  1. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 9th month on ACCUTANE 40mg (24,female,cystic acne on both cheeks, jawline and chin) Skin type - normal Side effects - *Absent minded *Feeling numb emotionaly UPDATE - Excellent month. No cysts. Although had few 2-3 pimples. Nothing serious thou. My skin is so calm and nice to me. Not much side effects either. No joint or muscle pain (taking vitamin d3 and calcium regularly)
  7. Hi Guys, I'm new to this website. So basically, I always had mild to moderate acne since I was 15 (I'm 21 now). Nothing worked for me. I tried cleansers, masques, changing my diet, the regimen, etc. but nothing seem to have permanent results. I went to my dermatologist and he prescribed me doxycycline (100 mg) and my acne was under control. Now evertime I stopped using the antibiotic, my acne would flare up again. So my doctor put me on Accutane (40 mg a day) and I'm on day 6. I was afraid to ex

    End Of Week 5

    Hello All, So, I feel confident enough to post a pic...before my roaccutane treatment began (check out that STONKER on my foehead!) and after 5 weeks. Happy to say that the results are great ! Still on the same skincare regime and not experiencing any flakiness on my face or dryness - so Body Shop's Vitamin E range is perfect for me. Seeing my derm this week for my first follow up appt, quite excited to hear her advice on my prescription, if she'll bump me up to 60mg a day. Still no
  9. 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
  10. 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
  13. Hello, In a nutshell, I'm considering a ridiculous fourth course of Roaccutane at a reduced dosage to hopefully defeat my diabolically persistent acne problem, and am interested in your thoughts. Here is my background; I'm 30, male, with mild cystic acne. I've battled acne on and off since I was around 15-16 (i.e. around half my life). Although my acne is much less severe than it used to be, most likely due to my Roaccutane treatments, it is still bad enough to cripple my confidence. Altho
  14. At the peak of my obsession, my daily routine included scrubbing my face with Clean & Clear “Advantage Clear & Soothe Daily Scrub” and “Morning Energy, Shine Control Daily Facial Wash”, wiping my face with Clean & Clear “Shine Control Daily Facial Lotion” and Neutrogena “Blackhead Eliminating Cleansing Lotion”, moisturising with Neutrogena “Pink Grapefruit oil-free moisturiser”. Basically, if a product was in the Boots acne section, I had tried it. If it had the words “Daily” or
  15. So my roaccutane journey begins here. I have hesitated to take this but I though I'll give it a go , sick and tired of myself and trying to treat acne for 4-5 years. So Today 04/12/13 I have gotten my tablets from the pharmacy it's a 2 month dose , If all goes well I will receive another 2 month dose after and my treatment should be done in 4 month since my dose is high "70mg" wasn't so sure about that but I hope I won't get too many side effects and that I can carry on training. Day 1/122 :
  16. Hi all, Has anyone ever got a tattoo whilst taking isotretinoin? If so, what dosage were you on etc. Did the medication affect your tattoo design? Did you encounter any problems?? All/any stories would be much appreciated. Many thanks Rob
  17. Hello I am writing a research paper regarding Roaccutane for a nursing degree and was hoping I could get some data! As an acne sufferer I have always pondered going on Roaccutane but have never filled my prescription... It would be much appreciated if anyone who has taken Roaccutane before could answer 10 questions regarding their experience on the medication. The main answers I'm looking for are if you were happy with your results and if you noticed side effects.https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/X
  18. soooo im new to this, i decided to sign up because it's just really refreshing to see other people understanding how i feel because in real life nobody i know does. feel really embarrassed and bitter even about typing anything on here just because i hate the fact that my life has become this and i also hate anyone knowing that i suffer with this condition because it's humiliating, even though nobody on here knows me. but whatever.. over the past few months i've been feeling so low and as patheti
  19. Hello! I am currently on my first week of treatment with isotretinoin. I am moving sometime in the next few months from the US to Ireland and may not be finished with my course. How difficult is it to obtain isotretinoin/roaccutane in Ireland? I know they don't have iPledge, which is a plus, but are doctors reticent to prescribe it there, even if you are mid-course? Do you still do the monthly liver/triglyceride blood tests? Is it difficult to get an appointment with a dermatologist? I will
  20. Hi i've been on accutane for 2 months now. Last week my dose got increased from 40 mg to 100mg. Im now experiencing really bad breakouts all over my face including areas i never had spots before like my forehead. I also have 3 weepy sores on my face too. Im due to see my doctor on monday so will express my concerns to him then. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced this before too? X
  21. Hi, Just a quick question. I've read a lot about taking your Roaccutane tablets with the right types of food. What's the best type of food to take the tablets with to improve how effective they are? Thank you S

    Roaccutane

    Hello I've begun the journey of taking Roaccutane. It's been 18 days so far and I'm slowly noticing a few results, the acne hasn't disappeared just yet... I was just wondering how long does it take until you see major results? I heard it could be as early as the 1st month or not until the end (6th month) I'd be happy to hear your comments xo xo
  23. One week in now guys and still...not much to report!! nooo!! im bein really impatient i guess i feel fine, the initial breakout is not unmanagable, my hair is getting a little dry now and my lips also (i notice it at night) but other than that not much more to report!! Only one week has gone by though so i am obviously not expecting much. On New years eve we went to a pub. Obviously I can't drink - I had two small glasses of wine with water inbetween as my derm said 1-3 units a day is allowed b

    Day 30.... Progress!

    Hi, It's been a while since my last blog so thought I'd update today. It's been 30 days (well over actually but my derm messed up my appointments so I've had a 4 day break from the roaccutane) and I have my first follow up appointment today where I'll have my blood test and pregnancy test as well. Apart from the dry lips, which I mention a lot, and generally dry skin I have only really suffered with the occasional nose bleed and hardly any other side effects lately. My face is looking

    Week 26 40Mg

    Early but i have to update I knew it, in the last 2 days, maybe or maybe not coincidently since starting my period, I developed two spots on my forehead and a cyst on my chin. My pores look more visible as well Althoughh the cyst and 1 spot on my forehead have quickly deflated with the help of some bp so that's good It's really strange before accutane I would usually only get acne around the middle of my cycle, since starting accutane my skin breaks out pretty much non stop, whenever, whereve
