  1. I had been on accutane (1 month 40 mg, 2 months 60 mg, 3 mg 80 mgs) the past 6 months with amazing results! Sigh... I never thought I'd say it when I first started on accutane, but I actually miss accutane. My skin was so perfect while I was on it... especially the past 3 months.

I'm just hoping that I'm one of the lucky ones where they don't need a second round of treatment. Anyway, I have a very very odd question. Does anyone here who have taken accutane also suffer from tonsil stones? It might be pure coincidence, but I've noticed that I'm
  4. Hello. New to the board. Anyway, tried searching the message boards for the answer, but only really came across messages saying that initial flare up is common. I've been on Accutane for about 4 days now and the flare up is driving me insane. It's gotten to a point where I don't feel like interacting with people anymore. I understand that the flare up is going to happen, but is there anything I can do to reduce it? I'm dreading that things will get even more worse than it is now before I s
