My time on amnesteem/accutane.

Entries in this blog


Day One...here we go!

Yesterday was day one on amnesteem 80mg/day. I am 26 years old, 134 pounds, my acne is moderate, rarely cyst- and only on face; I have never had back/shoulder acne. My siblings "grew out" of their acne, and I am the only one of us still having issues past age 23! Which is not fair. I am tired of covering up with makeup, and having days of not wanting to leave the house just because of my face. People without it dont understand it, and I hate when people with clear skin get one little pimple on their face, and say "OMG, I am SOO breaking out." Get over it, its one, imagine a FACE covered with them. Sorry to vent, but just wanted to clear that air. Back to my regimen: AM: wash face with SFC gentle soap free cleanser/lotion( I got it with my Duac rx) take 40mg amnesteem w/breakfast cetaphil lotion on face nivea lip balm PM: wash face with SFC take 40mg amnesteem with dinner cetaphil lotion on face Nivea body lotion on body and I am on the OrthoEvra patch I am considering buying T/gel shampoo as I keep hearing my scalp will be super dry and flaky. The main downside is I live in Florida, and its just now springtime! I will not enjoy having to stay in while most of my friends are at the beach! But I will do anything for clear skin! Pics to come!
