So, that’s why I’m starting Accutane after much deliberation. I’m expecting everything to go smoothly because I’m on a relatively low dose and I’m fully prepared to combat dryness with my army of Cetaphil moisturizer, Acne.org jojoba oil, Vaseline, Kiehl’s crème de corps, and Burt’s Bees chapstick! My prescription is 10mg twice daily for three months. I’m 5’1” and 92 lbs so this is roughly 0.5mg/kg, the lowest recommended dosage. I’m going tomorrow to get my preliminary blood check and pregnancy test, and I’ll start treatment the next day.
I'll try to make this a weekly log with photos. Creeping on the accutane journals here was very helpful in making my decision, so I hope I'll be able to do the same for people considering a low dose accutane treatment.
