So, today is officially the end of week 2 (DAYYYY 14!) of being on Claravis 30mg two times a day and man I am happy with my results so far. I'm kind of scared to say something on here and jinx myself...but, I'll take the chance
So far, I have not had an initial breakout. I've had a few tiny whiteheads, but nothing obvious. I guess reading on here for years the awful experiences the first few weeks folks have had on Accutane and reading about the dreaded I.B. that I was totally freaked out about that. But, my skin is getting better and better each day. The bumps are going down so my skin is looking smoother, my skin is still a little oily and so is my hair, but not nearly as much as it used to be. I used to have to dab my skin almost every hour to wipe the oil...(Girls you should know how annoying that is, especially when you have makeup on! ) Also, my redness on my face has definitely gone down. I used to get out of the shower and see my tomato red face and be like WTF?! now its pink, but fading! I don't know, so far all is going well.
As for side effects, the first couple days I had this headache that was always there and constantly annoying. I don't get them anymore. I type a lot and my fingers have been aching a lot, but other then that, nothing.
I'll keep yall posted.
