I'm on roaccutane now, its super concentrated vitamin A so I don't think there's many things as strong as that. the things they prescribed before were just antibiotics, but they don't really help feel free to ask me any questions about roaccutane though ^^
Sorry about the late reply I have been on antibiotics and stuff and they just made it worse but I have been denied roaccutane because of a failed blood test for something being too high or something, I heard there is a cream version of roaccutane or something or is there something similar? I have also been told if you get denied accutane they will just offer you antibiotics again as there is nothing else but I don’t know which to believe anymore.
Yes I took my blood test and they didn't find anything so I'm on it. I'll try do some research about other alternatives today if you like If you don't mind telling me whether your suffering from bad scars or not, its okay if you want to PM me instead ^^
Does anyone know what dermatologist will prescribe for acne if you can’t go on roaccutane or don’t want to go on that because of all the side effects? I have tried antibiotics and gels all my life and it has helped them a little bit still find myself waking up with spots but don’t want to take roaccutane so is there a cream or something just as effective?
Have you tried it before ? Or have you juts read stuff about it ?
The thing with all medications is that everybody's body reacts in a different way. Some might have side effects, some not. Some will be able to take it for life, some not. Roaccutane works pretty fast, you will be able to see major changes on your skin within a week or so. I'd suggest you to take it for a week and see how you feel about it.
The internet doesn't have very positive feedback about roaccutane but I can tell you that I have been taking it for a long time and its the only thing that has been working for me. I have PCOS so acne would come back after a few months off the medication. For me, its the ultimate alternative to birth control pills (they never worked and I'm done with trying what side effects will arise with another pill).
As my internist says, "we don't change a winning team". If it works, you can always take it. I will be taking it for a long time, but with low dosage.
Feel free to ask me any questions !
