I haven't been on here in such a long time!
I was just looking at my first post and seeing the photos of my skin seven months ago, and i am so shocked to see how much better my skin actually is! It has definitely made me feel so much more confident in myself
I haven't had the best time on Accutane, at the end of my fifth month i saw my dermatologist and he read my blood test results and said that my liver and kidneys had start failing which was rare for someone like me, so i had stop the drug asap. I had been taking 3x 20g tablets each day, with hardly any side effects on the outside, but i didnt realise it was really damaging the inside of my body. So i stopped it for a month, and my liver and kidneys recovered, thank goodness So the derm said i can start taking it again but at a lower dose, and i am now taking 1x 20g tablet a day. I havent really got any bad side effects which i am loving!
I am not sure when i get to finish my treatment, but im hoping to find out next week when i visit my dermatologist agian
Time is flying by so quickly and i cant believe i made it so far, especially after the painful first few months! So persevere all you new accutane users, the end result is so worth it I still wish i could be finished it already, but the doctors know whats best so i'll continue until they recommend i can stop
I want to repost a picture of when i first started using accutane and some photos of my skin now (its still not perfect, but the red dots will fade eventually) Hopefully they inspire someone, and realise there is light at the end of the tunnel for everyone
Have a fantastic day everyone thank you all for support xoxo
I would really appreciate comments, feedback and questions Feel free to ask any questions about your own side effects too, i'd be happy to help anyone!
