About this blog

My (second) Accutane log. PLUS TIPS!!!

Entries in this blog

Hi, welcome to my Accuatne blog!!! Please feel free to comment and discuss anything you would like. I would really love to hear from you. I have been through this before and have read (what feels like) millions of blogs on Accutane.

I am going to keep this as short as possible. I began having severe acne when I was 14. I tried everything for four years...and I mean EVERYTHING! Finally, my dermatologist told me it was time for Accutane. BEST DECISION EVER! It kept me clear for about six years. But about 9 months ago I started breaking out again mad.gif! I literally woke up one morning and have about 10 new cystic type zits. Keep in mind after Accutane I maybe got about two zits (small) a YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! I was devastated, to say the least. I went to my derm and she gave me Spironolactone to try and fix the problem, it helped but didn't clear me up. SOOOOOOOOO back to Accutane. I am super depressed about doing it again, but I need to get it over with. The thing I am most worried about is the fact that I have had some joint problems SINCE Accutane which I suspect has something to do with the drug. So I am being extra protective this time around.

My medication/supplements:

-Accutane (Zenatane): 40 mgs

-Fish Oil

-Vitamin E

-Glucosamine

-Hyaluronic Acid

-Zinc

-Milk Thistle

-Calcium

PLEASE TALK TO ME WHILE I GO THROUGH THIS I WOULD LOVE COMPANY AND SUPPORT! wub.png
