accutane treatment
1 Reply RSS Share
It has almost been a year since I finished my 5 month accutane treatment, and I could not be happier with the results. I took 80mg a day for 5 months. I find this to be more than the usual amount given (my friend only took 30mg for 6 months), but I believe this aggressive and short treatment was the reason for such success (that same friend relapsed only a few months later... I think because of her low dosage). During accutane, I experienced extreme dryness (I even got eczema on my hands and arms), I had really bad back pain the last month or so of treatment, my hair thinned a little in the front (it has all grown back now), and my personality was a little more secluded too (this is probably because I was ashamed of my worsening acne and not due to the actual drug). My lips were really ...

What is Fumaderm? what are its side effects? Is it better to take than Soraitain or Methatrexate? ## Hi, I've been on Fumaderm for around two months now and have found the results really good. I still have small patches here and there but the majority has cleared up. I havent tried Soraitain or Methatrexate, but I used to be on Cyclosporin, which I didnt like as it lowered my immune system and I always felt generally unwell and couldnt shake off a cold for weeks! The side effects are less if you slowly build up the dose, I took one 'initial' tablet for a week, then two for two weeks before going up to one 'blue' tablet per day which I've been on now for almost 5 weeks. I have had some side effects but nearly as bad as some others I've heard of. The main one i...

Accutane and Infertility
622 Replies RSS Share
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...

Skin itching
1 Reply RSS Share
I am 24 years old and I have had an on and off skin rash on the top of my left foot and one on my outside of my right shoulder for the past 2-3 years. Same two places always. I have not been to the dermatologist because they seem to go away if I can leave them alone and not scratch them. When I do get them they stay for awhile because I can't stop scratching them (maybe due to stress). The past month they have been itching the hell out of me and I can't stop scratching. I have tried all types of lotions and creams that you can buy at a walgreens but they only work for a little bit then back to scratching. I asked the pharmacist for his 'expert opinion' and he said I should try something stronger like cordran tape that covers the area and prevents me from scratching it. I...

accutane and birth defects
10 Replies RSS Share
I am wondering if there are any women who have completed their suggested doses of Accutane and had children later. Have there been birth defects that seem as though they could have been triggered by previous Accutane use? I know there are significant risks of birth defects while actively on the drug, but what about the long-term after-use impacts on reproduction? I wish I could ask some physicians to participate in a long-term, observational study for this but I'd have no idea how to go about it. It doesn't seem like anything is out there on this topic. ## Well, April….what I have to say on the subject is…. Having used sites like this for many years and having read/answered many, many posts there are a lot of people that have taken it and experienced health issues th...

accutane long term side effects

I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

Accutane and seizures

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.

Has anyone else developed seizures 15 years or so after finishing roaccutane? ## YES....I Hate to Even Admit it..But..I have had several Seizures....Some lasting 15 minutes...It is Like being trapped inside a body that will not work..or even perform the simplest tasks....I could see...and realize..I was drueling...but my right arm was contorted..and my left arm was basically rigid....I believe it is About time..We all find a way to form a network...of people...that can compare notes.....More aptly...than on here..Please contact Me. ## I can't say wheth...

Melas cream usage
4 Replies RSS Share
Melas should not be used as a skin fairness cream... Melas cream should be used only at night before bed time for 15-20 minutes and then clean your face. And the next day use Melas ultra cream 5-6 times during the day. Note: After you've finished the product use only Melas soap... ## Meals cream is very effective - you all should use it. ## Can I still use melas cream for skin whitening if I don't have acne or pimples? Or will it cause side effects? ## I had used melas cream for 2 months, now my skin has become red and some pimples are forming by using this. What can I do? Please tell me as soon as possible. ## Melas cream is good but you can also use Hydroquinone 4 which helps to remove dark patches on the skin.Its really effective cream.

vagina and clobetasol propionate
Post a Reply Share
My gynocologist upon my annual pap, showed me pointing a mirror at my vagina that I have some white skin that could possibly end in pre-cancer or worse. So she prescribed “clobetasol propionate .05. When I got home, I realized I have absolutely no idea where this cream suppose to go??? I guess my best bet is to go back to my gyno and ask her to show me again. Do you by any chance know off hand where to put this cream? Thank you if you can help.

can we use clobetasol propionate & salicylic acid ointment to the private parts? ## You should not use anything on your genitals that has not been specifically formulated to be used on them, unless your doctor has instructed you to do so. If you do so, it could result in infection, skin irritation, redness, burning, itching, and fungal infections, according to the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I apply clobetasol & salicylic acid cream can apply for scalp ## I'm using Clobetasol Propionate and Salicylic Acid Ointment.

how to use lobate gm skin cream

I have dark black spots on face caused by burning. can i use lobate gm neo to remove spots ## I have to many pimples in my face ## Can I use lobate gm neo 15m on my face for pimples and acne? Does it have any side effect? Thanks! ## Lobate-GM is listed as containing Clobetasol, which is a type of steroid. Thus, that means it may actually worsen some skin conditions, such as acne, because it can actually cause it, as a side effect. Other possible side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include skin dryness, redness and irritation. Taani, it isn't likely that it will help those dark spots, either. Have you consulted a dermatologist? ## Hello sir, I am staying in gulf. Here the weather is too hot. My age is 44. I have pigmentation problem since long time. Another problem is i have dark...

Round white pill with NC on center of one side, other side is blank ## acne medicine ## Devon is correct, this is an over the counter product used to treat acne, it is sold under the brand name Nature's Cure, though I cannot provide the specific formulation of this one, since they use the same logo on all of their products. The FDA warns that their products are only supplements, so they are not actually proven to help with anything. They may also be contraindicated with some prescription medications, and some medical conditions. Some people also experience nausea, and diarrhea as side effects. Are there any questions?
