Hi friends! I started my first round of accutane around Jan 11, 2011. I was on it for 5 months and I had good results. Until now. Throughout my treatment I didn't have too bad of side effects. I had the typical very chapped lips and maybe some mood swings. Other than that my body handled it well. I got off Accutane around May 12 and up until now my skin was great. I had my usual hormonal breakouts but now my acne is coming back!!! I went to my derm and he even said I had alot of acne for someo
Hey guys I'm back! I decided that I wasn't going to blog daily and become obsessive compulsive. I figured I would be less anxious if I didn't blog about my accutane everyday and track the progress daily. Also, I just got lazy..=)
Have I noticed a change? Yes! It's very gradual and but I'm happy with the progress so far. My friends and co workers have noticed my skin has gotten better, but I'm still convinced its still has a loong way to go. My forehead has gotten better and my complexion and
Side Effects: Dry Lips, itchy dry flaky scalp. Still no difference. My face seems dewy still and acne is still the same. Ughh. Will it even wprk for me? When is the IB going to to happen? Im getting all stressed out and don't want to have high hopes! I went out tonight and I had to put on a heavy foundation on to cover my skin. So annoyed.
Hi everyone! Its day 12 and here are my reports. Dry lips is what is the main side effect Im feeling. My skin is still oily but has a weird tone to it. My scalp is dry and flaky and gets itchy at times. Other than that it seems like the side effects have been mellow. I have been able to work out as usual. I take my accutane with a glass of milk. I have been sleeping better. I guess I have been happier actually because I know taking this drug can help my skin. Im looking forward to have my skin
Day 8 symptoms: DRY DRY LIPS! and Very thirsty all the time. My skin is starting to flake a little bit. It seems like my complexion looks more even but still has small hard little pimples all over my neck and back, down my spine and side of my face. My forehead look a teeny bit better excpet for a few med zits! I thinking how bad can the IB be really be?

Hey hey everyone! So it is my one week on being on amnesteen 20mg a day 2x a day! I have not had any major changes. Just the dry lips. It's hard for me to tell. The hard little zits all over my face, neck and back are still here. They do seem to look like they are drying out and it seems the comedo is having an easier time coming out. Mind you, my zits are the small hard ones. It looks like a blind person could read braille on my face right now. Im not feeling quite so tired anymore and I have a
I didn't notice any thing different today. Just the dry lips. I was at the beach today and was wondering if its ok that I was in the sun from 1-5pm? I wore a hat and had suncreen on my face and drank lots of water and kept reapplying my lipbalm. My small zits are still all over my face and neck and chest. I think they are getting owrse! Eww when I wash my face I get so bummed and grossed out that I feel all these little bumps on my skin instead of smooth skin.Its times like that I get soo frus
Hi everyone! So here I am on my 5th day of accutane. I know it is a bit soon to really see any major changes or side effects but, I guess it feels good to get stuff off my chest! I never thought that going on a medication would get me to be so critical and super conscious of my health, mind and body.

Hi all! I started accutane yesterday and I was looking online for other people's results and their personal experiences. So here I am I guess experimenting with blogging my experience.
