So today is day 86 and this past Friday, I recently finished my month 3 cycle of Accutane (alternating 40mg to 60mg every other day). I have yet to see my Dermatologist but I have my month 3 follow up appointment this coming Friday.
I am really impressed with the effects of this drug. My face looks soo good compared to a couple months ago. I still have a few small blemishes amongst my face but no painful nodules like before. I am still having difficulty around the time of my monthly cycle, it seems thats the only time I get any new breakouts. Hopefully with the next few months that I'm on this amazing drug, the breakouts around the time of my cycle will subside.
As for side effects, My lips are still really dry and my eyes seem to be more sensitive (especially) since the dosage increase. I have noticed more flare ups with my eczema, especially on my forearms, left shoulder, and hands.
I feel so much more confident now that my face has cleared, I've even switched makeup. I'm now using bareminerals and it looks like I'm not wearing any makeup. Its so amazing. I have that glow, I'm looking forward to the beautiful skin!!
Until next time, Ciao.
