  5. I would really like to start accutane, but my parents are afraid too....They heard stories of hair falling out, and depression, etc... You think that will happen to me or is it a mixed bag situation..?

  12. Neosporin? Never heard of that, im gonna give that a try tonight...And yes my mom just told me they have retouch, so that does make me feel tons better!
  13. I have had acne since i was about 13. I'm now almost 18, senior in high school and am still suffering from large painfull bumps. When i say i have tried everything, i mean i have tried everything...From minocycline,tetracycline,proactive,acnefree,oxy,netrogena, home remedies, and nothing has worked for me...So as of tomorrow im going to try this diet.

  15. Hey guys, i have cystic acne, and i have been on doxy since august...hasn't done to much...recently i was put on BenzaClin, and it has worked well until 2 weeks into it i have large cysts again...i'm really thinking about accutane but, i got side effects from minocycline, which is why my dermatologist put me on doxy...Do you think its really worth trying accutane?
  16.

  23. thanks guys, but the doctor gave me a booklet, and said it has somehwat caused suicide attempts, and depression blah blah, and that even scared me but this acne is so annoying. And im in school right now, i have ajob it would be super hard to get a dr.app every month for blood work, is also what he said i would need untill june.
  24. i was thinking about accutane too, but im prone to getting sideffects, for example they put me on minocycline and i got sick to my stomach and dizzy, they switched me to doxy cycline, which is what im at now. Isnt working to well, and they recommend accutane, as the final thing.
