  1. I don't feel like reading through the whole thread, but short answer: yes. Long answer: Hell yes. I could write up a long ass answer with tons of reasons why it's worth it, but i'll keep it short by saying that going on accutane was one of the best decision I've made in my life. As a matter of fact, I'm halfway through my second course right now, because the acne started to come back 3 years after my first course. The only side effects I had on both courses were dry lips and skin. A bloody nose
  2. I can answer that question. 2 times accutane user here, so I know what it's like to go from having acne to having no acne. It doesn't change your life. It just makes everything easier. I'm not gonna lie, it's a very awesome feeling waking up in the morning not fearing any new pimples when going into the bathroom. It also makes everything much more enjoyable. But it doesn't magically make your life much better if you have deeper issues than acne (which quite alot of people seem to have on this bo
  3. Those red marks are not permanent. They do take a while to completely fade away though. The only thing that will really work is time. They WILL fade away with time as long as you don't get new acne (because new acne = new redmarks). Drink a lot of water, exfoliate, moisturize and be patient. By the way. you could really use a tan. Your girlfriend is right saying that it's not that bad. What makes it look worse though, is the fact that your skin is so pale. Try to go out and spend some time in th
  4. I got wasted a couple times on my first course and everything was alright. Well.. I'm still alive . I'm on a second course 4 years later and I drink whenever I want to (not very often anyway). I don't think it's that bad honestly unless you'd get wasted 7 days straight which I doubt you will. Just my 2 cent. Good luck with your course
  5. Day 17 Hi guys, just a quick update. I Have a little break out on my back right now that consist of 3 average pimples and 1 kind of big pimple (cyst I think). I popped the 2 smallest ones (couldn't resist). I also have another pimple along my hairline, behind my head, that is quite painful. So is this my initial breakout? I wouldn't call that an initial breakout, but if it's as bad as it's gonna get, sign me up for that. I'd much rather have it on my back than on my face. Face is still 100
  6. Wrong. Your pores permanently shrink and there is about a 25-50% chance that your acne will return within 2 years. Read up on it before you write nonsense. Constipation is either from your digestive system cleaning properly, or you are over-taking a certain vitamin/supplement (excess of it). Look, I have nothing against your opinion. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but first of all: why would I care if my pores shrink? Is that even true, do you have any proofs of that and if true, wh

  8. damn that's very high. I've never seen anyone take that dosage, I can't comment on it being good or bad. I guess you have to trust your derm on this one.
  9. Day 15 Hi ghost town. Nothing major to report. I got some very tiny whiteheads here and there in the last 4 days, but they appear and disappear within the same day. I have not been unhappy about my skin at any point in the first 15 days so far. This is really awesome to be honest. Oh and I've been eating a bunch of foods that I know made me break out before accutane and everything's been good so far. This has to be one of the most awesome thing so far on accutane. Lips still very dry,
  10. I know what you mean because I am obsessive too, therefore i don't blame skillgrid at all and almost get mad htat people attack him for caring. I mean why wouldn't he want to make it look perfect again? It shouldn't make him feel too bad because it isn't, but then again we have to all remember that everyone's "bad" is relevent. Yeah, I don't blame him for feeling bad about his skin. I know everyone wants perfect skin and that everyone's ''bad'' is relative. But I can spot unhealthy and obsessiv
  11. Washing with water and moisturizing with Cetaphil has been working well for me. You can use a gentle face wash if you want, but it's not a necessity. I wear contact lenses and I don't really have any problems with it, but I have to admit that I can't wait to take them off when I get home, because they do start to make my eyes feel dry at the end of the day.
  12. You have what is called ''body dysmorphic disorder'' (Not kidding) Look it up. You should listen to what everyone said here. Even though some were kind of rude about it (and I kind of understand them) They're just trying to do you a favor. Your problem is mental and if you don't fix it, it'll hunt you for a long time. Trust me, this is coming from someone who had the same problem as you. I would be obsessed about any freaking little thing on my face that people would never even pay attention
  13. I say save yourself some time and a lot of pain. Take accutane and be done with it. Let people who are scared of taking it keep on inventing bullshit horror stories. You can either take it, get 100% clear and enjoy life OR you can start becoming obsessed and watching everything you eat scared that it'll make you breakout. The choice is up to you man. By the way the only side effects you'll get on accutane are dry lips and skin. I call that a small price to pay for clear skin.
  14. That's not how it works. Accutane shrinks your oil glands so they can't produce as much oil anymore. That is the cause of acne. Accutane pretty much buy you some time so you can grow out of acne naturally (as in getting older , hormones normalizing and sebum production decreasing naturally). The shrinking of oil glands is temporary though and when the oil get back to normal you'll start getting acne again if your body hasn't grew out of acne yet. That's why the success rate gets higher and highe
