So, today was day 11 of Claravis 40 mg a day. I honestly haven't experienced many side effects thus far...my lips were a tad dry today, but nothing uncontrollable. I have been having a bit of an initial breakout, but its very light and the pimples clear quickly. My skin is peely, but I was already used to that from using retinoids beforehand. So really, nothing new...
My scalp is pretty itchy...i hope it doesn't flake!
I am trying to stay positive and just put everything in the hands of those little orange pills. I am currently using Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser twice daily, I use Eucerin Spf 30 Everyday Protection Lotion during the day (however I don't feel that it is going to be moisturizing enough when I start to get more dry?) And at night after cleansing I am using this great cream moisturizer that my derm gave me samples of...its called DML Forte. love it! Other than that just loading up the lips with Aquaphor constantly to avoid dry lips.
I have gotten tipsy while on accutane twice already...bad i know! I make sure to drink lots of water before and after. i actually have been trying to avoid going out at all so that I am not tempted to indulge! And school has started to that will help also.
Can't wait until my skin is so clear that I can let me boyfriend touch my face without flinching!
