Day 23

The first month on accutane is flying by!! Feeling great so far...only side effects are dried lips and mild dry skin on my chin and neck. Best news is I am 100% clear! I woke up the last 5 days with not one zit! My skin is looking great...hoping it is too late in my treatment to get the dreaded initial breakout!! A month before I started Accutane I had counted the zits on my face and it was 22. Today almost a month in I am perfectly clear! Have a derm appointment next week to get blood work

Day 14

2 WEEKS DOWN!! I can't believe it took me almost 10 years to convince myself to take this drug! The only side effect I have experienced is dry lips. The oil production on my face has significantly decreased! I can not wait to continue on and see continued improvements in my skin. Will update you when I go to my one month appointment with the derm.

Day 7

One week complete of Accutane!! Not really much to mention....No side effects so I am happy! My skin is about the same. I had maybe three new pimples surface over the week but they were small and healed in a day. Not sure if that was because of Accutane. Will report more next week!

Day 1

May 30th is the start date!! Just took my first pill. 20 mg once a day. I called the pharmacist to make sure that was right because I see that a lot of others on this site take their pill twice a day, but it was right so I guess my doctor is just doing things a little different. I ate and took it with a full glass of water. Excited to get this started and done with soon! So I am not great with computers but am going to try to post some pictures so I can track my progress. Sorry these picture

Starting Accutane This Week

Hey Everyone!! I decided to start a blog on my journey using accutane. This website has been a life saver to read about others who are going through the same problems with acne as me! Acne is hard enough so it is really helpful having a website where you can go to learn more about products, hear others success stories and problems, and have a place to vent about stupid acne!!! So here is my story: I am a 27 year old female and I live in St. Louis Missouri. I have suffered with acn
