I Have A Lot To Be Thankful For This Year, And I Have Finally Added Clear Skin To Thee List! ;^)

7 months after Accutane! All I can say is..I have the "out of sight out of mind" syndrome lately. No acne, no researching stupid expensive makeup, or "special" face washes-just simple, clean, non-oily, soft skin that I LOVE Its worth it, stop dwelling on the "if's" and do it, because if you hide out like I did, and wait until your fed up with your acne, your gonna think "Im so fed up now, and Accutane makes it worse, I cant handle any worse" lalala whelp, lemme tell ya. YOU CAN, a

Why helloooo there everyone, I am still taking Accutane/Claravis 80 mg/day Side Effects -dry face -dry lips -blurry vision -eczema on hands Whelp, I am finally on my last month of Accutane!!! YAY me! After my last visit with the derm, I was told that he wanted me to do a 6th month on tane. He said if I did a sixth month I'd be in the 70 percent "cured" group....Only thing is, when I spoke to my Insurance to make sure they would cover Accutane before I started, they said t

Good day friends, I am currently taking Accutane/Claravis 80mg/day Side effects: -Dry inside my nose -a bit of eczema on the top of my hands -blurry vision at night -dry lips -CLEAR SKIN I am doing so great on my fourth month, have to admit that it took me until the beginning of month four to clear up completely but I must say WOO WEEE it feels good.

Middle Of Month 4 On Accutane Claravis

Good day fellow acne sufferers, I am now on my fourth month of Accutane (Claravis) 80mg/day So, I went to the derm on the 6th and FINALLY they bumped me up to 80mg. Once again, a different dermatologist. I liked this one, although she made alot of "Oh how great your skin is looking" comments and come on lady, I think we both know that you have no idea what it looked like before, but hey its the thought that counts, eh! My face was finally pretty much fully clear besides some scaring f

Middle Of Month Three On Accutane

well helloooo there everybody, Hope you're all having a wonderful valentines day. Mines alright, as you can see instead of being out and about or wined and dined I'm here, blogging about my pimples! Hahaha!! I went to the derm about a week ago and he said that I will be staying on my 60mg/day of Claravis. A little disapointed to be honest, I have a friend that had to be on Tane twice and I defo don't wanna go through this again! I am hoping that he will at least bump me up to 80mg/

End Of Month Two On Accutane

Good day peeps, I am at the end of month two on Accutane!! Wow, it has been going fast. I am on 60mg/day Side Effects: -My face has been pretty red and "flushed" looking, as well as feeling hot. -Yesterday I had a killer headache but nothing a lil Advil can't take care of -Still going through the "initial breakout phase" (not as bad as what it was before the tane) So, all in all I would say I am seeing an improvement. The first month was a breeze and now I am feeling the

Day 45 On Accutane (Middle Of Month #2)

Hello everybody, Hope your all having a great day. Today is day 45 on my accutane-Claravis (60mg/day). Not much has changed from my last post actually. My skin is pretty inconsistant as of right now. One day I will have two or three cysts and they don't last as long as they used to, then a week or so later my skin has very few white heads and feels baby soft. I have noticed that my lips are annoying me a little bit more lately, but haven't actually gotten any worse. I just ge

Thee Start Of Month Numba Two!

Good afternoon everyone, Today is actually day 35 of my journey on the Tane. I went to the doc on Thursday the 5th and nothing but good news!!! One of the things I don't appreciate much is that I won't be having the same derm every time I go for a checkup..... When I mentioned this to the derm she simply said "Oh a lot of the Accutane users don't always get to meet with one doctor" like, we get the leftover as far as appointments go. Guess it annoyed me more than anything else. Maybe I

Mini Update Of Day 28 :)

Good day everyone, Happy new year!!!! I did have some drinks last night, about five or six, but I drank lots of water because I was feeling a bit guilty for already torturing my poor liver. Today is day 28 on my accutane, and I am still seeing more acne rise to the surface. Yesterday I noticed three more cysts on my forehead. Gee Whizz I just got rid of the other two. I also have about two cysts on each side of my cheeks (near the side burn area) and let me tell ya those bugge

Accutane Day 24

Hello all, Just stopping in to give you guys an update on my progress over the past week or so. So I think I am finally starting the "initial breakout" stage of my accutane journey. Monday was the first day that my lips started to look and feel more dry. No cracking and bleeding, but a bit of peeling and having the Aquaphor on all the time has helped TONS!! I also started noticing alot more blemishes on Monday. I now have about five cysts on the left side of my face right in the "s

A Wee Bit Bored, Thought I'd Update

Shmelllo everyone, Today is day nine of my accutane journey! Not sure if that "initial breakout" is just taking a bit longer than I anticipated or if I am somehow of a superhuman breed who takes to accutane after the first pill. hahhaha Yaaaa, probably not, but hey a girl can paint herself a pretty little picture of a perfect life! Anywho, over the last few days I have had a wee bit of acne popping up nothing painful or as bad as before I started, One...actually two if were being honest

Day 7 On Accutane

Today is day seven. My skin looks better than it has in a really long time. But, I have a feeling this is the calm before the storm, bring it on initial breakout! The faster I have to deal with you the faster you will be gone. I woke up today with a white head along my hairline which is normal for me. I also had a small one on my forehead and chin. Despite knowing I shouldn't pop them, I caved. I was more gentle than usual and unlike most pimples that I pop these were not painful and very litt

Isotretinoin (Claravis) Week One 12-10-11

Hello all, I am a 22 year old female. I have been struggling for many years with acne and after waiting for a very long time and trying everything else I could, I decided to start accutane. All through High school I had very nice clear skin with very few pimples at all. Around the age of 18 I started breaking out with lots of black heads and white heads. Over the next few years they gradually got worse and worse. Over the past year and a half I have plagued with cystic acne along with whi
