    i hate accutane

    I kinda feel the exact same way...I'm just finishing up my 5th and final month and while my skin isn't nearly as bad as it was in the beginning of my course I can't help but be disappointed. I actually was just looking back at all my pictures I took throughout my course and I'm just mortified that I actually functioned looking the way that I did. My IB was severe and lasted well into month 4 and not just little whiteheads but ginormous painful steroid sized cysts - not to mention I'm still br

    LETS START THIS POLL!!!!

    1) Age: 24 Dosage: month 1-4 - 60mg, month 5 - 80mg. Currently on: day 140 and doing a 5 mo. course. 2) Cleanser - Purpose 3) Moisturizer - Cerave Lotion 4) spot treatment? None 5) redmark treatment? None but would love to hear some recommendations. 6) are you still breaking out? Have been the whole time but I guess it's slowly tapering off. 7) products to avoid that broke you out - DO NOT PUT AQUAPHOR ON ACTIVE CYSTS!!! Someone told me to do this and it spread the bacteria all
  3. So I'm really confused and scared and need some reassurance or input!!!! I'm currently on day 130 (4 - 1/2 months) and I'm still breaking out and my skin is just a mess - STILL! I orginally thought I was doing a 6 month treatment plan but when I saw my derm. last week she mentioned I'm only doing 5 months - even though I'm still breaking out!! I've noticed that most people do 6 months and I just don't know what to do. I asked about a 6th and she just said no I was doing only 5 and offered
  4. Thank you for your comment on my pic :) You're the reason why I posted them! It's nice to know your not alone and even nicer knowing there is hope :) Keep your chin up love and don't let those people or acne rule your life :)

    1. I've been on Accutane for almost 5 months now and I was wondering if anyone's had any problems with dying their hair while on Accutane? My scalp is dry and a little itchy but not too bad at all. I'm scared because I read about some girl that dyed her hair and it burned holes in her head so she had to stop her treatment until they healed! I'm assuming she had to of bleached her hair or something and I'd just be dying my roots a darker brown and possibly some highligts. I wash my hair with hea

        let's get this going already!

        Hey I'm doing a six month course but I think I'm going to end up asking for a 7th. I've been on 60mg throughout my treatment and weigh 130 lbs. so I'm right where I'm supposed to be but I'm still breaking out =/ My derm. said she'd be willing to bump my dose up to 70 or 80 mg and I'm scared to but at the same time I don't want to go through all this for nothing...what to do!? Looks like your day 100 is just around the corner About your quack - I'm really sorry you had to experience that a

        Hey hun, just wanted to say you're not alone and I can't tell you how relieving it is to know I'm not alone either! Currently on day 100 (I think I'm only a wk. behind you) - still breaking out and feeling like I'm on day 10 all over again. The vicious cycle just keeps repeating but HOPEFULLY things will start to change for us in the next month or two. Keep your chin and keep in touch

        My journey to find clear skin

        I'm 24 and have been struggling with cystic acne since I was 13. I've literally tried everything under the sun and have been trying to get on accutane for the past 8 years (just goes to show how hard it is). I'm super self-conscious about my skin - I avoid direct lighting and mirrors at all cost and never leave the house without my "mask" (makeup) on. Acne has controlled my life and I dream of the day I can FINALLY look in the mirror and just see a beautiful face :) I started my Claravis tre
