Day 37?

Posted by i hope this works, 23 January 2013 · 534 views
So everything is still going very well. I didn't really need to worry about the dose increase. I am experiencing redness, but so far that is it. No flaky skin, just dry lips.

one month in, love accutane and 1 more...
I just took my 30th pill. I've been an Clarus for one month. Things could not be better! My skin looks amazing, I had ridiculously shiny skin, it's not shiny at all any more. I only wear a primer and a powder when I go out. I only have to wash my hair 2 or three times a week. I'm amazed. Starting tomorrow I will be increasing my dosage (as...

Day 17

The redness, oily skin, and bumps are all gone. I'm actually pretty thrilled with my skin right now. I can only really complain about one thing and that is the blackheads! I have SO MANY on my chin where I never had them before. I will gladly take blackheads over the giant, swollen, painful pimples I used to get. I read somewhere that this is a...

cure, oil, skin, clarus
Last night I did not put any moisturizer on before going to bed. I wanted to see if that would stop the oily skin. I don't know why I didn't think of it before! When I woke up this morning my skin was great! It was not oily. That has never happened to me before! Amazing. I also noticed that I have a very little bit of flaking skin on my...

Day 6

OK - I didn't mention this earlier because I thought maybe it was my imagination but I am certain of it now. My skin is becoming MORE oily, and it's red and it feels irritated. I thought this was supposed to dry out my skin! I feel really gross. I guess this is what I signed up for! YIKES Still no initial break out but I guess it's still...

Day 5

Today is day 5, although, because I take my pills with dinner I haven't yet taken my fifth pill. I did not have an initial break out but I didn't expect to. I've been on Clindoxyl for two months it completely cleared me up. I am still using it but will stop if my face gets too dry.
I still have oily skin, no dryness yet. My lips are a bit dry...

first day, accutane, clarus
Today is my first day on Accutane (well actually is a generic version called Clarus). Obviously I don't have any symptoms yet. My dermatologist has me on 40mg a day for the first month then for the rest of the course I will alternate daily between 40mg and 80mg. I am excited but very nervous about the possible side effects.
I wanted to also note that I...
