End Of Month 1!

Posted by perrielevi97, 03 April 2014 · 125 views

Just got back from the derm- I'm so happy with how Accutane is going! I had a minor nosebleed a couple days ago, but the normal side effects are completely tolerable. I think I'm going to have to start wearing my glasses more, though.

I wanted to post each week so I'd have something to look  back on and be able to see progress, but I really don't have m...

End Of Week 3!

Posted by perrielevi97, 28 March 2014 · 126 views

I have my monthly check in at the derm next week! So far Accutane has been going a lot better than I thought it would. This week the dryness really kicked in- nose, corners of my mouth, cheeks- but I barely noticed until I yawned and my mouth felt like it cracked. Still, not a biggie.

End Of Week 2

Sun sensitivity, a minor rash on my hand...it's nothing compared to what it could be and especially nothing when I think about having clear skin. Yesterday was the last birthday I'l...

Accutane- End Of Week One!

I can't decide if I'm happy or disappointed with Accutane so far. On the plus side, I haven't had any side effects. On the down side, it makes me feel like Accutane isn't working. I keep having to remind myself it's only been a week!

My face has become a bit oily so far and my cheeks are slightly red. I've had a couple break outs underneath my chin, but...

Accutane Day 1!

Posted by perrielevi97, 06 March 2014 · 132 views

I finally had a follow up derm appointment and picked up my Accutane (I got Myorisan). He's starting me at 40 mg once a day. Obviously, so far no side effects. I usually drink 3 litres of water daily as well as about 6 cups of various decaffeinated teas, but I'm stepping my water game up even more while on this medication! :)
I'm currently using Cetaphil...
