  1. Well alot has happened these past two years...Here is a quick recap... November 2008, 1 month before my wedding I stopped Accutane. Results were favorable. End of November 2008, Married my best friend!!! Wedding pictures looked GREAT!!! August 2009, Pregnant with our first baby! May 2010, Gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl!!! Now in August of 2010 I wanted to say I am so happy I took accutane! I can't tell you the last time I had a cyst. The occasional whitehead app

    Accutane Journey

    My progress through accutane. I am a 24 year old female who has suffered from cystic acne since I was 15. It has progressively gotten worse and is now at its worst. Wish me Luck!

    Skin iD

    Has anyone tried this new product called Skin iD by Neutrogena? It is advertised on TV and all you have to do is fill out a personal survey and then they design a regimen for you depending on your answers. Apparently they have done studies that prove this product works (even though the sample size was only 500 individuals), but I wanted to see if anyone has used this line and seen improvement. If not, look into it...maybe it will work for someone here...

    AARRRGGGHHHHHH. tane.

    Hey Mo, I am so sad for you that things are not going well. Maybe your dose should be decreased? Your body is not used to the tane and by putting such a high dose in your body before it can even get used to it is probably causing the serious side effects. Like you said one day you took 40mg instead of 80mg and you felt better. I mean I am no doctor but it just makes sense to me to start of small and gradually increase the dose as your body adjusts to the new meds. I am only taking 20mg righ
  5. Sorry I haven't been on this topic for a while. As for my acne, its been two weeks on accutane. I am still breaking out but not as bad. I have a lot of scars that I am hopeing will go away by November. My wedding is November 22. Now that the summer is here I am finding that it seems like that date will be here before I know it. I found a place in my mall that does threading, which is ironic because there is absolutely no places around where I live that do it and all of a sudden when I need
  6. Thanks, good luck with the Tane to you too! It's nerve racking but, I hope it's worth it!

    1. Best of Luck to you Mo! I just started 2 weeks ago and am going though my first initial breakout. It suck but it will get better! Keep positive and don't give up!

        I'm on day 4

        Hey! I am on day 4 too. Only on 20mg a day and I haven't really seen any real change yet. Have been a bit itchy by my nose and my face looks a little red but thats about it. Be patient, I am sure the worst is yet to come. The wait is the worst part about this whole process. And remember it gets worse before it gets better! Best of Luck to you!
      2. Thanks! good luck to you too

        keep smiling xx

        1. Thanks so much! I have heard about threading before, but I never heard of it by where I live. Its sounds pretty uncomfortable, but you gotta do what you gotta do right?
        2. Good luck to you also.

          1. Good Luck to you! Remember it gets worse before it gets better!

            1. Best of Luck to you! Don't get discouraged with the side effects...Remember its for the best!

              1. For any Brides to be who are on accutane: Maybe this can help with advice anyone has or experiences some have gone through. I am anxious to hear what other women in my situation have gone through and thing they have done to look PERFECT for their wedding day! Looking forward to your posts!
              2. Well I haven't started accutane yet. Guess I should get them done before I start... Then afterwards I will just pluck. Not looking forward to that.
