Hey:) Well, its officially two weeks on Accutane and I have had a minor set back. Today was supposed to be my 14th pill but I am holding off until I can talk to my derm. A few days ago I started to get an achy lower back/left hip. No big deal, just chalking it up to the Accutane and just take some Advil. The back pain that day was sooo worth it because my skin is looking great:) Well, the pain gradually got worse and worse and worse until yesterday, it was absolutely unbearable. It took
Hey everyone I have officially made it through my first week of accutane. I must say, it has not been too bad thus far. The skin on my face is a little pink and definitely flakey. My skin sort of has a "waxy" appearance. Thats the best way I can describe it. I have not had any breakouts and don't have any more or less acne then I did a week ago.

Has anyone else noticed these things this early?? I am moisturizing and putting drops in my eyes. That seems to help
Hey everyone. I really don't have anything to report. It was easier to take my second pill today so that is good. I know it's only day two, so I am not expecting anything drastic to be happening quite yet. My face feels maybe a litte bit dryer but that is it. I think I will update weekly or if something exciting happens:) I hope that everyone is just as excited about this journey as I am!
So, I am a 30 year old female who has suffered with acne since I was 12. I have tried everything under the sun to clear it up........creams, antibiotics, birth control...over and over and over again....of course, without any luck. I have had enough.

I am ready to wear tank tops showing off my perfect skin. I am ready to wake up in the mornin
