  1. Hello everyone! I'm about to start my 2nd course of accutane and I figured I might as well keep a log of my progress. I suppose I should start this off by saying I don't really need to take accutane again. Before my first course I had moderate to severe acne and definitely needed to take it, but the first course cleared me up nicely after being on it for roughly 6 months and for a while after finishing I didn't break out at all and everything was good. That was 2 years ago. Since then my acne ha
  2. Hi. My name it Tyler. I'm a 22 year old male and have suffered from acne since I was ~16. At first my acne consisted of cysts, about 1 every month, along with your typical white head and nodular acne. It was never severe but it was always persistent and enough to where someone would be like "hey this kid doesn't have a clear face". So I took all your standard antibiotics and tried all the standard topicals and nothing worked; I was miserable. So at age 19 I went on accutane. One of the best
  3. Hi everyone, It's taken me a while to get round to doing this log. I've been reading some other accutane logs here and feel I might benefit from my own! So here goes. My backlog Started having severe acne around 17/18 years old, only on the face. If I remember correctly, I was using facial washes around the time, but had no proper understanding of ingredients within them! I ignored the acne as I didn't consider it to be a medical problem, I just thought it would was an "age" thing, and
  4. I took accutane about 24 months ago after trying everything else. My acne was never severe but it was painful, stubborn and looked bad. The first time I took it I was completely clear in 3 months, I had the usual symptoms of severe dryness and although my skin was clear the dryness still meant my skin was very red/reactive and didn't look healthy until about 2 months after I stopped. I also noticed my head was fuzzy for a while and my cognition definitely deteriorated but not so much that I felt
  5. Hey guys, I took 40 mg Accutane for 6 months, and my skin was wonderfull for a while. After only one month post my skin started to get oily and got some tiny zits. Now I'm 4 months post and those tiny zits started to break out bigger, and now I have a couple of cysts (as I feared). My doctor told me today I had to begin a 2nd course. On my 1st course the side effects were mild and bearable, but since it's been only 4 months off, I'm quite worried that these side effects will come stronger this
  6. Hi everyone, I've been meaning to go back to this site and update about my second course of Accutane, cause I know when I first started round two, I looked high and low on the Internet for other people who also did round two, and could not find anyone who had shared. So if this is helpful for others, I'm glad to come forward. Brief history: did my first round in May of 2010. Has no serious complications other than the dry lips. Skin cleared up almost instantly and I was so happy. Once I came
  7. Hey guys, It has been established that a regular dose of accutane, instead of the low dose, has been more successful in curing acne in the long run. I am curious to hear what has been your experience. Please, tell me for how long did you take Accutane, what was your dose, how much did you weigh at that time, how severe was your acne (if your have pics even better!) and for how long did your skin stay clear. I hope that all of the Accutane users who have had to go a 2nd or even 3rd rou
