accutane claravis
Dun da da duuun! Popped my first Claravis pill tonight!! (I've been calling it Clavaris, lol OOPS!) I'm in pretty high hopes now! Lately, all I've been able to think about is my acne and the scars its left behind. No, really. Its hard for me to even focus on my schoolwork. Ridiculous, I know Posted Image 
But, now its just an uphill battle, hopefully! So excited!
 
I'm gonna post every ten days, since for some reason they give out Claravis in ten day packets. I got three, so here's to my first 30 days!!
 
Currently: Taking 20 mg/day of Claravis in the morning, on an empty stomach (going to take one in the morning from now on, so I can make sure my stomach is empty)
Using Cetaphil soap and moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin.
Apple cider vinegar & water for hyper pigmentation. 
Skin is dry, but that's normal for me. Hopefully its not possible for it to get much drier!
A few pimples I woke up with this morning on either cheek, nothing too big.. two on each side of my face. Cysts I was suffering with have almost completely gone away now. Several hyper pigmentation marks on cheeks and a few on forehead.
 
Oh, I've been meaning to post something about this.. I have small bumps on me chin that are only viewable when skin is stretched. They look like pores that are really stopped up, but nothing works to make them go away? I haven't noticed this problem on anyone else, but I've had them for awhile. They don't really bother me because you can't see them unless you look REALLY close or I stretch my skin in that area. I can't really find anything about them online either? They look like really small whiteheads but they don't pop. MY skin would do weird crap like that? Anyone know what it is?
 
With my newfound confidence, I am hoping to be happier and more social from now on!! Pray for no IB stage for me Posted Image but, I'm expecting it if it decides to show up!!
Look forward to talking with you all soon & here's to clear skin!!

wishing you lots of luck!! are you going to be gradually upping the dose or staying on the 20mg? I've noticed most people don't experience the IB until they get to the high dosage. My derm started me right off at 60 mg to get it out of the way :-/ i'm on day 15 and no IB yet! fingers crossed.

 

As far as the weird white heads, i got them too... on my chin! they've since cleared and I don't have any... i swear it was JUST like a black head, only white. claravis kicked their asses! ;)

 

Wishing you the best on this journey!

Just wondering why you're taking it on an empty stomach, was this recommended by your derm or did you read this somewhere? From the reading I've done its 'better' to take accutane with food, its suppose to help with absorption, some even say take it with fatty foods.

Thank you so much!! I'm not sure how he's planning on doing it, but he didn't mention ramping up the dosage! I'll keep that in mind though!

And very excited to hear about the white head things, lol! They're SO annoying! Hope Accutane is treating you well :)

It seems like I've read that somewhere, too- but my pharmacist put a label on my prescription saying take on an empty stomach! Hope it wasn't a mistake.
