School has been keeping me busy because finals are in less than two weeks so I haven't had a chance to update!!! Anyway! I finally got the prescription from my derm :D:D:D:D:DD:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D Gave it to Walgreens yesterday then they said that the derm forgot to put some number on the prescription o.O anyway the receptionist called them today and straitened everything out and I will be picking it up tomorrow :dance::redface::D:D:D:D:DD::redface::D:D:D:DD:D:D He put me on 40mg once a day at dinner time, which is great for me because i'm not a breakfast/morning person and they gave me two hand fulls of Aquaphor and a tube of Cetaphil facial cream. He was very specific when he told me to buy the cream and NOT the lotion so I will also be getting that tomorrow. I bought some body butter which works nice...I've only used lotion, but this last much longer on dry skin and feel better :redface: I asked the derm about the IB and he said he didn't expect me to go through it :dance: we'll see. I also mentioned red faces to him and he said it was because of dryness and to use plenty of the Cetaphil face cream and Aquaphor around my lips and nose. I asked him about headaches and he said because he was starting me off on a low dose he didn't expect me to get them, but if I did and the headache lasted a whole day, I should stop taking it and go back to see him for a lower dose. Let's hope those headaches will stay away :( The other side-effects I can handle. Of course he mentioned depression and should I ever feel depressed or just feel like something isn't right I should stop taking it right away and go see him. Let's hope that doesn't happen either!!! He said he's never had a patient suffer from depression with it.

I just want to thank all of ya'll for posting your blogs on your course of Accutane, they have all been really helpful and I'm so glad I came to this site before taking Accutane. Keep posting please!! :redface:

Gott do homework........

Yours truly,

Almost there
