  1. Hey everyone, i made a blog but i thought just making a question in a forum would be easier. Here my blog (From start to week 2) WEEK 3 (21 Days) I am still getting new spots more or less everyday or every second day so i guess im still going through the initial breakout, hopefully this will stop at week 5 or sooner because it is my birthday (woo) then and it would be great if it did. At the start i was drinking a lot of milk and other dairy products to try and get the "high fat"
  2. Hello I had bad acne on my chest, back and face then i took a course of accutane in 2011 which cleared my back and chest (95% clear) but my facial acne returned so i am on my second course. I've read that after each course of Accutane your pores shrink so would this mean that the chances of my back and chest being 100% clear after second course are high? Please reply if you understand me Thanks
  3. Hi. Ive been on accutane for nine weeks and this has been my dosage so far: -Week 1 and 2: 20 mg/day -Week 3 and 4: 20 mg and 40 mg every other day -Week 5-9: 40 mg/day My question is: my derm told me one month ago that in about one month (today) I could increase my dosage to 40 mg and 60 mg every other day. But im still breaking out pretty bad, so Im wondering if I should stay on 40 mg/day until it has calmed down, or if I should increase my dosage regardless of my breakout. Im so afraid
  4. Hey everybody, I'm a first time poster but long time reader and follower of this forum. I've been struggling with acne my whole life and it's great to come to this forum and see that I'm not alone. I honestly can't even remember when the dreaded problem started but I can say that I am 26 years old and suffer with adult acne. Most of my acne is on the left side of my face with zits here and there on the right. It's been hard to pinpoint the cause of my acne but it's most likely hormonal due to t
  5. Hi everyone! Today is my first day on Accutane and I decided to read some logs on here to sort of give me hope. Well, it scared me more than anything. I would like to know what products you ex or current Accutane users are using to reduce common side-effects. I've heard about chapped lips so I got myself a repairing lip-balm. I've read that some users get nosebleeds and that is something I've never experienced before and I don't want to experience it so is it safe to use a nasal spray for dr

    End of 3rd month

    Woop! I haven't updated in ages. I'm at the end of my third month, and it's been 2 months at 60mg. My skin is better with some set backs from time to time and often related to the menstrual cycle. My back is finally healing, i have the occasional new pimple but most of my skin is now only scabs and scars that are slowly fading. My face is all right, i still get some cysts on my cheeks and chin, usually one after the other; it's manageable with make-up, and the rest of my skin is clear! Nothin
  7. Hey Guys, Today is my first day of a 5 month course of accutane. I will be taking 30mg per day for the first month and move up to 60mg after that. I'll give updates whenever I feel like it and i'll try to reply to everyone who comments.
  8. In the middle of MONTH 3! Still in the "Gets worse before it gets better" phase... and am TIRED of it. Side effects- Dry, swollen lips (bearable), dry skin(better than month 2 though), hair thinning. 60mg Absorica, now taking both 30mgs with high-fat dinner per derms request since I wasn't "dry enough" at my last appointment. Feeling: Extremely discouraged.. Tired of the redness (Thankful for Mac concealer!) My face has definitely never been this bad before. Does anyone's face look

    Week 18 50Mg

    So I ran out of 10mg pills and started taking alternate doses doses of 40mg one day and the 60mg, averaging out to 50mg right? a few days into this my skin suddenly got very very oily again and was a horrible reminder of what I had to deal with before, but has now settled down again I'm very anxious as since I've got my copper iud, although hormone free my menstrual cycle has become irregular and I really hope this doesn't have an impact on my skin I haven't got any pimples since last week, ju

    I can't even BELIEVE I am posting this, wow. Ok don't mind the swollen, absolutely 0 make-up, just woke up, pissed off face. But I have NEVER seen my face like this. I know, I know- I've seen worse on here.. But this is COMPLETELY discouraging you guys.. I just thought I had my IB last month, ohhh no, That was just a tease, y'all. Can this nightmare be over with?

    Week 2

    Hey everyone, The dry lips are coming on strong now, i'm using Vaseline and aquaphor lip treatment which works very well, i still have to apply it a lot throughout the day. My oily skin has basically vanished, i am now just using Cetaphil gentle cleanser once on the night and it seems to be doing the job. Still getting the odd new spot here and there but they seem to go away ALOT quicker than before. Some parts of my face are starting to flake so i have ordered the Aquaphor soothing skin

    Day 30

    1 month in, four or 5 more to go. The biggest hassle of all this bullship is making the monthly appointment, getting bloodwork, waiting for lab results, having to answer questions on pledge to make sure i know how not to get pregnant, and get approved to pick up the meds from the pharmacy. I guess guys don't have to do all that, so lucking fugging you. Anyway picked up my prescription today, doc has advised me to take two 30mg pills a day, meaning 60mg a day. I wonder how the side effects wi

    Accutane Journey / Accutane Log

    This is my first post. so hello everyone! I am 23 years old and have been dealing with acne since high school, i have tried almost every topical, pill, otc, prescription, diet, and home remedy you can think of. I am 5'4" and weigh 110lbs. I am just looking for support, advice, and comments as I go through this accutane journey. I am 19 days in and will be on accutane for a total of 5 months. During the first week of 40mg my skin was doing well, it seemed to clear up a little bit and the oil was
  17. EXTREMELY discouraged every week. Woke up with a HUGE cyst on my forehead, a painful one on my jaw and cheek. Will this nightmare EVER end?!!! Mostly scars which I can deal with, but I hate having a huge volcano on my forehead that make up can't even fix. I really hope I don't end up regretting this... Can I get a break?! I haven't had ONE. Sorry for the negativity guys. Not a good morning.... =(
  18. I am a 14 year old male, weighing about 130 lbs(58 kg), and am taking claravis(Accutane) 30mg twice a day. I am around 3 weeks into what my dermatologist said would be a 5 month process. And so far, my face us a lot less oily as well as my back and chest, but it hasn't yet effected the actual acne. But right now I am much more worried about the side effects that are occurring, specifically my terrible joint and muscle pain, I play American football, and lift weights on a regular basis, so I am u

I'm eating alot of eggs which i understand have amount 5grams of fat. Thanks

    Back Pain?!?

    I'm on my 3rd month of Accutane (Claravis). Back in November, on my 5th day of taking Accutane, I was up all night with excruciating back pain and I threw up a few times. I woke up the next morning and it was fine. I told my Dr. about this & she just said to make sure I'm drinking A LOT of water. So everything was fine for awhile. Then when I started my 3rd month, she upp my dosage to 60mg per day (I was taking 40mg per day before.) On my 4th day of taking 60mg, the back pain thing happened

    I'm laying on the couch, hung over, drinking orange juice and watching Spongebob...so I thought it would be a great time to update. I was so excited a few weeks ago when my doctor upped my dosage to 60mg because I felt like I wasn't making much progress with 40. Unfortunately, with the 60mg came dryer lips and my face had a total break out. As for my lips, it's not so much my actual lips that are dry, it's the corners of my mouth (which is a little are to see in the picture I posted). The r
  22. Lovely, right? I'm in month 4 of Accutane and this is what I get rewarded with. Awesome! Good Morning to me! Side Note: My face looks like chicken pox due to scarring, but thank you MAC make-up for covering up that mess! Grrr, anyone else hate waking up to new cystic, painful acne?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
