Started Month 5.

So, it's been a while since I've posted. I started first month 80mg per day. Then the next three months I went up to 100mg per day. Now this month I am at 120mg per day, and will do that next month as well. After this month I will be near my cumulative dose for 1mg/kg body weight. Instead of taking my last month at a lower dose and still hitting my goal cumulative dose, I am going to go aggressive at it and do another month of 120mg/day. It's fine, some people do 1.5mg/kg of weight or even 2mg/k

Day 15

Okay, so started day 15 today. My lips are definitely dry and my eyes as well. I have to put eye drops in my eyes at least once a day. This isn't helped by the upstate new york cold weather and the heat being on in the car and house. People who live in humid areas may fair better than me in this regards. I use nasal spray and aquaphor on my lips when I'm at home at night. I am noticing less pimple forming now and the pores actually looking smaller as well. My skin is making much less oil. If I d

Day 8

Ok so started day 8 today I believe. Today 100% notice a difference in my oil production; that it being way down. I am so oily and always shiny to the point where people ask if I'm sweating. I can wipe my head at work every 15 minutes and I will look oily again. Today its been 7 hours already and my face still looks matte and not shiny. I am going to have to start using facial moisturizer now. I started chapstick and nasal spray already. My hands and knuckles are dry; it doesn't help that I work

Day 5

Okay, so started day 5. Been taking my Absorica at night with glass of whole milk, a spoon of peanut butter, 3 fish oil capsules, and 8 pork rinds. I have noticed my strength and energy have gone down a bit. I was working out like crazy before I started and now I just cannot keep up with where I was. It's okay though, I'll do what I can, it's better than sitting stationary and doing nothing. Definite nasal dryness now, and definite dryness post shower. I go to work every day with eye drops and c

Day 3

Day 3 started today with my 5th dose. I noticed after last nights shower that my skin felt a littler tighter and dry than usual. Some definite nasal dryness starting today. Facial acne looks the same though.                *One other thing about Absorica; though it does absorb like 83% better on an empty stomach than regular generic Accutane, it still benefits to take any of these with meals with fat. So since I have the Absorica I don't over do it, but in the morning I make 3 eggs, and take my

Decision to Day 2

A little background: So I did one course of Accutane, the first using generic Amnesteem. I relapsed with acne shortly after stopping, and went on my 2nd course maybe 4 months after my first using generic Sotret. My insurance didn't allow for more than 80mg a day, so that is what I had to deal with even though it was under my weight for 1mg/kg of body weight. I am a 28 year old, athletic male, 240lbs now, during my first two courses I was around 225 lbs. I took my 2nd course for 7-8 months to tr
