Question Sick of the Stress..

My parents have decided to put me on Sotret(Accutane), but I'm leaving for Mexico in two months and I'm kind of scared about the sensitivity to sunlight. I really would rather start Sotret now and not have all the crappy side effects my senior year, or by prom this year. I'm getting so worked up in this, that the stress alone is making my acne even worse. Right now I'm taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen lo, and that helps to control my acne to a point, but it isn't cheap(about $50 a month, which is alot for a teen with no job). I would probably be better off to just start Accutane now instead of spending money for Ortho and then Accutane on top of it. Does someone whos used Accutane previously have any suggestions?

Would maybe skipping Sotret that week help?

Re: Sick of the Stress..

Have you every tried the regular ortho tri cyclen. I was on it for about two years and had the best complexion ever! I got off it for a while but when i tried to get back on it i couldn't stop vomiting. Some people don't get sick from it though.
