309783 tn?1271958229 Hi. My dermatologist recommends long term low dose oral Isotretinoin for resistant rosacea co-existing with adult acne (there is no risk of pregnancy). He says this will reduce telangiectasias and redness. I thought retinoids made telangiectasias and redness worse? Or is that just topical retinoids? I would value your advice. Thanks, Eloise.
634590 tn?1293774093 i want to discuss with you all my problem. As you know i took 20mg isotretinoin for 15 days and pain started in my right hip joint. Went to Arthopedic and he said it is infection. im now on antibiotics (one week on IV augmenten + oxidil and then on ciprofloxacin 500 twice) for last 5 weeks. Today i suddenly feel same kind of pain in my left groin (front of hip joint) . im wondering if there was infection in right hip joint how can that infection travel to my left joint even im on antibiotics.
Avatar m tn thanks james. i also took isotretinoin for treatment of body acne. since isotretinoin is also a drug used for some cancer/chemo treatment, will that delay the development of hiv antibody?
Avatar m tn Hi. Oral Isotretinoin (Accutane/Roaccutane) is the most effective drug for clearing acne. It has many potential side effects (dry lips, sensitized skin, joint and muscle pain) but this must be balanced against the fact that after your course you are likely to remain free from acne for a long time. The correct dose is 0.5 to 1mg x kg bodyweight per day. So if you weigh 50kg, you are correct in taking 40mg daily, as your dose should be between 25 and 50mg a day.
Avatar m tn There are different drugs for treating acne - like Azelaic acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Isotretinoin, Antibiotics creams etc. Could you make any comparison amongst these from your experience? Which drug should be given step by step for mild, moderate and severe acne? Could you tell the common side effects and safety etc.?

Avatar n tn 05% isotretinoin gel is rarely indicated as a suppressive treatment for widespread disfiguring sebaceous hyperplasia. Oral isotretinoin should be prescribed by a physician who is experienced in oral retinoid therapy and only for patients without contraindications.

Avatar m tn I am extremely thin now and cannot put on weight on no matter how much I eat or what I eat. For example I can eat a whole tub of ice-cream and has no affect on my body. I have read about others have this issue also. Isotretinoin (accutane) obviously messed up something in my body so that it doesn't metabolize or absorb food the way it did pre-accutane. If anyone has any knowledge in this area plz respond. ty.

Avatar n tn Hello, Oratane capsules contain a medication known as isotretinoin. Isotretinoin is often a cure for acne. You can take oratane after 3 weeks after miscarriage but Oratane causes birth defects and must absolutely not be used by pregnant women or by women who intend to become pregnant. Hence the time you are taking oratane , you should not fall pregnant.
Avatar m tn So the only option I have is to avoid triggers and wait for the Rosacea to get worse. But waiting for it to get worse is so difficult for me. Having said that, I am not really much concerned about the red part. I am very very very very concerned about the potential disfigurements of the nose. I understand that the extra growth tissue can be removed by laser.
