  1. My first course was 5 months of 40mg once a day. Now 3 years later I'm taking my second course. I just started at 40mg a day and I don't know specifically how long its going to be I'd guess around 5 months as well.
  2. Hey Everyone! I'm a 21 year old female and I'm on day 9. This is also my second time on accutane (first time was 3 years ago now). So far I only have dry and sensitive skin, and some occasional headaches (but probably made a lot worse or caused by the extreme heat here and thus dehydration). Oh and I'm going through a bit of an IB but its not too bad.
  3. If I don't take mine with a full meal I'll have a handful of almonds. Any nut really has really good fat.
  4. I'm only a week in, but I'm on celexa (citalopram, cipramil, an antidepressant) and adderall for ADHD and my doctor had no problem with it and I haven't had any problems yet either.
  5. I'm going through my initial breakout but have definitely found my skin quite sensitive. I'm wondering if you spot treat while on accutane or just let them be? Also if you do what do you use?
  6. Topical treatments don't seem do too much for me, I use them and they're okay but not amazing. Most often I just use over the counter stuff (sulfur works pretty well for me). But I think I've decided that I'm going to especially since in the past like 6 months its been getting much much worse and I want to stop it before it gets back to where it was. And honestly its it really bad that I have no idea who is in my avatar. The account was seriously from 3 years ago and I didn't remember anything
  7. haha I just made my own post about this, probably should have read things first. I'm in a really similar situation with like the same background except I've been off it for 3 years now. I want a quick fix (that's hopefully actually permanent) cause I'm just so sick of this, but I'm wondering if its really worth it cause like you its only consistent moderate. I have no idea what to do, my doctor also said he'd put me on it and I have an appointment on Friday.
  8. First off its so weird being back here, after 3 years. Anyways from March-July 2008 I went through a 40mg/day dose of accutane. It did a really good job, but never entirely got rid of it. In the past, like 4 months my acne has come back, not as bad but still quite a bit. I talked to my doctor who was willing to put me back on it, and I have an appointment on Friday. (also since I'm in canada no ipledge! hahah so I can start right away) I'm not sure if I should do another round. I'm 21 and bee
  9. I was really worried about it too at first, but everything has been fine, and I'm on my last month. I definatley didn't do anything special and have been drinking quite a bit (XD).
  10. So I'm 1 week into my last month of tane. Its worked really well (still lots of red spots and scars which I'm not crazy about) but it has still worked. Yesterday I blanked and didn't take my pill and this morning I work up with an oily t zone. This was very very upsetting. I don't want it to be like this when I stop. I also and going away to college and won't be under direct supervision of my derm. What should I do?
  11. I was about a month into tane when I had my rook pierced. It was fine.
  12. Day 28: Wow, so I haven't updated in 10 days. Anyways, I'm going to get my blood taken today and then my appointment is on Thursday. I never really thought that it was going to be an issue but now I'm kind of worried for the results, because if they're not good I get taken off and my skin is improving for like the first time ever. As for my skin yesterday wasn't great but I just spot treated with 10% sulfur and this morning I look fine. One thing I've noticed about tane is that even when you get
  13. It does look good. You may also want to look into supplements. And with or without acne you are gorgeous.
  14. Thanks to everyone that responded, I'm hoping that I become less self conscious.
