Hello everyone, I am very excited to create my own log. I am 23, 180 pounds athletic physique male college student, yes Im still in college, about a year and half to go. I will try to make this summary as short as possible. I used to have horrible acne when I started highschool from football I blame it on. It totally destroyed who I was and I ended up pushing pretty much every single person out of my life. I really hated myself. It took everything there is too take and I have done pretty much every med spa treatment there is. My acne is no where comparable to what it was, It is mild now from the antibiotics but my redness and scarring can not heal when my skin is still breaking out. We all know once youve had acne that took over 8 year of my life away you want it completely dead and the memory gone. With how my face is I cant do that yet and I am tired of my skin sucking my life away. Yes I know we should not let it phase us but that is easier said then done. I finally started the 10mg today claravis and I will try to update as much as possible if anyone is interested. I am so scared yet excited at the same time, if this works I will be the happppiestttt perssoonnnn everrrrrrrrrr!!! Wish me luck if you want!!

I too am on 10mg daily, today is my third day. Has not experience any side effects nor decrease in oiliness yet.
But i had a breakout on the first day which i am not sure if it was cause by accutane or not.

I'm on day 10 of 10mg/day and think I'm starting to see a minor decrease in the oil (thank god!). My lips started to get dry a couple of days ago.

Little update, skin is drier since I started, haven't have any I.B yet and my skin is looking much clearer, the active acne I did have dried up pretty fast and face feels so much less oily. My derm did say this stuff works very quickly so I am feeling good.

hey just to update, my skin is looking pretty dam amazing right now, barely any oil on face and havent broken out really at all, its pretty amazing because my acne scars and red marks have faded considerably because of i guess my skin just not breaking out and less oil, feeling very good. Dry lips, sorta dry skin, thats it right now.

I have been told when I start a higher dose it could break you out, I will let everyone know how that goes and I will be posting pics at the end of my first month which is not that long away
