    edit- win win is right !
    I switched doctor's when they were getting ready to switch me to accutane (I think it was accutane, I was 14 when this happened). The doc rattled off several of the nasty side effects, and my parent's said "Goodbye".

    lol. side effects include? I heard about accutane having tons of side effects but what are some of them? I believe that it causes you to sweat less by closing your sweat glands of some sort?

  3. Increased triglyceride levels. I think he mentioned something about it affecting cholesterol. Headaches. Muscleaches. Depression (thoughts of suicide). He pretty much told us "This is pretty dangerous, hardcore sh*t." and it's only given for very severe cases.

    wow. thats crazy. Ive heard of the cholesterol part before. as well as depressions. I think those are just some of the sides tho as theres probably a list of it ( birth defects for pregnant women ) and such. I dont think my acne is hardcore enough to take accutane. altho nothing else seems to be working.

    Yeah the side effects are definitely something to be aware of with accutane. But once you've run the gamut of prescription topical creams and gels and antibiotic pills, accutane is the next logical and most potent step. Drawbacks are definitely the monthly blood tests (checking liver values I believe) and susceptibility to depression and everything that can come with that. Your doctor will know what's right for you after you take the initial blood tests and answer his questions.

    It is some crazy stuff though...I took it in high school after I tried many other options without much ado. First your skin gets EXTREMELY oily...it's pretty ridiculous. Then it jumps to the exact polar opposite and dries up like a desert...so dry that your skin peels off all day. Then after that your skin returns to normal and your acne is basically gone.

    There's really nothing to fear with accutane as long as you listen to your doc and keep him informed on your status (and don't drink or do roids duh ). If you go in with the fear of depression you probably will have already planted the seed in your mind and it could possibly happen psychosomatically.

    That was one of the warnings I saw on the label, I think I've taken every prescription acne drug there is. The doc eventually took me off minocycline because "it wasn't powerful enough".
    I was on tricycline through high school, in college everything was manageable for some reason, and then 3 years after I suddenly started breaking out really bad. Very odd.

    Minocine works 90% effective for me. The only thing I hate about it, is if I go off I instantly get bad again. It made me consider the more permanent accutane...but I don't think I care for those sides.


    I still feel like myself when I'm on it, and haven't noticed any other sides.

    I'm trying to think....

    Is mino- the one that made me vomit uncontrollably if I took on an empty stomach?

    I think it might have been doxycycline or ampicilin.

    Either way, all these acne meds are crazy, I don't take them anymore.

    you were probably irritated from the alcohols in napalm, and the java lather moisturized the area.

  11. I would def give it a try! I'm in!

  12. It's college time again, and when I go back the stress has in the past given me some bumps. I'm up for trying this out and seeing how it controls it, plus i love the smell of pumpkin lol.

    Same here, I have a Swedish/Irish background, and have suffered from acne and redness through out highschool and it has stayed with me even till this day. I can't remember when I didn't have acne problems, that's how bad it's affected me. I've tried numerous over the counter cleansers but most just dry the hell out of my sensitive skin, which gets to be really frustrating. I'd like to give this a shot and see how it works.

  24. my acne is worsening now, taking 30g/day of fish oils :P
