One month on Accutane

As of tomorrow I will have completed one month of my Accutane course. So far it's really hard to say if I've seen much improvement. About the third week in, I got an initial breakout on my cheeks/jawline, chin, and around my mouth. I've never had an issue with blackheads before but in the past couple weeks the pores in my t-zone have been filled with them. i'm assuming it's just the medicine clearing out all the gunk in my pores.

Introduction/Day 1

Hey everyone! This post is really long, but it's my first, so bear with me! So, I'm finally starting Accutane after literally years of putting it off (which I will get into later). I decided to start this blog because I personally was very skeptical of the drug and struggled with the idea of taking for a long time, and I know there are many others out there that feel the same way. I figured if I shared my journey then it may put others at ease, and I also want something to be able to track my p
