DAY #1-ACCUTANE

dead

199 views

Today I took my first pill.

It's taken about three years for me to get Accutane, due to insurance run-arounds and doctor-messups.

I'm relieved to finally have it in my possession [ YAY! 250$+ med.'s for 5$!!;]

I'm going to post a pic ASAP.

I want to well document this unneeded endeavor and hope that I can give someone hope,

lords know I use to run to the site when I was having a skin-dramatic breakdown to check out post-Tane results to get a teaspoon of hope.

Here's a little about my skin's history

My SKIN HISTORY:

-I've had mild acne since I was 14 years old.

-It worsen AFTER my doc started prescribing me anti-biotics (16)

-Then I on to try Proactiv --- biggest skin mistake EVER! It royally fucked up my skin.(17)

-After that I gave up on my doc's and did my own research and found TANE!(18-19)

-So for 2-3 years I've begged my derm. to gimme some, she eventually bulged(now, 20)

-By this time, my skin was already get crazy cystic acne, already scarred up , already wrinkled:(

-MY FACE IS A TOTAL MESS. I HOPE THIS CURES IT. (20)

[it really sucks for me because I look like a little girl(facial structure), but the condition of my face up close spells different. I just really want to relieve myself of the nuisance of a problem already.]

KEEP Y'ALL POSTED

I had the same experience with proactive!! Argh those darn things. Ha. Glad that you started Accutane. I started a little over a week ago. So far, nothing too crazy. Prepare for dry lips! With my experience, Day 4 is the day the symptoms start!!! Don't worry you're skin will be getting better in matter of couple months.. or maybe weeks! GOOD LUCK!best wishes,Cathy
