Hey! Fellow NHS Roaccutane-er here too If things start getting worse, its a good sign, mine got way worse before it started improving but it does get better
For me the 1st week was very rough and a struggle to get through but it was worth it, just remember the end goal you are going for! I think I made the mistake of focusing too much on the side effects and initial breakout rather than the end goal
Anyway, good luck!
What made your first week so tough (just so I can prepare myself)? When did things start to eventually get better for you?
Thank you, it means a lot Good luck you Roaccutane-er (that name is genius )!!
I started getting facial flushing and that horrible sunburn feeling on my face mildly at first but it started getting more and more intense, it did leave after a little while though but then the initial breakout came which was horrific, I had acne literally everywhere on my face at the worst point. That faded too but was replaced by a painful dry scalp and headaches that wouldn't go away. One thing after another!
But it was definitely worth putting up with them, I'd say it was more like 11 days rather than a week. It was rough but then again 11 days isn't much to sacrifice in the grand scheme of things at all. My skin is looking better everyday now, I'm really happy that I stuck with it because I honestly considered giving up
