Fellow accutane users: Suggestions needed!

So I am a little low on the self confidence the last few days and am just sick and tired of my skin. I hate how it holds me back in some way, every single day. I have scars on both of my cheecks that only seem to be getting redder, and am so f***ing sick of it I'm currently on 20mg a day, and am thinking that next week I'm going to try and schedule and app. with my doctor to up the dosage to 40 mg. Do you think that will help? Or is sticking with the lower dose a better idea? I'm just a little

IMPORTANT QUESTION:

has any of you ladies using accutane or have used accutane, found that it messes with your monthly cycle? my doctor has not told me about this, and I can't seem to find much information about it on the web. I have missed my period two months in a row, but am absolutley not sexually active right now. thoughts needed!

I need your opinion here!

So I'm a little concerned if I should be staying away from certain foods or not... Last night for dinner I had granola and organic peanut butter, a plate of sweet potatoes (very high in Vitamin A) and brussel sprouts. I am not sure whether eating sweet potatoes is a good idea or not. Opinions needed!

So the accutane journey begins! Beginning of week 1!

So after alot of contemplating, discussing and researching I decided it was best for me to go on accutane! I went for my first blood test on Monday and just took my first 20 mg pill (Wednesday). To be honest, I am very excited that I have started the journey to clear skin. I take very good care of myself to begin with, exersize daily, eat very healthy and organic as well as drink ALOT of water! But I have pledged to myself that I am going to take even better care of myself while on accuta
