Ahh! I have so much acne again. Why is Accutane not working anymore?

Is there any way to counteract the workings of accutane? I don't want to be doing anything wrong..

No antidote. Danger!: If you took Isotretinoin and you might be pregnant, you need to get with your personal physician and very likely have the pregnancy terminated. This is a very powerful medicine and if you took it illicitly, you made a terrible mistake. There's no magic antidote. If you took some illicitly and aren't pregnant, it's less of a problem. If it's prescribed, take it properly. Best wishes. ...Read more

Follow up: With your dermatologist. There are still other treatments that can be added to your current treatment that can help so don't lose hope!!! You might need a course of oral antibiotics if the acne is pustular, and you might want to take some probiotics to help your body's biome (since you have probably been on antibiotics in past) replace pillowcase daily and avoid touching face w/hands. ...Read more

Hello, i suffer from acne i started using monocylcing and it stopped working i want Accutane how could i get it and is it bad if i order it online?

See Derm: Accutane has a huge number of very serious side effects and must be monitored by a skilled physician with experience prescribing it. I do not recommend ordering online and don't know how you could get it anyway as it is a prescription drug. See a dermatologist as there are many methods, techniques and medicines for acne. Don't treat yourself! ...Read more
