I have a customer who has been off of accutane for a year now. When can she start tanning again? Are there any precautions to be taken? Any advice? She has very dry skin because of the medicine, will tanning only dry her out worse?

She should check with her doc or pharmacist to find out how long it stays in your system. She will definitely need to MOISTURIZE!! I think they say 6 weeks but check to be sure.

I'm sorry to get this thread off-topic, but it's soooo funny what your name means in Dutch: "misery"...

Just thought you'd like to know.

Accutane is NOT a drug to mess with. You canít use wax hair removers, have dermabrasion, or laser skin treatments while you are taking Accutane and for at least 6 months after you stop taking it. Because scarring may result.
You canít even donate blood for 30 days after you stop taking it because if the blood recipient is pregnant and if the donated blood contains any level of Accutane it could lead to birth defects.

This drug is very DANGEROUS

DONíT BE FOOLISH wait till you stop taking Accutane to tan.

Re: accutane

a horrible invention by the dermatologists that is supposed to clear your skin but the side effects include suicide, loss of hair, kidney failure.

But tanning is bad for you...

Accutane, a chemical cousin of vitamin A, is prescribed for the treatment of severe, disfiguring cystic acne that has not cleared up in response to milder medications such as antibiotics. It works on the oil glands within the skin, shrinking them and diminishing their output. You take Accutane by mouth every day for several months, then stop. The antiacne effect can last even after you have finished your course of medication.

Some side effects

Serious brain problems. Accutane can increase the pressure in your brain. This can lead to permanent loss of sight, or in rare cases, death. signs of increased brain pressure: bad headache, blurred vision, dizziness, nausea, or vomiting. Also, some patients taking Accutane have had seizures (convulsions) or stroke.

Abdomen (stomach area) problems. Certain symptoms may mean that your internal organs are being damaged. These organs include the liver, pancreas, bowel (intestines), and esophagus (connection between mouth and stomach). If your organs are damaged, they may not get better even after you stop taking Accutane. symptoms severe stomach, chest or bowel pain, trouble swallowing or painful swallowing, new or worsening heartburn, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, yellowing of your skin or eyes, or dark urine.

Bone and muscle problems. Accutane may affect bones, muscles, and ligaments and cause pain in joints or muscles. There are reports that some patients have had stunted growth after taking Accutane for acne as directed. There are also some reports of broken bones or reduced healing of broken bones after taking Accutane for acne as directed. No one knows if taking Accutane for acne will affect your bones. Muscle weakness with or without pain can be a sign of serious muscle damage

Hearing problems. Some people taking Accutane have developed hearing problems. It is possible that hearing loss can be permanent

Vision problems. While taking Accutane you may develop a sudden inability to see in the dark, so driving at night can be dangerous. This condition usually clears up after you stop taking Accutane, but it may be permanent. Other serious eye effects can occur.

Lipid (fats and cholesterol in blood) problems. Many people taking Accutane develop high levels of cholesterol and other fats in their blood. This can be a serious problem. Return to your prescriber for blood tests to check your lipids and to get any needed treatment. These problems generally go away when Accutane treatment is finished.

Allergic reactions. In some people, Accutane can cause serious allergic reactions. Stop taking Accutane and get emergency care right away if you develop hives, a swollen face or mouth, or have trouble breathing or develop a fever, rash, or red patches or bruises on your legs.

Signs of other possible serious problems. Accutane may cause other problems. breathing (shortness of breath), fainting, very thirsty or urinate a lot, feel weak, have leg swelling, convulsions, slurred speech, problems moving, or any other serious or unusual problems. Frequent urination and thirst can be signs of blood sugar problems.
Serious permanent problems do not happen often. However, because the symptoms listed above may be signs of serious problems If not treated, they could lead to serious health problems. Even if these problems are treated, they may not clear up after you stop taking Accutane.

The common less serious side effects of Accutane are dry skin, chapped lips, dry eyes, and dry nose that may lead to nosebleeds. People who wear contact lenses may have trouble wearing them while taking Accutane and after therapy. Sometimes, peopleís acne may get worse for a while. These are not all of Accutaneís possible side effects.
