Hey guys - Long story short, I used to be a reg here and took accutane 40mg for around 5 months ... this was 7 years ago when I was around 22. My acne came back after a couple of years but was manageable .. last 6 months its gotten out of hand (still nowhere near as bad as how it was) but it still requires attention. Went to the derm and I've been put on 20mg again ... just took my first pill 20 minutes ago and stressing out really bad I've just started a new dream job and have already taken a few days off due to my bad skin. I also can't look at people in the eye and appear to be really shy etc when I'm actually quite the opposite when my skin is clear
The dreaded initial breakout will also come soon I guess, hopefully its not as bad as the first time. The derm put me on Cephalexin capsules 2x a day, she said itll help with the initial flare up?
Just wanted to start a thread to track my progress as I know it helped alot of people last time around. I'm almost 30 now, really need to get over this portion of my life...hoping the Tane does its job once again, even if i only get 4-5 years of clear skin again ;(
btw - before my first course, my acne (even though it was only on my face) ... was in the top 5 worse on the forum! Accutane pretty much saved my life back then, lets see if it pulls through again!
