So its been about 3 months since I've been off Acuutane, and the whole time I've been breaking out. So I made an appointment with my derm and she basically told me that the brand of Accutane I used (Claravis) does not work in many cases because it doesn't absorb into the body. So she told I could go on it again in another 9 months but for now she put me o...

9 Days Post Accutane.

Posted by ls206816, 04 September 2013 · 674 views

It's only been 9 days since I stopped Accutane and I'm already breaking out! I have very small white dots on the surface of my skin but in my cheeks I see clusters of cysts! I also noticed the pores in my cheeks have as enlarged.

3 Days Post Accutane

accutane, postaccutane
Hey everyone! I know I'm only been off Accutane for three days but I can already feel an improvement in dryness with my lips. I now can go with applying chapstick only about 3-4 times a day and not every 15 minutes! Also today I decided to buy a acne wash just as a preventive measure, so that hopefully my acne wont return. I'm still super paranoid! So I b...

Day 220 Of Accutane! Finally Done!

Posted by ls206816, 26 August 2013 · 884 views

So I went to the dermatologist today and surprisingly my derm left so I now have a new one! I actually really like her! She's really friendly and positive sounding! So anyway she looked at my face and told me I could finally be done with accutane after taking it for a long 7 months! My skin isn't completely clear but its 99.9% better than it ever was befo...

Day 207 Of Accutane

Posted by ls206816, 13 August 2013 · 688 views
So no new breakouts since the last post! I'm doing pretty good on 60mg the only side effect is that the inside of my nose is soo dry! My face isn't that dry which is really surprising and weird since I was super dry on 20, 40, and 80mg! Also I was super dry last time I was on 60mg. I'm not even using a moisturizer anymore! Basically I wash my face in the...

Day 187 Of Accutane.

Posted by ls206816, 24 July 2013 · 623 views

Went to the dermatologist today and he lowered my dose to 60mg. So I plan on taking 60mg for the first week and then Im going to lower it to 30mg to see if my face stays clear then I want to get off of it. Its been 6 months now and I figure if my skin doesn't clear up during the 7th it probably wont. Also I don't want to be on Accutane while in schoo...

Day 185 Of Accutane.

Posted by ls206816, 22 July 2013 · 550 views

Finally I have made it to my 7th month! I go to see the dermatologist on Thursday. Basically this month I was suppose to be on 80mg but I've only been taking 40mg which was the recommended dose from my dermatologist if I was going to be out in the sun. I'm still not totally clear. I have a few small whiteheads on my cheeks and on my chin and one above my...

Day 172 Of Accutane.

Hey guys! I am now in my 6th month (I think, I'm honestly no longer keeping track) so everything is good right now. I just got back from my vacation in the Bahamas. On the second day I got terrible sunburn on my feet! It really didnt hurt too bad and I just had some blisters. But it didn't ruin my vacation! I did get sunburn all over the rest of my body e...

Day 153 Of Accutane. My Eyebrows Are Falling Out.

Posted by ls206816, 21 June 2013 · 798 views

So today I noticed that in one of my eyebrows there's a patch of hair missing. It's not too noticeable but I noticed it! So I will be cutting down my Accutane from 80mg to 60mg because this completely freaked me out! Hopefully it will grow back soon!

Day 142 Of Accutane.

Posted by ls206816, 10 June 2013 · 761 views

So I'm 10 days away from the end of my 5th month of Accutane. And I still have acne. I just had a pretty big breakout on my cheeks that is now almost healed but I'm still having little breakouts on the side of my face and under my chin and jawline. Also in my last post I told you all I got 2nd degree burns on my face. So I went to my dermatologist and he...
