I came off the medication for a week due to my chest infection, but came back on once it cleared up to finish the course. I have my final appointment tomorrow to get my post-treatment check up.
All in all, it's been pretty smooth sailing for me. I still don't know if the medicine was behind taking a long time to recover from my chest infection, but aside from that it's been fine.
Skin and lips have been dry, but not overly so. Nothing some lipsalve and a bit of moisturiser can't fix. I have been a bit tired at times, moreso than usual. I find I'm fine when I wake up, but by the time I'm leaving work I'm pretty exhausted. I'm a bit of a night owl who naturally wakes up at around 8pm but now I find I'm always in bed by like 10pm.
I think I've had like 2-3 spots since my initial breakout at the start, and I haven't had anything at all for weeks. Skin's completely clear now and has been for a while now, for the first time since I was about 12
I really hope that this continues after I am finished the treatment!
Everyone reacts differently of course, but I would recommend accutane for anyone considering. You read horror stories, but I can only speak for myself in saying it's been fine.
