im on accutane day 7 i take 2 tablets day 20mg which ive got very dry lips and a very sore back lol tell me if u get a bad back just im not sure if its the tablets or not ive done nothing else for it to happen but on day 3 i had a break out of spots mostly on my chin and on the side of my nose they almost gone now though hopfully they wont come back
I went to get Accutane today. I am a military dependent so I went to the hospital on base. How hard was it for you guys to get Accutane? My skin has cleared alot since my early 20's but I am still getting a few cysts a month that dont go away for weeks and they leave those lovely pock marks. I have tried everything under the sun. I went straight in there and did not beat around the bush, I told him I want Accutane and I'm not taking anymore antibiotics. He said that no one there was lisenced to prescribe Accutane and had to refer me to someone else. Then I got the lecture on how "bad" and "dangerous" it is.
I know so many people that have taken it and not one single person regrets it. So now I have to wait for the insurance to go through then I get to see a regular dermatologist. I really hope they dont try to say my skin is not bad enough. I have scars everywhere. Pits and red marks.
Thanks for letting me put in my 2 cents. Hopefully next time I post I can say that I have Accutane.
well at first i was taking tetracycline but didnt do any good so went back to the doc and he changed it to erythromicin that did work either i wash 2 times a day and apply bp cream 2 times a day the bp works on my face but i have really bad acne on my back and nothing works for that so i went to the doc again and he refered me to a dermotoligist then he put me on accutane which i was glad because ive heard it clears it all up but yes it does have severe side effects some of which im starting to feel lol but if u want accutane a doctor cant prescribe it to u it has to be a derotoligist a course of treatment lasts 4-6 months ive got long way to go yet lol
thanks..good luck to you all too. It was so easy for me to get on accutane. I got lucky and got a derm appointment today, went in, and immediately the doc told me that my acne was too severe for anything else to work. Picked up my accutane and did my blood test. Day 1 is complete. LET THE BATTLE BEGIN.
well i have the breakout around my lips and nose area and is sore at times and ive still got them and im on day 9 now i wish they would go away do any of u no if u can use bp cream still when u are on accutane?
I am on about day 25 now on Accutane and I did get an initial breakout and still do but I've been told that its lasts for about a month or two so I am sticking in there. I really have hopes with Accutane its just getting through the tough part. I'm really dry right now but I am daily putting moisturizer on my face, body and putting lip balm on all the time. Good luck with you all that are taking it!

are u sure because scar is my only problem. I don't have any acne but If it helps then I would take it. Are you sayiing this from your own experience?? I don't want to do any peels because I have school right now. Please tell me more on how it works to remove scars??
