we will try to help you with your problem.
Thanks for the responses. Seems like with any chemical you read about the sides warning and sounds bad enough to make a person not want to use it. Will try all new techniques mentioned above, and run it.
I just wanted to share that after one week of accutane I decided to bump to 20mg and it was one of the worst feelings I've had in a long time. Got the sweats, upset stomach,felt lost,confussed, my mind won't go to sleep with my body. So today I took 10mg and the same shitty feeling but less intense. I couldn't hang at gym had to bounce. Tomorrow I may take at night before bed or just say the **** with that shit.
I was on accutane for 8 months last year. It sucks ass starting the dose or increasing it. Just a horrible full body bad feeling. It takes a few days to pass but it does. I was on 40mg for a month and 20mg for the rest due to the dr's being a bag of pussies and dropping me from the program because my liver values. I got Human Grade shit from china and spent the 7 months on 20mg/day. It sucked, the acne never got better till AFTER i stopped accutane. The entire 8 months i broke out, if not worse, and cuts/popped zits would heal sooooo slow. That's why they say never to get ink on accutane, it will never heal.
I hope you got human grade accutane, because NO UGL accutane will compare. I've used 3-4 UGL's garbage and none did what 20mg of HG accutane did.
accutane is mos def a killer on ur liver
I use a 30 day supply of Adoxa 150 from my doc to kill my bacne.
Just one run and good? Any side affects like accutane?
**** ACCUTANE!!!! That shit dried me out. Dried my face out so damn bad. I threw it in the trash.
Got the Adoxa from my dermatologist. With two refills. Still have the refills waiting to be used. No problems like accutane. He also gave me some kind of acne wash for my back but I forget what it was called.
Sounds like my next option.
The Adoxa was one pill a day for 30 days. I called my pharmacy and the back wash is called Triaz Cleanser. That combo did it for me. Once the acne was gone I still used the Triaz everyday. Be careful the Triaz will bleach your towels and clothes. In the shower i would wash my back and let the Triaz sit on my skin for a little bit while I washed the rest of my body. It took about a month for my back to heal almost all the way up. I would still get a pimple now and then but I will take that over the 20 plus I use to have.
If I didn't take the Adoxa with food I would barf my guts up.
I wonder about food allergies and acne. Figure a strong antihistamine would mask those issues.. Lots of good suggestions here, will try the green tea for shits & giggles.
Have noticed a connection with sexual activity (male). Perhaps due to prolactin increase? Tried AI's around the same time and didn't notice a significant difference while suppressing estrogen. Maybe just a drop in test production.
Test cycles seem to clear things up for the most part, all while increasing oil production (?); Went to an endocrinologist while normalized and nothing was found. PCT spells breakouts and orgasms do the same here (except maybe while on cycle). Lately, this almost guarantees scarring, so I avoid both. And cordyceps mushrooms too fwiw. :/
A few things are used for skin maintenance, the usual salicylic acid pads (beta hydroxy), glycolic acid (alpha hydroxy) spot treatment for scars, dermarolling, retinol creme.
As some background, I had cystic acne as a teen and took accutane when it first came out. The dosage was on the top end for single pills, must have been 40mg/d. Cleared things up, but the side effects sucked. High dose B5 seems like the better bet.
About ready to get my own lab work and go the dermatologist route again. I wouldn't say these issues are related to AAS experimentation, as the other aspects have been consistent. Hard to say without a closer look at specific lab results, which I don't have available. I hate dealing with doctors, tbh.
Does anyone realize that the op never posted a thanks to all this help and hasn't posted since January? LOL Maybe we should just sticky it as an acne help guide with a new title.
I think upping his dose of accutane on his own w no bloodwork was dangerous considering how rash it can be on your liver. I hatedddddd accutane
Plus 1. **** accutane.
