapstick/ blistex during the day. I also put aquafore around teh sides at the nose at the beginning of my course when the skin kept painfully flaking off. Invest in a good body lotion too. or at least a big one.
