Well today I was finally prescribed accutane! My dermatologist suggested accutane after all the antibiotics that I was on simply failed, not even leaving a dent in my acne. I debated if I should create a log or not but I decided to do it just so I don't have to go through the journey alone! Let me tell you a little bit about myself, I am a 16 year old male sophomore that has had moderate acne vulgaris since probably around 10-11 years old. It's not so much that I am embarrassed of acne, well I guess it is a lot of that, but I am just so tired of having to deal with it. I play varsity football and love being outdoors. I guess it is a plus that I started accutane in the winter with off season workouts and not during august when I would be outside for 3 hours every day xD. Also not having to deal with creams and all that shit anymore is so relieving, knowing accutane is all I have to do. I bought some Cetaphil moisturizer and face wash due to the fact that I heard they were very gentle on the skin. If you have any other recommendations please feel free to tell me! Oh and I got some chap stick too I will post some pictures in a little while I just wanted to post this real quick!Oh and I am on 40 mgs of accutane (I'm 6 foot 175lbs) but idk for how long I will be on it yet so yeah xD Also one last question, are the capsules supposed to be really light? It almost seems as if there is nothing in them lol! The actual brand name of mine is Clavaris or something like that. Also is there anything else I should know that the derm prob didnt tell me?
Havnnt noticed any really big changes. Well, none at all haha. No initial breakout or anything, yet. I will just have to wait and see!
