  1. Hiiii you guys out there. I am a 19 year old girl from Finland. I just, only a few minutes ago, took my first portion of accutane - to start my second round. The first one, six month cource, cleared me up for four months - oh geeez, the best months of my life - but after starting birth control pills somewhere around in July, I gradually started breaking out again. Since I knew it was due to my hormonal changes and the first months weren't so bad, maintainable with some 5% benzoyl peroxide cream
  2. Hi Everyone! Warning: Long Post Ahead.... So this is my first post but I felt it was necessary bc it might help others lol. I'll start off with a little background on me and my journey with acne. I've struggled with acne on and off (like 95% on) since I was 10, 11 years old, in 5th grade. I'm now 25, about to be 26. The only time it was "off" was when retin A was working when I was using it and for a few years after my 1st dose of Accutane. My acne varied between moderate to severe; when

    2Nd Round

    The first round was very good, absolutely cleared my skin, no acne on my back and face. But several months later oiliness slowly started to come back and some mild acne too. 1,5 year has passed, I decided to start the second course. It's the end of the 2nd week on Accutane now and I have some questions. The problem is that it doesn't work the same like it was on the 1st round. My face is still a little bit oily and there's almost no flakiness. On the first round my skin became very dry in 2
  4. Dear all In May 2013, I started an accutane treatments that lasted 9 months, ending in January 2014. Within 2 months, my oily skin returned and breakouts resurfaced. Granted my skin is better, but not as good as I wanted it to be. During this period I moved from Switzerland to the Netherlands and changed dermatologist. She suggested a second accutane treatment, which started at the beginning of June 2014 (about 20 days ago). However, this time, the treatment is a different dosage: lower than
  5. Hey everyone, So I went on accutane January of 2016, and finished 5 months later in June. My skin was so perfect for about a full year, and slowly it started to come back. After a long and upsetting battle between my skin and self confidence, I’ve decided to go on it again. Something I regretted last time was not keeping track of my progress, as it can be extremely disappointing to not see daily improvement. I plan to track my side effects, and just my skin in general on here! hopefully a
  6. Hey, you guys. I haven't made a post on here in a while, but since I am going on Accutane for a second time, I thought I could ask for advice or tips that anyone has who have been on Accutane twice. Background: I went on Accutane (40mg + Vitamin E) for 6 months at 14. Worked amazing, loved it! I'm 17 now, and over this past summer my acne has returned. Predominately around my chin, and it's inflammatory. When back to dermatologist and she decided to put me back on Accutane (Same dosage,
  7. So after a particularly horrible year dealing with cystic acne, I went on accutane - 20mg for 4 months while I was living abroad. When I got back, I went to see my dermatologist and he said that I should go on a second round for 6 months at 40mg to make sure my acne didn't come back. I really hated how I felt on accutane, and so wanted to wait a bit to see how my skin would do. It's been 4 months since I got off accutane, and I just got another cyst on the side of my face which scared me enough
