  1. SIXSIXSIXSIXSIXSIX. Okay, okay. So currently on 60mg a day. I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my derms handwriting is so illegible that the script got lost in the mail. What is with health specialist and their crappy handwriting? Hello, I'm paying you $145 a visit, can you at least make it possible for a piece of paper to get to me? Anyway, my skin's kind of meh. I've had about 5 breakouts come up this week, and all of the have been on the right side of my face. It sucks. My lips have be
  2. I've had suicidal thoughts for years and I started self harming a couple of years ago and still do it every while or so. Nobody knows about any of it and I am not planning on telling anyone about it either but I'm starting roaccutane soon for my acne and I've noticed one of the rare side effects is depression and suicidal thoughts? Should I be worried?
  3. Hi im a 17 year old girl and ive had acne for the past 4 years but ive been getting spots since ive been 11. Its the usual story, ive tried everything including zinteryt, benzoyl peroxide, duac, lymecycline, tetracyline ( been on antibiotics for the past 2 years) and also differin cream and 3 types of birth control. My acne was never on my cheeks until i started using birth control and now its only gotten progressively worse. Ive tries microgynon which gave me headaches, the implant which made t
  4. Okay - so, here's a low-down of why I'm so darned fed up with my stupid, horrible skin: - I've had acne since I was 11. - It has come and gone in severity over the years, from moderate to severe. - I used to have it all over my back too. - I have very, very pale skin and my acne has scarred, leaving me with very uneven skin tone. - I have been on every kind of prescription the doctor could give me - gels, lotions, creams, topical and oral antibiotics, dianette (The Pill), more gels/creams, and
  5. Hi all, Just took my first roaccutane, I'm on 20mg ever other day for a month then review. Trying to be positive and focus on the long term results. I am aware of all the side effects and I am avoiding the scare stories as this put me off taking it four years ago. My acne is nodulocystic with pustule and comedones (according to my dermatologist. I have stocked up on lip balm, sun cream and cleanser and moisturises. Can anyone recommend a shower gel? Hoping for some moral support on

    My Accutane Progress

    This is the first time I have posted about my accutane experience since starting treatment, I just wanted to share with other accutane users how far i've come as I enter my 4th Month, currentlt 143 days to be precise, and as you can see I haven't a single active spot on my face, it is all dominated by slight redness and left over red marks from breakouts. Overall though I am thrilled with my skin and I cant wait to finish treatment so that I can get rid of the left over marks ). Hope this helps

    Week 27 20Mg

    Well my friendss, I am down to my last two packs and I'm am tapering down to 20mg The marks left from last weeks breakout have only just healed and I know they are going become lovely new scars to add to my collection It has been so hot and sunny here in the uk and the sun always helps my skin No actives just one weird little non inflamed thinggy on my forehead next to a scar Only thing I am really annoyed about is the fact that my nose still has blackheads and still produces oil but ohhweee
  8. hello guys, I'm starting this topic again because it's actually very pertinent to understand the common symptoms between people treated with 5ar inhibitors and the so called :"Post Finasteride Syndrom" I was in my life 4 times treated with Accutane here in Europe (Roaccutane as it is name here). Each cycle last about 9 to 12 months. Now, I have 42 years old and I have very law SHBG levels and accordingly an absence of libido. I went to visit an Endocrinologist who gave me my precise levels o

    Day 40

    I guess i shouldn't say this, but it seems that my acne is slightly starting to fade out...
  10. Ok guys .. so I'm on my second week of tretinoin and my skin just gets WORSE AND WORSE and I'm crying everyday and not going out anymore . I don't have much drying anymore . I have deep cysts with no head on my left cheek . Please help and comment if you think anything can help .. I'm desperate do you think I should go on Accutane ? Or continue the retin a cream ? Or try something else ? Thank you guys so much
  11. I have just noticed in the mirror the skin on my upper back looks the best it has ever been. I always thought the look of it was just rough, greasy horrible skin. Now I realise it was tiny pimples which have all gone apart from two. I am surprised actually at the change. At last a positive. I had a massive go at my face last night as it was so lumpy and painful. Got loads out, looking little flatter today. Still need a ton of make up.
  12. Hi Just wondering what your skin was like after accutane? Did it go back to being dry or oily, or did it become normal? Thanks

    Frustrated With Derm

    Hi all,I am currently 2 months into my accutane course. I am taking 20mg/day and I weigh between 52-53kg. I visited the nhs derm last week and he said that my skin was looking good and I may only have to do a 4 month course. However he only gave my skin a brief glance and said that I had no active acne... a massive lie! that day I had 2 new cysts on my left cheek as well as some on my back, as well as blackheads on my nose, chest and back. Is my derm blind or optimistic? My acne isn't severe how

    My Face.

    Eek! So this is yet another accutane diary to add to the list... Have been deliberating whether or not to do this log, but I figured it would be a useful thing for me to look back on, plus I'll try and post pictures which will (hopefully!) prove to me my skin has changed in those inevitable moments where I question why I'm putting myself through this! My story is pretty much the same as most of you, skin has been on/off/good/bad since my teens... I'm 25, have tried everything else, a
  15. Introduction Quite new to all of this, so I'll start of by introducing myself - I'm Daniel and 18 years old. Evidently by embarking on this blog, I'm sure you've guessed I've had an uphill battle with acne, roughly since the onset of puberty. A bit about my background is that I'm of African heritage, Nigerian to be specific and born and bred in England, I've researched a bit into the epidemiology of acne relating to ethnicity, and I'm aware there are certain things my skin type is more prone to

    First day on Roaccutane

    Hey guys! So yesterday I had my appointment at the hospital to start my Roaccutane journey. I was so excited and couldn't wait to get started. After doing a pregnancy test and a long chat with the dermatologist I signed the papers regarding pregnancy and birth defects and was prescribed Roaccutane YAY. I am only on 20mg to start which is the lowest dose but said I will go up to 40mg in month two. Was just wondering if anyone who is on 20mg could let me know when to expect side effects e.g dryn
  17. Hey guys, I was thinking of booking an appointment with Sk:n who said they can offer Roaccutane. Would I be able to get it prescribed privately, then pay for prescriptions/get blood work done on the NHS?
  18. I had typical teenage acne, then a few blissful clear years in my late teens, early 20s, before my acne came back. Since then I've done two rounds of Roaccutane and am considering my third. I always just believed it would go away on it's own, and it's devastating to think that it won't. What's more, after my first round of Roaccutane my skin was *perfect*. But after the second one (it took me years to get a doctor who would even do it private) it just doesn't look the same. I was so naïve
  19. The problem being, of course, acne. Everyone on this site, whether daily contributor or lurker (I fall into the latter category) is all too familiar with this problem. We've been scarred, if not physically, then certainly emotionally. And at times, it can feel like we are alone in the problem, out in space, with no one around to sympathize with - especially when we look around and there seems to be perfect skin everywhere we look! I promise you, you are not alone. A few days ago, I blasted off i
  20. Day 1 - I am starting of at a low dosage of 10mg/day as told by my dermatologist. I just took my first pill right after a heavy meal as I heard heavy meals help the pill to absorb better. My routine consists of gentle cleansing, toner, and moisturizer day and night. I will wear a cc cream with SPF 50 if I go out. Day 2 - I have not experienced any side effects, nor has there been any change in my acne. My friends tell me to try rubbing raw potato on my skin, as it can help clear acne fast
  21. Hi! I'm dealing with severe acne since I was 13. 7 years later I have tried everything on the market for acne. I've also taken several antibiotics for acne, and tried many topical creams and nothing worked. The only thing that is left for me to try is isotretinoin. I was so happy when I heard about it, thinking it would cure my acne for good. But after reading about isotretinoin online, I have found out that it contains soya oil, and that patients who are allergic to nuts and soya can't take thi

    4th course of Roaccutane

    Hi, im about to start my 4th course of Roaccutane. I was first prescribed it when I was 18, then when I was 21, 26, and now 8 months after my last course I'm being prescribed it again. Has anyone else had to have this many courses? ive heard of people being clear after their third course but I'm really disheartened that I'm having to take it again!!!! And also the fact it's not even been a year since I last took it. Unfortunately nothing else seems to be able get rid of it. Natalie

    Done with week three !

    So I am done with week 3 and going in week 4 already ! time is passing by so fast which is a good thing while on roaccutane . So sadly I am in the bad phase now, the past week I had break outs and it seems like acne are taking longer to heal (or at least to puff down). The past week my nose was very bumpy and rough, it seems like the blackheads on my nose are coming out which made the texture of my nose very rough and weird. Even though I know I am not suppose to do any scrubbing while on ro
  24. Hi, So its almost been 2 years since I last posted on Acne.org and kind of feel that I owe the community something after it helped me so much in my time of need. First off my name is Tim and in January 2010 i started a years course of accutane finishing this January gone (2011). My dosage at first was 20mg which then rose to 60/80mg then gradually back down towards the end of my treatment. I found life on accutane very, very hard. The drug is a BITCH, but at times we need a bitch to put us
