Start: 11/27/2012
Areas: Cheeks, neck, back, chest and shoulders
Dose: 40mg at Dinner
Info: 150 pounds, 6 foot, Male, 19
Reason: Nothing else works.....
End: 4-6 months

...and no, I didn't sit here and type 1 to 150, I wrote a program to do it for me.

Day 1: No changes
Day 2: No changes... very minor headaches
Day 3: No changes... very minor headaches
Day 4: No changes... still have the headaches but it's not bad at all, just annoying at the least
Day 5: 3 or 4 new pimples and headaches went away for the most part
Day 6: No more headaches, lips are getting chapt
Day 7: Nothing really, initial breakout might be kicking in
Day 8: Random new pimples on my face
Day 9: Random new pimples on my face
Day 10: Lips are chapt and skin is drying out a bit
Day 11: New pimples, lots on my chin, getting some on both cheeks
Day 12: New pimples, lots on my chin, getting some on both cheeks
Day 13-18: My skin is not oily anymore, still getting some pimples and still have chapt lips
Day 19-23: Lower back pain when leaning over and when I first go to lay down and the tip of my top left eye lid is swollen and red, mhm.....
Day 24-32: Lower back pain isn't as bad, face isn't as dry but my lips are, still getting pimples, cyst on each eye lid, body acne is a lot better, still red marks though.
Day 33-41: Getting eye styes now and then, not as many new pimples, looks like the red spots are fading slightly, back pain is not as bad
Day 42-81: Can't even remember the last time I had a pimple on my face, same side effects as before, dry lips and lower back pain.
Day 82-190: Nothing really to document, maybe a couple pimples in between but nothing major. Finally done, see last post on page 2.

i think youll be better off coming back weekly or biweekly, and forgetting about it. scratching the days off like that will only frustrate you when things rollercoaster up and down

Yep. I'm using Cerve (I think) Day Formula and Nite formula.

I'm just using regular chapstick but it's not working. I'll check that Aqua thing out.

My left eye lid is getting puffy. The tip is red and hurts to touch around the end. If you look at me straight on, you can see that eye lid sits lower then the other one, sweet.


Anyone else get this? Solution???

It sounds like it could be a stye, which I've read can be a side affect. I have never had one though, so I'm not sure how to treat it.

Ok so, that cyst went away on my eye lid, but now I got ANOTHER one on my bottom eye lid. Sucks, these hurt like hell when you blink.

Updated the first post

Gotta admit, my skin looks so much better!!! I wish I would of went on it this earlier instead of fighting acne for like 2 years. Now I have so many scars :(

I only have 1 active pimple on my face, like 1 or 3 on my back too. The red marks are fading super fast on my back, chest and face are fading really slowly compared to my back.

Sunday will be two months. Few pimples come and go.

 

I have this one huge cyst on my palm on my hand. It hurts like hell. Like WTF, a cyst on my hand? Really? It's been there 3 days already, it's all black and blue around it. I can feel it like pumping lol, I'm going to need do the compresses on this. Hopefully that works.

Sorry about your cyst. I haven't gotten any in weird places since starting. I got a pimple on my stomach and on my lower arm right before starting...so strange...

Yeah...that's not good at all. Definitely call your doctor. Somewhat unrelated, but last summer I had what I thought was an infected ant bite. It turned out it was a brown recluse (poisonous spider) bite, and I was hospitalized for it. I wasn't going to go to the doctor, but I'm so glad I did. So go to the doc!
