Here We Go...

accutane start pictures
Well here I am.  I finally gave in to my doctors urging to take Accutane.  I guess I kept avoiding it because I was worried about potential side effects, but after having the worst few months of acne I've ever had in my life... I realized the time had come to just do it already.  Oddly enough after having to wait almost 2 months to actually start (between the pregnancy test and blood work and whatnot) my skin right now is actually not at it's worst (but it's still not "normal" by any means...)  Today is day 2.  I am on 30mg.  5'2" female, somewhere around 128ish lbs (I am on Weight Watchers right now as well so hopefully that number will be going down) Posted Image

Anyhoos, as of today I feel the same as always.  I started using CeraVe cream on my face as I heard it was a great moisturizer and I am trying to avoid getting too dry.  I am also already using Aquaphor and Ayr Nasal Gel on my lips and nose daily and nightly to, again, hopefully avoid the super dryness that comes with Accuatne.

I figured keeping track of how I feel and how my face looks would help me get through this and make me want to stick it out if or when I feel I want to give up.  I am hoping I will somehow have a super easy time and my face will gorgeous by the time I am done, but thats probably just the eternal optimist in me Posted Image   I guess only time will tell.

Heres are pics I took yesterday before I took my first pill...

Today I`am in third day of accutane(sotret) just like you 30mg per day.
My acne is wrost than yours.So don`t be sad, ur not alone.
You think Cetaphil cleanser is good? what about their moisturizer?

Thanks! I use Cetaphil cleanser and I love it, and I normally use Cetaphil lotion and love that too, but since my skin is typically dry to begin with I switched to CeraVe cream during my course since I figured I'm most likely going to get extremely dry.

Good luck to you as well! Pretty cool that we're basically on the same schedule. I will be hoping for the best for both of us!! :)
