Deltoro,

I think it is wonderful that you are being pro-activ about accutane. It is a serious drug with many side effects if the right pre cautions are not taken. In fact, after reading your post, I completely related to everything you did prior to going on the medicine. I am a true believer of "holistic" medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, and homeopathy. I, as well, did some liver detoxes before and currently while on accutane. But, before I went on accutane, I tried it all to discover the culprit of my acne. I eliminated sugar from my diet because I discovered I am sensitive to it, I did every "natural" remedy (homeopathy, acupuncture, fasting to eliminate all toxins) , I had 3 sessions of the smoothbeamlaser, but my acne was persistent. It was actually worsened after the smoothbeam. I am on my 10th week of accutane. And I am happy to say that I am seeing wonderful results with tolerable side effects. My lower back bothers me from time to time, but that's all at the moment. My lips are not dry at all. Maybe once per week... they get really dry and exfoliate themselves. I was very nervous about accutane because my body is very sensitive. But, (knock on wood) I have been doing really well. I think it is, also, because my regimen is very strict.

1. I take Omega-3 fatty acid capsules (supposedly countereffects depression)
2. little sugar bc your teeth get dry and many people develop cavaties after accutane
3. Vit E capsules
4. I wash my face with all Dr. Hauschka products. My lips LOVE the lip care stick. I think this is why my lips have not been as chapped. Other chapsticks can be addictive. This line is a little pricey, but to me it is well worth it. It is all natural.
5. Humidifier in my room.
6. LOTS of water everyday
7. no drinking
8. nioxin for hair
9. I have a kick *** insurance plan through my job that covers acupuncture. so, i get it every few weeks.
10. I am on liver detoxes (homeopathy) to make sure everthing is being flushed.
11. Borage oil capsules
12. I am not drinking alcohol at all
13. I am a contact wearer. I wear my contacts to work (Complete Moisture Plus has been my solution). I ll put some refresh tears in my eyes before bed. DO NOT USE VISINE! Make you use natural tears.
14. Make up: Jane Iredale has a wonderful line of make up (again, a little pricey...but, well worth it.) It is the Purepressed Base with spf 17. It works really well esp on the red marks left over from your acne when your face begins to clear.
15. really good vitamins.

So, continue to be vigilant about your health (on and off accutane). You ll notice you re body will appreciate it!

Good Luck.
How is everybody doing? Not much to report here things are kind of just moving along. No complaints I am almost at the 8 week mark? I have lost count. My face continues to clear with minimal set backs, my face is back on track after a menstrual face eruption. Just a few active ones left on my face. Ali are you tan yet girl? Still waiting on my bon bon money. I hope juicy sees your post about the assistance program, that would be great for her if she decides to take tane. I have been using aloe vera at night to help with red marks and I am pretty pleases with the results. Hope all is well!

What kind of liver flushes are you on? I also am an avid naturopathy/homeopathy user but Im not sure what would work best while on accutane.

There are daily detox teas that I've been looking into this product:

Any suggestions?
