So this is going to be a bit of a long post but I am at my wits end with my skin and I'm not sure what to do now. I'm going to be 30 this year and my skin looks like I'm 13. My self confidence has completely plummeted and I need some advice. I... (more)
I was on accutane for about a year - low dose 20mg. However I have been left with dry eyes and either dry skin or seborrheic dermatitis. I believe it is the latter. Accutane is a form of vitamin A. I read a few things on Vitamin D... (more)
If anything Accutane appears to ramp up active vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxy) production. I don't think you can draw any conclusions about whether vitamin D treatment will clear Accutane faster than normal.
I have just been prescribed Roaccutane/ Accutane treatment for my hormone related acne. The doctor recommends I lower my intake of high cholesterol foods whilst on the drug. She gave me a leaflet titled 'Cholesterol Lowering Advice' which... (more)
Hi PH'ers, I haven't been on Isotretinoin/Accutane for a few years, but the side effects haven't left. Accidental O.D. (still have that classic thinned out eyebrow) on it during my second course (which was already high dose to begin with).... (more)
I've been struggling with dry skin on my face for years now. I was given accutane as a teen (a decade ago) and I believe that has permanently affected my skin. I am not sure if this is true but it is my only guess. The issue does not run in my... (more)
After 6ish years of trying everything and anything to stop my cystic acne, I decided to resort to a very low dose accutane treatment in an attempt to keep my acne at bay while minimizing the common side effects of accutane. I am going to start... (more)
Yep. I know, I never thought I would give in. But i'm seriously considering accutane. I've been on the paleo diet for 3 months, and while my face cleared up significantly, my arms/back/chest still harbor cystic acne. I'm absolutely tired of it. I... (more)
Don't! I was on Accutane when I was 20 (15 years ago). My skin got so dry that when I pulled down my pants dry white skin flakes would flurry. It did really reduce the number of cysts I got on my face, but to this day I still have acne on my face... (more)
- To Cut A Long Story Short I Was On Low Dose Accutane 20mg A Day For About A Year.
- Suppplement Quality
To cut a long story short I was on low dose accutane for about a year and have had side effects such as dry scalp (or seb derm) and dry rough facial skin with lots of flaking (possibly seb derm) Anyway after researching for months I have... (more)
I have a couple of cysts on my face that won't go away. I think they came after I have too much fruit for about a week. I'm 14 years old, so acne is pretty hard to hide from, but if I don't get rid of these cysts my parents are going to force me... (more)
What can I do to help to repair my liver and what things can be done for good liver function in general? What should I eat and/or supplement? I have heard milk thistle and dandelion root are good. Thanks!!!
Was on low dose (20mg) accutane for about year and a bit. Worse decision of my life - caused me seb derm and blood shot eye in one corner of it. Anyways... How can I reverse Accutane (retinoid) overdose? Thanks! (more)
