Week one, day one

DaveSummit

273 views

I took my first dose at 5pm, and less than 12 hours later already noticed the drying out of my mouth, my lips, and eyes. Woke up this morning with some peeling on my lips and very dry mouth and eyes. Drank a ton of water today so far, put on Blistex medicated and it's mostly fine.

I plan on using:

Cetaphil cleanser for face

Trader Joe's lemon verbena soap for rest of body

CerAv face moisturizer if I need it

Blistex medicated or Aquaphor (whichever works better)

I started my course with a fairly moderate set of acne on my face, not the worst it's been over the past few weeks, but it's been really bad lately. I will say I woke up this morning with the one that was painful not being painful or swollen anymore. Don't know if this is already having an effect, but if I'm drying out already, then it would make sense that some of my acne ought to be as well.

Hello! I just finished my first week of Amnesteem :boohoo: My lips are super dry and gross -.-! I'm using aquaphor at the moment because regular chapstick doesn't last as long. I'm also on 40mg-day. Good luck this time around :D

Hi! Good luck getting started on your course! I've just recently started as well, and so far Carmex has worked wonders for my lips. Definitely keeps the dryness at bay. -Liz

You probably weight a lot less than I do; I'm 180-185, and on the same dose. Perhaps why you're experiencing a lot more dry lips than me. But I hope it goes well for you.

Thanks Liz. I'm happy with Blistex Medicated and Aquaphor so far, but I think everyone is different. I have a feeling I'll be getting a big dosage increase at my next Dr's visit--I just don't think this is having much effect so far. Hope I didn't just jinx myself.. :boohoo:
