Month 4: Accutane

Well here I am at month 4...and unfortunately have not seen any improvement. My dermatologist was hesitant to up my dosage just because of the bloody noses I continue to have, so if anything, I may be kept on a longer course of treatment. Has this happened with anyone else? Feeling discouraged but I am definitely committed and hoping for a clear face soon! Happy healing #accutane

Month 3: Accutane

I am about a week into month three...and right now I am hoping this is the month to see a difference. I still have breakouts that are slowly starting to clear -- but my dermatologist was a little concerned. I don't have severe breakouts, they are just quite annoying. If he doesn't see any improvements by my next visit, my dosage may be increased. My symptoms are very minimal, I get a headache every now and then and my lips aren't too chapped! How was everyone's month thre

Month 2: Accutane

So I am now on day 3 of Month 2 dosage and feel like I'm getting better symptom wise every day. Everything that I told my dermatologist is normal -- so I am hoping it stays that way. I wanted to write today because I was wondering if any of you are experiencing these symptoms that are certainly tolerable, but I know there could be other products out there I can use to heal! 1) Cracked corner of my mouth -I've been using vaseline every morning & night and as needed -U

Accutane: Week 3

Well....I know accutane is starting to work. My skin just feels different altogether. In just my third week of accutane, my skin is noticeably dryer & less oily -- I thought I would never see the day. I was out of town last week in sunny LA, and because I was busy -- my skin stayed mostly clear. I think that my worst habit is sitting in front of a magnified mirror and be disgusted with my skin. We're not perfect - if we were perfect, treatments would not exist...for anything. I

Accutane: Week 2

Time is certainly moving quick -- even though I still wish my skin would clear up overnight! I can tell that it is trying to, so that's good at least. I don't have much to say this week other than that I can tell the accutane is kicking in. My pores are definitely more visible....it's like all the bad is trying to leave which I could not be more excited about. I have a little more break outs than I've had in a while, but I keep telling myself that it will get better. After I posted m

Week 1 Of Accutane

Well, here I am...writing about my first week of accutane. To be honest, I never thought I would start the journey of accutane -- I was used to hearing such negative things about it, but once my dermatologist asked if I wanted to keep wasting money on creams, cleansers and antibiotics, I knew it was time for a major change. I tried my best not to google about accutane since the negative stuff tends to be more pertinent. I stumbled across acne.org however, and loved that I could read the p
