Day 60, Month 3 starts today.

Starting Month 3, Time is going by pretty slow, probably because I am not clear yet. I am still breaking out alot, both cheeks are full of red marks. My skin does not look good at all, but it is definitely better from what I started out with. My entire face is also beat red, it looks like I am wearing red foundation, its a total different color from my neck. I had my doctors appointment today, she is keeping me on 60mgs this month and said next month I will move up to 80. She told me to

Day 55, jinxed myself

Im breaking out so bad right now its not even cool. My whole right side is under attack. What is going on, shouldn't it be working by now? My left side is clear except for three small white heads and a million red marks but my right side just keeps breaking out.

Started crying for absolutely no reason tears just started streaming down my face, became very anti social, locked myself in my room for 3 hours slept, woke up and was fine. Today I am fine again. breaking out still its getting worse, probably because my dose went up. I am now on 60 mg. I just am praying its gone by the time I get back to college which which be at the beginning of month three I cant stop picking!! ug

Month 2

Hey. My blood work came back fine and my dosage has been moved up from 40mg to 60mg, had to switch from amnesteem to claravis in order to get the 60mg. It cost $144 for this months prescription, insurance covered about $550 of it. Some expensive shit we are dealing with here eh? I have an infection in my eye, don't know what its caused from. But it hurts! Nervous to go up in dosage because my side effects are already pretty bad. Regretting all those drugs I took in college right about now.

Day 27

Heyy I took my second blood test today to start month 2.. which I will be starting on Friday My face is still breaking out, got some pimples on both cheeks now, I am getting my period within the next 3 days so maybe thats the source of why things were going good and now they are bad again.

Day 20 cysts?

I have something important to update! For the first time in my life I have cysts?! My two cheeks are not symmetrical when I look in the mirror my entire jaw line and cheek line pushes out on my right side of my face because it is filled with cysts. SO WEIRD. The majority of my face is clear, expect for 5 Pea sized cysts under my skin that are killing me and a couple of small bumps on the lower half of my face. My whole right side of my face feels swollen when I touch it. I also find m

Day 14

Hi everyone. Okay so lets see, its week two and my lips are on fire, as well as the areas around my lips, I left the house without my aquafor today and was in massive pain. Since aquafor isn't that cheap I bought a huge tube of vaseline and leave it in my bathroom and smother it on my lips when I leave the shower. It's feels amazing. My skin is also beat red. My forehead is completely clear, I still have about 8 active white heads around my chin and lower cheek area, and thats it. M

Day 7

I decided I am going to blog every week from now on, because it's hard to read daily blogs of a treatment that lasts for 6 months. Week 1!! -Hands are dry, feel funny. -Skin isn't as oily. Some dry patches around my chin and in nose creases. -Lips still aren't that dry, but I apply chap-stick every hour anyway. - Am not freaking out so much about washing my face every 5 hours - Pimples are still there, no new ones forming. The pimples I have are only distinct pimples, instead of the

Day 1! F/110lbs/40mg Amnesteem (Accutane) daily

Hii! Just took my first pill, I got amnesteen, it cost $110 dollars after my insurance, apparently its $799 without insurance! I included almonds and olive oil in my lunch to help dissolve the medicine. Well obviously there's no side effects yet, I'm just drinking alot of water and plan on drinking at least 8 glasses a day. I stacked up on neosporin lip balm (night and day), the day one contains 20 spf and the night locks in moisture while you sleep. I'll let you know if it works

Trying to start my accutane

Hi Everyone. I am new to this website. I have been dealing with acne since I am 13, I am now 20 and it worse than ever. I have small pimples on my forehead and chin. My cheeks is where I have it the worst and its all red and irritated and hasn't been clear in years. I have an italian/irish skin tone, somewhere in between freckles and a tanned skin, and when you look at my face all you see is red and acne. I hardly leave my house because I am so embarrassed and don't want to see anyone. It
