Finished Accutane!

Hey all, So I'm finally finished with my accutane treatment and I couldn't be HAPPIER!! I have been on absorica 30 mg twice daily for five months. I did a good job at not missing any doses (the last month-November-I didn't do as good of a job, mostly because of the college schedule :/) I'd like to say that I think accutane is LITERALLY a miracle drug. I had heard people say it was amazing but I thought that it would just work ok. I am AMAZED at how well it has actually prevented pimpl

Weeks 5, 6, & 7 On Accutane

Hey all! So here's an update for the past few weeks. Well, the back pain seems to be off and on. I haven't noticed it as much this past week. One thing I have definitely started to notice is dry eyes. At times, they seem to burn a bit. I'm not for sure if it's because I'm a bit tired or not, but I think it's because of the medicine. This is a pretty common side effect though so I'm not worried. I'm probably going to get some type of solution to put in my eyes later on. I have noticed dry s

Week 4 On Accutane

Hey everyone! So here's an update on what's been happening with the accutane. Week 4 was sort of bad-ish. I feel like my good weeks and bad weeks keep alternating. Hopefully that stops soon. Anyways, the area between my eyebrows is staying clear, but my chin is continuing to break out. I guess this is supposed to happen though because I had a ton of under-the-skin whitehead-ish looking bumps before starting accutane. =/ I had a bump above my upper lip and one of each side of my nose also. =/ Tho

Week 3 On Accutane

Hey everyone! So I am almost finished with week 3 on accutane... and I have good news! My skin has looked better than it ever has in the past two years. I am extremely impressed with this product. All of the bumps between my eyebrows are gone. Almost all of the bumps of my chin are gone (a few are still underneath the surface). The areas between my eyebrows are still red and the pores are still open, but this is easily concealed with some foundation. Foundation that I recommend: Chanel pe

Weeks 1 & 2 On Accutane

Hey everyone, So I just started an accutane treatment and I wanted to post my experiences and results to this site. I am taking 60 mg (30 mg twice daily) of absorbica. I have what some consider to be mild acne, but it is very, very, very persistent. I have tried literally everything on the market-topicals like Epiduo and retin-a and antibiotics such as minocycline and ampicillin. Nothing seemed to be working! I have had persistent, large bumps develop between my eyebrows around a year and
