  1. So, this is my very first post on this forum. I sure wish it were under better circumstance... The Back Story: I have been suffering with acne for about 7 years, and it has gotten progressively worse. I have tried all kinds of over-the-counter things to combat the issue, tried Proactive, & I own a Clarisonic brush. I've been put on Tazorac, Minocyclin & Doxycycline. None of this has helped much at all. Recently: So when I went to a new dermatologist she recommended that I begin
  2. I'm really in need of Accutane. I almost had it from my last dermatologist, but my insurance didn't cover it. I've tried everything else. I'm going to be on Medicaid soon, hoping that it'll be able to cover the cost of it, but it's considered 'cosmetic' It gets to the point where it's really messing with my mental state. Which I think should be taken into account. I e-mailed pharmacuetical companies, and most of them to not offer help for Accutane. Are there any other patient assistance programs
  3. A Bit About My Acne: I started getting mild acne at the age of 13; as I got older I started getting under the skin cysts and my acne became more moderate. I’m 20 now and my acne severity has lessened with the help of the pill and creams, although my skin is still not where I would like it to be. My First Dermatology Appointment: After a bad break out last month I begged my Doctor to refer me to a dermatologist. The waiting list in my area to see a dermatologist is 8 months, so I ended up
  4. Hello, I live in Canada and I am interested in purchasing some of the acne.org products, however, it when I am choosing my shipment method it says, "UPS shipments to Canada have been incurring large brokerage fees. To avoid these charges, you may wish to choose an alternative shipping method.". So does this mean I will have to pay more money on top of the shipping costs? Can anyone give me some clarification and also if you also live in Canada, did you have to pay those fees? Thank you so mu
  5. I wanted to give a little note about insurance. I pay $200 per month in insurance, which is a little pricey. However, I only pay $10 for my Accutane prescription and $20 for each derm visit. I have Cigna Premium, which is more comprehensive than others, but I really think it is worth it. Accutane is really expensive!
  6. I returned from holiday to have my condition get progressively worse for the next 3 weeks. I had multiple gp visits where I was essentially freaking out. My triple cyst had full on ruptured and burst and I could feel it painful and pulsating as if it had a life of its own. It was over an inch wide and 2/3 inch tall and puffy. Now this is where I lost confidence in the Nhs in treatment of non life threatening issues. The story; After my 3rd gp visit I was in despair, they had given me a
  7. So, I had a dermatologist appointment today as it was a one-month checkup after starting doxycycline. Let me say, my face looks no better as it may honestly look a little worse. Anyways, I was trying to be hopeful as my dermatologist seems to think this acne will certainly go away. We were talking about once the acne is gone and what I can do for my acne scars (because I have many and my face looks like a mess). Then, she started saying laser treatment would be the best option and work well.
  8. I finally visited a private dermatologist. The initial consultation was £200, the blood work was £200 and the medicine was £50. I could have had the blood tests done on the NHS but I felt like I had waited long enough. At this point I would say my acne was very red and my face was very greasy. The derm prescribed me antibiotics for 2 weeks before starting accutane to prevent a bad initial flare up. was then given 40mg a day for a month and told to have another checkup then. For the first 2 w
  9. I forgot to add this in my last post! For whatever reason, my derm wants me to start taking 90mg a day for my last 3 months rather than the 80mg I have been doing. I will start my day with a 40mg pill, take a 10mg pill in the middle of the day, and then another 40mg pill at night. Seems a bit unneeded, but I am assuming it's what is best for me. I didn't question it like I should have, it makes me worry that the pills aren't giving the outcome she thought they would. This is also going to be a p
