#3395697 Almost Done With Accutane!

Posted by Yinyangfooey on 19 November 2013 - 05:20 AM

So I'm on my last (6th technically) month! My skin is 95% clear (With some odd scarring near my jawline) and I hardly even get pimples anymore. 

 

I had to stop for 3 weeks after my 1st month due to blood test problems but since that time I've been on it for 5 months continuously.

 

Also, I missed one day (permanently) because I accidentally crushed the pill when I was trying to get it out of the package...is that ok?

 

I've heard horror stories about post accutane breakouts. What should I do to prevent this? I've gone through 6 months of chapped lips for this...the acne better not come back. My last blood test is a week from now.

 

Just for reference, my weight is around 130 lbs and I've been taking 40mg a day. I've also tried to make an effort to moisturizing my face every morning from month 2 onward (I hate lotion it makes my skin feel really oily).

 

(bolded because that's the super important stuff)
