Before Accutane And At The Start Of Month 5 Pics!

I don't really have much to say since I just posted a couple days ago and as for my skin, i'll let the pictures do the talking. This first one was a coupe days after I started accutane. My skin was never horrible but you can see the oilyness and im breaking out on my chin a lot. This was I believe in March so one month after starting accutane. Still oily, and have a couple pimples. I have make up on in this and the previous one. I didn't really take any designated photos for thi

Start To Month 5!

I went for my 4 month check up last Thursday, I am staying on 80 milligrams for this month but... This is probably my last month! Yayyyy! I'm so happy! My skin is pretty much 100 percent clear. It is simply, amazing. I can't even describe just how happy it makes me feel. No side effects at all. I moisturize with cetaphil twice a day and my skin stays nice most of, if not the entire day. I also use aquaphor a couple times a day, but that's it. How is everyone else doing? Don't lose hope, Accutane

Month 4

Wow, I haven't been on here since my last derm appointment about a month ago. Anyways month three was not as good as previous months. I broke out a lot more than I had been. I was on 60 milligrams for all of month three. I went to the derm last week and she upped me to 80 milligrams, since then my skin has improved. It's very nice. Still a lot of imperfections that can be improved upon but it's not too bad. Still no real side effects. Just dry lips but no cracking or anything. No headaches, join

Third Derm Visit, Coconut Oil, And Rant About Hype Around Accutane.

Okay so first things first, I went to the dermatologist today for my checkup, this will be the start of my third month. Holy crap time is flying! She said my skin is looking really good and I have to agree, I hardly have anything going on, I haven't even had to wear any make-up the last week, just tiny bits of cover-up, that has been REALLY nice. Anyways though, my derm upped my dose to 60 MG because my face still has some shine to it. She said this is probably the highest we will end up going,

Claravis Day...54 I Think?

Okay so since last post my skin has cleared up again, it looks pretty damn good so i'm happy again lol. I honestly think when I broke out a week or two ago, it was due to the fact that I was on my period. I only get my period once every 3 months due to the birth control i'm on so I never really think about it, but after my cycle ended my skin seemed to clear up. (sorry for any men who read this haha) Anyways, I go back to the derm in 4 days and i'm hoping I get bumped up to at least 60 MG. I hav

Claravis Day 45

So, my last post was about how happy I was with my new dose and how my derm told me that my skin shouldn't get any worse. Yeah, she lied. My skin was perfect looking until about a week ago, and now I have been breaking out on my cheeks and around my mouth in some bigger pimples. They aren't the huge under the skin kind or anything, but they aren't tiny either. It's just kind of a pain. I'm still very upbeat about it though, I know I am just going to improve. I'm excited for the 3 month mark bec

Accutane Update

Well it's been a while since Iaat posted, i'm in day I guess 31 now. I went to the derm last Friday and everything is great! She said my skin is responding really really well. I have had no side effects, my skin isn't even really dry. However, my derm did up me to 40 milligrams which I find super exciting! I'll just keep drinking lots of water and use tons of lotion still. ) Anyways besides that my dermatologist also gave me more good news which is that I won't have to be on Accutane for m

Claravis Day 17

I'm not even really sure why i'm updating. Nothing has really changed. Well okay thats not true. My skin looks pretty good, my dad saw me for the first time in about a week yesterday and he said my skin looks a lot cleaner. So far no initial breakout, my skin is just a little pink, but my skin is always pink so it really doesn't bother me. I guess i'm pretty lucky thus far. No side effects. Haven't had another headache, I just drink water non-stop. My skin isn't really dry still. I just have a c

Claravis Day 13

I just took my pill for today. It's a lot later than usual but I woke up super late cuz I was out super late. I have drank twice since I have been on Claravis, my doctor never said anything about not drinking, I really probably shouldnt drink though. Anyways though onto my skin. My skin isn't dry still, I still don't really have any big breakout, just a couple really little things. No under the skin big painful things. My blackheads look like they are surfacing or something though? I have no ide

Claravis (Accutane) Journey

Alright, I know there are about a million of these logs on this site, but I feel like this will be a good support for me while i'm on Claravis (which I is of course a generic brand of accutane). Anyways though, my name is Heather and I started Clarvis 9 days ago. I am on 20 mg a day which I feel like isn't a very high dosage, but hey i'm not a dermatologist. I weigh 133 and am about 5'7. My skin isn't really all that bad but I have been on EVERYTHING under the sun, and have been going to a derm
