Avatar n tn Hi. I am in the UK and am not familiar with Percocets. Can you tell me what the active ingredients are, I'm sure we have it here and call it something else.
Avatar n tn 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. This is because androgens (male hormones found in both male and female bodies) are responsible for stimulating the sebaceous glands and the hairs which grow from them. Eloise.
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 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.

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 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
Avatar m tn i use a drug called retane (Isotretinoin) (20 mg per day )for 2 and half months (until today) and my blood test was neutropenia 3.2( wbc) and my hematocrit was 50.3% with erythrocytosis 5.
634590 tn?1293774093 Im on 20 mg isotretinoin for about 2 weeks and for 2 days for acne by derma. im feeling extreme joint pain in my right leg. I hardly move and walk. im ruined by pain. I hv heared that joint pain due to isotretinoin is permanent and will never go after stoping iso. Is it true? Im scared please help. i was on isotretinoin in 2011, 05 mg daily but acne relapsed. Now dr told me to hv 20 mg daily.
309783 tn?1271958229 m not aware of this use of isotretinoin. I do know that the manufacturer does not recommend long-term, low-dose isotretinoin, and there is little or no scientific literature bearing on the subject of long-term low-dose use of this drug. You might consider a short course of isotretinoin, antibiotic treatment, or laser therapy. Best. Dr.
Avatar m tn I been there. I had severe acne and cysts till I was 32yrs old. I am now 33 and almost acne free. I still get acne but not enough to panic. I had it really bad. I believe I found a regimen that worked for me. I was in the same boat as you. This is what I did and it finally worked after trying every med and over the counter product there ever was. Here is my regimen, of by the way, I am really light skinned and have oily skin.
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 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 n tn m not sure which medication you are refering to. Do you mean oral Isotretinoin? This is usually tablets (Accutane/Roaccutane) but can be prescribed as a syrup. Female patients must use two forms of birth control (pill plus condoms) whilst on Isotretinoin because 90% of unborn babies exposed to this drug develop serious birth defects. You must continue with this for 5 weeks after finishing treatment as the drug stays in your body for this long.
Avatar n tn What are the best nappies to buy for newborns in the UK??? Today I was recommended aldis nappies?
Avatar n tn If a fair trial of these medicine results in failure or relapse your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist. A dermatologist can prescribe Oral Isotretinoin (previously branded as Accuatne) which is the strongest acne treatment available. Best Wishes, Eloise (community leader).
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.
309783 tn?1271958229 When acne and rosacea are both present and oral Isotretinoin is used, do telangiectasias tend to resolve, or do oral retinoids worsen this problem (as reported with topical retinoids) ? Eloise.
Avatar f tn Accutane is a sort of Vitamin A and it reduces the secretion of oil in our skin and helps renew skin more quickly. It is only one brand of isotretinoin. Accutane or any brand of isotretinoin cannot be used during pregnancy. It cannot be used without prescription because it is life threatening. It is only prescribed to patient with severe acne that did not respond to other treatment.
Avatar m tn m using isotretinoin. Then i got some ulcers on my lips and my doctor said its because of the isotretinoin. Then he prescribed minoz 50. I can't bear this acne anymore...
Avatar m tn You do not need to be concerned. It has been shown conclusively that isotretinoin, the active ingredient in Decutan, does not cause birth defects in sexual partners of men taking this drug, despite the fact that minute amounts have been found in semen. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn I just researched slimball2 because I got a mailer about it. Seemed too good to be true and found it is. Address and docs seem flaky. UK doesn't want them advertising there. They are based in US, but not a lab... In a shopping plaza. This is a scam. Thier cust svc person even said the ads are incorrect & you would have to order the large order to have enough for 30 days and only lose 2-3 lbs per week. Hoodia is good IF you can get the REAL thing.
Avatar m tn 3) Can i use X5 hair laser and Isotretinoin in the same period ??? Cause I read that isotretinoin produces photosensitivity and I would not suffer irritation or problems to the scalp. Thank you for the attention . I'm sorry for my bad english . I hope that you have understand my problems !!!
