Isotretinoin gel reviews

Common Questions and Answers about Isotretinoin gel reviews


Avatar m tn Do not use Clindamycin or Differin gel at the same time as oral Isotretinoin. This will increase the risk of irritation, redness and itchy skin. Use bland cleansing and moisturizing products to counter the drying effect of Isotretinoin. Tell your doctor you cannot tolerate the topical preparations as well as your oral medicine. You will be able to have microdermabrasio to remove scarring, but you must wait 6 months after finishing Isotretinoin because of the risk of scarring and irritation.
Avatar n tn maintenance doses of oral isotretinoin in the range of 10-40 mg every other day or 0.05% 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 f tn KY jelly is the same as doppler gel. Icky when you think about it I know Lol. Doppler gel is just a little thinner so you don't need quite as much.
Avatar f tn I am aware that dapsone gel is effective,though my experience in this is a trifle limited.Do consult and verify.
Avatar n tn The first step would be to try an over the counter formula such as Freederm. If this is of limited benefit see your doctor for a prescription strength gel such as Dalacin or Duac. Your doctor can also give you a course of oral antibiotics such as oxytetracycline, which attack the bacteria which cause spots. If you are female, taking an antiandrogen contraceptive pill such as Diane35 (Dianette) or Yasmin will be helpful.

Avatar f tn To get rid of stretch marks well to help them did anyone get the merderma normal gel for scars/stretch marks or the merderma cream especially for stretch marks I can't seem to get many reviews for the cream but gel there's loads.. Don't want to order it as it's £35 and get the wrong one lol any help would be great!
Avatar f tn I have had a clear skin with occasional breakouts. I used to take Isotretinoin 20mg and Azithromycin(500mg) and a Benzoyl Peroxide based soap and Clindamycin ointment. Recently in my anxiety to get rid of my acne scars, I used Mederma, that cleared my skin but again, I started getting severe acne. So, I took Isotretinoin 20mg and Azithromycin. But it didn't work.Also, I discontinued the Isotretinoin course and took this ointment, Persol Forte ( Benzoyl Peroxide with ppt Sulfur).
3136949 tn?1369524705 Iv been reading reviews and looking at different dopplers im pretty sure im gonna order the sonoline B the pink one.... but my question is what ultrasound gel is best the generic comes with it free but they off a aquasonic gel for 5$ extra does anyone know the different???
Avatar n tn The doctor can prescribe a suitable topical gel such as Differin or Duac. A course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline may also be indicated. Female acne patients will benefit from taking an anti-androgen or combined oral contraceptive pill such as Diane35 (called Dianette in the UK) or Ortho Tri-cyclen (called Cilest in the UK). It doesn't matter if she is not sexually active, doctors commonly prescribe the pill to treat acne as well as for contraception.
Avatar m tn 3) Is there another product i can use - a moisturizer or aloe vera gel for eg? - that will help reduce the redness and wont cause me to break out. The Derm i saw recommended Cetaphyl lotion, which i have tried but it leaves my skin feeling a bit greasy and isnt as effective as Neutrogena in not causing me to break out. 4) How long do i need to use Isotrex for? Will i break out if i stop using? Are there any dangers for long term use? i hope this might help others in the same position.
Avatar n tn ve been taking 100 mg Minocycline twice daily as directed and using the Clindoxyl gel before bedtime as directed. I change my pillowcases every 3 nights and I change my facecloth/face towel every 2 nights (2 uses). I use 1 body towel per day and I eat very healthy. Also, I NEVER touch my face as we all know what that does. Anyways, this week has been a disaster. It started out great, I've been under less stress than usual lately and been very happy.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. Arti Sharma, Thank you so much that you spent your precious time reading question. I'm on isotretinoin. Unfortunately, I used a little bit tetracycline ointment 1% on my lip. After 5 minutes, I wiped it. This story happened just one time while I'm on isotretinoin. I am scared that the amount of tetracycline ointment 1% which I applied a little bit ointment on my lip (although just 1 time while taking isotretinoin) can interact with isotretinoin.
Avatar m tn Isotretinoin 20 mg twice daily, body weight being 50 kg. Adapalene and Clindamycin gel on the face But there I have developed some side-effects like: Loss of apetite, dehydration. Increased bilrubin of 1.3 mg/dl SGOT/SGPT is normal with 24/15 Pain in bones,which has aggravated due to this Itching on the face Should I continue taking the above medications? If yes,what should be the dosage? One more question.....
Avatar f tn I am a 25 year old female. I am on isotretinoin for acne. But recently my general physician prescribed vitamin B-complex supplements for other health problems. Is it safe to take vitamin B-Complex capsules with isotretinoin? I am not any other medication.

655875 tn?1295695107 This is an over the counter gel geared for sore muscles and aches. Someone at church has a similar injury as me and swears by this gel. This gel also has really good reviews on too. I hope this helps with the muscle spasms I have since I can not take a muscle relaxer. It will get it through the mail on Wednsday next week. Anyone here use this?
Avatar n tn Topical retinoids like Differin can feel greasy when applied to the skin so are best applied before bed. Oral retinoids (isotretinoin/accutane/roaccutane) shrink the oil glands in your skin and often cause very dry skin and peeling. What type and brand of retinoid did you use? Estee Lauder make the best cleanser for oily skin i have found. You can use it regularly without any irritation. They also make a matifying toner and oil-control hydrator.
349463 tn?1333571576 I take Concept DHA prenatals simply because all the other prenatals I tried were those horrible horse pill ones that taste nasty and these are gel caps and smallish so I'm not battling with them.
Avatar m tn I am a male on isotretinoin/accutane, 20mg twice a day. my wife and I would like to start a family, but was worried if the isotretinoin would be in my semen, and have an adverse effect on the fetus/baby.
Avatar f tn If still the lumps persist then specific treatment like antibiotics,vit A supplements,corticosteroid injections,isotretinoin,antiandrogens and sometimes excision and drainage ,laser therapy and radiotherapy are found useful.I feel that you should consult a dermatologist and discuss these options with him. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn My dermatologist has prescribed me Isotretinoin (Accutane) around 20 mg. However i feel uneasy and very worried because i had read the following medical research papers where it tells the harmful side effects Isotretinoin has such as teratogenic and more importantly the cause of eye disorders, like impaired night vision, cataracts, optic neuritis, corneal opacities and dry eye. I had check in PubMed about this and i encountered the following
