I just TODAY had my first blood test to start accutane and now it's the 30 day waiting period before starting. Thanks for the log, it really helps me to feel more prepared for what's ahead!
Good luck, hopefully we both have clear skin soon!
>I feel the same way your not alone. I had gone on accutane back in high school and have only had small breakouts until just the past 3 months. I've started getting cystic acne which was completely new to me. Boy does it make you feel like crap. I loved going outside and live right by a beach but now all I want to do is stY coupes up inside because I feel like my face looks do terrible. I had finally gone to the derm but of course I get the one who would rather put me on a hormone pill which had only double my skin issue. I finally changed derms but now am just in the wAiting process of getting my prescription of accutane. It feels like times going by even slower and I just want to get it started. I'm also very worried about getting an IB but with how my skin reacted to the first medicine, I guess I can just deal. I just don't want to look at myself it looks do terrible and cover up doesn't even helpnning!
Your skins already on the path to recovery so just stay positive! Looking at so many peoples results of accutanes definitely worth it. Let's just hope we're lucky and don't get the terrible breakout in the begi
How long did you have clear skin before you started breaking out again after Accutane?
Thank you for your support.
It's been about 4 years. I had finally gotten rid of all my discolorations in July and was completely comftorable with not wearing any makeup. After that is when i started breaking out again, I'm guessing from stress? I'm really not sure what triggered it but it just keeps getting worse. Before the first round of accutane I didn't really get any cystic but now that's what I'm dealing with. Have you seen much progress? I feel like 6 months will take forever and I am still just waiting on getting the prescription, I had the first pregnancy test a month ago.
Well, 4 years is quite a long time so that's good. But I can understand how terrible it must feel to have to go on Accutane again. I'm hoping that this permanently gets rid of my acne. I could manage a few zits here and there, but not what I have now.
In terms of progress, I thought I was seeing some but then it just recently got worse again. I suppose I'm breaking out less than I used to but the breakouts are just as severe. I have these bumps on my forehead that WILL NOT go away, and I've never experienced pimples lasting more than a week before. I'm not sure if this means they're cysts or what...
Yes, it can be a real bother to wait until you finally get the darn prescription in your hands. I hated having to jump through a bunch of hoops. Acne was completely ruining my life! Honestly the 6 months will go by fast though, I can't believe I'm already on my 3rd month.
