  1. hey. yes my derm gave me a prescription for prednisone while on accutane. It was at the beginning and I was breaking out like mad. I had cysts and my face swelled a little. I didnt go on it though, this was a personal choice. I was on 80mg per day of accutane I just didnt want to pump more in my system than i had too. From what I have heard though, prednisone while on the accutane is good and reduces facial swelling and helps to deal with insane acne.
  2. mine went away for the most part. ive been done since april 2009 and they have since returned (not as bad though)
  3. hey everyone. I did accutane from november 2008 to april 2009, and I just wanted to say that it has been one of the best decision i have ever made.

It has sort of stopped now and I noticed I have tons of
  4. Hi! did/do your redness fade?

  5. Hey guys! Late last yr and early this year I was on Accutane. Specifically from November 2008- April 2009. I was on 80mg per day. I finished and my skin has been clear.

These bumps are not noticeable except to me. I still look like my skin is fully clear. I have gone to my derm a little over a month
  6. I finished accutane in april and i seemed to have had a really good experience. I was on 80mg for the whole thing. The worst that I got was a horrid horrid IB, i got some many zits and a few cysts (which were clustered together) so that was pretty painful. That aspect of my course lasted maybe.... 1 month before it was was on its way to recovery. Other than that, I got really dry lips, i got a rash on the back of my hands (which was probably exacerbated by the fact that it was winter where i l
  7. thanks for all your replies. I am not on birth control because i really didnt need it. IDK if its different in the usa, but here they dont make you go on if you are not gonna be sexually active during the term. as for my dr, i know it is a side effect and when i asked him he said it wasn't i know that he is wrong, but as it stands right now i am done accutane in 5 days, if in the future i need to go on it again i will look into different doctors. Again.. i know its a side effect. I am just wo

  9. This morning I woke up thinking wow, when did i have my last period, and i realized it has been over a month. i am FOR SURE not pregnant, and I am just wondering if missed periods have been a common side effect. My cycle has changed since I have been on it and I asked my doc and he said its not a side effect (which i didn't believe) I am done accutane in 6 days and have been on 80mg per day since nov (so 5 months) help guys, i am kinda freaked out, I never thought id want my period (aka normal
