Dose upped to 60MG a day



So.. where to start..

I had my first Dr. apt today since starting. She said my bloodwork was good but expected me to be more broken out. She wants to see everything deep down coming to the service. So, I'll be adding another 20mg's per day in the morning, bringing me to a total of 60 mg's per day. She told me to expect to break out a lttle bit more over the next couple of weeks - ugh!

My face still looks good but my neck is now covered in loads of tiny pimples - I never really got many pimples on my neck previously. This is def new.

One I'd rather not mention but just in case someone else is experiencing it I better give it a mention - new side effect is blood after my bowel movements :D Derm told me that it is normal, things down there dry out as well.

I woke up this morning just fine, felt a tingling an hour later and looked in the mirror to see a big old coldsore on my lip :D To top it off the Dermatologist put me on oral and topical meds for it as she is nervous about it moving to other parts of my face as my skin dries out - WTH.. I have never heard of someone having a Herpes Head but I guess she has witnessed it happen to someone on Accutane :D

So, 60mgs will begin in the morning and I will be upped again to 80mgs next month. Fingers crossed that the side effects won't be too too bad.

Hope everyone out there is doing well!
