  1. Hi guys, Could you suggest when I should take accutane i.e. at what time. I am on 80mg a day, have capsules of 20mg, so thats 4 a day. Thanks to all who take their time to reply
  2. Hey guys, just had a quick inquiry from those who have finished or currently going through accutane treatment for their acne. Im 20 male, and have had moderate/severe acne for a while now. I started accutane (isotretonoin) about 20 days ago to be exact and am on 20mg/day. My lips are dry and face a bit redder than usual but my skin has improved heaps already and havent had a breakout for almost 3 weeks. I was told my I.B would be within the first few weeks but it doesnt look like anythings pop
  3. I cried duing my monthly appointment on Friday. I just hate all of this and feel overwhelmed, but not suicidal or anything. I had a sinus infection this month and having a monthly cycle again (b/c IUD came out) is really hard. The hormones surging make me so touchy... Don't miss that at all! This is still an emotional rollercoaster, even though I feel better and my skin looks SO MUCH BETTER. With makeup, you can barely tell I've had any issues over the last few months. 'Tane is some strong s
  4. okay so in about a week or less ill be going to month 5 on accutane. ive been taking 20mg this whole time (sometimes i did take 40mg like once a week) but anyways im getting frustrated because i feel like by this month i should be happy with my skin and im not. ive read some posts about people going up at the end of their treatment. do you guys think i should? i dont have a derma because i got accutane from peru and i live in usa. also anybody know any good things to apply to my scars? i feel l
  5. I've started my 3rd month & just finished 1/3 out of the whole pack. Up until now my face has been rather consistent. But I've started noticing discoloration & tiny little bumps (whiteheads) is this normal?? & should I increase my dosage.
  6. Hi everyone. I started Accutane back in November. So I just started my fourth month. But I don't feel like I've been seeing really any improvement. A little here and there but really nothing major yet. I started out on 30mg, then was upped to 60 last month, and now I am up to 80 as of yesterday. My derm said she thinks there is improvement but I disagreed with her. I was just wondering how long it took all of you to start seeing results, major results that is. I might just need to wait longer bu
  7. Has anyone else here been on 120mg/day or more of accutane? I'm a 23y/o male and will be on it 5 months. was also on it when I was 17. During that course I think I was on 40 mg and my acne came back about 5-8 months after. What's your opinions/experiences of high dose accutane especially if you were on 120mg/kg? My dr said that 2mg/kg/day is the effective dose and that he has put his kids on accutane. And has also put olympic caliber athletes on accutane who saw no decrease in their per
  8. How long does it really take for zinc to take effect for acne? I am taking 50mg of chelated gluconate and it has been about a week now, and I think I may have a very tiny initial breakout ..?
