  1. I started March 1st and for the first 2 months I had killer nose bleeds, but they have subsided. I still get them, but not as often. Maybe 2 or 3 a month now.
  2. 599.99 per box and the dosage has not has an effect on the price so far.
  3. I have to have about 8 or 9 in all. 2 before I went on Accutane and then one for every month that I am on Accutane. I also think I have to have blood drawn a month after I finish Accutane. I am not sure how many months I will be on Accutane for, so I am not sure exactly how many blood tests I will have to take. They take about 3 mins. I got stuck w/ one needle and they took 2 viles of blood. I don't think I would have time to turn my ipod on. Try not to freak yourself out about it too much. Yo
  4. Has anyone use the Acne Mark Fading peel by Neutrogena? I am on Accutane and my intial breakout was kind of brutal. I have red marks all over my face and I was looking for somethign to help get rid of the marks. Has anyone used any acne fading product that worked? Thanks for any suggestions!
  5. I have to get two boxes a month because my dosage is 60mg and it cost me about 900.00 for both boxes w/ out insurance.
  6. Sunlight can cause an increased production of skin oils, which may make acne worse. Exposure to small amounts of sun is not bad, but baking in it can cause damage. I notice that in the summer when I go to the beach my skin clears up. I spend a little time in sun and slahter on the sunscreen to make sure I don't get burned. I have a friend who is constantly out in the sun and never protects herself. She thinks her skin looks better than when she is not tan. I think the reason she thinks her
  7. My derm told me that is entirley normal for people not to see results until their last month. Don't lose hope. There is still plenty of time for the meds. to kick it. Good luck!
  8. My derm informed that more often than not people get IB. I was one of them. It is pretty brutal.
  9. I have been on Accutane for about 6 weeks and I am healing sooooo slow. I scratched myself a few weeks ago and it looks like I just did it. My face is taking a really long time to heal too. I am not sure how long you should wait, but if it were me I would hold off. You derm could give you an idea.
  10. I am not a huge fan of the Avenno on my face. I do love the aquaphor. It seems to really keep my lips moist for a long time. It also makes them puffy.
  11. I have acne like yours and my derm prescribed me Accutane. I started getting acne about 3 years ago and tried many different meds. My intial breakout wasn't horrible, but it was bad. I am not use to getting acne like I did, so it was a shock. I would say the actually break out only lasted a few days. It has been over a month and my face has calmed down. It is healing, but not perfect yet. I am happy w/ the progress so far.
  12. I had my roots touched up a few days again and it stung a little, but nothing major. I am fine. I was in highschool and a friend of mine was taking Accutane. I didn't really know anything about the drug at that time. We waxed her eyebrows and when I removed the first wax strip a chunk of skin came Off with it. The skin was in the shape of a pyrmaid. She screamed and eyes starting tearing up. It was really wicked looking. She said she can't remember when something hurt that bad. I know these
  13. I would say around the 2 nd week I notice a slight difference. Yesterday was my 30th day and I can really tell a difference now. My hair and face are not greasy at all. I started on 40 mgs a day too.
  14. I just finished them about 5 mins. ago. The contraception part was the problem for me. You have to put the same thing that you derm puts and in the same order. The wanted to know you primary form and secondary form. My derms office mixed up the order, so it kept telling me to contact my prescriber. The second part are questions about Accutane, pregnancy and giving blood. They are all mulitple choice and all were easy. One question was what are the signs of pregnancy. Another question was w
