  1. Does Accutane actually work? Take the journey with me
  2. I had such a good experience with Accutane! I'm 5'1", 120lbs, Vietnamese Cyst acne. Start Accutane January 2009 First month 10 mg: bad break out. Second Month 40 mg: Very dry lips and bad break out. Third - Six Month 40 mg and 80 mg : Bad symptoms. Everything! Finished July 2009 See my blog and my photos!
  3. I'm not on bcp. I went to the doctor and he was flustered too. I think it just might be mother nature messing with me. booo thanks for the help though
  4. I'm on my 6th Month of accutane and my period has always been normal until now! I'm worried there might be something wrong with my liver or maybe something else. It's been a week and a half and my period has never been this long before, even before accutane! What do I do?
  5. I'm on accutane and my arms are very very very dry. Its weird and it sucks!! My left shoulder is the worst. It's peeling like I have a sunburn. Does anyone recommend any good body lotions?
  6. I took asprin but I;m not sure if you're suppose to. Lots of water and sleep.
  7. You mentioned that you do not understand why alcohol is not permitted during Accutane treatment. This is why...Accutane is metabolized by your liver. My doctor said it can be very hard on your liver and if you add alcohol to that which is also hard on your liver, it can cause irreversible damage. This scares me, so I won't be drinking any alcohol for the next six months of my treatment.

    1. Wow, I didn't know that other people used Turmeric too. I used to drink add a little bit of water and a teaspoon of turmeric powder and chug it down. Its an awful taste. I drank it for my health but didn't know it could benefit my skin! Maybe I should start again. So how do you make the paste again? Does anyone know if it's bad to take it when you're on Accutane?
    2. I've been using the tea tree oil night lotion stuff for a couple of weeks now and haven't seen any major improvements yet but I can see that it is slowly fading. I like the lotion and it doesn't make my skin break out.
    3. I love the vaseline jelly! I use it mostly for my lips but whenever I get a really dry spot on my face I use it at night. Yeah, it feels greasy, but I agree that it doesn't clog pores. I guess its the greasy part that makes it feel like it is clogging pores
    4. I don't really know if your sleeping position really matters because I can only get to sleep if I sleep on my back and I still have acne. How I trained myself was to surround myself with pillows (make a barrier I guess) and wrap my body blanket tight around my body. I did that for a long while and then got the hang of it. Good luck
    5. I used the Clinique 3 step a long time ago and didn't like it. It was a bad investment. I also did Proactiv for a year and then it stopped working. I used St.Ives Apricot Scrub with Salicylic Acid and really liked it eventually got too harsh for my skin. I now use cetaphil and oxy daily moisturizer with spf 15... I'm trying to limit on all the chemicals and see how my skin reacts to that.
