That sucks, I got a bit nervous when my first month just ended but luckily my appointment was 2 days before my last pill. I'm on day 36 and things haven't improved greatly but I see some improvements but my chest is still my concern.

The first month is always the hardest so that's awesome that you're already past it now

I'm on day 66 and my skin has overall improved greatly compared to day 1. I'm currently on 80mg for month 3 and worked my way up from 40mg to 60mg to now 80mg. I hope at the end of this course, my skin will be better. My concern is my chest scars which I hope the Accutane will at least help fade. Other than that I've had a minor breakout each time I move up a dosage such a new pimple on my face which I just had and it left a small mark, and random back and shoulder acne but I'm alright with that since I can cover it with a shirt or sweater. As for school, Im already in for a month and I feel like my skin is different than from the first day of school which is good. Gym class is alright since I have weight training and I change in the bathroom since its more private cuz I'm still uncomfortable with my chest acne and acne scars. Also when I sweat, I feel like its not ruining my skin as before and actually helping my overall health. My dermatologist also told me to eat a fatty meal with each pill so it can be more absorbed. Just an update cuz I haven't updated in awhile.

Well as of today (Day 113) I still hate my skin. I know some people have it a lot worse, but I'm so tired of getting these huge underground spots. I actually miss just getting plain old white heads. Here's some pictures from today of my stupid skin. Also my bathroom light makes everything yellow so sorry for the yellowness.

Day 133 of 40Mg daily. Here's a new picture update of my skin. I'm definitely breaking out a lot less and getting overall less acne, now I just need to wait for all the old spots to heal and lose their redness.

Day 139: I've only gotten one pimple on my face in the past 2 weeks. Only my neck, jawline and back are still breaking out but I have a feeling that will go away soon too. Overall I've had almost zero side effects, except for dry lips of course. It's really been nice waking up in the morning and seeing no new actives on my face.

I know I haven't posted up an update in awhile but Im in month 4 on day 5 and my skin looks way better than day one of accutane. I mean my face is getting clearer about very couple days. Although I have really dry lips, it's all good. I still have chest acne scars that are slowly fading. This I'd my second month on 80mg so at first it was 40mg , then month 2 was 60mg , then month 3 was 80mg, and now I'm in month 4 day 5 of 80mg. The dermatoligist said I'm almost halfway done which is great. So I'm guesinngt I'll be done with accurane in about 3 months. Hope your doing better than day one of accurate

So I got my prescription renewed and in total this will be an 8 month Accutane course for me. Today is day 164 and I have 76 days left of Accutane. I haven't gotten any significant acne in around 3 weeks now and my skin is healing everyday. I'm very confident that after this 8 month course I will hopefully never have to deal with acne ever again. As far as side effects go, I still have the usual dry lips. I love you Accutane surprised.gif

Im on day 6 of month 5 of my accutane journey. I am overall happy with my progress . I don't feel as self conscious about my acne on my face. Overall my face acne is nearly gone except for some hyperpigmentations and red/pink spots. My chest has no little active acne but lots of scarring which I'm hoping my dermatologist will help fix after my course of accutane. I just need a little bit more of accutane to make me 100% satisfied but so far I'm feeling better about myself. I too still havevery dry lips. Although I don't know how much longer I'll take accutane.

Accutane works guys, or at least it does for me. I've only gotten 3 pimples in the span of 1-2 months and only one of those were white heads. I still have approximately 45 days left of Accutane. It's funny how this morning I noticed this tiny white head on my chin and It felt so weird seeing a white head on my face since It's been so long since I have seen one. I really want to post another picture update soon but I'm just really busy and also lazy, but I promise I will post another picture update within the next 45 days.

I'm almost done with month 5 with a few pills to go.I'm happy with no active acne on my face but I have pimple cyst that has shrunken in between my eyebrows which is wondefull. I have lots of scarring on my chest which is my concern, lots of dark spots and some hypertrophic scars. Dark spots on my back and shoulders but those eventually go away. My main concern is my chest scarring, I believe I'm a little over half way done with accutane so I'll see how it goes. happy and feel way better compared to day 1

Well i took my very last Accutane pill on Thursday February 19th. I can't believe it's been over 8 months since I took my first pill. Just to recap I've been taking one 40mg Accutane pill everyday after eating dinner for 8 months (since June 20th). Between month 6 and now I've had maybe 3 pimples that were pretty small and didn't last very long. I plan on posting a picture update of my skin on Monday. Now that I'm off Accutane and not breaking out anymore my skin can finally heal all of the old spots and scars because from what I've read your skin doesn't heal as fast when you're on Accutane. It stills amazes me how just taking this small magical pill once a day got rid of my acne that I thought I would be dealing with for a significant portion of my life. Please give Accutane time to work though guys, especially if you were on a lesser dose like me. I didn't see results until month 5 and I only really stopped getting acne around half way through month 6.

Well as of today it's been 41 days since I've taken my last Accutane pill. Since my last update I've pretty much gotten zero acne except for maybe 2-3 tiny white heads that disappeared within 24 hours.  I didn't post any pictures of my back this time because I've been getting zero acne on my back but I still want it to heal more so that when I post my next picture update in a month, you can see the progression even better. Here's the picture of my skin that I took this morning.
