Not sure if I've been extremely lucky, or if it's just the calm before the storm but I have hardly experienced any side effects. *Knock on wood* Lips are still dryer than usual, but thankfully not chapped. I have noticed some improvement on the acne in my cheeks, but have sparked a breakout on the top of my back, which I never had before. I will try to post pictures of my face tomorrow so look for it the gallery section.
I just started working out at Planet Fitness, and am hoping that I will be able to keep any join or muscle pain to a minimum. I heard that within the first month or two people start to notice that. Fingers crossed!! I have also been drinking almost 1/2 a pitcher of home made smoothies again, eating veggie burgers and trying to decrease my fried/junk food intake. I've been told that it's really important to watch what you eat on this medication and to make sure that you're not filling your body with crap, which I've been doing for the past 2 weeks (oops!). Time to get back on track!!
Also, I should note that I am taking 20mg of Absorica once a day, I don't think I ever mentioned which medication or the dosage before and that does make a huge difference in the experience each individual has. I will be seeing my doctor this upcoming Thursday, so we'll see whether he decides to up the dosage or keep it the same.
