Hey this is my first log which i will probably update every once in a while
So im 16 years old at the moment, had acne since i was probably 12 and it has recently (this year) gotten pretty bad and irritating, with the cystic type popping up. I have tried many antibiotics which didnt really solve the problem but maybe kept it at bay for a while. Heres my cheek from a few weeks ago for reference.
I have been on doxy for about a month now but i decided it wasnt working out well enough and jumped onto the last option.
Yesterday i decided to start taking Roaccutane. My planned dosage is 20mg twice daily but right now it is 20mg once daily. I took the first capsule about 24 hours after taking my last doxycycline tablet. I had read that there is a bad interaction between the two but thought a day would be long enough.
I feel as if i may have been wrong because today in the afternoon i began feeling strange. Distorted vision, slight forgetfulness, dizzyness. It felt kinda like i was high. Also maybe some back pain but that might just be paranoia.
Is this normal? Will it pass? Should i continue my dosage as normal or wait a few days/week and then continue?
My worst worry is for back/joint pain and i really dont want it to affect me later on.
