Accutane - 6 Months

1st month - 60mg Claravis 2nd month - 80mg Zenatane 3rd month - 80mg Zenatane 4th month - 80mg Zenatane 5th month - 80mg Zenatane 6th month - 80mg Absorica So I took my last pill on Saturday, March 29th. Derm prescribed Tazorac to keep oiliness at bay once some of it returns (said it typically will begin 2 to 3 weeks after stopping the medicine). My skin hasn't looked this good since I started getting acne in high school! Fingers crossed that it doesn't come back!

Accutane - 3 Months

Hi all. It's been a while since I last updated and I suppose that's because I haven't had anything to come on here and rant about. I'm still getting active acne, but not nearly as bad as I used to before. The derm and my mom both tell me that my skin is improving when they see me. I have been taking pictures every few weeks throughout the course, so it helps to go back and look at them to see how bad it was before. I've finished up 3 months and was getting a little worried since my acne isn't co

Accutane Journey - 5 Weeks

So it's been a little over 5 weeks since I started. Really not much new since last time I updated on here. Have had a few active pimples in the last week. I can't help but to squeeze them if they have a head and then I am really bad about picking the scab and dry skin the follows. This leads to red marks and prolonged healing of skin. I know I shouldn't do it, but I just can't help myself! On a good note, my pores do seem to be smaller than when I began!

Accutane Journey - 1 Month

So, I am 4 weeks and 1 day into my Accutane journey. Haven't experienced anything too horrible so far. My skin was slightly worse than usual last weekend, but nothing to hide out at home all day about. My family and dermatologist have told me that my skin is already looking better this week, so perhaps there is some improvement. Maybe I'm too critical to notice the overall and still see the small imperfections. Oh well. This past week I visited the dermatologist for my 1 month check in. My hepat

Finishing Up Week 1

So I have finished the first week of Accutane. Here are some things I've noticed: lips are drier than normal but definitely not cracked/peeling yet. It is just barely uncomfortable enough that I keep some sort of chapstick or moisturizer on them during the day and slather on the aquaphor before bed inside of my nose seems to be a little dry and for a lack of better words, has bloody boogers still getting pimples, no more or fewer than before beginning Accutane. Although, it does s
