    Day 20

    Day 20 - Entry's gonna be long. Topic 1: minocycline side effects Topic 2: what I picked on my face Topic 3: pimple updates Topic 4: vitamin c horrors Skip around haha ----------- I started off today feeling super tired and very crappy. I was a bit depressed, especially about my skin. It felt hopeless... I didn't know why but then I realized its probably my antibiotics every since I switched from solodyn brand to the generic minocycline, I started feeling super tired... more than I
  2. I have been on accutane 40 mg 1 a day for two days. The first day I experienced mild brain fog and pressure headaches but I thought it was just the drug kicking in. Today I have experienced fatigue, brain fog, loss of vision, nausea, loss of balance, and extreme pressure headaches. Do I find a way to combat this while still taking accutane, or do I stop accutane altogether. My acne started in high school my senior year. I found that I have had leaky gut and candida in my gut. I have been eating
  3. I've been on Solodyn + Ziana for about 2 weeks now for my moderate acne and in the first week I only had a few headaches and lightheadedness but starting with the second week to now I've been extremely exhausted, having to take naps everyday but my headaches have gone away... For those who have taken Solodyn, does the fatigue usually go away with time?
  4. Hi, I have suffered from moderate to severe acne since I was about 16 and am now 21. I have taken doxycycline pills, benzoyl peroxide cream (which I still use on occasion- I am unsure whether it actually helps or is irritating and drying out my skin too much) and now take anti-androgens. I have taken antidepressants for about a year until recently as well. Since January, I have pretty much eliminated dairy products from my diet as I've heard multiple times that it is good for acne. My skin h
  5. (Ugh, second time writing this out as I refreshed the page by accident. Sorry this is LONG!) Female, 26 Medications I take YAZ - for about 3 years now Vit D3 Spironolactone (100 mg 50am/50pm) I'm on day 5, with little change. A quick summary of what has happened: The beginning of this year I started breaking out badly in cystic spots along the jawline. previously I had been perfectly clear on YAZ and topicals. (Trentinoin .025%). I just attributed the breakout to stress a
  6. Hi y'all! I am on day 34 and have some new developments from the last couple of weeks. I now have muscle soreness for very minimal amounts of exercise. I worked out for 20 minutes yesterday and today I feel like I ran a marathon! I also have achy joints and some weird back pain going on- it feels more like a piercing pain in the middle of my spine. In addition, I have had 2 8-hr migraine headaches over the last 2 weeks that did not respond to water or ibuprofen. I left work early yesterday
  7. I've been on accutane for about two months and I'm extremely tired all the time. The fatigue usually hits me in the afternoon, and it's making it really hard for me to finish homework and I sometimes fall asleep unexpectedly. I basically cannot lie down without falling asleep. Is this normal, and is there anything I can do to stop it? Due to headaches, my dermatologist lowered my dosage from 40mg one day / 60mg the other day to 40 mg / 20 mg, but I've only been on that dosage for a few days and
  8. I'm at the point now where I think managing acne (and depression, but especially this) has had a huge, crappy impact on my life...specifically, ability to focus and energy levels (so, everything). In a given day, I drink four cups of moderately strong homebrewed coffee. (More.) I eat well, I take a multivitamin, I'm on 50 mg of Aldactone (have been since September 2009, weaning self off of it because I suspect it was causing hair loss, hyperkalemia, severe fatigue and perpetual muscle pain) a
  9. Okay, so i have been on accutane for 22 days and felt great for the most part. My skin and lips are still dry and I am applying lotion multiple times per day. In addition, my skin seems to require more exfoliation than usual- if I dont do it I look like a mess when I go out. However, I am not wearing make-up at all these days and my face has a nice shiny glow. I am extremely sensitive to light. Just riding in the car on a sunny day gave me a sunburn. I am going to need to get a more face frie
  10. Can anyone let me know of their experiences with eye drops and Accutane? I work on a computer all day long so therefore I'm not helping my eyes while one Accutane. I even use to have problems with red eyes due to working on the computer BEFORE I even started Accutane. I've taken several measures to reduce the harm to my eyes such as warming my screen's color, drinking more water and trying to take frequent breaks from the computer. Although this works to some extent, sometimes I get caught up an
  11. I am an anemic that drinks copious amounts of coffee, is moderately active, and takes iron OTC. I just started taking 100 mg Bactrim after 200 mg Doxycycline. Part of the reason I'm so tired is the heat, but I've noticed in general that my energy has gone down severely. Is this going to stop at some point? What can I do? (I can't take a b-complex because I've noticed biotin and all supplements have broken me out for probably the last two years.)
  12. I have been all over the internet trying to help my son and have only gotten more and more despondent and angry. My son took Accutane and is damaged. I was hopeful it would resolve after he got off of it, but more and more cascading issues are arriving. This drug caused Brain Damage. It is not "side effects", side effects are a upset tummy and a need for chapstick. No, brain and body damage is what this causes and the side effects are far, far more widespread than we all know. No, your Doctor wo
  13. Hi all, I am a 24 yr old female and I've been struggling with severe cystic acne for 5 years now. Previously I was on topical treatments, years of antibiotics, and spironolactone. I am on month 5 of my first accutane course and have seen amazing results! The first three months were horrible in regards to my acne but I am very happy with my current results. I am on 80mgs a day and have discussed doing at least two more months with my dr. Although I have been super fortunate in
  14. poll to determine if there is a connection between those who PMO frequently and have done so all there life up until and after their course of Accutane which left them severely weakened in health.
