    How do i get my dermatologist 2 put me on acnetane, im 22
    13 Nov 2009, 05:26
    hello Ntando,
    if you can't find Acnetane on your area, you can buy or order any other Isotretinoin brand as Accutane Roche or generic in online or offline pharmacy. Just choose exactly the same pharmaceutical form and dose as you prescribed.

    I need acnetane
    05 Mar 2010, 00:44
    I want to know if acnetane have any side effects
    30 Mar 2010, 22:23
    I have a full box off acnetane. want to sell it
    03 Jul 2010, 05:07
    Acnetane has to be prescribed by a doctor, dont think its legal to just sell it.

    Annemare, there are so many side affects that they arent all listed on the leaflet. Its hair raising really, I just stopped taking acnetane, the only side effects I experienced was dry mouth, chapped lips,head aches and joint pain.
    09 Aug 2010, 03:09
    acnetane are ilegal to sell,,, a doctor should prescribe them to you. they dont even keep them in pharmacy sometimes,,, u have to be tested pregnancy negative
    17 Aug 2010, 00:15
    U can't just sell Acnetane..that is written on the box. Anyway I've been using it for the 2nd year now
    30 Sep 2010, 05:09

    I have been on acnetane and want to know the difference between acnetane and Roaccutane.

    Which of these is more effective. I have been on acnetane for 3 months now and no improvement of my skin.
    14 Oct 2010, 04:33
    Dear Tebogo,,
    They are the same... as long as they have that name isotretinoin,,, that is wat matter,,, sometimes i got Roaccutane and sometimes acnetane.

    Roaccutane, acnetane
    and so on are company's names only,, wat matters is that is writen Isotretinoin..

    had a same problem and my doctor told me so
    14 Oct 2010, 06:14
    Thanks Esta, is just that when I googled Acnetane there is not much results rather I get accutane and roaccutane.

    I wonder if this adcock ingram product is not just a second grade product...
    05 Nov 2010, 10:34
    Guys before u start on acnetane u have to get your blood tested because it might hurt ur liver.. do not share it with a friend they 1st have2 see a dermatologist en get their own prescription.. and while on acnetane DONT feel like a hero/heroen and donate blood. u could kill a person! my doctor gave me a 4months prescription and iv been on it 4 two months.. so far so good though gotta keep away from da sun and have my labelo with everytime.. it makes my lips try en chapped..

    Haai guys. I'v bn on acnetane for 2 full months now, half to my third. I literally see no improvement instead the condition is worsening. I wash my face with Epiwash its a mild soap and then apply the Bioderma Sebium Hydra,and after I put on my oil free moisterizing foundation.Is there a hope as I'm becoming hopeless now. Seen my Dermatologiest recently and was also not happy with the condition. Do I just stop or must I hang in there a little while.

    Like to start on acnetane! But not sure does it really work????
    15 Apr 2011, 16:18
    When using Acnetane, Suncreen its one of the Most Important thing you must Have and make sure its 30+, I am Using it and its the Best for the Skin, for Ladies ask your Dermatogiest to Prescribe Diane 35, its a good Contraceptive and it helps for Ance, Promise you that it does work,
    Acnetane its the best thou it Has its own Side Effects , but they are Managable
    06 May 2011, 01:12

    people Im still on acnetane 20mg capsules and results are showing, I was told dedication was needed 4rm me if I want to get rid of my acne,u get a mild soap with the acnetane treatment and lip balm,dont use anything on your face such as exfoliaters,the reasons why most of you dont see improvements is because you smoke,drink,etc,this conflicts with acne treatment and NEVER take supplements containing vitamin A,acnetane is a derivative thereof, Zanela resend your email to me,it came incomplete....STILL NEED MORE INFO CONTACT ME @ waldimirplaatjies@gmail.com or for a faster reply connect with me on www.facebook.com/waldimirp

    I have been on Acnetane for almost 2months. It works wonders. Everybody is telling me that I am glowing. I love how my skin feels even when I touch it. The only side effects I have experienced are dry lips, dry skin, sweating esp at night, sensitivity to light otherwise I am well. I wash my skin with baby acqueous and also apply it. It really helps with the dry skin, and of course I also apply sunscreen. I was also given birth control pills together with the Acnetane. It is very much worth it.
    21 Jul 2011, 23:43
    Ive bin taking 20mg acnetane 4 about 3 months now. Its amazing. Try it u'l c. Remember! U'l have 2 take some blood tests b4 starting this treatment.
    10 Aug 2011, 12:47
    I don't know if I should start this healing process or what? Indeed scare and tight of my ungly face?
    14 Aug 2011, 16:25
    hi i've been using acnetane for 2-3weeks now and i have not seen much improvement,i have also been prescribed sunscreen, a whitening cream cause i have acne scars and a neutrogena cleanser!for now i have not seen much difference, actually a friend told me that it is actually worst than before but some colleagues who went through the same process told me that it is hard and it takes time but it works so am going to keep on using it!
    16 Aug 2011, 11:15
    Hi u all, I started using Acnetane 10mg (and taking it once a day) 4 days ago - haven't experienced any side effects yet. I am dead worried about the side effects especially birth deformity cause I want to have babies of coz not while I'm on this treatment. Was wondering if anyone has much information on this or someone whose been on the treatment and have healthy babies now. The google information scarce the hell out of me. Was also wondering if female doctors would prescribed this medication to females planning to have kids in the near future?

    Hi, what is the dif between acnetane and oratane
    17 Aug 2011, 01:26
    How soon can I results wen using acnetane
    17 Aug 2011, 01:32
    I tried acnetane it just made my face worse my skin got very dry and my eyes was constantly burning I stopped it immediately dnt use it anymore the side effects are very dangerous
    17 Aug 2011, 01:36
    Plz tell if acnetane is good and how soon can I see results and wat can I use for dry skin and red eyes and dry lips please let me know tks
    17 Aug 2011, 01:39
    what was happening Thando - why are u saying side effects are dangerous?As I have mentioned its my 4th day but this evening my eyes were starting to bother me so I bough I drops and I constanly moisure my lips and hands. I'm starting to have serious doubTs.
    17 Aug 2011, 20:07
    guys did your dermatologist prescribe it to you or what!?these pills have to be prescribed because it does not suit everyone!
    i think if the side effects are really too harsh you should go consult as soon as you can cause this is serious!this treatment is prohibited in some countries because of the "dangerous" side effects.
    i only have dry skin and very dry lips but my eyes are fine!my lips are hurting all day long but my dermatologist told me that after a month my skin will be better and it's been only 2weeks and a half!i'm waiting!
    26 Aug 2011, 22:07
    it sometimes amazes me that the derma's propably know what they are talking about, but talk as if they don't. people, do research on your treatment before you start and have an open disscussion with your derma, sugesst options and be part of your treatment. remember im still available on any dis-clearity on acnetane so email me. good luck.
    13 Sep 2011, 13:41

    Hi guys, I'm on acnetane 4 a week now my skin is getting slowly better. Side effects: dry lips, dry nose, I use vaseline for my lips and nose my eyes are still fine though my Derma prescribed eye drops, I apply sunblock day time @ night moisturiser (DermoPal). I actually see a lot of difference I take 3 daily 20mg. Should I expect breakouts of pimples anytime soon or what?
    09 Feb 2012, 22:29
    Hi. I started 6 days ago with acnetane. Derma prescribed Diane 35 for me and it makes me nausea. She also prescribed a cleanser, reconstructive cream and sun sun block with SPF50. My lips are starting to get dry.I take 10mg in the morning and 20 in the evening. Also prescribed pills called purmycin. I do not know what they are for, but I take 2 every 8 hours. I am hoping after all this, I no longer have pimples. Its gonna be a long 6 months.
    13 Feb 2012, 11:44
    Elisha-i was on acnetane b4-you are not allowed to fall pregannat for 6 mnths after acnetane course has been completed-and for those who have concerns of having deformed babies-that's only if u fall preganany whilst on acnetane-but after 6 mnths of completeing the course-ur good to go

    11 Jun 2012, 00:41
    I started acnetane 2008 november it was 20g.i was for 2month i dnt wanna lie it treated me very well i could see,a change within 4 days because my body react so quick to medication.i was taking on pill a day only @ night.my lips were dry,ache body.doctor gave me bioderm for face but i ran out it quick she advance me to use cream with water base in it no oil.m skin was super clean in that process.until 2009 july.i got rash again i knew acne was back again i took some acnetane 10g this time as it was not that bad.i was fine again so what i did.i told myself that 'm gonna take one pill every after 3days of which it worked for me.now i notice i develop pigmentation i wanna know is it caused by acnetane.when will i stop to take actane because it sees like there is noway out.what happens is i can skip 4 month now without taking any but along the way acne keep on coming back and whenever i try other pills or creams they just make it worse lucky enough for me i can tell when something doesnt work because i only need to take it for 3-4days and results will show.
    23 Aug 2012, 10:00
    I started using acnetane a week ago and my derma told me that I should take it for 1 week and wait for 3 weeks without taking it and start again after 3 weeks for another weeks. so he gave me a treatment for 3 months.
