Reverse Accutane Log

19 August 2013 - 05:29 PM

Haha I wanted to do something a little different and to help me keep track of my skin post Accutane. I just finished a 5 month course, 40mg the first month and 80 the remaining four. Side effects wise my lips are soo dry, always flaking and peeling. My skin has also been very dry and flaky all over with an attractive red tint. Dry eyes of course.

I was so excited to get this medication finally and the last 5 months its been like a security blanket, and now I'm so worried about relapsing:/ my skin slowwwwly got better and even now it still feels a bit "active". I'm supposed to start a retinol maintenance thing within a week or so. I think I'll continue the BCP also.

I look my last pill at lunch today!

Really Red Eyes On Accutane?

25 June 2013 - 07:04 PM

I'm wondering if anyone else had dealt with really bloodshot and dry eyes on Accutane? I'm on 80mgs and starting month 4 and man my eyes drive me crazy! I try to not use the eye drops too much but they get soo red. I look so awful and I feel like this is just a trade off and just as embarrassing as acne:/

Ipledge Question

05 March 2013 - 09:47 PM

So I went to my derm, signed all the stuff, got my booklet. My letter with my user name and password just came in the mail but is not letting me log on? Do I have to wait for my second appointment and get something else? Do I have to wait to get my second negative pregnancy test then take the quiz? I'm so confused. If anyone has been throught the process help! I'd hate to screw this up..

Question About Spiro Dosage

12 January 2013 - 09:57 AM

I just started back on 100MG a day after taking a break for a couple months. I know my androgens are still high because my oil and acne came back almost immediately and was way worse than I remember.
My question is should I take the full 100MG at once or 50 twice a day?
