I went to my derm this morning and then got my blood drawn. As long as my bloodwork comes back clear they will be raising my dosage from 40 mg to 60 mg I think. That would add up about right considering I'm 140 pounds or 63.5 kg. She also gave me a prescription for an antibiotic to help smooth things along. My skin is smoother but I'm still getting a lot of cysts. Anyways, this should help. I usually respond well to antibiotics for my acne but as soon as I stop them it comes back.. We shall see! I also mentioned my scaly cheeks, but she just said keep moisturizing... not very helpful there...
As for side affects, I haven't had any headaches for about a week now. Thank goodness! They were very mild, but annoying. I haven't been super dry yet, although it varies by the day (and the weather). I still have lower back aches, but I mainly notice it when I first lay down. My hair is getting much drier. I went 4 days without washing it last week.
I will be posting pictures tomorrow, and will let y'all know what antibiotic I'm on as well as what dose I'm on. Have a wonderful day everyone!
