I've tried everything, I'm 24yo and I still have it.

I’ve tried everything, I’m 24yo and I still have it. There isn’t a single dermatologist in my city but even if there were I don’t see the point in paying to be told what I already know. Any resources for using this stuff yourself? I know some places I can get it online without a prescription, I just need to know how long to use it for and at what dose.

    >asking for medical advice on a LULZ board, including what dosage to take

    Really?

    And it took me 1 minute to look up and read pages on what dosage and for how long etc.

    But shit such as this:

    >Accutane in just a single dose can cause severe birth defects or death of a baby.

    Was a huge red flag right away.

      yes its extremely toxic. lots of people juts take it like its no big deal that they are signing up for the REM’s monitoring program where you have to let the government know when and where you are taking it. There’s a reason it’s kept track of, because its toxic yes to a fetus but to YOU as well. Also, this shit can give you chrohns disease for life.

      I know a pharmacist who his nephew took accutane and has chrons disease now. they won the lawsuit yea, but no one has seen a penny of the money and the makers of accutane keep appealing and putting the final verdict off or some shit.

      • Cecelia Drakensang In Seattle says:

        Yeah people will say you’re not a pregnant woman or a baby, but if 1 dose can do that, it’s going to have the chance to really screw you up.

        I honestly thought anything that does that would me banned outright. Sounds like thalidomide that deformed tons of babies.

        >The bulk of litigation dealt with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

        Gets even worse. So it is interfering with your immune system too.

        >I know a pharmacist who his nephew took accutane and has chrons disease now. they won the lawsuit yea, but no one has seen a penny of the money

        Surprised, super hard to prove it give him that, at least that’s what the pharma will push for. And I suspect most people who take this are young, around the same time crohn’s and colitis usually start up.

        This is why pharma is junk, so many serious life threatening conditions caused by pills to cure or help you. heck, I would rather have acne.

    Get a hecking facial peel. Remove the top few layers of your skin that are continually being re-exposed to the oils and bacteria of your face.

    And what you also have to understand is that drugs get proceeded by the organs of the body, so in almost all new prescriptions for a drug, liver and kidney health must be monitored via blood tests.

    Skincare isn’t my area because I am naturally gorgeous and flawless, but you’re better focusing on diet that would reduce your oils skin.

    >i do

    Which usually means I only eat seed oil infused pizza 4 times a week and not 7, and drink gatorade and not cola.

      PROCESSED.

      Focusing on a diet that would reduce your oily skin**

      The dilation pain meds are kicking in.

    Alright you guys convinced me, no accutane. Just to add to the horror stories, my mom did data entry in a children’s hospital for a little while, specifically in their mental health ward. There was a whole cluster of teenage patients who were there because they took accutane and started exhibiting psychotic symptoms. Even knowing that, I’m warming up to it because I’m just sick and tired of the acne. I recently started test 250 for a winter bulk so it’s probably that, before now tretinoin was doing (mostly) fine, but I’m just sick and tired of it. I have this nagging doubt that I should’ve taken accutane 10 years ago and I never would’ve had to live with this hecking acne for so long. If not accutane, what’re some high calorie foods that won’t heck with my skin?

      Lmao and that wasn’t enough warning?

      >I recently started test 250 for a winter bulk

      Oh that’s probably the culprit then.

      >what’re some high calorie foods that won’t heck with my skin?

      Why not the usual shakes? Good oils. I go for milk, egg white protein powder, oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, milk cream, bananas.

      You can get a 1k calorie shake out of that, it’s cheap, all natural, good fats, and I choose egg white protein as it’s kinder on the stomach than whey.

      Even taking test without monitoring is a gamble imo unless you are doing it as a career.

        >Lmao and that wasn’t enough warning?
        It used to be, but I’m starting to get exasperated with the situation. I’ve been using cheap whey based mass gainers but I think they’re making it worse, I’ll look into egg white protein.

        >I’ve tried everything
        Carnivore Diet, no caffein, almost no carbs etc?

        Yes etc

        • Cecelia Drakensang In Seattle says:

          That are likely full of simple carbs as their main calorie source. Mass gainers have always been kinda shitty.

      However, after starting estrogen and testosterone blockers, my acne went away and hasn’t come back.

      My skin is so clear and beautiful now, I get compliments on it from both men and women.

      I’m super shy and have social anxiety disorder, so I blush a lot when talking to people.

      As a result, several people have told me I "glow" when I talk to them.

      Going pescatarian seems to have worked for me, but even when I went off dairy completely I had like a 90% reduction in acne… hecked up how doctors were considering putting me on hecking accutane without suggesting I change my diet first

    Accutane worked for me, can’t remember my dosage but it was something like 70mg a day for six months, that might be a bit much however. I’ve had a few pimples pop up after finishing treatment but they were small and went away quickly on their own with over the counter creams.
    I should tell you that the side effects are pretty bothersome, however. Very dry lips, nosebleeds, eczema, back pain, possible liver damage. The dermatologists might make you do monthly blood tests to make sure you aren’t slowly killing your body with it. Honestly if you’re looking to get on it you should go to a dermatologist and not try it yourself just so you don’t accidentally heck up all your organs and bones. It’s made from a vitamin A derivative which is one of the few vitamins the body can actually overdose on, and a vitamin A overdose is pretty painful, it’s like bone hurting juice.

      I should add that the only side effects I experienced are the skin-related ones, maybe I was just fortunate but I didn’t get any organ issues or anything like that.
      I think all the talk about Accutane making people suicidal or insane are just barely-substantiated rumors, at the very least Accutane probably wasn’t the main cause of their mental illness. I would argue that treating acne would help mental health because it makes people feel better about themselves and be a lot more comfortable in public. I know it did for me.
      If you really want acne to go away, just go to a dermatologist, even if you have to drive a while to get to one, and ask if you can get put on Accutane. Maybe I’m just hecking stupid but I think the risk of organ damage is worth feeling better about yourself and being more /fashion/.
