  1. I just have a question, as I cannot find a straight answer anywhere and my physician didn't specify (I didn't ask). Can I take minocycline with food?
  2. Just want to know about dryness. My face got more dry in the first week of Retin-A then the entire 6 months on Accutane. Will my face eventually stayed pretty balanced? My face is probably pretty minor at this time, so about how much should I apply to my entire face?
  3. Does it honestly matter if you take it twice a day or can you just pop them both at once after a hearty meat-fat filled dinner?
  4. Don't even worry, it will work. I didn't get completely clear till around middle of month 4. I still get the occasional small pimple every now and then but they go away by the end of the day or the next day. Besides, I'd rather have 1 or 2 pimples and some redness then a whole face covered in acne and cyst.
  5. I'm taking 80mg a day total. Two 40mg capsules a day. usually with just a glass of milk and some fish oil before school and before bed. If I wanted to lower my dose, would it be ok to just take one 40mg capsule a day with a huge meal and obtain same effects? Thanks.
  6. I'm on my 5th month of Accutane and I love my results so far. My redness has decreased pretty dramatically in the past week or two and all I really have left is red marks and scars. I was wondering though, is it all right to get a facial done at a Spa? Specifically, a place called inSpa offers DermAbrasion and Acne facial treatments that aim to shrink pore sizes and hyperpigmentation and some other crap. So, I thought "this forum is knowledgeable, I'll ask them!" Is this a good or bad idea?
  7. What would be a good dose to lower it down to though? 40mg/day or 20mg/day
  8. My acne was horrible, I mean, it looked like a battlefield. So I went on Accutane and after 4 months, my face is completely cleared except for 1 or 2 tiny acnes. Problem is though, my face is very red and flushes easily and people comment saying my face looks like a tomato. I weigh 110 lbs and have been taking 40mg of Accutane twice a day for 3 months. I started with 20mg twice a day for one month. I've been using no cleanser or soap and have been very gentle on my skin. I've started to eat he
