Hey blah!


Your course sounds a lot like how mine went around that period, besides the improving part in the beginning haha. But around day 20 or so my acne was the worst it's been my entire life too, just hang in there!! I'm about to end month 3 and my face has improved greatly! I still have a lot of redness and some red marks from pre-existing acne since skin heals slower on this med, but it's part of the process.


If your acne starts flaring I would ask your derm about prednisone. It helped calm that nasty breakout I got big time in as little as a few days.


Best of luck!

I can't wait either! smile.png


Day 71


More side effects are definitely starting to show up, could be from the increased dosage but i'm gonna be a warrior and not ask to come down. I want this course to be as quick as possible. But as far as the new side effects I'm definitely experiencing lower back pain and I get random sharp pain in my elbow joints mainly. I've started taking fish oil and joint juice that will hopefully help that out!


Also wondering, is it true accutane works from the top down? It seems like it's working well on my face so far, but my neck and the little bit I have on my mid-chest hasn't improved. Just a random thought

Good luck with your course MJ! I just finished two months and I think things are gonna be improving here on out. Just try not to stress about your skin every day like I did, and think about the end result of how good your skin's gonna look. If things get worse before they get better, it's accutane pushing out everything so it's a good sign!!


Time flies on this medication, best of luck

Day 55


So I don't wanna jinx myself, but things are really starting to improve!! That dark redness I was talking about is really starting to go down, and I actually use that sulfur topical as coverup during the day. I use very little as I don't want it to be noticeable, and I heard people can tell from what I read online, but honestly I barely can unless I'm staring directly at it. Honestly, I don't care if people can tell at this point haha, it looks better than redness. And, being my stubborn self, I picked a pimple that ended up becoming very red so I'll have to apply it on that sad.png... my fault.


As far as acne, I'm still getting new pimples forming but they seem to be drying up and going away a lot quicker than they used to. Neck is clearing up slowly, hopefully things are gonna be only improving from here on out!


I'm still worried about my case of being without accutane for about 5 or so days though, anyone think it'll be a problem? Like... since I'm taking two 30mg pills a day, should I maybe take 1 a day and then 2 the next when getting closer to the date, to try and have some accutane in my system until the refill?


I'll add pictures soon, thanks!
