Hello all, I've struggled with acne all my life on my face, and the occasional cystic acne on my back and chest..I recently finished a 12 week cycle of test cyp and ran a full PCT.

I had no issues with acne while on cycle on my back or chest. I had an occasional cystic acne flair up which was normal for me.

Now a few weeks after PCT I have cystic acne on my chest and shoulders like I've never seen before. 15-20 huge bumps on each shoulder/back and 7-10 on my chest. Oddly enough my face is clear lol.

Anyway, my question is has anyone run Accutane low dose before? Was thinking about running 20mg a day to see if it clears up. I also planned on starting another cycle of test cyp soon lol.

If anyone could give me their feedback on accutane use for steroid induced acne that would be great.

Thanks

What did u use for pct.
Btw get some erythromycin. Stay away from accutane. It's caused some nasty side effects for me. Even short term

Don't know if this issue was resolved or what happened. But I can relate my man, I have ran Accutane, I have ran Accutane TWICE! Just so you know theres no guarantee it will work first round. But I went and saw a dermatologist, first prescribing me a handful of oral acne antibiotics that just weren't doing the trick. Did Accutane for my first time when I was around 19 I think its 6 months on Accutane MINIMALLY IF your acne clears and is good, or the longest it can be ran for I believe is 9months not sure anymore. After a cycle of Accutane you then come off drug which you are then monitored for the next 6 months to see how your body reacts to coming off the drug. Now personally I never had any negative side effects my worst sides were dry lips and dry eyes, chap stick and eye drops boom I was good to go. Then years later I was like 23 I think, my acne started to flare up again so again did another cycle of Accutane after all was said and done I was clear. I am now 28, was having no problems with acne yes I got the occasional pimple hear and there and would every random once in a while get an acne cyst on chest or back but very very minor. Again now my back is flared up real bad to where I am thinking of running another cycle of Accutane if I can't get it back under control. BUTTT check with your doctor, cause for me I am planning to get tattooed soon here, therefore you can't get tattooed while on Accutane. So I either have to hold out till I get tattooed to then start Accutane or start Accutane then wait about 16 months to then get tattooed IF everything goes right and I don't have to be on the cycle for longer than normal. So make sure you take a lot of things into consideration its a hard drug dude check with your doctor and cover everything and anything you need to know just FYI you can't have more than 1 alcoholic beverage a day because of Accutane. Anything else ask away man.

Fuk Accutane sh!t is poison. I've taken it and I wouldn't even recommend it to Hitler.

Damn dude, I never had that issue or any other issues so its just strange to hear about other problems people had from the drug.

Yeah accutane has messed up quite a few of my friends. They make topical accutane (I forget the name of it) which is much better imo.

Hello All.

Just an update.. been running 10mg every day for about 6 months now. Completely clear and just left with scars. Did not see any side effects. I’m assuming because this was such a low dose.
