So my skin is VERY different from when I started accutane. For the past 2 weeks I have been moved up my dosage.
(If you're new--read my other posts)
-30 mg for 2 weeks
-60 mg for 1.5 weeks--too much too soon--BAD Initial Breakout
-30 mg odd days, 60 mg even days for 1.5 weeks
***60 mg every day for the past 2 weeks

I'm pretty excited because I am officially done with my 1st month on Accutane.
Beginning Dosage
I did like 2 weeks taking one 30mg pill per day, but then my derm bumped me up to one 30mg pill per day, and 2 30mg pills every other day. (so 30mg total on odd days, 60mg total on even days). 
Initial Breakout
I think going up this much wa...

Okay, so recap--
I am only 3 weeks into Accutane, but I started at a pretty medium dosage (30mg once/day). Then after a couple of weeks, I bumped up to 30mg once/day on odd calendar days and 60mg once/day on even calendar days. I think it might have been a bit too much too soon for my skin, and I had an initial breakout (which was made a lot worse...

Advice For Healing Recent Red Marks?

Posted by hope2013, 24 March 2014 · 347 views

Hey I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how to heal very recent red marks from acne while on Accutane?
I've been using toner, Aveeno clear complexion moisturizer, Olay regenerist moisturizer, and Vitamin E, and they're helping but nothing's really healing the red mark. 
I know most of this is due to the Accutane slowing the healing pr...

Healing Slowly

Posted by hope2013, 23 March 2014 · 285 views

My skin still isn't looking that great..but the 2 huge red marks are slowly healing after applying toner and moisturizer to them for the past few days. I have a couple red marks on my forehead, which I'm less worried about because I could always cover those with my hair or a hat or something. But I'm hoping those go away too. 
I only have one...

So I know this might sound stupid or weak, but I stayed home today...mostly because of my acne.
I knew that for my recent acne red marks/ scabs to heal, I had to moisturize them and not wear makeup.. I just couldn't bear to even slap on makeup and go through my whole day making my face worse (potentially).
This is why I hate acne...It makes...

Hey everyone...
So I took my first pill of 60mg today. It was fine, but I could tell my face and lips were a bit more dry.
But I am in need of major encouragement because of the crazy number of red marks all over my face :/
It's really, really disheartening to put concealer on like 10+ red marks on my face just to feel comfortable going outs...

So, if you are just starting to read my blog, I'm back on Accutane because I only did 3 months at 40mg before.
Previous 3 Month Experience with Accutane
I was on Accutane from the end of July to October (about 3 months) when I had an issue with a failed birth control method. My derm wanted me to go off Accutane for a couple of months until we knew...

Accutane Day 16

Posted by hope2013, 15 August 2013 · 728 views
I finished the end of Week 2 a couple of days ago and not much has happened since. I got a couple of small pimples/ blackheads that came and went away. Right now I only have 3 tiny red marks from clogged pores that are healing and going away. My skin hasn't been that dry yet, but has been less oily, which is nice. Same with my hair, but only a bit. I...

ITCH NO MORE! I have been taking 40mg of Accutane (one pill) per day. Tomorrow will be Day 10. I have experienced a bit of dryness so far in my hair and scalp, lips, eyes, and face. I watched about 30 Accutane diary videos, have read more than 50 Accutane blogs, and have spoken with my dermatologist about products to use while on Accutane to combat t...
