Week 10

I kind of forgot last week, but no real changes to report any how!

I went and saw the dermo yesterday for the first time since starting (accutane) and they actually apologised for not putting me on prednisolone at the start- said no way it would of gotten this bad and swollen! (thanks guys). So I left with a script for that and the sad news that they are just going to keep me on this dose (since I had such a bad initial breakout) for the total time of 18 months!! WTF!?

i am hoping badly that it gets better wayyy before then and I can stop earlier. My face has actually cleared up ALOT with no new marks for about 2 weeks now, it is just still red and kinda mushy in places, and if I put pressure on it will leak like yellow watery puss stuff (sorry). Fair gross.

Any how, no new side effects. I remember when I was on pred last time it made me not hungry- and tane makes me starving, so maybe on both I'll go back normal haha

Sweetie please you can not be on accutane for 18 months that is really irresponsible of them! What dose are you on? I might consider switching dermatologists.

I go to a hospital so it's almost a different dermo every time, I've had the same ones a few times but its hard! The hospital is only open Friday afternoons and is a 3 hr drive, kind of annoying- but! It's free.. They do seem like good doctors though. I'm only only 20s so my dose is really low- they were just really concerned that the IB would happen again if they notched it up, so a longer course is required. I really doubt ill need that long .
