Jojoba oil while on accutane
Post a Reply
I was just wondering if jojoba oil reverses the effects of accutane? I have been using it on my skin ever since I started the medication and my skin hasn't been that dry. I'm almost done with my first month. I don't know if this is a good or bad sign, since my skin has to be dry in order for the meds to work.

I took roaccutane in 1996 and again in 1997. Each time was for around 6 months. I had a 6 minute tonic clonic seizure in August 2011 and another one in January 2012.

Taking another pack after finishing the 21 pills
3 Replies RSS
Hello, i just want to ask, is it ok to take another pack after finishing tge 21pills? I did not follow the 7 day free pill. The purpose of taking the pills is for my acne breakouts and thinking that it could help regularized my mens. Is it normal to have a delayed mens since this is my first timee to use the product? I am just curious if its safe or what. Or the 7days free pill must be followed?? Looking forward for your reply. Thank you. ## The 7 days free is what allows you to have a period, when taking oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. Thus, it is best to take those 7 days off. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi! I also have question about nordette pills. I f...

Have severe burnt lips for over two weeks from tropical sun. Can I use this ointment for the lip (.05) ? ## Hi Don, Sorry to hear about what happen to your lips. Regarding the Clobetasol propionate ointment, this is a corticosteroid used to treat severe inflammatory skin conditions as well as various skin disorders, ranging from eczema to psoriasis.

You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Clobetasol Details Hopefully being in the setting of a lush tropical environment was totally worth it in the long run ;) ## hi sir i got eczema on my hands and face ,i consulted ...

Accutane and Infertility
597 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...
