    Day 3

    A few pimples came to the surface, but this seems pretty normal since I pretty much always have pimples coming and going 24/7. I'm just hoping this is my skin purging the bad stuff and then it'll start to clear up! I'm still not that dry - I MAY be producing a little less oil? I just don't feel the need to blot my face with a tissue in the bathroom nearly as often and I feel like I don't look as shiny as I used to. I think my lips might be a little dry? Still not a huge difference, I'm just tryi
  2. So about 20 days on accutane i was at the gym and i was deadlifting and i herniated a disk in my lower back. Since then i have had extreme pain in my entire back. When i pick up weights and drop them the pain is excruciating. I had to get off accutane after 2 1/2 months cause the pain was so bad as well as the joint pain when i attempted to take it easy while working out. Every second of my day, i am overwhelmed with pain in my back wether im sitting or standing. Please help me, its been 3 month
  3. It's been a little over 2 months now of Retin A and I'm really happy with how it's going now. My skin adjusted nicely and I'm looking forward to seeing it improve even more with continued use. I cover a lot more details in the video below if you are interested. Also, my diet has been very beneficial for my skin. Between my clean eating and using Retin A, my skin is in wonderful shape right now. Retin A Micro .1% - 8 Week Update: My Acne Story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz8
  4. 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

    10 days with Diane-35

    It´s soon to post big changes. I´ve only been 10 days with it! The only thing i started to notice is a headache coming out of nowhere... hope it´ll go away soon. And i think i´m gaining weight? I´m in good shape, and i do exercise often but... it´s just my feeling about it! I will continue posting. Thanks for reading! (Also, for the acne, i´m taking Treclinac, a topical form of antibiotic and vitamin A that my derm prescribed me... it worked amazing on my skin! I use it at night. The only bad
  6. So, the morning of day 2. I feel that to have side effects from one dose would be pretty somatic. I do feel my emotions last night were a little dampened but that's a good thing as BPD throws your moods all over the place, for them to be numbed felt nice as I felt calm even if a teeny bit blue. Nothing bothersome. I have woken up today with a little headache which is unusual, but I think maybe due to not drinking water through the night. I woke up really thirsty but was too tired to lean over an
  7. Has anyone else experienced a loss of appetite? I'm seriously nauseated and thinking about food makes me sick to my stomach. I'm on day 5 and I feel horrible!
  8. 1st month 60mg/day 2nd month 80mg/day So i was doing my 2nd course of accutane and only did 40 days of it for various reasons. In the past 28 days i only got a little dot on my cheek, and i stopped accutane 16 days ago and my face is still scaly and ashy, my lips are still a bit swollen and i have this dry skin itch below my lower lips that won't go away, i have to slather that small part like crazy during night and when i wake up it's dry. I haven't seen my dermatologist in over a mont

    Day 1

    DAY 1: It's Sunday, October 5th, 2014, I'm a 19 year old male and have been after struggling with moderate acne for years. I've tried the following regimes to try and combat the acne, none of which have yielded any success: Zaiana Tazorac Aczone Doxycycline Azrythromicin Salicylic Acid/Glycolic Acid wipes Other products Thus, a couple weeks ago I became incredibly frustrated by a new breakout and consulted with my dermatologist about starting Accutane (Clavaris is the brand I'm taking).

    Hello

    Hello Guys, so I have started taking Accutane about 5 weeks ago. As I am very interested in the topic and have been reading a log of logs lately I thought it might be nice to share my experience with you. First, a little bit about myself. I am 16 years old, I am from Germany (so pardon any grammar mistakes) and I have been suffering under acne since I was about ten. I have had all levels of acne. It started out really light and kept getting worse until I was 14. Then it went back and for a fe
  11. Hey everyone! So it's basically day 8 for me of my claravis journey and I'm having really bad back pains. I don't know if it's from sleeping in a bad position or if it's from the drug, because back pains are a side effect of the drug. If it is from the drug, are those side effects supposed to come that early? I have no idea to be honest. It hurts a lot and I'm not used to having such an intense pain in my back. It's especially inconvenient that I have these back pains because tomorrow I'll be wa
  12. Today was my 1 month check up. My liver function was elevated since last time... that makes me a little nervous. They didn't really say too much about it and all I saw on the sheet was that it said +40 ? I still got my prescription for this month I'm just praying it isn't eleveated too much and I can continue to take this for the full 5 months. Today my derm gave me 6 shots of cortisone. 5 in some larger nodules and 1 in my lip? The corner of my lip is really cracked so she gave me a cortiso

    Day 11

    Day 11, oddly enough my side effects seem to have improved rather than gotten worse? Has this happened to anyone else? This worries me. My dry eyes that were terrible just 2 days ago are now manageable, my dry nose is barely bothering me at all and my dry lips are mild compared to what they were 2 days ago. I know I should probably be extrememly happy but i'm more concerned that it isn't working as well? As far as acne goes I've gotten another little white head on my jaw line... nothing ma
  14. I have moderate but persistent acne, so my dermatologist prescribed me accutane (isotretinoin). For the first month I was on 40mg; the second, 60; and now currently, 80mg. The first and second month were fine--or must I say, tolerable? I had dry lips, skin, hair, and my lower back ached a little. My skin cleared up a lot, but I was still breaking out a bit. My derma suggested I go up a dose (80mg). I'm currently 20 days into this new dose. I was fine the first 10 days, my skin looked so good
  15. Intro This is my Accutane (Isotretinoin) experience so far. I am a 24 year old male and have been struggling with moderate (persistent) acne and oily skin since the age of 17. The only medication that provided a temporary remission of the acne was Retin-A. But I believe my skin has become accustomed to the medication. I have been re-searching on Accutane since last year, however the horror stories posted online kept me away from the medicine. After further re-search I decided to self prescri
  16. Has anyone dealt with short term memory loss as a side effect on Spironolactone? I definitely notice it more while drinking (yes, obviously alcohol can do that), but it's way more severe than before I started taking Spironolactone.
  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. So, I've been on Accutane 20mg for 5 weeks and I'm really just making this log for others to see and to show you guys any improvements and to get advice from you guys. So far my side effects have been there but have been manageable; dry lips, dry eyes causing them to go red, back pain and slight depression but not too bad just the odd sign and feeling of social anxiety. Here are pictures I've been taking to document my experience so far: Day I started Accutane 20mg Second week Fourth
  19. From the album: BEFORE & AFTER ACCUTANE

    You can see the dryness starting to set in with my hair & skin- this is about 6 mnths post tx.
  20. [side note- I'm new to this place so bear with me and forgive my mistakes, not even sure if I'm making a post properly hahaha..] A little history about my experience with acne- I'm 23 and never had issues with acne throughout middle or high school. I started getting my issues more in my 'young-adult' years, it went from mild acne to painful cystic acne. Compared to many others my acne is/was quite mild but I couldn't seem to be clear.. ever! So I've tried everything under the sun (just
  21. I've been on 1 40mg accutane pill a day for only 3 days now and today I began to experience extreme dizziness and felt very unstable, it has calmed down a little bit now, but I still feel slighly dizzy. Should I be worried about this? Should I take another pill tonight or wait until I can talk to my doctor? (It is the weekend) Thanks
  22. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  23. I'm 28 and have been on acne meds for a very long time. I was on and off Accutane from age 18 to 22--two cycles of small doses. Since 2009 I have been either on aldactone (worst drug--regret taking it, because it helped with body acne but not hormonal) and antibiotics. I have gotten nasolabial fold pimples in the same places and so often that I have finally started developing scars for the first time. My skin is scaly, discolored, and covered with whiteheads for three weeks per month. It has
  24. Im on mo.2 of accutane and am taking 80mg a day - 1 in the morning 1 at night. its a pretty high dose in my opinion, but whatever works... However, I'm getting some real possible side effects now. I got 3 nose bleeds in one day, I'm having moderate back pain, feeling weak, and every part of my body BUT MY FACE decides to lock in moisture. My face is peeling and scabbing like no other. On top of that, even though I'm constantly lubricating my lips with chapstick ("carmex healing" and other va
  25. So I am in the middle of my second month and I have been managing my dry skin side effects pretty well until the past couple of day. My lips have gone beyond getting dry and cracking. They are now at the point where they have become raw. If there is any area with dry skin that peels off, it instantly starts to bleed. It's not the normal dry and crack kind of bleeding. I used to be able to peel the dead skin off without a problem and even exfoliate my lips but now if I do anything, they bleed.
