  1. For the past 6 years I have been eating an unhealthy diet and have struggled with dermatitis like symptoms. I recently realized that food might be the cause of my symptoms and had also realized that I have been almost constantly constipated. Going to the washroom was always about forcing and hard stools. When your stool becomes dehydrated from eating unhealthy the waste stays in your large intestine longer, therefore allowing more toxic materials to be absorbed into the body. At this point, I
  2. So this is a bit tmi and I don't even know if I'm posting this in the right place, I just made this account to ask this question. Has anyone else experienced chronic constipation from taking accutane? I have never had chronic constipation before accutane and I stopped taking it a few days ago because I am tired of it. I was close to finishing my third month, first two months on 40 mg a day third on 60 mg. Also I am a male and weigh about 180 pounds. I have resorted to drinking several glass
  3. I decided to take accutane for my back acne, but my face has is totally fine. So far I am on day 17 with Accutane 40mg, I noticed a lot of gas and constipation, and the urge to burpe a lot. My girlfriend is complaining quite a bit by my vulgarity. My lips and eyes just starting getting dry on day 15, its most definitely noticeable now. My mood, has been horrible since day 1 but I've just been dealing with it. I've been really tired and not able to work on projects so effectively as I us
  4. Hi everyone, I've done two courses of Accutane in my life time, one long one and then one shorter one a year later to finish it off. (see older posts for details). It's been exactly a year since my last pill and I am noticing some definite side effects just kicking in as of recently. The side effects are annoying but pretty easy to cope with from a day to day basis... Here are the symptoms I've noticed since stopping accutane: Dry eyes Dry skin Tingles (hands, feet, face) Dizziness T
  5. I've been on accutane for three days now, it seems like after the first day as soon as I take it i have to go to the bathroom really bad, it's like constipation and diarrhea at the same time, my stomach hurts from the gas. Should I call the doctor? Is anyone else dealing with this? Also my doctor isn't doing the monthly blood test for liver damage like it seems a lot of them do, should I get a new doctor?
  6. I stumbled across this NIH article which examines the connection between intestinal health, depression and acne. It also discusses the use of probiotics topically as well as internally. http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC3038963/
  7. Hi! I've posted before about a possible hormone imbalance being the cause of my acne, but after doing some more research, I found out constipation can actually be a cause! I've dealt with constipation for the past months, having no clue it could be connected to my acne. It does make sense, though, because when I had an x-ray during a doctors visit, the doctor pointed it out to me. The constipation started around the time I stopped eating as well, so it makes sense that it would be from that. I'
  8. hey! (typing on broken tablet, will fix post later) so i was thinking about how my body only want to accept foods high in fiber, according to my sensitivity test results (fiber helps you shit more efficiently). then i remember a visit to the doctor here i found out i had chronic constipation. basically i had shit laying around my body for years. this made sens
  9. So I'm currently on month 2 and started getting constipated. Why exactly I don't know but its certainly the drug. I'm on 40 mg daily. Is constipation a serious side effect? My poop used to come out easily and was healthy looking (gross I know, sorry). But now, it takes me forever and when it comes out its just a bit and has a very loose consistency. Nothing is coming out as of lately. Do I have to stop the medication? Is it a bad sign? So far I had basically 0 side effects except dry lips
  10. ★★★Exercise Causes Constipation!★★★ One great medical myth, prevailing for 2000 to 3000 years, is that physical exercise helps in preventing and curing constipation. This false belief is still being dogmatically propagated all over the world by practitioners of Allopathy, Ayurveda and Naturopathy, and by experts in Health Education and Sports Medicine. All therapies based on this dangerous dogma are a threat to the health of many patients. I have never found any scienti
  11. As an acne sufferer for the past 20 years I finally found an explanation/ cure that's worth looking into. Acne is the result when Our body uses the skin as the last resort to eliminate waste (toxins, germs, any other unwanted stuff). That is, our body has tried to eliminate the waste/toxins through the usual channels and we have not allowed it. Our body's immune system has a few ways to eliminate germs and any unwanted harmful stuff by Sneezing, cold, fever, loose bowels. Some people will
  12. HEY! POOP! It's like my favorite thing to do! It just feels so great to go! I feel like people take it for granted! I've been pretty constipated on and off for months now! I take probiotics, very top ones, drink lots of water, but still! I just couldn't poop without force, and I always had a mucus from straining. Lately, I have been going more...at-least it's coming out, but it's so hard! An so big! I had weird pale spots in my pooooo. I fee like my bile or liver isn't functioning as good. I eat
