Should I take roaccutane?

Should I take roaccutane?

Hi,

This post isn’t PE related, just thought I would get advice on it.

Roaccutane is a serious acne medication that, for the most part, ‘cures’ people of acne. However it has a long list of side effects and is basically toxic. For me be completely clear of acne I have to

Have no/very little:

Sugar, saturated fat, carbohydrate, alcohol, processed food, dairy, basically anything other than the ‘caveman diet’ which is meat and vegetables.

This, as I’m sure you can appreciate, is very difficult and not really realistic in the long term.

Although my acne fair ups are pretty rare now, I’m aware that I could have mild acne well into my 40’s. My acne’s not serious enough to get a prescription for roaccutane/acnotin (I’m UK based so we don’t have the insurance style USA system). Getting the roaccutane/acnotin is not the problem, the issue is whether the side effects are worth the effective ‘elimination’ of acne. Would appreciate feedback on this.

Cheers

My Brother was on it.. We both suffered from cystic acne on our faces, chests and backs. I sort of grew out of it, he didn’t and as a last resort used roaccutane. It worked for him though the potential side effects were scary from my perspective.

Good luck.

I’d stay away from that shit if I was you.

In 2009, Roche decided to remove Accutane from the US market after juries had awarded millions of dollars in damages to former Accutane users over inflammatory bowel disease claims. Other common brands are Roaccutane (Hoffman-La Roche, known as Accutane in the United States before July 2009)

Now I don’t know much about acne, but I do remember helping someone with acne back in the eighties, it may work for you, it may not. First of all you are on the right track with the diet (inconsequentially that is how I eat and it is very maintainable as a diet), the chap I helped ate oranges which in some (not all cases) can cause flare ups, and he also used to wash his face till it was almost raw. Now there is nothing wrong with washing your face it’s great you should exfoliate too but when you remove the oils the body will up the oil from the sebatious glands to compensate, and the acne problem will be exasperated.

We got rid of the oranges for a couple of weeks and his acne cleared up a little (it was a big improvement just the little bit) he was then open to trying something else, which was Olive oil and Teatree oil mixed together and applied after washing, it works to replace the oil of the skin and signal that less oil needs to be produced. The Teatree is also anti-bacterial so it helps with that side, just don’t get it in your eyes (stings like a bastard on fire, got some in my eyes once when I was treated for a gash in my forehead by an overzealous Teatree farmer). These days you could even try the Teatree with coconut oil which I think would be better.

I hope that helps.

The side effects are supposedly worse for women (think babies).

I took it and it changed my life. When you start taking it everything in your skin comes to the surface at first. After a couple of weeks you’re nearly cleared up. You WILL experience dry lips, just keep some lip balm on you at all times. That’s the only thing I noticed from it, after all it is drying up your skin. I just wish I could have gotten on it earlier. It was my Sr. year in high school when I finally got it. If you notice something odd, stop taking it. You only have to take it for a couple of months to be all better and it makes a permanent change. The acne just doesn’t come back like it used to. I won’t hesitate to put my sons on it if needed.

Is roaccutane different from accutane? I was on accutane for 9 months and I’m completely clear now. When I started on Accutane, the doctor didn’t mention any diet necessities; only that I shouldn’t get pregnant. Easy for me, I’m a dude.

No it’s the same thing.

It has different brand names.. Sotret would be another , the active ingredient is called Isotretinoin, a form of vitamin A http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotretinoin

You should know that there is at least one marketed topical application of it, Isotrexin, at least here in Europe, google it. Though it has a very very low dose of Isotretinoin. I’d advise trying the topical application first in combination with another topical treatment. For example Isotrexin and Skinoren . If you really are that desperate, you could combine a very very low dosage of Roaccutane with the topical application. A combo of some sorts. I’m giving you ideas that you should discuss with your doctor. The full dose of Roaccutane should be the last resort, in my opinion.

I’ve never had bad acne just breakouts of pimples sometimes and always have a few come up here and there. When I need to I use this ‘face scrub’ from an aus small business in the SW called tinderbox, works like magic, exfoliates a little bit mainly opens up the pores and fertilizes your skin. It contains honey, almond oil, botanical glycerin, oats. Essential oils: cinnamon, peppermint sage and myrrh.

Try something natural first. Tea-tree is a good idea, after cleaning/moisturizing


At birth I was given a choice between a good memory and a big dick, but I can't remember what I chose.
