Nothing really new to report since I started taking accutane. I havent had a single side effect and my face hasn't really changed much since I started. I have noticed that my forehead is looking a little better since Day 1, and a lot of the stuff on my cheeks have died down. However, I have a few painful ones that still are pretty active on my cheek. Hopefully I'll start seeing some improvements come christmas, but I'm definitely not getting my hopes up.
Hey guys, So I decided to make a blog about my accutane experience, more so for my own benefit so that I can track my progress throughout the 6 month course. I am a 22 year old male, weighing about 200lbs, and I have had moderate acne ever since I was 14 years old. Acne is probably the worst thing there is and if I only knew about accutane earlier in my life I probably would've taken it along time ago. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing, but I think I've done enough research to feel comfortable with my decision to take the drug. I was prescribe 60mg of Claravis a day, along with an antibiotic that I take in the morning and night. As of now my face is pretty brutal. The sides of my face have large bumps that really hurt and my forehead breaks out pretty much every other day. It really sucks being in college with acne, especially when your trying to go out and talk to chicks. I really don't care what my face looks like when I'm with my close friends and people I'm comfortable around, but when it comes to meeting new people I get really self conscious about my face. So.....I'm hoping for the best with accutane and my attitude is very positive. It feels good to start something that is going to change your life for the better. I'm ready to take on the side effects head on with full force. Bring on the IB's, cuz 3-6 months of horrible acne for a clear face in the end is worth every bit when you compare it to 8 long years of acne that never goes away. I hope to stay committed to this blog and stay updated with the progress I'm making throughout these next few months. Talk to you soon!
