So I am finally into my fourth month of Accutane, it's hard to believe how fast time has gone.
This morning my face looked really good, only about 2 hurting pimples and the rest of the marks are just scars and no active acne, 2 zitz!!! I can live with that!! I am just waiting patiently for these horrible red marks to fade.
I had a derma visit 2 days ago and he upped my dosage to 40 mg in the morning and 40 mg at night. I am on Ammnestene, but have a feeling my medicine will be changing YET AGAIN because I moved (transferred colleges) and have to changed pharmacies. I am going to Target this time around, only because I got a coupon in the mail, heck yes! I love coupons! My Derma also suggested I start taking Omega-3 fish oil, since my dosage is higher I may feel more dry. I am taking Dr. Theo's Official Omega-3 Fish Oil softgels (lemon flavored). They don't even smell of taste fishy, he said his patients love these, so I gave them a try. Only downside is they are pretty big softgels, but they go down smooth since they are like gel.
Anyways, the over all feeling at this point in the process if I don't mind putting my make up on anymore, I haven't felt that way in a long time. Before it would take forever, and I always was upset because the make up didn't even help cause it was THAT bad. Now my face is actually SMOOTH and I only need make up to cover scars! I LOVE IT. I am on the raod to loving my skin again! I can't wait.
my derma said since we upped my dosage- I might be off it sooner. I'm going to go 2 more months for sure, unless he really thinks otherwise. I'm kind of scared to get off it, I don't want my oily skin and acne to come back
OVERALL, ACCTUANE GETS TWO THUMBS WAY WAY WAY UP!!!!
