My last month!

Haven't been logging regularly, but it's more of a brief of my treatment. I have started my 5th and last month two days ago. I am so happy that I am almost there. My main problem was a chronic case of moderate severe acne since I can remember, maybe 13 and now I am 24. Over the last couple of years I have developed mild face acne, presumably from all the long term antibiotics that I have tried for my back (alas that didn't work) and I guess that has strengthened the bacteria and it bec

And the third month...

Today i finish my 2nd month on isosupra (isotrentinoin) 32 gm a day. Just got back from my dermatologist appointment and he prescribed me the third month supply. Three months to finish my 5 month course. My face is so much better, I can say it's clear and my doctor is impressed. My back (the main problem) is improving more slowly but improving nonetheless, but it's somewhat scarred and I should start dealing with that. It's weird because I'm less dry than a month ago, I just moisturiz

Coming close to two months on Isosupra

I'm well into my second month on Isosupra, an isotrentinoin but with lower dosage. I'm taking 32 gm (16x2). Now i'm more used to the dryness. No more fatigue or mybe I also got used to that. It becomes a life style. All the moisturizing and chap stick. I carry around my carmex lip balm religiously, I wouldn't move around without it. I use face cream once a day. Sometimes I use eye drops. My body is not too dry, I mean it's dry and I sometimes get rashes and red spots but it's fine. My

11th day on isotrentinoin 32 gm

So today is the 11th day.. I have been very sick... the past 10 days !! I only started getting better 2 days ago when doctor put me on antibiotics, anti histamine, ventoline.. seems i had brochospasm, acute bronchitis and this caused my dormant asthma to flare up, also susceptible seasonal allergy... This may have been totally unrelated to accutane though.. I still have a cough but i'm much better.. I have occasional mild headaches, my knee hurts abit when driving, and i'm lethargic,

The first four days: I didn't know what to expect, now I know

OK so the first four days on Isosupra Lidose ... were NOT easy... 32gm/day I felt tired, drowsy, sleepy and I could hardly concentrate at work ... energy levels down to minimum... I felt a bit down and out of it. I took it with lunch around 2-3pm .. I developed this cough and soar throat since day one, that feels like the start of a cold, except that it's not... It's new to me, so most probably it's a side effect. I hope it goes away soon I don't want to have it for the next 5 months. Tha

FIRST DAY... so many dreams

Hello. You can call me Amy. I'm too embarrassed to share my real name, and no one from my personal life knows I am here. I am 24. I have * moderate * persistent acne that is all over my face and back and butt. It won't go away with antibiotics. I do have an urge to pick it and squeeze the shit out of it which I can't control (makes me feel better but leaves scars, I know). Having bad and sick looking skin causes me lots of emotional pain and some times physical pain too. I have been a vic
