- both the breakouts from day 21/22 has gotten bigger, and are more visible....ughhh. and this is unusual for accutane, it usually goes down faster.
- my nose and the skin below my lower lips are grainier, does not feel smooth at all, the whole appearance of my face is worse. If at all, this is one of phases, then i hope to get thru' this as fast as possible.
- side effects are mild as usual, this includes, sore joints, dryness, dry nose bleeds while i clean-up my nose, dry and flaky lips.
- it is said that the accutane works from top to bottom in the human anatomy, in other words, a person would have clear skin from head to toe, so people with scalp acne would see almost immediate results as compared to people with body acne. I think this might be true, i didnt quite believe this when i first read this somewhere, my scalp acne is completely gone now, no acne on my scalp at all....while i am still fighting my acne on my face and i have a couple of spots as we speak.
and one more frustration i would like to express.......claravis comes with a very shitty packaging....i can never get the pill out easily....esp, the new box that i opened is a nightmare.....its kinda funny how the pharmaceutical can invent a magic drug that can cure acne, but the same drug comes in a shitty package.,...its like watching a great movie, but the video quality is really bad.....lol.....all the antibiotics that i took before accutane was dispensed in these nice orange cylinder like boxes.....why cant the pharmacy do the same with accutane??....
