Acne/Roaccutane

Friends,

Never ever taken anabolic steroids mostly because I don't plan to compete ever I just do this to look good and stay trim.

My dermatologist prescribed me Roaccutane 50mg over the past 9 months but took me off them now as I am clear of acne.I still have another months worth left as she took me off them sooner than expected.

Just wondered, I paid an awful lot out with prescriptions do the Nhs refund you if you hand your old drugs back in? Haha dreaming maybe

Anyway, do you think they are worth keeping in case I do compete in the future and take anabolic steroids therefore this would be a great way to keep the acne at bay?

Anyone else use this with steroids?any good?

Thanks

    NHS don't do refunds, they'll just bin them which is a crying shame as accutane is very difficult to get hold of
     
    i don't get acne on cycle but many others do, you may be one of them tbh so i'd defo keep hold of them or flog them but for the love of god don't return them to a chemist as they'll just put them in the bin as you could have tampered with them

    Ok I am not sure I will keep them but will probably get rid of them some how, not liking the idea of the chemist just binning them seems like a waste

    Just counted them and I have 19 10mg and 61 20mg so it's rather a lot actually scary thing is I think I have boxes of them in my gym bag so it could be double or triple this amount.

    Worth keeping IMO. Although If you do end up needing them you may have to buy a few extra boxes as recommended course for long term benefits is to run at least a 15wk course at between 0.5 - 1mg per KG of bodyweight, but you'll save yourself a hell of allot of cash by hanging on to them.........Or yo can just donate them to me :)

    used it when i had really bad acne on my back, have never had a spot since, anywhere, on or off cycle, so for me it was permanent so keep them in reserve.
