... Accutane works differently for everyone. For me, it took 6 months to show any improvement and 6 months after I was off of it, I found myself right back where I started....It didnt work for me. Lemon juice is a natural bleach. You should be very careful about using it, as it can not only lighten the dark spots on your face, but make white patches on your skin as well...and,... (3 replies)
... Hello! im a teenager currently on Accutane, i've been taking it for around 3 months. i see very little improvement. i get occational bloody noses, my lips are insanely dry/chaped and my face is incredibly dry. I was wondering how long it actually takes for it to clear up my face. I also see lots of dark spot and small scars. I heard lemon juice is good for dark spots. I'm... (3 replies)

... Fibbing to your doctor I don't think will benefit you since he will have all of your records at hand. I'm sure if you explain to them your frustration and concerns you will be able to get a prescription for accutane. I have been suffering from moderate acne for about five years and even though I don't get cysts, I was recently prescribed. Although, even if you can convince... (6 replies)
... I've been dealing with cystic/nodular cystic acne for about 5 years now. Absolutely nothing has worked, all of the over the counter creams, washes, and masks haven't helped one bit. I am making an appointment with a dermatologist, I know first he's going to try and prescribe me Differin, but I've already tried that and it didn't work (of course) and I refuse to start...

... You may not be in the sun while on accutane. If you do... it's recommended to use spf 45. We had to postpone the start of my son's accutane as we were just leaving for a 2-week camping trip on a river with tons of sun. My son's Doctor (Dermatologist) prescribes a 10 day antibiotic regimine that started the same day my son started accutane. He said it helps to... (6 replies)
... can i tan at all while on accutane? i dont mind cutting back from what i do now (a few timse per week), but i cant imagine stopping all together? - is the initial breakout correlated with how bad your acne already is? (ie. really bad acne, really bad initial outbreak....mild acne, mild initial outbreak?) - would i be better with low dose treatment? You cannot tan... (6 replies)

... Maybe I can start on the BC and maybe decide to back out of the actual Accutane before then. I don't see how it can hurt. I think I will see how it goes and if I calm down a bit, I will start. ... (4 replies)
... is possible doesnt mean its gonna happen, and the more you think about the side effects the more it will stress you out...im on the beginning of my 4th month of accutane now, and the only side effects ive had are chapped lips, really dry skin, and bloody snot... ... (4 replies)
... i had mild/severe acne on my cheeks and i took accutane, i am now going on my seventh month, and to be honest....it has been an emotional rollercoaster. i wouldn't say i was depressed but my emotions have been all over the place. if you don't feel comfortable taking it due to the risks i wouldn't do it. but i have had no problems only mild side effects. good luck (4 replies)

... r acne its not good...its too much on your system. deff. dont take it again during your course, but i doubt anything will happen now thats bad, just stick to the accutane and nothing else. ... (1 replies)
... Does accutane effect though patterns at all? ... (1 replies)
... iod question, but as far as the dry skin on arms and face, that is completely normal. The only thing you can do is keep moisturizer on it and once you go off of Accutane it will get better over time. You shouldn't really go on it past 5 months without taking at least a month or so break. ... (1 replies)
... Hi everyone. I have been on accutane since mid june. ... (1 replies)
... Thanks for the sage advice. :D Since the derm is fairly certain that the accutane will clear me up and the only difference in cost as to if I do this now or wait is I will save about $35 because if I wait until next year I can have my employer take out the $$$ for treatment from my paycheck with pre-tax dollars. I feel that I'm saving $80 by not filling the... (3 replies)
