Accutane journey

Day 4/5

Sorry I forgot to post yesterday so I'll just include both days in todays post. Day 4/5 So last night I went to see Steve Aoki and it was pretty fucking dope. I took my mom's advice and didn't drink, but I took an edible before. I was super blazed by the time I got there and accutane+cottonmouth+dehydration=misery. My lips were so dry and I had no saliva to make them wet lol it was pretty shitty but whatever the show was sick. As for my acne its looking pretty good right now. I haven't had any new actives since being on accutane, but hopefully I don't jinx myself and get the infamous initial breakout. My face is mostly red bumps from previous acne. Im not sure if these are going to come out of my skin in vicious pimples or fade away. The left side of my neck is still kinda shitty looking but theres nothing too unbearable. The acne on my shoulder, chest and back is definitely looking better. They seem to be losing size and turning into little red bumps. Hopefully these can disappear soon.

Day 3

Day 3 My skin has stayed relatively consistent. The Accutane hasn't really kicked in yet My face was a bit dry this morning but nothing new or crazy. I felt pretty tired and achy by the end of the day, but that might have been because I was up early. Tomorrow I am going to a fat rave, except I'm bummed because I wont be able to drink :/ Not being able to drink is probably going to be the toughest part for me on accutane. Being a freshman at a college where 75% of students drinks every weekend is going to fucking blow but whatever. My mom told me, "You better not drink while on accutane...smoke weed instead or something" lolol gotta love the wise advice

Day 2

@Destinylynn89- That's awesome! I literally can't wait until I start seeing results. I wish u the best! Day 2 Nothing new really. My lips are a bit dryer but nothing too noticeable. Also I notice that some of my pimples have came more to the surface and some are scabbing over. However, this has happened in the past so I don't know if this is the accutane or just my natural cycle of acne. Cheers

Accutane Day 1

Background I am an 18 yr old male and I despise acne. I have had it for 4 years now and wish I could get rid of this black plague on my face and body--why I have resulted to Accutane. I have tried everything from minocycline, doxycycline, benzoyl peroxide, retin-a, face washes, moisturizers, etc. I am a first year in college and can't take it anymore. I literally avoid the mirror because I can't stand looking at my acne. My confidence is way below what it should be and hopefully Accutane can solve this. Day 1 (40 mg) So I just took my first pill and I felt like there was a light shining down from god with nice, heavenly music playing in the background. I have waited for this moment all month and after all of the annoying shit I had to go through to get it, made the moment even better. My insurance boned me last week and wouldn't cover it til my dermatologist would call in and clarify why I need to take this drug. However, stubborn as she is, my dermatologist wouldn't call in last week because she was on "Thanksgiving Vacation." Anyways, it worked out eventually and now I finally have it. Right now my skin is pretty shitty. I have a bumpy forehead, acne along my jaw line, and the top of my neck is filthy with acne. My shoulder have had actives, but they are now just mostly red spots. My back has a few actives, along with my chest. I can't wait for this miracle drug to kick in so I can look at my face in glee and not in shame!
