Well here I am at month 4...and unfortunately have not seen any improvement. My dermatologist was hesitant to up  my dosage just because of the bloody noses I continue to have, so if anything, I may be kept on a longer course of treatment. 
Has this happened with anyone else? 
Feeling discouraged but I am definitely committed...

I am about a week into month three...and right now I am hoping this is the month to see a difference.

I still have breakouts that are slowly starting to clear -- but my dermatologist was a little concerned. I don't have severe breakouts, they are just quite annoying.

If he doesn't see any improvements by my next visit, my dosage may be increased.

Time is certainly moving quick -- even though I still wish my skin would clear up overnight! I can tell that it is trying to, so that's good at least.

I don't have much to say this week other than that I can tell the accutane is kicking in. My pores are definitely more visible....it's like all the bad is trying to leave which I could not be more excited...

Well, here I am...writing about my first week of accutane. To be honest, I never thought I would start the journey of accutane -- I was used to hearing such negative things about it, but once my dermatologist asked if I wanted to keep wasting money on creams, cleansers and antibiotics, I knew it was time for a major change. 
I tried my be...
