    None Didn't clear my skin at all, broke out worst. Proactiv worked better for me I will not buy this product ever again.
  1. No, I didn't mention it. I didn't think about it until later. I was just reading about Jaundice. So what can happen with that? I'll call my derm tomorrow, and try to go take it before the weekend.
  2. I just started my second cycle of Accutane a week ago. I've noticed though that my eyes, like in the corners, are getting a little yellow. I didn't realize it until my mom commented on 'em yesterday. I went to the doc today and got a physical, just to make sure everything was fine.. and she didn't mention anything about them. I don't get my first blood test for another few weeks. She said that it'll confirm if anything is wrong, other than that I'm fine. I looked online about yellow eyes and su
  3. @yellowphaze You sound just like me. Age, weight, metabolism, and I guess you could say acne. I had done my research before getting onto 'Tane. I had read that people take smaller doses to start with, then they'll bump it up after the first month- to get them used to it. That explains a lot. I always wondered why I was staying at only 40mg, but I let the derm do his thing. It wasn't until I mentioned something in the LAST month (the 5th), that he bumped me to 40/80/40/80/etc.. Then last Monda
  4. @yellowphaze 60mg a month for 6 mths...and you're my same weight? How bad was your acne? I always knew that it was too low of a dose. All over these forums I'm reading Accutane drying up their oil within the first few weeks, at most. Yet, I'm supposedly about to do my 6th mth and I still have oil. How are you right now? My oil isn't as bad as it was.. but its still noticeable. To me, at least. And its driving me fuckin' crazy. You make a very good point about pimples not surfacing overnight, b
  5. I know I shouldn't be taking alcohol while on it.. It wasn't until my 5th mth that I began to. And yea, I just read a sticky that taking it with no food/fatty decreases absorption by 50%. Fuck. My skin was pretty bad.. Didn't have cystic acne- but red and oily skin.. pimples (sometimes with whiteheads).. and manyyy tiny bumps on my forehead. It all pretty much went away within the first mth.. then the 2nd mth I had a breakout for like a week max, then its been smoothe sailing since then... ..
  6. I have a question for those familar with Accutane. I completed my 5 month cycle last Tuesday (8/17). The first 4 mths I was on 40mg, one a day. I weigh around 126-130 lbs. During the course of those four months, I only had a minor breakout in my second month. Nothing too bad. Less than a handful of pimples. The 5th month, I told my derm that though I wasn't breaking out anymore and my acne/red marks were fading tremendously, I still had oily skin (tho' not as bad).. and when my face would get

  8. My skin was lookin' so good today I went to the beach with 9 other friends.. I think I fucked up, lol.. I know a breakout is inevitable now. Sun always seems to do it.. and my red marks are showing too now.
  9. @Sarah99: Thank you.. and yeah, it does.. Pro-Vitamin A (as natural carotenoids: beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin) Betatene - 5,000 IU - 100% Daily Value When I went to the derm to be prescribed Accutane, he said if it was a regular multivitamin then it should be fine.
  10. @HereComesTheSun: thanks @JAMT: @hesitaton: Currently- on Acctuane? or before? Right now--Day 21--I still have a lil oil.. but not as bad as it was. Blackheads, esp on my nose, seem to be problem. I was a zit to the left of my mouth but its going away.. Its been there for a few days. I've only had a a handful of zits during this 3 weeks. Incredible improvement. None of 'em were worth any serious alarm. @lovemetal41: My face gets dry. I longer wash my face with the Cetaphil cleanser.. instead
  11. Day 17 Face is looking great. Not as oily, complexion is starting to even out. No forehead bumps. Only have had 3 whiteheads and no new acne since I've started 2 1/2 wks ago. Lips are chapped a little.. Dry skin and scalp seem to be my biggest problem. I keep waking up with dandruff but I nip it in the shower. I no longer have to wash my face.. I just splash it with water and then moisterize. So far so good... Damn, I should have went on this 2 years ago.
  12. I'm on Day 7.. So far I'm fine. A little dry skin, a little less oil, forehead is clearing of bumps, red marks on the sides of my cheeks are a little more noticeable. Had 2 whiteheads on my right cheek, they cleared up the next day. Skin is smoothe.. face is a lil red.. Really no breakout yet, as everything--as far as any bumps and pimples--is like pretty much going down.
  13. Looks like I'ma start earlier than expected.. The whole process to getting the pills went smoothe. I'm gonna start tomorrow.
