  3. Keep at it, i was going through the same thing, you start to question it but since my last post ive seen a considerable improvement! good luck!
  4. im in the same boat, on 40mg in the third month, its going pretty well, how about you?

  7. Im on 40mg daily and a similar thing happend to me! Used to be randy all the time but for the first month of taking isotretinoin my sex drive just died on me. It was refreshing in a way not to be thinking about sex all day! Im coming u p to month 3 now and everythings returning to normal, which is much better! give it time, if your seeing her again maybe you might have to take a little blue pill to make sure!
  8. You sound like you were in the exact same position as me. I would say I had mild to moderate acne but on my back mainly. Very persistant. Im on 40mg once daily aswell, i was quiet oily before the treatment but now really dry, ive been on isotretinoin for just over two months and im just starting to clear up. My acne got worse for the first month id say and just started to die down now, it does get better, good luck!
  9. Yea its fine to drink tea, good job, im english!
  10. tell me about it! i look like im self harming at the minute, my arms are scratched and grazed all over which never used to happen! My dog jumped up on the sofa when i was on it the other day and left a really big scratch on my back which is just about fading now! your skin just takes longer to heal when on accutane thats all, Good luck!
  11. oh this is great, just as my skins starting to clear and my confidence is increasing I wont be able to use that new confidence in the bedroom! I can still get the old man up but I just dont feel as horny anymore, weird. hope the old fella wont let me down! cheers for all your responses its good to know im not on my own in a weird way!
  12. Hi looby-loo and welcome to the site! Ive been on accutane for about 7 weeks and ive started to see similar sympton as you! Ive been feeling a liitle sick and I feel bloated, this might not have anything to do with the tane though, sometimes that just happens, I think you are hypersensitive when taking such a strong drug! I woudnt worry about it though but if it continues might be worth talking to your derm, good luck!
  13. Thanks for getting back to me, yea ive heard nuts are good because they have a high fat content aswell, good luck !
  14. Hi everyone, just wondering what everyone takes with there accutane tablets. I know your supposed to have it with or just after foor and ive heard fatty foods are best, do people have olive oil? Cheers
  15. yea I had that aswell, got it quiet bad on my left hand especially. Found that if I just moisturied my hands often id died down after a couple of days and hasny come back since, good luck with everything!
