Hi Marie, its been awhile since I posted. I am glad that you are doing so well. Sad to hear that they want you to do a few more months, but they probably want to make sure its totally gone. Do you know what your total amount is. My son is on 40 mg a day and is  4 1/2 months along. Things are finally looking better. It has been two weeks now since things have looked good. I am so happy. Im sure you remember days of me going up and down. He cant wait until hes off the meds also, but I wonder with him being on only 40 mg that he will have to take it much longer than you did. So I guess we will see. Keep posting and keeping us updated of your progress.

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been MIA. I've been working at a summer camp for three months so I haven't been on in a while. I did a total of 7 months, one month at 40 mg daily and six months at 80 mg daily. I am completely back to normal now (it didn't take very long). My lips aren't dry, my skin isn't dry. Every once in a while I will have a slight back ache like when I was on the medicine, but not very often. Even my red marks are fading. :) I do have a bit of indentions on my cheeks, but it's a million times better than my acne. I've had maybe three tiny pimples since stopping Accutane, and I'm not oily at all. I would do it all again in a second. :D

Have you been using anything on your skin to prevent the acne from returning? 

Thanks :)

Nope, I haven't even been to my derm since finishing (although I think I was supposed to. Oops). On the little bitty pimples I do get, I'll put some salicylic acid (just the clean and clear brand) on them. I've figured out they're hormonal though, because I mainly get them during that time of the month. :/ other than that, I just wash, moisturize, and sunscreen. :)

Hey y'all! Long time no talk tongue.png Anyways, I thought you might like an update. I haven't been on here in months because my skin looks great! I am so thankful I went on Accutane. As a recap, I was on Accutane 40 mg for one month, and then 80 mg for 6ish months (I didn't really take any of the last month. Oops). That is, if I remember correctly. You can read over my blog if you want to know all the info. I removed a lot of the pictures to save space, so here's a reminder of what it looked like a year ago.

And this is now! Only moisturizer on my skin biggrin.png sorry the picture isn't the greatest quality. My webcam isn't very good. Oh well!

Thanks! :) I do have some indentations on my cheeks, but they aren't that noticeable. I would say I would post a better quality pic so y'all can see, but realistically, it's not going to happen because I'm lazy. haha. But yeah! I don't worry about my skin at all anymore :D
