  1. Hey! My dark spots are beginning to fade. They are still very noticeable, but I do see the improvement. I have two new pimples on my right cheek. A couple that are beginning to go away on my forehead and no active ones on my left cheek. I still have the same side effects, in addition to some new ones. My face and lips are still dry and my scalp is still itchy and flakey (although I got Selsun blue for flakey scalp, so hopefully that helps.) One of my new side effects is that I have a
  2. I have finally decided to give accutane a try. It was offered to me when I was a teen and my family wouldn't let me take it. Too many really scary side effects. Now, at 36, know that my two kiddos are all I will be having, I have decided to go for it. In my mid 20's my acne really cleared up and I was able to manage it with OTC's and makeup. In January my mother died. It was a very unexpected and stressful event. I think I experienced a type of stress my body has never experienced before.
  3. I currently finished my third week of Accutane and have developed dandruff with itchy scalp. My question is: Should I use dandruff shampoo or just highly moisturizing conditioners/hair treatments?
  4. The other night my scalp started itching really bad and it actually woke me up from my sleep.. I did hear of dry scalp as a side effect, but my hair is still oily?.. The next morning I saw a really small amount of dandruff on my head. I'm using head and shoulders to try to get rid of it and I think it's working because it doesn't really itch anymore (maybe a little).. strange. Lips are quasi-dry.. it's really not that bad yet though. I'm just using Aquaphor once or twice a day, but I can't e
  5. Accutane can cause massive shedding. If you experience that, and you are a guy, here's how you can slow down the shedding : - take Saw Palmetto (it slowed down my hair loss from 200+ hair/day to 20-30/day - take vitamin D3 (im taking about 5000i.u./EOD.....it dries my hair alot, and lowers the itchy scalp, and lowers the hair loss up to a point, but doesnt stop it) Here's a connection i tried to make about Accutane hair loss and hormones : I, for example, also got E.D. from Accutane.
  6. Quick update after finishing 2 weeks: dry lips my face feels rough and if I rub it, skin will come off but it is not visibly flaking off my arms and legs feel itchy which I'm guessing is from my skin becoming dry acne seems a tad worse than normal but nothing incredibly mortifying sensitive to sun - took a 4 hour car trip with only SPF 15 moisturizer on my face and I got sunburned seeing dandruff and experiencing itchy scalp
  7. So this is my 2nd week ( a little more actually), even though the side effects are kicking in I am still very excited! I got 3 new pimples yesterday even though things were getting so much better the week before, no white heads just (kind of) small red bumps. It seems like no matter how much I moisturize (i literally moisturize at least 5 times a day) my skin is still dry, yet its bearably dry and thankfully its not pealing or anything. I am currently using 2 creams, mainly I am using the c
  8. Okay....this might sound a bit gross, sorry, but I've been taking isotretinoin/accutane for 11 days now, side effects have been pretty standard - dry skin, chapped lips, big ol' breakout, but my scalp has been a bit itchy. I've never had trouble with dandruff or a dry scalp before, so I'm pretty convinced it's the drug. Has anyone else had this?
