kevon's Blog > Day 114 - Journey Complete :)

Posted 13 May 2013

I came off the medication for a week due to my chest infection, but came back on once it cleared up to finish the course. I have my final appointment tomorrow to get my post-treatment check up. All in all, it's been pretty smooth sailing for me. I still don't know if the medicine was behind taking a long time to recover from my chest infection, but a...

kevon's Blog > Day 94 - Accutane - Chest Infection

Posted 23 April 2013

kevon's Blog > Day 32 Accutane Full Dose Time!

Posted 21 February 2013

So yesterday I started my full dose of 70mg. I spoke to my dermatologist about how I’ve had some great effects from the lower dose and mentioned the possibility of staying on the 40mg dose if it was working. He said he’d be inclined to stick to the plan, which I was expecting. He said it was good that I’m not getting too many side effect...
