Day 29 - "the Doctor Visit"

Well I had my first doctor visit three days ago since starting Accutane. Good news is I get to proceed into the next month on the same dosage. Bad news is that my triglycerides were a little high. It wasn't anything insane, but with it being the first month and four to go I'm worried what will happen as my body takes on more of the medication. My triglycerides were at 164 and she said they are supposed to be under 150. She told me to watch my sugar in-take, which I have already been doing?!?! I

Day 24 - "whose Skin Am I In?"

It's unbelievable the transformation my skin has made in the last week! No more oily/shiny face for me . I have never experienced dry skin on my face and I am absolutely loving it. I don't even care about the flakes. It was so much fun to go to the MAC make-up counter and letting the woman put any kind of face make up on me that she desired! This is the first time ever in my life I have worn foundation. My husband even said how great my skin looked, which he is the only opinion I ever care

Day 20 - "facial Hair...what?!?"

Can't believe I am approaching the end of my first month. I am so excited!! Few things are weighing heavy on my mind today. 1. I have been experiencing some facial hair growth and not happy about it. What is this peach fuzz that I am getting on my cheeks? Has anyone else experienced this before. It looks like my hairs on my chin are growing a little longer than usual too. It is funny, as one problem disappears another one approaches. 2. I get my first lab tests this Saturday, just two

Day 16 - "the Hangover"

So I woke up this morning with a very familiar headache...then hangover headache. The best part about it is that I didn't drink a drop of alcohol last night! How exciting... I get the worst hangover symptom without the added bonus of drinking! This is miserable!! I'm not a huge drinker but it would be nice to have a Blue Moon or glass of wine every so often. I'm trying to keep my body as healthy as possible, so I am not drinking the entire course of this medication. Nor am I going to take a

Day 14

I made it through the first two weeks!! I'm having a few side effects that are a given. My scalp has been peeling, so I look like I have dandruff which is always fun! My lips are of course dry and cracked at both edges. Sometimes it hurts so bad to open my mouth or smile! It's always fantastic looking in the mirror after meeting with a client and seeing a big skin flake on my lip or face Last week I had a cyst on my chin that was about the size of a dime. and a few other white heads that came

Im a 27 year old female that has battled moderate to mild acne for approximately 10 years. My acne is strictly hormonal and stress induced! After 8 years of using oral and topical antibiotics I have had enough. Quick list of every item I have used...erythromycin, doxycycline, minocycline, solodyn, duricef, duac gel, proactive, every natural remedy available, led pens....and the list goes on. I recently was married in June, and I had to battle acne right up to my wedding day. I cant tell you
