Hopefully I Can Ride This Train...accutane 24/m

29 posts in this topic

4800 mg down! The nose and lip dryness is probably the most annoying side effect. my biggest frustration is when is lather on the aquaphor at night, but in the morning it is all gone and i yawn resulting in the corner of my lips cracking. Dr. Dans balm along with blistex medix and some aquaphor works wonders, but still the cracked corners are annoying.

My face as a whole has cleared up drastically. I still have one or two individual zits, but nothing serious. My back isn't really clear yet, actually there are like 5 cysts on it right now, but it has become very smooth and i know if i just stick through this treatment things will work out.

only about one more month to go. Have been noticing some pain in my knees occasionally, as well as other joint soreness. Lips still dry. My back is not clear yet, and im noticing some blackheads on my chest.

But regardless of all that, my face is AMAZING! I finally feel like i can go out and do anything. I don't have acne on the back of my mind. I wash my face and moisturize and sleep! no dealing with spots and slathering on lotion after lotion. Even if my back doesn't clear up all the way, if my face stays as clear and not oily as it is now i would be soooo happy.

I can wait to see how all this turns out...Im keeping up the positive thoughts.

Hi there! I don't know how I haven't noticed your log before, but I started Accutane about a week before you and I think we'll finish around the same time too.

Congratulations on the amazing skin! I really really hope that the acne is gone for good for both of us :)

I checked out your log. Your skin looks amazing! Congrats.

Im super happy with my results, I almost wanna ask my doctor to let me continue with a low dose regiment to stop any acne/oily skin from coming back.

But nonetheless, although the side effects can be harsh at times, for most people with acne accutane is heaven sent. Im so glad I decided to take it.
