  1. i am well aware that accutane causes very bad dryness of the skin. however to combat the dryness i know that i should put on lotion but i wonder... which is worse for the skin? the greasiness of the lotion or to put on no lotion, will the dryness irritate the skin so much as to cause acne?
  2. yeah.. i used to eat a yogurt everyday and cereal very ocassionally until i had cereal everyday for about 5 days straight a couple weeks ago and i broke i really badly so i completely quit dairy.. i thought accutane was bigger than that but i guess i still have a long way to go before accutane negates stress and dairy put together
  3. i was wondering if stress is big enough a factor that even while on accutane it can still cause breakouts?? i know how powerful accutane is and that it should, at a certain point, start to take over little factors (ie chocolate, lotion greasiness etc) but im wondering if stress is potent enough to still cause acne over the powers of accutane. thanks
  4. Hi, I am on my 6th month of my third cycle of accutane (80, 40/50, 30mg) now. I was wondering if dosage is significantly dropped, say from 60mg for a week to a constant 30mg a day would it make acne worse?? Also, I have been taking 30mg/day for about 4 months now but i consistently get like 2/3 new ones each day with each unit of acne clearing away in 3 days. It seems that the old goes away quickly but new ones keep coming. Do I just need to keep waiting a little longer or does this mean i
  5. i am on my 3rd accutane course now. during the entire duration of my second course, i was drinking heavily but achieved the clear skin i wanted however, i am on my third cycle now and am on my 4th month (usually the month where everything stops) and am still seeing breakouts i am wondering if alcohol hinders the accutane from working or if it makes it worse?? thanks
  6. i am in the middle of my cycle and will be gone for two months overseas to travel during the summer. I am currently taking 20mg a day and was concerned if I will not have a means to obtain pills for the second month of my travel. so i was wondering if i should refill with 40mg before i leave and take this every other day for those two months which would be the same as 20mg a day for two months?? thanks

  9. yeah. out of depression while on accutane i feel a loss of appetite which prevents muscle mass growth, and energy needed to work out. i lose drive and the boost i need to lift and always feel very tired. however i still have enough focus when i use my anger from acne toward working out and thinking ahead positively to the finished product of when i complete my accutane cycle added with a fit, toned body
  10. i am currently into my 3rd month of my cycle on 20mg a day. i am taking protein bars which has 50% of the daily value of vitamin A every other day after my work out im wondering if the extra vitamin A will make my acne worse or by any means prevent the accutane from doing its job?? i just dont fully understand why we are to avoid extra amounts of vitamin A
  11. I'm currently taking 20mg of claravis prescribed from the doctor and 10mg of isogem at the same time every morning for about 2 weeks now and was wondering if mixing them would screw up the accutane process and prevent it from treating the acne??
  12. 3 cycles wow. Did u never stay completely clear off finishing a course. What has your time line been like? Sorry these are question and not answers to your question, but i am inquiring about it because i may be taking accutane myself sometime soon and just trying to gather info from all accutane users. my first was about 3 years ago in 11th grade. 80mg for 6 months. 6 months is the standard but can be taken longer. my face was beautiful and clear like a princess but my back was still
  13. well seeing that my dosage is pretty low, additional amounts of vitamin A wouldn't hurt, in my opinion- compared to my previous cycles of 80mg and 50mg. my question is would it have any effect on making the acne worse or prevent the accutane from doing its job??
  14. I'm currently on my 3rd cycle of accutane. i am also an avid weight lifter but have very bad experience with whey protein which triggered the acne exposion long time ago so I do not currently take any supplements. However, I have started to take protein bars but have just noticed that they contain 50% DV of vitamin A. I know that I am supposed to avoid vitmain A in any form while taking accutane, which is bascially vitamin A. but my question is: WHY are we supposed to avoid them?? i'd lik
  15. I am taking my 3rd cycle of accutane. I have finished my second with success but had another annoying breakout but this time before it got worse thought I would control it with a low dosage seeing that, although it was on its way to getting out of control, it was nowhere near as bad as my acne was pre-accutane. I asked the doctor for 20mg and she gave me 40mg instead saying the first month should be to eradicate the acne. It did and i was clear for the 5 last days and switched to 20mg for th
