Well day 32 and had just been back to my GP for bloods and what I thought was going up to 30 or 40mg. My blood work was fine but I have developed eczema on my body and had 1 really bad weepy patch on my cheek (very very gross) so the doctor prescribed me some more cream to try and get it under control and she has left me on 20mg. It upset me a wee bit that I wasn't going up but she knows best I guess!
As far as the rest of my skin goes I have one active pimple that is under my eyebrow
So am now half way through week 2. Headaches and body aches are gone )
I have been drinking about 2lts of water a day, compared to my normal of none and am feeling good about that. In regards to my skin, one side has been looking better and smoother, the other side has a large pimple that is slowly drying out and have had 2 more little pimples pop up. I notice that new pimples go away a lot faster than they used to though.
I am on a low dose of only 20mg, will be going up to 30 or 40 next
So today I had my 8th accutane pill. I am also taking antibiotics morning and night to try and stop some of the breakout that is bound to happen. I am taking a low dosage of 20mg in the first month (I weigh 50kg) and am going up to 30mg after that, or maybe 40 depending on how I am going. So with that I'll be on tane for around 8 months in total.
Background - I am now 25 and have had acne since I was around 11. I have had periods where I had better skin, only 1 or 2 active pimple
