My experiences on accutane

Entries in this blog

Days 14,15,16

Writing in bunches now, since there isn't much to really talk about. Few acne here and there nothing crazy. If you are thinking about Accutance I would recommend it so far. Side effects are not bad at 20mg per day and you don't really have too much to worry about. Plus I do feel like the acne under my skin is slowly going away.

Days 10,11,12

So I've gotten kinda lazy since I don't really have any motivation of keeping this log... But anyways no side effects even the dry skin is becoming tolerable. Enjoying my last few days at college before I leave for London!! Face is clear, but I still don't think the drug has kicked in.

Days 10,11,12

So I've gotten kinda lazy since I don't really have any motivation of keeping this log... But anyways no side effects even the dry skin is becoming tolerable. Enjoying my last few days at college before I leave for London!! Face is clear, but I still don't think the drug has kicked in.

Day 9

Same side effects as the day before. I drank two beers today to see if alcohol and accutane react negatively (no negative effect). Still don't recommend drinking in any way on this drug. I just was trying it out since I am at college and my 21st birthday is coming up (starting slow).

Day 7

Another spectacular day of college classes and no major side effects. I may just be getting used to all of the symptoms. I have noticed that I am slowly becoming sensitive to light and my skin does take a little longer to heal another side effect I guess.

I really hope this treatment kicks in soon. I am going to London on April 15th and would love to have clear skin by then. Keeping my fingers crossed!

My Treatment:

-20 mg Claravis once a day

-Wash my face with Clean & Clear wash

-Use another Clean and Clear body wash in the shower

-Use Clean & Clear lotion after shower (Stays all day)

-Use benzyl peroxide 10% (Not a big fan)

-Use Neosporin if necessary

Day 6

I was really sleepy today. Almost decided to skip my morning class. Other than that just dry skin and I have to drink a lot of water. Since I didn't mention this earlier I thought that I would make it clear. I am 5'7 and I weigh 130 lbs. I am on Claravis 20mg once a day. Hope this helps!

Day 5

So far so good. The dry skin is not too bad. The other major side effect to worry about is dry eyes. Since I wear contacts this is something that is really important for me. I have mild acne so I have not really seen much of a break out (I hope I don't have one). Feel free to ask me any questions!

Day 4

Skin is still tight and dry. Had an unbearable headache today that made it really hard to concentrate.

Keep thinking of Flo Rida's new song Troublemaker when I think of accutane "Why does it feel so good, but hurt so bad?"
