You've made the right choice, after all you don't really want permanent skin damage from all those cysts. Ive done two courses of accutane and both of them worked while i was on them and although the acne came back it never came back as bad as it was before and it is easier to control with normal treatments.

In addition to the supplies that you have already purchased, i suggest that you add in

1) Acetyl L-Carnitine, which is an amino acid that dramatically reduces the muscle aches and stiffness that you get with accutane (i suggest that you look this up on pubmed ( as there has been scientific studies done on this

2). take zinc (15mg) (at a different time of day to the accutane) this enhances the nuclear receptor binding of retinoids (which is where retinoids like accutane act in skin cells (or keratin cells and sebocytes)), these binding sites are called zinc-fingers.

3. Dont use any acids at all on your face, period.

4. Take the accutane with an oil like flax seed oil (and/or evening primrose), which will help the absorption of the drug (accutane is fat soluble) and help to moisturise you skin internally.

I hope this helps...please keep posting to keep us informed about how you are doing...good luck
