Last 3 Accutane Pills

I only have 1.5 days left of Accutane! I can't believe I made it throughout the entire treatment. Although dry, my skin is smooth and glows. The only scars I have are some red marks that I can easily cover up with make-up. A pain, but I'm okay with it. Although I haven't posted regularly, this site has been so helpful when I visited and read others' stories or needed support. THANK YOU!
 

Cholesterol And Accutane

I had to give up the miracle drug for 10 days. My cholesterol was elevated so I worked really hard to get that down -- and I did. But, my Triglycerides levels went up so I had to do a 10 day break. I restarted Accutane this week. I really, really hope I can make it to the end of my four or five months on this love/hate medication. So, this week my lips are getting dry again, as is my skin. No hair loss (thank goodness!). Stomach upset the first two days when I got back on. Tired, tired, ti

Accutane Day 34

I cried duing my monthly appointment on Friday. I just hate all of this and feel overwhelmed, but not suicidal or anything. I had a sinus infection this month and having a monthly cycle again (b/c IUD came out) is really hard. The hormones surging make me so touchy... Don't miss that at all! This is still an emotional rollercoaster, even though I feel better and my skin looks SO MUCH BETTER. With makeup, you can barely tell I've had any issues over the last few months. 'Tane is some strong
 

Accutane Day 22

Accutane is a friggin' miracle drug! My skin is smooth again and I haven't seen a cyst or pimple in days. I was at three Holiday events this week and felt pretty good. Best concealer ever - Lancome's undereye cream is great for all residual red spots left behind by bad pimples and cysts. As long as there isn't an open sore, than this waterproof concealer will be your best friend. It will make you look smooth and 'normal' again. Stomach issues - Subsided now, but I'm worried that my d

Accutane Day 12

Pimple update: I've had two other small pimples that have come and gone - one by my hairline on my forehead and one on my jawline. Then, two days ago I started getting a pyodermic faciale big cyst. A BIG ONE. Dark read and throbbing. It is smaller today and still closed because I no longer pick at my face. Ever. Acanya: I'm still putting Acanya on pimples when they surface. I'll do this until my skin becomes too flakey. I think it helps them go away quickly. Accutane Side Affects: Su
 

Accutane Day 4

I am so excited to finally start Accutane! I'm a 36-year old mom of two, married and a business owner. Pyoderma Faciale has taken over my life since Labor Day Weekend - not that I knew what it was at that point in time. My 'new normal' includes painful cysts and stares from people. I've worn band aids to business meetings, the gym, the grocery store, the PTA and restaurants. My fabulous business partner has covered meetings for me because I didn't want to see clients or go to events. I've been
