February 10 (Day 61 On Claravis)

Posted by jhdlasaylor, 10 February 2013 · 276 views

I'm hardly getting any breakouts. I decided to post in longer increments since there isn't a lot of changes at this point. I get a breakout once a while especially on my back. Since I've been taking 40mg twice daily I have noticed red, itchy, scabby sores on the back of my hands and in my upper arms. I'm using CereVe cream but it only eases it a little. I...

January 17 (Day 37 On Claravis)

Two days ago I had a pretty severe breakdown. I didn't expect to feel that bad during my treatment but since I had depression before I started the medication I shouldn't be surprised. My breakdown started with just a lot of crying and that led to suicidal thoughts. Jason had to come home from work early just to bring me out of it. It was scary. My...

January 11 (Day 31 On Claravis)

Starting today I'm now on 80mg of Claravis. I met with my behavioral therapist today and she says I have increased anxiety and depression because of an increase in OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) caused from the Accutane. The dermatologist said my skin, lips, and nose are as dry as they are going to get which isn't nearly as bad as I thought it...

January 1 (Day 21 On Claravis)

Day 21 on Isotretinoin and I'm still feeling hopeful. I haven't had any major breakouts just really small pimples here and there. It looks like my blackheads are being pushed out of my nose and chin, but I don't know if its because of the dry skin or not. My nose is annoyingly dry, Chapstick is my best friend, and I'm drinking tons of water...

December 28 (Day 17 On Claravis)

Today is day 17 on Isotretinoin. I'm having a hard time telling if I have a cold, the flu, or side effects from the medication. My throat is killing me, my nose is stuffy and dry at the same time, and my lips are super chapped. My emotions seem to be stable at this point. I don't think I'm over-emotional or easily upset. Hoping to get down to...

December 22 (Day 11 On Claravis)

Today is day 11 on the Isotretinoin. I saw a behavioral therapist last Thursday and got a lot of things off my chest to keep my depression under control. Jason has been my biggest support and for that I'm thankful. My nose, eyes, and throat are still really dry. I started getting bloody noses a few days ago but not anything serious. I'm still in...

December 16 (Day 4 On Claravis)

Posted by jhdlasaylor, 01 January 2013 · 414 views

Today is day 4 on the Isotretinoin. So far pretty descent. My acne is bad but not horrible so I'm hoping for successful results. I'm starting to get dry lips, my voice is hoarse and raspy, and I'm dry around my eyes and mouth. Getting headaches on and off but it's hard to tell if its from the weather or not. I'm still in good spirits and...
