Day 36 - Claravis

accutane/claravis
What's new: One small active pimple on jawline. Little pimple on lip line.

My face: Only the small pimple on jawline and small bump on lipline (not visible). I still have about 5 red marks on my jawline from old pimples. Face isn't dry anymore at all. Redness is going away. Haven't seen an IB since I upped my dose from 40-60mg/day.

Everything else: Nothing new. Side effects are very minimal: sometimes some pain in lower back after sitting in one place for too long, and when I go on a run, places on my arms burn a little which I assume is from sweat getting in dry skin patches? That only happens on the back of my shoulder/upper arm area. It goes away once I stop sweating. Not a big deal.

Since I started accutane I hadn't done anything to my eyebrows, no waxing, which I usually do (but can't on accutane), and no plucking b/c I usually don't have to. So they were a mess. On Sunday, I went to an eyebrow threading place for the first time. And it was great. No irritation of the skin at all, no burning - just clean shaped eyebrows. And, it took under 2 minutes. It was great. I'll never go back to waxing my eyebrows.




Hey girl! I got my 60mg script on Friday. Walmart didn't have the 30mg packs so I went to Walgreens. On the receipt it shows how much the meds were before insurance and it totaled 688.85... better than 800. I just I'd share because that's a ton of money. ALSO after watching that TLC show about the couponing (althought it's crazy and I'd never ACTUALLY do it) I was curious to see what kind of coupons they had online; I happen to stumble upon coupons.com and I saw a coupon for up to 75% off a prescription at any pharmacy. I don't know if it would work, but it's worth trying.

Yeah, that's definitly better than the $800 I'm paying, any less would help! I think I'll give the walgreens a call that's in my area and see what they say. 75% off prescriptions! I bet accutane isn't under the category though, right? Are you going to try the coupon next month? Def worth a try! Thanks for sharing the info on the Rx cost at walgreens!!
