  1. Funny thing really... I am on my 2nd week of accutane.. and have been noticing something quite ODD! My hair on my head seems to be thinnin' out.... BUT my facial hair seems to be much more noticeable since I've been on accutane!!! It really really is embarrassing I almost look like I have a mustache! Grrrrr... I hope accutane works for me! 1st month saw enormous improvement... had dry face and dry lips... then had to take a 1-2 week break because the derm. had a hard time gettin' me registere
  2. Aloha everyone! I have just started my first course of Accutane, and wanted to know how long do I have to wait after my course to start laser treatments for the acne scars left behind?? Has anyone had experience on this? Any advice would be very much appreciated... Thank you.
  3. Nope... no luck wit' the scars.. it does help a bit wit' the acne though.. it dries up your face like heck though!! G'luck!
  4. Hi Blacksheiladog, Congratulations on your daughter's success! I would like to know if your daughter was taking Minocin while undergoing these laser treatments?? I am currently on Minocycline (generic of Minocin) and I am seriously considering getting the Pulsed Light procedure..
  5. Wow.. I think if you are not seeing results after 10 weeks, or are not happy with how slow it's taking... I think you should see your derm. about upping the dose 200mg sounds good I am currently on 200mg a day, but I am on Minocycline, and I just started my 2nd month and I'm clearing up great Good-luck to you..
  6. I am in my 2nd month on Minocycline... and I just wanted to know if I could get a dermabrasion while on Minocycline?? I've read that people who are on Accutane shouldn't get dermabrasions while on Accutane or 6 months after, since their skin will be very thin... So, I was wondering if the same goes for Mino?? I haven't talked to my derm. about this yet, because I won't be seeing him until my next appt. which is not until Jan. 2005.. so any comments I can get here, I would greatly appreciate it.

  8. I just wanted to know if you also use any other medicine along with the Tetracycline?? For example, Differin?? Because in my experience, I am currently on Minocycline(also a tetracycline), along with Differin (topical for my face), and I've noticed that my face gets VERY sensitive to ANYTHING I put on it, like makeup and even when I wash my face with CETAPHIL, it BURNS like crazy.... Just my two cents... hope this helps
  9. I'm also on Minocyline.. I'm into my 4th week... My derm. instructed me to take it on an empty stomach, because it will be absorbed better.. He said that if you take it with food, the food will interfere with the medicine being absorbed by your body... Hope this helps P.S. The derm. also mentioned that if I wanted to eat a meal, to eat it atleast 2 hours before I take the medicine...
  10. Yea.. unfortunately.. I'm still having the side effects... dizziness & headaches... grr..
  11. Btw... you may experience side effects like dizziness and headaches... so just watch out for that
  12. I am also in the same boat as you... I just started Minocycline about 3 weeks ago. My derm. gave me 100mg twice a day, and I'm also using Differin in my regime (apply before bedtime). I am noticing less breakouts in my 3rd week, but during week 1 and 2 I broke out a bit... so don't be bummed out if you breakout in the first week or so... The derm. is putting me on this regime for 3 months.. and if it doesn't work by Dec. then I get to go on Accutane Good-luck to you
  13. Thanks again for the comments everyone! I really appreciate all of your comments Good-luck to us all
  14. Thanks for the comments everyone. I now have some hope left.. Good-luck to all of us in our quest for clear skin!
  15. Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm looking forward to seeing the results...if it doesn't work, my derm. is putting me on Accutane... Thanks again everyone
