day 85

just got done with my derm appt for 3rd month going onto 4th. he kept me on 80mg a day and said i might be extended till march 15th which is fine with me considering my 21st is april 15th. i asked him if i should be going higher dosage and he said the European way says its the same effect if i keep on a lower dosage for a longer period rather than higher dosage shorter period with worse side effects. i noticed a small break out twords the end of the 3rd month and ive been blaming
