Posted by dino23, 26 February 2013 · 362 views

Not much to report zit/pimple wise, I have about a week left on this drug! :)But I am super scared to get off of it. Did anyone taper their drugs out? Or just stop when you run out? I feel like I want to be on a low dosage for another month or something? any suggestions? eekk! I attached a week 13 pic and this weeks pic. It is such a relief to s...

Week 22 Need Advice!

Posted by dino23, 11 February 2013 · 592 views

Went to the derm last week and was informed that this is my last month! He did say that he wants to put me on Retin-A once I am finished with Accutane. Has anyone else done this? I am just tired of using powerful topicals, I think that is where I went wrong in the first place because my skin got so use to them, once I stopped using it I got horrible...

Week 21

Posted by dino23, 04 February 2013 · 348 views

week 21 was pretty uneventful. I am noticing my hands are getting that rash again and it seems to be really dry but putting lotion on it does not seem to help and sometimes burns :( Nothing much other than that. I go to the derm on wednesday, I was told I was staying on 80mg but I am not sure for how long. I think I have one month left! but I will have to...

Week 19&20

Posted by dino23, 28 January 2013 · 516 views

Again, nothing but scars and dry skin right now. My scars look the same as they did 4 weeks ago so I am kinda bummed they aren't fading as fast.  I will say I since my dosage was upped to 80mg I noticed my tolerance for alcohol has gone down a lot! I dont really drink much on this drug, just occasionally. But I was out celebrating an engagement...

Week 18

Posted by dino23, 14 January 2013 · 651 views

Pretty much same as last week, drier skin and no new acne to report Posted Image just scars. I think it is weird how some scars take FOREVER to fade and some go away quicker. Like I had a cyst on my chin and cheek at the same time and the one on my cheek still has a dark scar and I...

Week 17

Posted by dino23, 07 January 2013 · 654 views

It was a pretty good week, I got bumped up to 80mg, where I will stay until I am finished with my course. I think 2 more months left! No new zits or cysts this week just started to get dry skin on my face which is making my scars look better because they are kinda peeling off. But makeup is harder to put on :(
Also my doctor did call me and say that...

Week 15 & 16

Posted by dino23, 02 January 2013 · 381 views

Wasn't too happy these weeks because I got 2 more cysts, one on the clear side of my face and one on my chin. They look a week and a half to go away and they are still noticeable. The worse part was that it was Christmas and I was seeing a bunch of family I haven't seen in awhile. But oh well, I still have a few months left on this drug. I still...

Week 14

Posted by dino23, 17 December 2012 · 448 views

During week 14 I had two pimples come up, one on my cheek and one on my chin- and they hurt! I thought I was done with the big ones! Oh well, it is still a lot better then the beginning. I also became really impatient with these two black heads on my chin that haven't purged out yet... actually it looked like a little bit was hanging out of the...

Week 13

Posted by dino23, 10 December 2012 · 572 views

Doing well, the only change I have noticed with two weeks on 60mg is I am so unbelievably tired and my back hurts a little more. My nose is still super dry and painful so I have been putting this gel stuff my pharmacist gave me up there so that helps. Hardly any new acne to report, some tiny ones are still...

Week 12

Posted by dino23, 04 December 2012 · 530 views

Everything has been going well, went to the derm and they bumped me up to 60mg (i was on 40mg before) I am a little scared of the side effects getting worse but I am going to give it a try. I have only taken 60mg for 3 days and I can already feel my muscles are more achy. Other then that the derm was really happy with my skin, just a bunch of scarring right...
