  1. Does anyone know where the Ceanel shampoo is available for purchase in the USA? I cannot find it online anywhere.
  2. Does anyone know where Ceanel is available for purchase in the USA? If not, can I buy it from someone here?
  3. Boba, Can you please tell me the name of the product you are using? When I follow the amazon link, it does not take me to the product, but just to the amazon home page. Thank you! Gbinct
  4. May I ask how old you are, and how much time you took in-between courses before starting another? I am in my late 30's and have delt with acne all of my life. I just completed my 1st course of Accutane, 40 mg for 5 months. My skin is incredibly clear, not a blemish on my face or body. Dry lips was my biggest side effect however around the start of month four I began to develop some joint pain. I'm fairly athletic, so it became troublesome. I'm hoping the pain subsides, now that I am fi
  5. I am a 38 year old adult male, white, who has suffered with chronic acne since about the age of 16 or 17. I have probably seen 6 or 7 Derms in my life, and have declined the use of Accutane 2 times in the past due to fear of the many side effects, and maintenance. Long term antibiotics kept me relatively clear, sometimes for months on end, but eventually my acne always returned, and usually with a vengeance. Acne has literally run my life for as long as I can remember. It affected my soc
  6. I'm from the US, between jobs, and unfortunately without very good insurance. From my local pharmacy (CVS) I would be paying close to $600.00 per month. Thankfully, my pharmacist told me about ordering through a Canadian pharmacy. I have done this, and pay around $75 per month. There are several good & reputable Canadian pharmacies out there like Northwest. So, for those without insurance, or for those with poor insurance, there are options.
  7. I'm a 39 year old white male and I have suffered with acne since about the age of 16. From that age, up until my mid twenties, I was under the care of probably 7 different Dermatologists. One of those derms was actually the now acclaimed Dr. Nicholas Perricone. His treatment, at the time was very different than his approach to acne today. Only one of these doctors ever truly helped me, and that was with an aggressive cycle of antibiotics, and topicals. At the time I saw him, my acne was very
  8. It sounds like it could be Milia. Tiny impacted pores. I have a little bit in my temple area. An Esthetician can probably extract them. I would definitely look into it.
  9. I am a 36 year old male who has been on a forms of Tetracycline since about the age of 17. I know this cannot be good for me, but it is the only thing that keeps my acne at bay. I eat right, drink plenty of water, use the correct topicals, etc. I have studied acne for so long. Minocycline is the current antibiotic I take. I have bloodwork every 90 days or so to check liver function etc. I have tried to stop taking this on many occasions. After a few weeks, the outbreaks return. Is the
  10. I am an adult male (36), who has suffered with acne since about the age of 17. My acne remains under control with good diet, water, supplements and an antibiotic which I am DYING to get off of. I have been taking DIM for about 2 weeks now, and my skin has never looked better. I try and see an Esthetician at least once a month for a deep pore cleansing and she suggested I try only washing with warm water in the morning, and my regular cleanser in the evening, rather than cleanser twice a day
  11. I'm sure this has been covered amongst the many pages in this thread, but what is a typical dose for an adult male? Much appreciated
  12. Thank you for your responses everyone. I don't think I am at the point where I need Accutane anymore, as my acne isn't "severe." Also, I am on an anti-depressant and I know that the two cannot mix. CubsFan - Are you still on an antibiotic? I believe that my system/skin, etc has become addicted to it. With it, and with my regimen, my skin stays virtually clear aside from stress, etc. If anything, it is very mild now. It scares me reading these long term effects that antibiotics can have
  13. This is my first post here. I am a 36 year old male who has suffered with acne since about the age of 17. From the age of about 19-25 my acne was extremely severe and very cystic. Unfortunately it left some scarring on both cheeks. I have seen more dermatologists in my life than I care to remember. Only two have helped me. One being the late Dr. Sidney Hurwitz who practiced out of Yale New Haven Hospital. He passed away in the mid 1990's. The other, his protoge, Dr. Nicholas Perricone,
