It has been awhile since I have updated. During that time nothing really changed. It has now. I'm just getting into my third month and my face is FINALLY completely clear. I have ONE small pimple that has been around for a long time but it is small and going away. I am completely AMAZED when I look in the mirror.
My side effects are still around. Some have gotten better and some far worse. My face is now peeling in certain areas which makes make-up application much harder. I still use founda
Today was my 1 month check up. My liver function was elevated since last time... that makes me a little nervous. They didn't really say too much about it and all I saw on the sheet was that it said +40 ? I still got my prescription for this month I'm just praying it isn't eleveated too much and I can continue to take this for the full 5 months.
Today my derm gave me 6 shots of cortisone. 5 in some larger nodules and 1 in my lip? The corner of my lip is really cracked so she gave me a cortiso
What do you use for your dry lips ?
Seriously my lips are so dry and the corners are so cracked I can't even eat and have to drink from a straw I'm literally dreading brushing my teeth. Right now I'm using aquaphor and caramex a d it's not helping!! (

As far as symptoms go, my dry lips are terrible. Cracks in the corner, hard to eat and hard to brush my teeth without bothering the cracked corners. I've been switching on and off all day and night between aquaphor and caramex, sometimes both at the same time... anything for some relief!!
My dry eyes are a little better, been using artificial tears 5-6 times a day and that has been helpi
Day 11, oddly enough my side effects seem to have improved rather than gotten worse? Has this happened to anyone else? This worries me. My dry eyes that were terrible just 2 days ago are now manageable, my dry nose is barely bothering me at all and my dry lips are mild compared to what they were 2 days ago.
I know I should probably be extrememly happy but i'm more concerned that it isn't working as well?
As far as acne goes I've gotten another little white head on my jaw line... nothing ma
I decided I'd really like to document my progress. This medication is pretty intense. Today is the first day of my second week. I am currently on 60 mg per day. It seems a little high? I'm 24 years old, 5'7" and 120 lbs. I see a lot of people on 20-40 mg but I guess my derm knows better than me. I've only gotten 3 white heads since starting last week which is a MAJOR improvement.
Side effects ...
