My Journey While On Accutane

Day 120

Posted by BeccaKitty, 07 February 2014 · 163 views

So, I remembered that I had this blog! I have been on accutane (absorbica) for 4 months now. I took a month break because I don't have insurance and my self pay program got canceled, and it took time for me to be approved for another one. But thankfully I have, and I am now starting month five! My dermatologist said this will most likely be my last month,...

My dosage has been upped to 60 mg per day, so two 30 mg tablets each day! I'm super excited to up my dosage because I just want to get better as soon as possible!

I came prepared though, I have a stash of what my research calls...

accutane, acne, day 6, progress
So, this is a late first post, starting on day six and all. I am taking 40mg once per day. Nonetheless, hello anyone who wants to follow me on this journey as well! Today is day six on accutane, and I don't really notice any differences in my skin at all. I know I was supposed to stop using my topicals that I was using before while on it, but until I noti...
