Hi everyone I decided to start an accutane blog cos I know how helpful it can be to read others peoples experiences, I read 100's before deciding to go ahead with accutane. so here's another "accutane journey" to add to the pile. Today I am going to take my first accutane pill. I am on 20mg once a day for this month, It may change next month. My derm also put me on 500mg erythromycin anitibiotics to go with the accutane.
Ive stocked up one two chapsticks, one is a blistex one which is espcially for dry and chapped lips and some vaseline containing aloe vera, and a eucerin face cream for dry and chapped skin.
It has cost me ALOT, i mean alot. I went to a private clinic on london, It cost Â£180 for a consulation with a derm, Â£120 for a blood test and the actuall medicines cost nearly Â£60! tahts Â£360 just to start accutane!!!!! I hope its worth it, I don't mean to put any one off!! Just one factor you should consider I suppose.
Anyway I will keep my journey updated on this and let you know my experience and I hope I will be abel to put up some pictures too!
