I am now on week 3 of 30mg/day roaccutane + 2 prednisolone pills (cba to check spelling, think its right tho). I suffered a 'second' IB around the end of week 2, when my antibiotics but since then its been great. I have one active lesion on my face, which I didn't expect. Before that, after IB settled, I didn't even think about my skin, only occasionally in some lighting. Once this lesion goes it will be much the same. To go from literally constantly looking at my skin, to not caring due to its fairly decent appearance, in 3 weeks is remarkable. I'm now just waiting for the red marks to fade practically. My dose will be upped in a week, more updates then.

The only side effect I find annoying is dry lips and just general dryness in the mouth area. I look a bit weird constantly put on lip balm and drinking gallons of water per day but its a small price to pay. My skin is no longer oily, that took over a week to calm down.

I'm seeing derm soon, so maybe they will take blood and we can see how the old liver is doing...
