Accutane Video Journey

88 posts in this topic

Problem I'm having: One day I get very dry skin and extremely chapped lips and the next day my lips are fine and my skin doesn't look dry. Is there something wrong? Has anyone else noticed this before? Something I'm going to ask my dermatologist next time I'm there. :/

AZ is awesome and ready for you!! My face is getting better... I feel like. Still an uphill battle right now but I'm regaining more and more confidence each day so that's good. For some reason I don't really get dry skin or lips on accutane and my dermatologoist said that the medicine is still working I am just one of the lucky ones that don't really get peeling skin and extremely dry lips, I thought that was really cool. About to start month three! I think you and I are at about the same point on our courses so once you move out here we should just about be done on accutane smile.png Can't wait to finish

Posting the videos became too much of a hassle, and I don't think many people watched them. I will try and post one at the end of my course. I will post pictures from now on. Here are pictures from a month before accutane, week 1 of accutane, and now week 8 of accutane. Big improvement? smile.png I just got another 30 day supply of accutane, and I won't post another picture until I finish week 12! Hopefully things continue to improve.

Before accutane-

Week 1-

Week 8-

I know I said I wouldn't post another picture until week 12, but here is a picture at week 11. Also, I forgot where or what lighting I took my week 8 picture in but I made sure to rememeber where I was in this picture so I can keep it consistent for the pictures to come in the following weeks. Improvements? smile.png

Why are you feeling miserable? Health issues or emotional?

I think your skin is looking great! If you want to speed up the process you can always ask for a topical to use as well. You'll more than likely want one once you complete your accutane trial (to maintain the clear skin).

I'm not sure... Just a lot of other stress going on in my life and this accutane process is going pretty slow. Much improved since I first started, huh? I am going to ask about 'tazorac cream' or something to help reduce redness next time I'm at my dermatologist

Went and saw my dermatologist today and had to have a few cysts injected. I got prescribed prednisone. Now I am on Prednisone and Accutane. Anyone know about taking prednisone? with accutane?
