Almost end of month 3

TIme has flown by. I stopped writing for awhile b/c that seemed to drag the process. Taking the tane pill just feels like taking a regular pill everyday. Like a multivitamin or something simple, I never think "Oh, here's some accutane" haha but yeah, my body has handled accutane very well. My skin isn't that dry, I actually need to wash my scalp every few days cause it does start to feel oily (not gross oily, just normal) my cheeks are pinkish but not bad. But my face has been unpredictable. Las

Month 2 day 5?

I think I'm on day 35. I don't even try to keep track anymore because then it makes the process seem a lot longer :/ but it just kinda sucks cause a week ago my face was looking good and now it looks gross again. I got a whitehead on the side of my nose, and my pores looked clogged and gross. When I wash my face some of my pores get unclogged and it looks like I have little holes in my face. I fucking hate this! My face is looking a little more red and I'm getting just a few whiteheads on my fac

Day 29

Hola everybody. I went to the derm today, did the preg test thing, blood work. Last month my derm told me that his goal was to up my dosage to 60mg for the 2nd month but he said that since I am doing so well on 40 mg he will just keep me at this dosage for the next 5 months. Oh, the only side effect I'm really experiencing is this weird rash on my arms and legs and he said its just dry skin. Weird, it doesn't feel dry and itchy, just bumpy but I can't really complain. I hope being on 40mg for 5

counting down the months...

I just want to fast forward time 6 months from now! ugh, I can't really complain about the accutane side effects right now but I just want to stop worrying having to take a pill and just finally have pretty skin and some REAL natural confidence, not the fake confidence that nasty makeup can give me. I want to feel pretty just being natural. Hopefully in 6-8 months I will be able to get a boyfriend! I think the reason why it hasn't worked out with a lot of the ppl I have dated is b/c of my shitty

Day 20

My face felt awesome today! Usually my face is sooo oily and nasty but it stayed super matte all day long. I LOVED IT! I absoluteleeey loved it, I can't even described how much it made me happy! This morning I put on my makeup and in the afternoon usually I "dab" my face with the oil sheets but today I did not have to do that, and when I got home around 5 it still looked the same... and even right now too, its 8. Its great:) I hope my face will continue to be matte looking even after accutane...

Day 18

My face isn't as red as it was a few days ago and my skin is a lot less oily yay. My skin isn't too dry, just a little bit around my mouth but that's pretty much it! I hung out with my friends last night, which I was so hesitant about since the beginning of the week my face was looking crappy that I was nervous to be around my friends with my face looking so crappy, but since the redness and bumps have subsided I feel okay. O, my eyes feel kinda dry too but I have been using systane eyedrops

The real day 17

Okay so today is really my day 17 lol my skin doesn't feel that dry today but I'm wondering if thats cause I slathered my face with cetaphil lotion last night hahah my lips not too dry, just a little and the redness on my cheeks has subsided just a tiny tiny bit. I wonder if my body is getting use to the drug now? Hm, oh and today when I had to speak in front of my class my face flushed easily. I don't know if that's bc I'm shy and easily embarassed or if thats a side effect Overall, I feel gr

Oh btw...

I doubt anybody is reading this blog but just wanted to say that I have been able to work out everyday and I have no achey joints or pain. I don't know if this will change once I start 60 mg next month but so far, so good. i love working out and I'm glad so far that accutane has not interfered with that. I work out 30 mins everyday, 15 mins running, and brisk walking and then a few mins of sit ups and weights. I think working out keeps me sane and feeling nice.

Day 16 or 17

I can't remember what day it is, 16 or 17... anyway, I can't believe its almost been a month since I've been on this stuff. Now, if only I could fast forward 5 months from now, then I would really be happy!!! UM, no changes since last time. Face is starting to get drier but no flaking. A little less oily. But face is still lobsterish red on my cheeks It looks so ugly... but bleh, thats it so far. Regimen: amnesteem 40 mg once a day cetaphil dry/sensitive skin soap aveeno or

Day 11,12,13

AHHH so up until day 11 is when my face started to look... bumpy. It was weird, my face was no quite red yet but it didn't have a smooth look to it, and I didn't have big red zits, almost looked like welts. It kinda looked like an allergic reaction type of thing but it only looked like that on sat afternoon, went away, then at night it looked bumpy ugly again. On Sunday it looked okay, used cetaphil lotion which kinda calmed it down but it was still red. OKay so todays monday and my face looks l

Day 4,5,6,7

I don't have much too update yet. Skin still oily, so I'm still using cetaphil normal to oily face wash. My scalp has been dry and flaky so I just bought dry scalp shampoo yesterday... Hmmm... my lips were really dry yesterday. They weren't too bad today, just kept applying a shiz load of carmex on my lips which helped. The first few days I started amnesteem I had some headaches but I didn't have any today or really yesterday. I was sleepy today but I think thats cause lack of sleep, I was up st

Day 2, 3

Nothing has really changed yet since I've started. I'm on 40 mg amnesteem. My acne hasn't really gotten worse or better, and I'm not expecting improvement either since its only been a few days. lol I have noticed that yesterday I felt headachey and today I had a dull headache in the morning but as soon as I ate it when away. My skin isn't dry yet, its actually still greasy. I woke up to a greasy face this morning but thats not out of the norm. My lips aren't dry yet ( I live in Utah and its sta

Day 1

Went to the derm yesterday, took my preg test, he wrote me up a prescription for amnesteem, I took my first 40 mg pill today. he said he hoped to put me on 60 mg next month, which kinda scared me cause that seems kinda high? Hope my side effects aren't too bad I'm anxious to see what the next few days will be like... If anyone else has taken accutane plz email me or reply to my posts, any tips or advice is greatly appreciated. thanks! Regimen 1st month:40 mg cetaphil face wash, a
