No, I just got pills for 90 days so far.. ACtually i do not know exactly if I should raise my daily mg?? My next appointment is at 28 january, I think i'm calling the derm tomorrow.. He hasn't even told me anything about blood test?? I thought it was needed after the 1st month?? Strange..

 

But I'm on 4-5 months he said, soo.... april come fast!! biggrin.png Summer 2014 is going to be amaaaaazing smile.png

 

Awesome we will finish the same time!! Summer is going to be AMAZING!! I actually was thinking about that the other day haha BUT that's really strange that he was like "Here's 90 days worth, see ya later." I think you're supposed to get a blood test every month? Idk tho, my first derm app is Monday unsure.png I half hope we ups my dose so that it just clears sooner, but at the same time I hope he doesn't because I don't want a BAD IB and for my symptoms to get worse because right now they are for sure livable. We will see what he has to say! Keep the positive thoughts up and let me know what your derm says when you call!hifive.gif

 

Yeah, same time is pretty cool - and we can follow each other throughout the journey ;) Indeed, summer 2014 is going to be a dream.. really.. 

 

I just found out that my derm has phone time mon-thur, so I'm wating for monday to phone him.. Good luck with your app! :) Let me know how it went. 

 

Thinking positive is the best, so keep ding it! Don't let anything let you down, and NOT acne! Smile! Clear skin will be there in just a moment! :)

 

Good evening

Day 19

 

Godd afternoon everyone, sorry because i haven't been updating the blog for a while, I have just been very busy with school, work etc.

 

Side effects has really kicked in. My face has become very dry, but it's alright - if just I remember to mistourize every morning and afternoon. My lips has also become very dry.. But lip balm every morning/night, then it's okay, and of course a lip balm in my pocket always :D My eyes has become dry as well, but with eye drops, it's alright. My acne hasn't improved so far, but hasn't got worse, it's like the same. I think all these side effects are worth it for a beautiful skin in the end, so I'm crossing fingers for accutane to work. Accutane hasn't really affected my mood so far, which is very good, just looking forward till the end!!!!

 

Sorry for the short update, but my time is very limited, but I guess a small update is better than nothing..

 

Hope that you all had had a very nice weekend, and happy 1st december :)

Day 24

 

Skin still very dry, and since it's a very stormy weather at the moment, my skin is becoming even more dry, so I REALLY need to remember to moisturize before going out.. My eyes have become very dry as well, and I have started using eye drops more often than before (And I really need to carry eye drops all the time).. To be in school with dry eyes, and no eye drops is HORRIBLE, really :D It's so painful.. My nose has become more dry, and the good thing (very good thing) is that ALL of my blackheads are on their way out!!! When I looked at myself in the morning I could see each of my blackheads! No big breakouts recently, still got some big pimplets on my cheeks, but it's alright I guess.. Hopefully everything turns to be good and positive now, and no more acne!

 

I hope that everyone is doing well, and you're happy (EVEN WITH ACNE!!).. Acne should not affect your mood! Have a very nice weekend :)

Month 1

 

First month passed!! Wehhh.. I talked with my derm yesterday and I'm not going to increase in mg/day, and not going to have blood tests (I thought it was strange?).. He said it was like unnecessary. My next appointment is on january 30, where I will be having blood test, and probably adjust my mg/day. The 1st month hasn't been that bad as I thought.. No actual IB's, and will hopefully not come.. My face hasn't really improved, but has stayed the same I guess, but hopefully i will see improvements soon! Hopefully! Almost every blackhead on my nose has disappeared, which is great! I'm not getting pimplets as before on my chin, but still have a lot red marks though, but I guess they are improving by fading. Still getting lots of pimplets on my cheeks, It's hard no to pop them before any activity, and it's just hard to suffer from acne in general........ I really hope that accutane will clear up my skin!!

 

I hope that everyone of you are having a nice time! Merry Christmas :)

Day 44

 

Haven't got any big pimplets in the past on my chin, which is great! and it looks like my red marks is fading! Actually my right cheek is getting a lot better! Haven't got any pimplets!! only a little bit on my jawline, but hasn't affected me that much!! :) And btw, my right cheek is felling very soft! it's amazing, no bumps at all.. But on my left cheek im still getting medium/big pimplets leaving red marks, I try to avoid popping, and im doing good I guess.. Hopefully I wont get anymore pimplets on my left cheek as well as I'm not getting on my right cheek!! My forehead is like what it always has been, a bit pimplets but not anything at all compared to my face.. I might upload a few pictures the next days, so you can see my actual face and situation right now..

 

I hope that everyone have had a nice christmas with a lot of presents and love! My biggest wish for christmas was a clear skin, so I reaaaaally hope that my wish will come true! :)

 

hugs :)))

DAY 50 WUHUUUUU

 

Overall my face has started to improve I guess! Im not getting as much pimplets as before! Chin is staying the same, no new pimplets, and red marks are fading slowly!! Cheeks have improved a lot, cause I'm not getting so much pimplets anymore, which is great! Aaaand red marks are still fading! Forehead is still the same, getting pimplets sometimes, but not worse... Now I'm getting pimplets places where I haven't got before, anyone who has experienced this?? I have recently got 4-5 around my right temple (Is this the word??),,,, Appointment with my derm at January 30, which is getting close!! :)

 

I wish everyone a happy new year! :)

DAY 54

 

Bad news.. As i thought my face just was going to improve, my thoughts were wrong. I have got a IB, and I'm breaking out a lot, it's so terrible. I hate looking at myself in the mirror, and I really want to look at myself and be happy, but it's so hard with this acne.. Im trying to hold my head up, probably gonna stay at home from school tomorrow.. Here are some pictures of me taken 5 mins ago, literally.. Looks so horrible :(

I'm trying to hold my head up as much as possible even though it's very hard.. Thank you for your support :) I'm almost at my 2nd month too, still at 40 mg per day, but having a derm appointment on january 30, so maybe he's upping my dosage..

 

I stayed home from school today, unfortunately..

Luckily we are getting far enough in treatment that it's closer to the end! Keep your head up, it will be worth it! I hope eusa_pray.gif

Thanks so much for your reply, kenzie.. Hehe, I did also thought that I wouldn't get an IB, but yeah.. I was wrong, just like you.. My IB is though clearing up at the moment.. Still looks bads, because of the red marks and stuff, but it's a lot better than before. Ohh... My reg doctor actually told me to ALWAYS leave the pimplets alone.. Dunno if my derm will pop some of them though.. Having an appointment on January 30, looking forward to it! We are almost halfway there!! I really hope that accutane will clear both of us up!

Day 62 (Month 2!)

 

Weehhh 2 months have passed! I have not got any pimplets recently after my IB, my face is improving but still bad after the IB! I guess my red marks have faded on my cheeks, cause I'm not really getting as much pimplets as earlier.. It's so great!!! :) I'm so happy at the moment, and I do really hope for that my face only is going to improve from now on! Would be so awesome for me, really.. Everything is just great at the moment, and I can hardly even think about my skin (which is great), cause I'm so busy with school, my girlfriend, work etc.. Aaaaannnd it has just started snowing today!! weeehhh snowballs :D

 

Hope that everyone is having a good time, hugs :)

I am 17 too. I am on day 42 of Claravis 40 mg daily.  My skin looks worse than ever.  My lips are dry, but not horrible.  Have a dance on Friday, so I hope that it looks a little better by then.  My skin has never looked better while on this, only worse.  I hope that it's working and I am not going to be a case where it doesn't work.

Trust me.. At that time my face was also very bad-looking, and it was definetely the worst part going through... Ohh.. I hope that your acne will improve and heal, but don't let it affect you from having a nice day anyway, please :)

 

DAY 79 (2½ months)

 

So today I was at my regular doc for a blood test, and afterwards I was at my derm. He has upped my dosage, so I'm now supposed to take 80 mg per day, until the start of April (2 months). I really hope that I wont get an IB, as my dosage has been upped, I cross my fingers! I haven't got any annoying pimplets recently, but my face is still healing from my IB, and I have got spots just beside where my big pimplets were. I really just hope to be clear of acne, red marks and scars at the end of the accutane journey. I was at the pharmacy and have got pills for 1 month so far :) On sunday and monday I was very sad and felt really depressed. But since that time it has only got better, and I'm trying to be as happy as possible even though having acne.

 

Hope that everyone have a nice day :)
