Day 73 Accutane

Day 73 Accutane

So today is my eyes are really dry but i jsut apply artificial tears and my eyes feel better.

I have been ok break out wise. I Developed a cysts on my tempoals again near my eye brows (corners)

They usuaully go down then a week later they are back and seem inflammed...

I will be going to the docotors on June 26 but i expect to be a lott better...

I am now using a restoring cream from Cetaphil instruced by the derma and i LOVE the cream since i feel like it controls the flakeyness.

Other than that im doing great!!

I have not drank bc i really want this to work and i use aquaphor like crazy.;;

Really miss having normal lips haha

Day 37 Accutane

Day 37

Had my first month visit yesterday, doc says the pills seems to be working great. MY symptoms are super dried lips but aquaphor is helping a lot! I will continue to stay on the alternating dosage of 40 mg one day and 2 (40)mg the second day.

I am pleased with the results since i am not in much pain right now. I will update on day 49.

Active: Temporals.

Day 34 Of Accutane

Day 34

Its day 34 on accutane. My temporals have improved tremendously (when i started taking "the pill" the sides near my eyes broke out)

I am upset since i broke out with 3 white heads over the past week and are pretty painful.

It kinda makes me feel good since i haven't seen a white head in ages since

i am use to getting cyst so i am hoping that means the meds are working properly.

I have my 1st months visit in two days. I am currently on 40mg 1 day and 2 40mg pills the following day.

Side Effects.


Dry Eyes at night.

Flakey chin!!!!!!!!!!!!

and red cheeks

I am currently cleansing my face with Cervae and moisturizing with Cervae am and pm at night.

Follow Up

Day 27:

I have been less dry, less flakey for sure. I still use the aquaphor like crazy for my dry lips. I can wait as this seems to be working a lot! I'm super happy with the results thus far.


Day 17

My face is pretty dry, I have been flacky near my mouth and chin. My temporals, near my eyebrows is the main area in which I have some tiny bumps...

Nothing too bad:)

Day 14

The cyst I had on my jawline in gone, dried up so quick!!!

My face is still dry but nothing unbearable. I have appointment in 2 weeks. Currently taking 40/80 mg. pretty happy so far..


So i started my Accutane last week 3/25/13 and have been taking 40 mg a day. The doctor said to do a 40mg one day and 2 the next. I didn’t do it the first week so my skin could adapt to the pill so i might do it this week since i feel better. I have one cyst in the back of my jawline which is so irritating! I use Cervae to wash my face morning and night and use the am moisturizer and the pm moisturizer at night. If you all recommend something else id appreciate whatever will help the dryness/redness!
