My cystic 6 year ordeal

Entries in this blog

 

6 weeks

Very dry lips, peeling but under control, with dr dans lip blam and Glytone lip nightime treatment. ONe small spot pimple under my jawline, but thats it. Very tired since the dosage went up to 60mg a day, hoping this passes. Hate not getting any sun though, am sooo pale!!!! lol but its worth it...I hate wearing shorts at the gym because I look like a ghost!!! Otherwise loving the results so far, going for my second blood test tomorrow, last one was perfect. Also I have had a glass of wine here and there with no problems. I just watch my intake, no drunken nights on the town though lol

5 weeks and still positive

Its been 5 weeks now on accutane, going great, my dr just changed my doseage to 60mg a day, im on day 2 of the new dosage. Only complaints I have still are just dry eyes and blurry vision at end of the day. Thirsty and dry nose as well. Had one pimple the other day, and a couple small spots on my chin but they look like NORMAL acne, not the huge cyctic ones in the past. They are drying out faster too. Skin not too bad, keeping up with my moisturizing and water, lips are really dry at end of day but its nothing I cant deal with, very minimal side effects still. So far I am very impressed still and wishing I did this sooner!!!! lol

still good

Almost 3 weeks into accutane, dry eyes and lips becoming a bit more drier. Sore shoulders, not sure if this is a joint issue. But my complexion looks good, the cystic pimples i had last week all dried up so fast, just some flakey skin by these but thsts it. Just drier than usual, no new pimples or anything. wow....amazing ...oh and ive been drinkning alot of water , taking primrose evening pills, thirsty ALOT! hope I dont get any bad side effects, I can deal with these. No signs of depression at all either. Very happy!!!

2 weeks into Accutane

I finally got to the dermatologist , 6 months wait, and I decided to give Accutane a try, all other options failed and i'm sick of he acne. Two weeks in I am started my IB, ive had a few cysteic pimples the past couple days but they seem to dry up quicker which is positive. Extremely dry, especially my eyes and nose. I got a cold yesterday which is not gonna help my dry skin. I started moisturizing before I even started the 40 mg a day, so I am seemingly onto of it, not much peeling. Eye sight a bit off, and concentration at work a little off. NO depression though which I was really worried about. So so far, so good.
