Ok guys hi! I am completely new here! i literally just made this account like a few minutes ago lol! Anyways first of all, my profile pic is not me and I am a MALE got it? Ok well, I started to go on Accutane when I was 14 years old because I had bad severe acne. sad.png To make a long story short, Accutane worked GREAT for me in the 6 month course. However, my acne started to comeback 5 months ago and here I am at my just finished first day of second round of accutane. My acne isn't that bad (mild-light moderate) but it's very persistant and so I wanted to get rid of it once and for all, hopefully this time it's gone for good... Anyways, my skin was acne free for 6 months but unfortunately my acne came back when those 6 months were done. sad.png My acne is MUCH better now than before I took accutane the first time but it's still uncontrollable and now I'm excited to go on my SECOND and hopefully last course. I am typing this fast so sorry if there's some mistakes. :/ Anyways to make a long story short, I am planning to update every 5 or 10 days so here we go! If you have any questions or comments, please let me know, thank you! Weight: 127 Height: 5'8 (I don't know if that's needed but here you go!)

 P.S., I did NOT get an IB the first time I went on accutane BUT, that's because I took prednisone at the same time to not get the ib.

Accutane/Amnesteem Round 2 (Second Course) 20mg TWICE A DAY 

 

DAY 1. I think I got a few more pimples but still not sure... As of now I have mild-light moderate acne. I have a feeling that my ib won't be too bad but I am prepared for the worst... :( I hope this is the begininng of something special... Also, slight dizzyness....

good luck with everything! I finished accutane in october after a long 8 months on the meds. I still breakout a bit- its actually mostly in the crevis of my nose- if I'm describing the place right. I struggle with rosacea- so my original reason for accutane was to get rid of my mild acne so i was able to treat my rosacea properly because t was such a struggle using topicals for acne- it just in turn made my rosacea flair! So yeah. .... anyways good luck!!! !

DAY 5: I have slightly more acne, so far, my IB has been pretty light. Yesterday I felt very angry for no reason, today, I feel a little sad... :( I definitely feel uglier right now because my skin is in between dry and oily and it just makes my features on my face look bad. :( My eyes look bigger, my skin color looks uneven, blah, I just don't like how I look right now. :( So far no improvement but, I know it'll get better eventually. :) The first time I took accutane I looked good by the third month. Hopefully the same thing happens this time. Ugh, some bad news is that I have to go back to school on Monday because my break's about to be over. :( I don't mind school that much but I just wish I could sleep for months until this is all over. :( Anyways, update you all in 5-10 days! :)

DAY 12: Ugh, I was about to wake up happy today saying I look much better but NOO, I get another stupid break out. :( Well around day 7 or 8, my skin started to look really good! Buy then 4-5 days later which is today, my skin decided to look worse again. :( I feel exactly like I did on day 5 today, I just hope this on and off IB goes away soon. Now realistically speaking this breakout isn't too terrible but it's the worst one I've had on this 2nd course of Accutane. Anyways, just like day 5 I look bad today, skins in between dry and oily, and my features look bad. Also, today I had my first nosebleed in my life, this is a symptom that did not occur on my first course of Accutane. :( As for the depression, I feel happy except for the days I look bad like today. I just hope I at least look a little better on Monday. :/ Well guys, update you all some other day, hopefully by next post my IB has ended. :)

DAY 13: I know I said I was gonna update you 5-10 days from yesterday but I am bored so I'll update you today. Today I have even MORE acne. Where I'm getting it the most is in my mouth/chin area and in my forehead. :( Luckily I've had long bangs since 6th grade so I get to cover all that shit in my forehead lol.  Anyways, I am not happy with this and hopefully my IB ends this week. I was just starting to get confident and then this bullshit happens. :( I think I am gonna start to use a little bit of makeup, I don't care if it's "gay", I am gonna use it to make me feel better about myself. Anyways, now for real, I'll update you all in 5-10 days.

Side Effects:

Dryer Skin

Dryer Lips

Dry Eyes (2nd worst side effect)

More ACNE IB (WORST SIDE EFFECT GRR)

DAY 19: Ok here's the deal:

Good News: -I think the IB is over, I am pretty sure that was the worst all of a sudden acne breakout I am going to get this 2nd course because it was just really too bad to be a normal breakout.

-A lot of marks are already starting to look better (fading away)

-My eyes feel less dry.

-New acne goes away fast

-No new nosebleeds although my nose is still kinda dry sometimes.

 

Ok now the bad news:

-Still getting acne although MUCH less than before, it still sucks though.

-Some days my face is really red and makes me look ugly as hell like today. :P (P.S., I've noticed I usually look really ugly on the weekends lol)

-Obviously I still have dry skin and lips, although there are days where it's kinda extreme.

-Some marks look more noticeable since my face is sometimes red as hell as I mentioned earlier.

 

So in conclusion, I am still waiting until the day I can finally say it's over, I can't wait until this is all over, but before then, I can't wait until I stop getting acne, that alone will be a huge step forward in this treatment. :) I also feel much better overall, but I know I can feel even better. Hope you all have a nice day if you're reading this and update you all in 5-10 days.

DAY 33: Alright, I'll get straight to it: SECOND MONTH DAY 3, DAY 33 OVERALL

 

OH WAIT, before I get into it, let me tell you that my dosage is different now, I AM NOW TAKING 30MG TWICE A DAY. (SAME HEIGHT SAME WEIGHT)

This is the max I'll have for the remainder of the course since my acne is not severe and also that's all my weight can handle.

 

 

Good News:

-The IB is definitely gone by now since like 3 weeks ago :)

 

-I am barely getting any acne, in fact, I don't think I'm getting ANY acne anymore! :)

 

-Some marks are fading, some have almost completely faded :)

 

-If do get acne (which I haven't in a few days) it goes away FAST (and it's small, USUALLY)

 

-No new nosebleeds

 

Ok, now for the BAD NEWS:

 

-Some days my face is really red and makes me look ugly as hell like, today. tongue.png (P.S., I've noticed I usually look really ugly on the weekends lol) (Same as last time lol)

 

-Obviously I still have dry skin and lips, although there are days where it's kinda extreme.

 

 

-Some marks look more noticeable since my face is sometimes red as hell as I mentioned earlier.

-BACK PAIN ARGH angry.png

-DRY EYES DANG angry.png 

-DRY NOSE  angry.png 

 

I think that about sums it up. I think the worst side effect for me is the red and dry face. :( Luckily I use a cream that makes me look better every morning but it doesn't always work well. :/ I really CAN'T wait until this crap is all over. Update you all whenever I feel like it or something really good or bad happens (hopefully not the latter). In conclusion, I feel better about myself than last time but I know I can LOOK and FEEL WAY BETTER THAN I DO NOW. Sigh, I guess  all I can do is wait and hope time goes fast. :/

DAY 48: Second month day 18, day 48 overall.

STILL 30MG 2ce a DAY

 

GOOD NEWS:

Less acne (when i do get acne it's a small amount and the postules are small and go away fast)

Some marks are fading, some have almost completely faded :) (Each time i update i have less marks)

I'm pretty sure the IB is FAR GONE BY NOW.

BEST NEWS: MY SKIN IS NOW LESS RED! I AM STARTING TO LOOK BETTER! :D I STILL HAVE ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT BUT OVERALL, MUCH BETTER! FINALLY! :)

 

BAD NEWS:

Obviously I still have dry skin and lips, although there are days where it's kinda extreme.

Even though my skin looks much better, without moisturizer, I look red and horrible. Luckily I put on moisturizer everyday.

-BACK PAIN ARGH

-DRY EYES DANG 

-DRY NOSE  :(

 

In conclusion, I am predicting a huge improvement by the end of the third month. I am now mid second month and I am finally starting to see results. Also, each time I get less and less acne. I can't wait til it's all over. I still gotta work in my confidence, but I'm doing a little better now! :) Update you all, when I update you all! :D

Day 55:

Unfortunately I don't really have good news. I'm still breaking out (with small pimples and not too many but I STILL AM D: ) and today I got a bunch of little pimples around my left eye... -_- Seriously? Why is it that every time I break out I break out in embarrassing places? Also I still got this week and another week of school left so yeah, I kinda do care about how I look right now :/. They're not too noticeable but they're still bothering me. Hopefully they go away soon. I think that the reason why I got them is because I've been putting on moisturizer around my eyes. Well apparently, you're not supposed to do that. Well, THAT would've been nice to know BEFORE I put it around my eyes! -_- SMH. Anyways, my skin is still having good days and bad days. And today was a bad day (uneven skin color and a breakout around my left EYE). Well, other than what I just wrote, the good news and bad news is still the same thing from last time. Update you all, when I update you all. :)
