It seems like I have been waiting a lifetime to finally get my roaccutane. I got acne when I was 11 and since then I've tried everything - over the counter treatments like freederm, prescribed topical treatments e.g benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, erythomicin....
Now I have finally been prescribed roaccutane and I am really hoping it works.
I have been prescribed 20mg for the first 2 months, and then 40mg for the last two months - however my derm said if my body cannot handle the 40mg it will be bumped back down.
I suffer from 'sandpaper acne' as my derm described. I get the odd big spot here and there, but my forehead, cheeks, upper lip and chin (and a bit on my jaw and neck) there are hundreds of small red spots. I will try to upload a picture later on.
I have one question - my derm told me to take it with a big meal - so do i take this before, during or after my meal, sounds silly but i have no idea!
Well, here's hoping that I will be successful in my roaccutane journey and I don't suffer from too many bad side effects (I have my vaseline at the ready!). I hope you join my in my roaccutane journey
