Week 3



Hey guys!

So I forgot to post Week 2's entry due to the fact I have been so busy with work and that I ...Got engaged!!! Yes my sweetie of 3 years proposed to me! So that is my exciting news!

Well so far so good on my accutane journey. My overly oily skin just seems normal now! It feels so weird not having to blot 3-4 times a day with clean n clear sheets! I noticed the black heads all rising on my nose - it lookls like a bunch of black dots ! Soo gross! But I know they are going to be gone soon so i just cover with makeup and go about my day. Also, I noticed some whiteheads popping up. They are very small and will never come to a head. Thank god for makeup!

Side effects I am currently experiencing: very dry lips, the inside of my nose is very dry and gets bloody! I haven't had a full blown bloody nose, but when i clean out my nose, there is always blood spots on my tissue (sorry to be gross) and my lower back hurts .

My appt is next week for my second blood draw and I will be bumped up to 60 mg from 40mg daily.

Hope all is well with everyone! Talk to you next week!

:- Congratulations on your engagement! I am ending my 3rd week on Accutane as well and am on 40mg currently, our skin sounds like it is reacting exactly the same. I was just looking at all of the blackheads with a magnification mirror today, wow I hope they just dry up. Gross! I am bumping up to 60mg on Sunday. Well, keep in touch and have fun on Valentine's day!
