Still going

Things are still progressing according to plan.  I stopped using the Clindamycin lotion regularly because the breakouts healed and it was drying my skin too much.  I went through the 30 day course of Ceftin, that finished a while ago and still no new breakouts.  Between those 2 prescriptions I would say they're the most effective way to stop serious breakouts in the short-term.  Obviously accutane is the only long term solution for people like us.   A couple of days ago I did start app

Interruption and Redux

By the end 4th month things were going so very well and I fell off on updating this "blog".  I'm guessing that happens a lot on this site.  At the end of the 5th month I was beyond thrilled with my results.  After so many years, hell decades of battling acne things were turning around, and accutane should have lasting effects!  I was elated. Unfortunately at the end of the 5th I got some bad news.  My platelets were low.  I know you're not supposed to drink on this drug and I did really well at

My Third Month Of Claravis

I'm about a week into my third month on Claravis. I used to be super oily all the time. Photos with flashes would reflect off me, I'd see myself in mirrors with a shine, it was terrible. Now I rarely notice oil. It's 3pm on a Sunday and I haven't showered or even washed my face since last night, and I'm not oily. It's night and day. It's also very rare for me to get a new pimple. I do still have some older pimples hanging on. Some are just dark spots where the skin sticks out and th

Starting My Second Month.

I'm a couple of days into my second month of 40mg claravis. My skin is changing. I'm not anywhere near as oily as I was a month ago, it's really sort of a miracle. I'm not all shiny, my collars aren't all oily after a long day at work. My pores are different. Before accutane a lot of my pores would excrete white stuff if I squeezed them, that's almost completely gone now. For the last week or so I've been noticing these things in my pores, google says they're filaments. Some are big enough

Finally Giving In And Trying Claravis (Accutane)

My acne first started when I was a teenager. Initially I tried some different over the counter products. Near the end of high school I started on antibiotics. First Tetracycline, and then Minocycline, at some point Amoxicillin, probably some that I've forgotten, and until yesterday I was taking Bactrim. I was on the Bactrim for years. When I first started, it seemed like a miracle drug. It reminded me of when I first got on Minocycline. But like all of the rest, the efficacy eventually wo
