  1. I only did a 3 month course, actually probably less than that because I stopped for two weeks during the course and stopped about 2 weeks short. My skin is clear, I don't know if the results are permanent though. My derm hands this stuff out fairly liberally though, so I'll just go back if not.
  2. But now it's a higher copay . This whole accutane experience has been very odd for me, I've never had to deal with ipledge and never had any blood work, which is good for me because it's less stress, but odd nonethless from reading about everybody elses experiences. Further, I got my prescription filled the same day my derm prescribed it, no waiting period.
  3. I'm in month two, and all of a sudden the oil is and clogged pores are back, after switching brands. It's like I'm not even on "accutane". I don't even have to use moisturizer or lip balm anymore, though before I couldn't even step out of the shower without slathering my face. In any case, I know I won't be using amnesteem any longer.
  4. Introduction The Fat Soluble Vitamins include vitamins A, D, E and K, a group of vitamins that are absorbed and transported in the body in a manner that is very similar to that of dietary fats. About Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by the body in small amounts. The Fat Soluble Vitamins (A, D, E and K) are required in the diet to promote growth, reproduction and general health. Only two fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A and E) are stored in the body to any extent, so a regular
  5. More than doubling absorption is pretty significant. If you aren't taking it with fatty food, you are absorbing less than half the dosage. Accutane is very expensive, and i dunno about you, but i want to absorb as much of each dose as possible. lol, it does NOT come close to doubling absorption The booklet that came with my "accutane" says it does...
  6. I know what you mean too, I have them on my upper cheeks and chin and around my nose and mouth. They feel like sandpaper, and look like chicken skin when I stretch my face. I'm starting my second month of accutane, and some, but not all have gone away, though they won't even budge on my chin. When I started accutane, they got larger, almost as if they were being pushed to the surface, and came out as these small hard transparent granules, a bit like sand. I hope by the end of my course, they w
  7. They probably just forgot, I would have asked
  8. Dr. Dorothy Yang on Madison Ave. Her office is located inside a medical center whose name I do not recall
  9. I have the same problem with my skin not self exfoliating and creating clogged pores, and I've just discovered the peels are the best way to keep it under control I think that you should just do test patches to determine a safe strength; some people may not react at all to 12.5% and others may react intensely (there was one woman here whose top layer of skin was completely taken off by like 12 or 13% and had major hypopigmentation). I think the layers function to increase the depth of the pe
  10. I can not find it anywhere in her listing....
  11. Did things eventually end up working out with the peel?!
  12. dark skin tones? I don't see anything on the site that warns against it...
  13. Has anybodys acne really cleared up and stayed clear using a cylce of retin a, tazorac, differen etc? I personally do not want to be dependent on zit creams for the rest of my life to assure that I don't break out, ok, yeah, maybe using it here and there, but consistenly everyday don't mess up or else you'll be zitty is just not for me. I have mild acne, only clogged pores really, but I don't understand why a derm wouldn't prescribe me accutane...people who've had really severe acne now have c
