IPledge For Accutane

Andrew Wilson

FDA Puts New Restrictions on AccutaneAccutane is the most effective drug we have to treat acne, but also the most controversial. The media has been irresponsible at times by reporting stories of questionable side effects and in effect “demonizing” this very safe and useful drug. However, the one side effect that is not in any way “questionable” is that Accutane can cause birth defects and therefore cannot be given to a woman who may become pregnant. New Restrictions:In an effort to eliminate Accutane-related birth defects, the thousands of Americans who take the acne drug Accutane — and people who prescribe and dispense it — must now enroll in a national registry.Tip: To cure acne you should avoid makeup products altogether. Most makeup products are made from oils which further irritate your skin and cause you to have breakouts.Under the program, every patient — men and women — must enroll in the iPLEDGE computerized registry starting Dec. 31 2006 to receive Accutane or generic versions of the drug isotretinoin. Doctors must register, too, if they wish to continue prescribing the pills. Drugstores and wholesalers also must register in order for the pills’ manufacturers to ship them any supplies. Additional Step for Women: Women must undergo two tests to ensure they’re not pregnant in a laboratory or doctor’s office before the initial prescription, and monthly pregnancy testing before each refill. Home pregnancy tests don’t count. The doctor must enter the pregnancy test results into the iPLEDGE system, and the woman must buy her pills within seven days. Tip: Always wash your hands and face after brushing and flossing your teeth. Acne is caused by bacteria.* These women also must agree to use two forms of birth control while using Accutane, and must self-register on iPLEDGE — in addition to the doctor’s initial registration — to report that they’re doing so. There’s no way to know if women lie in thi… Read more

Why Wasn’t I Told This About Acne As A Teenager?

Andrew Wilson

I don’t know if it was puberty or hormonal upheaval but friends I do know this, my teenage years were miserable because of one thing: Acne. Well, based on what some people say about Positive thinking and all, I guess I allowed it to have too much control over me. However, at that age, how the heck was I to know about all that? Moreover, with bumps, bumps and more bumps all over my face, it was kind of hard you know. I doubt if any girl would have wanted to kiss a guy with a big red bump nestled on his lip today or his nose the next. Tip: Zinc will help to heal your acne. Zinc, which is found in beef, pork, nuts, beans and fortified cereals, is essential for healthy skin.Needless to say those were sad years and had I known then what I know now about acne, folks, it would have been a different story. Either way it goes, I still come across helpless and understandably sad teenagers almost on a daily basis so if it helps any: if you are a teenager or know of a teenager who is plagued with pimples, here are a few tips that should help you cure your acne in no time. 1. First and foremost, I care not what some sites and product endorsers say about how diet doesn’t affect acne; you have got to make a change in your eating habits, plain and simple. You are what you eat. If you want to have clearer skin and the added bonus of improved health, of course eating right will be essential. That said: Fruits and vegetables friends. Shop more in the produce aisle and steer clear of the snack stands at the cash register. I know it may sound boring for a teenager but trust me, it’s worth the sacrifice and this forms the basis of an internal acne treatment right there from its root cause.Tip: Changing your pillow case regularly, can reduce the amount of acne breakouts that you have. Pillow cases can trap dirt and oil that can clog up your pores, even if they appear to be clean.2.For external acne-c… Read more
