Last Resort! 20Mg/female/uk

Hiya, thanks for commenting! Yeah I find being positive can have a bit of a toll, but it's even worse being really down about it. Least with accutane you feel like there's an end goal which keeps you going! :D

Day 48

Not much to report on really. It's weird, every day it changes, sometimes I wake up and I'm like 'this is ok, I can deal' & other days like this morning I'm just like where's the paper bag. I keep into perspective my initial break out though & as long as it doesn't revert back to that, I'll be OK. Spots wise I still have quite a few scattered around my cheeks & my forehead has broken out badly again.....but it's all small ones so let's hope they go away soon. : )

Hey, we're almost on the same day and I started at 20mg as well for the first 30 days. I was surprised at how much of a difference it made in my skin at such a low dose even though I still have a long way to go. I've been on 40mg since the second month started and I'm making pretty steady progress. I totally agree that being on accutane makes it so much easier to be positive about the whole thing. Good luck, hopefully it's smooth sailing from here on out.

Yup keeping positive is the key thing! Although I feel a bit hypocritical as I'm not feeling it today. :/ had my dermatologist appointment (it was earlier than 4 weeks as only other app I could get would mean a big chance of not having enough pills) & we've agreed I won't go back until 8 weeks this time. My skin is being a bugger to be honest! Just bad jawline spots again, forehead is crazy bad and due to my hyperpigmentation it just looks like my entire skin is covered. Not good! Going to keep fingers crossed it starts to sort itself out again, I was half expecting it so least it wasn't too out of the blue.

Still kept on 30mg as he said again today he won't put me on anything higher for my weight. Hoping this will be enough as like said before, seems a lot lower than most people here (& often people who are smaller than me) but ill trust him. ;p oh & it's day 52 I think!

Day 70

Still getting occasional break outs but main problem now is my pretty awful pigmentation all over my cheeks :/ but hey, would rather marks than actives!! I do feel a bit 'congested' at the mo and very much aware of some bumps under the skin but hoping these wont escalate. Have about four actives at the mo, one particularly awful one, but other than that best it's been so far during accutane!

Side effects I seem very lucky (although I am on a low dose) but just the super dry lips and dry nose etc.

Hope I haven't jinxed myself too bad! Hope everyone's journeys going well x
