Day 4



Ok, So I know I said I would update once a week but I thought I'd check in anyways. It's been 4 days and so far so good. 1 new spot on my cheek and other than that it's all god. No real dryness yet. I'm only taking 40mg for he first week so I wasn't really expecting too much to happen yet anyway.

Going to try the pawpaw Ointment for my lips this time round as I found most lip balms to be pretty average. I got nothing to lose, if it doesn't work I'll switch over to carmex or something else. Got the gentle face wash, body moisturiser, along with the eyedrops so now begins the waiting game I guess.

Has anyone else had 3 course of roaccutane/accutane? My derm said I'm pretty unlucky to have to have it 3 tmes as the repeat rate is like 3% after the 2nd course. Tried to find some good blogs for what to expect for the 3rd time e.g. dryness, breakouts etc whether it was going o be as bad as the other times.

next update in a few days I guess...i'll be up to 60mg by then - bring it on

Hey there!Good luck on your course! I too am one of the "special ones" that is on my third course of Accutane. I am only on 10mg/day which seems so miniscule, but I think it's to prevent side effects (yippee!). I'll keep following your progress! Good luck!RachL
