It has been awhile since I have updated. During that time nothing really changed. It has now. I'm just getting into my third month and my face is FINALLY completely clear. I have ONE small pimple that has been around for a long time but it is small and going away. I am completely AMAZED when I look in the mirror.   My side effects are still around. S...

claravis, accutane, second week and 6 more...
Day 11, oddly enough my side effects seem to have improved rather than gotten worse? Has this happened to anyone else? This worries me. My dry eyes that were terrible just 2 days ago are now manageable, my dry nose is barely bothering me at all and my dry lips are mild compared to what they were 2 days...

I decided I'd really like to document my progress. This medication is pretty intense. Today is the first day of my second week. I am currently on 60 mg per day. It seems a little high? I'm 24 years old, 5'7" and 120 lbs. I see a lot of people on 20-40 mg but I guess my derm knows better than me. I've only gotten 3 white heads since...
