  1. Hi everyone, I have been on Accutane for about 9 days now and have been experiencing very bad joint and muscle pain, I only do light exercise so I am sure it is not working out that is causing this. Of course was well aware of all the side effects before I started the medication but having come across this forum just after starting I am now extremely worried and wonder if I should stop the medication. It seems sad as I have been pushing for 4 years to be approved for the drug (on the NHS) an
  2. Hi all, It's been a while since I posted on here but thought i'd not only update on my situation but I also have a few questions and would love some other's perspectives or experiences. In October 2012, I was signed off form my job in recruitment for a few weeks with anxiety and depression and it was around this time that my acne got particularly bad, and has been bad ever since. I ended up handing in my notice and giving up the job altogether. I moved home for a bit and left my flat in

  4. Hi I'm Lex and I have been taking Accutane for 2 Months now. My acne has been controlled from day one of the pills, it almost feels too good to be true. I haven't experienced any serious side effects such as; depression, confusion, stress or any other mental side effects, for which I am grateful. I have some tips on the less serious side effects. I have experienced dry skin, scarring, dry hair and liver discomfort, all of which I have been able to control with my routine, which is why I thought
  5. 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

  7. I am 3 months into my second course of Accutane and I am fed up with it to be honest. So far my side-effects have been dryness of the whole body, fatigue, poor concentration/memory, irritable and moody and nightly nightmares I really want to see it through but 3 more months seems so far away and I don't want to continue like this, what do you think?

    Scared As Hell

    Hey there guys I am a 15 year old boy, been fighting with acne since 13, but just at no avail. I've gone through most(probably all) prescription drugs and procedures out there so my current dermatologist told me it's time for isotretinoin. She told me to go get the blood tests done tomorrow and if all is good, I'm starting accutane. On the first moment I heard that word spewed out of her mouth, my heart pounced because I had researched accutane on the internet before and the side effects look j
  9. Hi, I've been taking 60mg of accutane for a little less than the last two months and within the last week my side effects have dissipated. With that being said my skin has also dramatically improved within the last week as well. Both of these coincide with me starting my second perscription package of accutane. So my question is, is this a normal part of the treatment, have I gotten lucky with side affects or is this some how signally that the medication isn't working? Thanks in advanced for
  10. 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
  11. [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

    Accutane

    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
  13. Some people were asking if licorice would interfere with the anti-androgen effects of spiro and it seems the answer is no. Hirsutism and acne are both caused by DHT sensitivity and this article below talks about a study in which women with hirsutism safely took both and still had less hair growth even at a high dose of licorice. The next link is a forum where licorice's mode of action is explained. It can work "with" spiro as an androgen blocker. http://drtorihudson.com/botanicals/licorice-re
  14. Hello all I'm needing some help. Since I have a condition that leaves my acne virtually uncureable at this point, I am considering low dose Accutane. But i want more input on whether low dose is still safe for blood sugar levels. I don't have issues with it, but I am well aware of the dangers ( at least in higher doses of Accutane) which have linked cases of diabetes to the drug, which I totally believe. Please, please I am looking for experience regarding this, or even studies on the safet
  15. I’ve started using Differin again after not using it for around 6 months (I’ve currently used it for around a week). I’ve noticed that yes, my acne has decreased, but now my face has is starting to peel, it’s red in the areas I moisturize and apply the Differin to, and I heel scratchy and hot around my jaw line. This didn’t happen before, so should I stop or switch to a new lotion and wash?
  16. Hi all, Not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot (new user here) and I just wanted to ask anyone who has used the Regimen, should my skin be burning from the benzoyl peroxide? I've been using it for 2 weeks (this is my second I think) and I've just upped the dosage of BP and now my skin is starting to burn and feel tight, as if I've been badly sunburnt. Thing is, I've used BP before (years ago) and it was 5% and nothing like this happened. So is this just normal? It just burns.
  17. 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
  18. hello, i am starting this post to weigh the two ends of clindamycin phoaphate..one with nicotinamide(faceclin gel) and other with adapalene(faceclin-A gel) (adapalene for many is DIfferin) also,help people now and in future to select one topical is likely to be most effective. main aims : ## considering functions of clindamycin phosphate,nicotinamide and adapalene(differin) alone and when together? ## choosing either nicotinamide OR adapalene when with CP?why? ##do u think cli

    16 Days Post Accutane

    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
  20. 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
  21. Has anyone experienced being sick in the mornings? (i take my Accutane at night) and seem to throw up anything I have first thing in the morning. For the past few days ive noticed small specs of bright red blood and an orange like phlegm (not nice I know). Thing is, im not sure if this is due to Accutane or if it could be something else I should see the doctor for? Really don’t want the doctors to stop me taking it! Already had to go down from 60mg a day to 30mg as derm was concerned about t

    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

    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 all I have been prescribed my GP and have read that I should start seeing results after 4 weeks. It's been 5 weeks and all throughout the last few weeks I have started developing large red and angry spots which I didn't have before, they are making more unhappy with my skin then I was before. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it just be getting rid of all the rubbish from my face before I start seeing results? I don't know whether I should get another 1 month prescription of it and se
  25. 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
