Well, I haven't posted on here in forever and a day. But I figured I should update you all with my progress if there is anyone even reading these anymore. I am 31 or so weeks in to the process... I was supposed to be off of accutane in March but we extended it because I was still having a few breakouts a month (like a pimple here and there, nothing cystic). I have a pack and a half left to take and then I am stopping the pills. I have gone pretty far over my cumulative dose based on my weight so
It has been a few weeks since I posted last time =/ I have been SO TIRED every day when I get off work that I come home and immediately pass out. I think the accutane is making me feel this way...
A few things have changed since the last time I was on here. My doctor upped my dosage to 60 mg per day so that I could be done a bit sooner than expected. I am supposed to take one 20mg a day and one 40 mg a day separately. However, I have been having the hardest time remembering to take my pills
I am a little bit late posting due to Black Friday but unfortunatley my breakouts have come back again, I guess for round two of an "initial breakout". At the beginning of week three I thought that my breakouts has cleared up some but it seems as if that was only temporary. Anywho, it'll clear up completely someday!
I go back this Friday for my first appointment with my dermatologist since I've started accutane to see how my levels are and to take another pregnancy test so I can get my next pac
Here we are, at the beginning of week 3! Time is flying by because I have been so busy! May should be here before I know it right?! <---- This is my positive outlook emoji haha
Anywho, I have seen a noticeable difference between the breakouts I had last week and the ones I have this week. I had some nasty big bumps last week that have dried up this week and are just kinda reddish... As you can see in the gallery if you look.
The inside of my nose still hurts as it is still the only
My boyfriend and I went to New Orleans for the Saints game this weekend and I woke up one night at the hotel and felt like I couldn't move my neck. Now, I am not sure if this is due to the accutane or if this bed at the hotel was just terrible, but either way it kind of freaked me out and I have heard that accutane will make your neck and muscles hurt. And also, with New Orleans comes drinking typically... I really toned it down this time though obviously (since I'm not trying to kill my liver)
Well, I am officially one week in on my journey to clear skin! 7 pills down, 173 more to go!
I have definitely experienced my initial breakout... But I just have to remind myself that this should be the last bad breakout that I ever have. Optimism is key. The left side of my neck is a war zone it seems Definitely won't be wearing my hair in a pony tail until this clears up. Weird thing is that the right side of my neck is completely clear. Is there a reason this is happening?
As far a
I took my first pill of amnesteem today and I am pretty nervous about what will happen in the following weeks and months ahead. I have heard horror stories and I remember seeing some of my classmates in high school who were taking accutane and how bad their faces got.
I found this site after visiting my dermatologist to try to get rid of my acne once and for all. He told me he wanted to put me on accutane since I had literally tried EVERYTHING under the sun and over the counter. Initially I tur
