Claravis (Isotretenoin) Day 57- 80Mg

I haven't updated in a few weeks... and no.. it's not because i'm cured LOL. Although.. there is a LOT of improvement which is promising. The blister like lump next to my left eye is significantly smaller and i'm hoping another 30 days eliminates it completely. And the knot by my mouth, also on my right side is also WAY smaller. It has probably reduced 70% in size. I still cover this spot with a bandaid because it used to leak sporadically (gross). I'm pretty sure i'm past that point but i've wo

Claravis (Isotretenoin) Day 28 - 80Mg

1 Month down! Hooray!! Please oh please let the next 4 go quickly! For the first time in the two years since I stopped working.. I almost wished I had a job to keep my mind off of how slowly time seems to be ticking LOL. Luckily my OCD cleaning tendancies seem to keep me pretty occupied. Skin update: The 3 knots I have all seem to pretty much be the same except the most irritating one right by my mouth on my left side does SEEM smaller... but BARELY... at this rate it will take the entire 5

Claravis - (Isotretenoin) Day 23 - 80Mg

Here I am at the start of my 4th week. Yipee... Oh... I mean YIPEE!! I'm glad to almost have 1 month over with but honestly dreading the next 4 months after this one! My dryness is out of control around my nose, at the creases of my mouth and on my chin. I pretty much bathed in moisturizer before applying a little makeup for my dr. apt yesterday but after around 4 hours.. it looked a mess... I will probably look in to investing in a different moisturizer this week. I love the Burts Bees product

Claravis - 80Mg - Day 15

Well hello dry skin.. nice to see you. (sort of.) I took my middle sister to the dr. yesterday which meant being in public which meant wearing makeup. I lathered on as much moisturizer as I could before applying a little concealer and powder and it looked ok for a few hours. By the time we were headed home.. my chin was a flaky mess as was the area around my nose. I woke up this morning to a VERY dry face. My chin is peeling and the areas around my 'spots' (both cheeks) are flaky and will probab

Claravis (Isotretenoin) 80Mg - Day 12

I realize my original plan to "only post once a week" is out the door. I swear I wake up with new things to talk about daily so what the heck. I know I've said this before... but i'm still really surprised at my dose? Is ANYONE else here taking 80mg a day?? Maybe that's the reason why I literally have a new "side effect" every day? Not complaining... i'm just curious if anyone else is taking the same high dose as me? Sunday my entire body felt sort of itchy? I've always been good about mois

Claravis - (Isotretinoin) Day 8

I dont intend to update daily... BUT... a few things have changed just since my 1 week post yesterday so I thought I'd share: First of all.. my face is RED. Although the sunburned feeling has downgraded to just a mild sensitivity... I woke up this morning looking very flushed. I dont feel warm or anything but i look like i'm running fever especially on my cheeks. Last night around 11pm I also noticed that my chin felt chapped? Almost blistered? It doesn't hurt per say but it's even more sen

Claravis (Isotretinoin) Week 1

Yay! 1 week down19 to go LOL. I am a 5'7 female weighing 140 lbs taking 80mg of Claravis (40mg twice a day) Seems like a high dose to me?? BUT.. i'm not complaining since id rather take the agressive approach since i'm taking this stuff. Here is what I have experienced the last 7 days: Day 1 and 2 I had headaches pretty much all day. They weren't the migraine type headaches that i used to suffer from but they weren't fun. I haven't had another since though so if it was the Claravis maybe it

31 Yr Old Female Taking The Plunge In To Accutane Treatment

So I see a TON of blogs and but I haven't really encountered anything quite like MY story so I thought I'd share what's going on with me! I have never had that ever so envious flawless skin BUT.. I've been fortunate in my 31 years of life (including my adolescence) to have decent skin. Occassional breakouts but nothing major and NOTHING I couldn't live with. About 10 years ago (like an idiot) I burned my left cheek with a hair straigtener... and I mean I BURNT it.. it was awful and nasty. I
