ok, so last year i was a teacher in south korea and decided to go on accutane there. i was on a low dose of 20 mg per day for 3 months, and then 10 mg for the last month. during these months, and after, i was on differin as well. the combination of the two cleared up my face and body completely (i’m a 25 year old female who suffers cysts all over the body, and has extremely oily skin, even on my neck and the sides of my face).
however, about 2 or 3 months after going off the accutane, my face strted to break out again. i kept using differin, and i quit smoking, and began eating more healthy foods and doing yoga, hoping this holistic approach would help. but no. my acne is just as bad, if not worse, than before i went on ‘tane. but now i scar more easily.
now, since i am away from the wonderful and convenient korean health care system, and am back home working, but with no insurance, i need to go back on accutane again. my derm in korea warned that i may have to do it again, since i was on such a low dose for such a short time. however, i can’t afford to see a derm, (i can go see a doc and pay a sliding fee for general lab work, so that’s not a problem), and i can’t afford to buy accutane at full price, and i don’t want to go on birth control (i’m gay, so it’s not necessary, though a demr would probably make me go on it anyway).
i am hoping that one of you out there has extra accutane they would be willing to give or sell to me discreetly. i know this is taboo, buti am extremely responsible, lead a healthy lifestyle, will get regular blood work, and tolerated accutane wonderfully when i was on it the first time (barely even chapped lips).
if someone has gone off roaccutane and wants the extra off their hands, please email me at [email protected] and we can discuss it away from this forum. i have paypal and could also send a money order or whatever you would prefer.
i know this is against the rules, but i don’t see any other way. i did try to set up an appointment with a derm, but every single derm in maine within a 150 mile radius is booked until at least august/sept, and charges $150 for an initial visit and at least $80 for followups. i can’t afford that, even with the two jobs i’m working. i’m not eligible for health insurance with my employer until at least 6 months form now. i don’t want to wait that long because my skin is getting in the way of my emotional well being, happiness, and self-confidence. i’ve tried everything under the sun, and nothing works but accutane.
i know someone out there must be willing to help me out of this predicament.
thanks so much,
