    Accutane what to expect






    Right guys iv finally been prescribed accutane by a dermatologist! I'm very happy about it I weigh right now 83kg 5'8 she is starting me of on 40mg a day then up to 80mg a day last 3 months if I can tolerate.

    Iv had acne for a while I only get it on my back it's never been really bad it's persistent tho and my ex girlfriend convinced me to come off gear when I was with her and I had a breakout and it was the worst it's been and never really recovers from that,

    That was about 5 months ago.. If I tan a lot it masks the acne very well to the point it's not noticeable really but when I stop it comes back.


    Anyway just wondering what to expect I know there's loads if mixed opinions out on the net as always have any of use had much sucsees with it? iv purposely been trying to make it worse the last week because I was afraid I wouldn't get it anyway Iv got it now and can't wait to run it for 6 months should hopefully clear me up for summer!!!

    With regular blood tests I'm afraid to run anything other the test as I don't want my liver enzymes to get crazy incase they stop my course as for alcohol I don't drink so it's no problem..

    Let me know how this worked for u guys and also how long should I wait to see results ... I'm going to pick it up on Monday!! Can't wait
    Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not you go out and look for a successfull personality an duplicate it

    Haven't tried that yet myself but I hope it works well for you. Captn mentioned in a post that he uses Acnedren (BLR) year round for acne control and it does do a great job for me too. Maybe you could try them both to see which one gives you better control. Good luck bro.

    Accutane can be some nasty stuff if you don't monitor your bloodwork. I use Minocycline year round and does pretty good for me.

    I ran it for 6 months didn't have a single side effect. Cleared all my acne and is still working.

    Accutane is a miracle drug and you don't need much. 20-30 mg daily is PLENTY.

    I also have experience with it, was on it in my younger years and had no problem on it. I believe I was on it for 5 months; it truly works wonders on acne.

    20mg might work for some. I've been on 40mg for almost 5 months, it's not clearing up. I wanted to up it but I'll be running orals so I'll leave it where it's at. I get blood tests done every month and everything is really good. I wasn't even taking any liver protection for the first few months and the numbers were fine.

    Start at 20mg/day and go from there.


    As for sides:

    -super dry skin, have cetaphil on hand
    -have a topical corticosteroid on hand, you'll most likely get eczema somewhere at some point.
    -Vaseline will be your best friend for you lips and the inside of your nose.
    -Your eyes might get dry, get moisturizer drops for them.
    -At higher doses you might feel it in your joints.
    -The voices inside your head will start talking more than normal..

    Doctor prescribed and monitored, yup. I've been prescribed quite a few times, and used researchstops stuff in the past successfully (All of their stuff I've used has been great).

    It's all good for now, some places very close to where I lived recorded the lowest temperatures on the planet for a bit so needless to say I'm wearing a lot of layers.

    I've used research stops iso at up to 30 mg per day and while it did help with the back, still did not clear up shoulders or sternum completely. I know it works , lips dry, I normally never need anything even in the winter, and skin definitely is dry and no oil.

    Want to try something else after this cycle.

    Part of the shoulders may be because of the night sweats on this cycle.

    accutane works well i was on it for months! My dermatologist prescribed it to me for my back. what i will say though is that it left some nasty scars and bumps on my back. Maybe i will go on it again after another visit to the dermatologist. Hopefully she has some answers GL

    Use bio oil you can get it at costco it is amazing for reducing the visibility of scars. It takes a few bottles but it's nice not havering to look at old war rounds from years of acne battles

    Add cold pressed coconut oil to you're diet and use it as a body scrub. It's got some serious anti-microbial properties.

    I've just picked up 6 months worth! For only ?7.50! Would of cost me a fortune I I bought online and I know this stuff is legit! anyway I'm going to get a blood test Friday to see what my liver values are before I start the course! Ironic thing is my acne has gotten better on it's own last few days but it's always like tht comes and goes but it's persistent and it's time to get rid!


    So can anyone tell me when I should start to notice it working? And when did use start getting the dry lips dry skin ect... I'm tempted to tan heavily for a week or 2 before I start!

    7.50 for 6 months worth?? Either you robbed someone or your stuff is fake. There's no way you can get legit accutane for that cheap, even research grade stuff.


    You should start noticing the dry skin within two weeks. Your acne might flare up for the first month and than it should go away for a long long time
