  1. Hee hee. Me too. I wake up in the morning and have to walk to the bathroom flat footed (like a zombie!) - it hurts too much to bend my feet! I also have really bad neck ache when I first wake up. The pains kind of go right up into the back of my head. Anyone else have this?
  2. Hello. I too live in the UK and have just bought Dr Dan's balm it from the US on Ebay. x
  3. OK. This is a just a quick post to inform those considering taking the dreaded Roaccutane. Now I ABSOLUTELY HATE taking ANY form of medicine including antibiotics, contraceptive pill, headache pills etc. I use them as an absolute last resort. I am 31 and have been suffering with severe acne since the age of 19. The horror stories about Tane scared me to death and I swore I would NEVER take such a terrible drug - especially as I suffer from anxiety and sometimes depression. Anyhow, to cut a l
  4. Me too! I've been on 20mg a day for just over 2 weeks now and my vision is very odd (it was 20/20 before starting Tane). I sometimes get a rush of dizziness/light headedness which is a bit scary too...At the moment I'm just trying to ignore it.

Anyhow, after years of putting it off, I've finally started taking Roaccutane 2 weeks ago. I weigh 58kg and am on a low dose of 20mg a day. So far so good with only a few side effects - red face, slightly dry lips. Until yesterday! My vision has started to go a bit blurry - especially when driving or at night. As I type this now my eyes are going in and out
  9. Hi there. I am in EXACTLY the same boat as you - had acne for 11 years and it's severe. Have tried everything and nothing really works (accept Dianette pill which raised my blood pressure and made me depressed). My dermatologist insists I need Roaccutane and although acne is destroying my quality of life, I am SCARED TO DEATH about the side effects of Roaccutane (especially if they are long term). Just don't know what to do...
