All you people who have found success with Accutane

Alright, I got a question for everybody who's skin has cleared up because of Accutane. Do you guys control your diet? I mean, I have pretty severe acne, but when I watch what I eat, like avoiding sugar, dairy, and wheat, my skin looks like I just have mild acne. Right now since I'm home for summer, it's pretty easy to eat like that, but once I return to college in the fall, I'm afraid that my face is going to get a lot worse because of the stress and bad diet habits. So back to my original question, if you eat junk but are clear from accutane, will you breakout? Thanks

Re: All you people who have found success with Accutane

You're right it is what you eat, no greesy food such as eggs and french fries, no soda's and dairy products and your good to go. I'm trying to watch the greesy food, i'm ok w/ dairy foods. Also I heard somewhere people should eat according to their blood type. That would help tremendously! I have never tried accutane, it must work though. I'm going to try another product that should be at my door step by monday

I tried Accutane several years ago! Best thing I ever did. Prior to accutane I tried everything including changing my diet. Nothing worked. Now approv 4 yrs after A can eat anything & am still clear!Good luck!

I am currently on accutane, and still am very strict with my diet. My derm says this helps you have a better reaction to accutane.

Not really. I took Accutane from Nov 04-Apr 05. My skin looks great.

Re: All you people who have found success with Accutane

i am on accutane, my skin look great, or will when the red spots go away, but i am clear. i do watch my diet, but mostly b/c i've had cholesterol problems from the tane. i'm still quite afraid to eat junk food since i used to have such severe reactions to it, esp soft drinks for some reason. how i wish i could enjoy an ice cold pepsi w/out fear! *sigh*

I still eat junk once in a while and did throughout my accutane treatment. I've been off accutane since Sept. 04 and haven't had any problems.
