Re: Roaccutane

well first i went to the doctor because i had been on tetracycline and erythromcin but they werent workin well i tried these out for about a year all together then i went back to see the doctor and he just refered me to a dermotoligist i waited about 4 months there is a very long list to see them here anyway i went to the dermotoligist and they give me blood tests about week later got my blood tests back they were fine and he prescribed roaccutane just started today so dont no weather it will work or not and there is no diffrence between roaccutane and accutane just diff brand name for diff countrys i think just same though

Re: Roaccutane

hello, three of my colleagues were on accutane 10 months from now and they had really good results. I would absolutely like to start accutane but i'll wait for june which is my holiday coz if i start it now on the first month acne flares up and i hate it during work. i was on diane 35 last year...initially on my 3 months i also have clear skin with occasional zits, my hair was not that oily anymore and i don't have to wash it everyday. Satisfied with the results i stopped for one month and guess what acnes even graver than before just start popping up everywhere i've done everything but cystic acnes just popped out every week. terrible....
