Day 116 Week 16 on Accutane



I am into the 16th week with my Accutane treatment. Right now, my face is 99% clear. I say that because i have a blemish on my right cheek. I still am breaking out horribly the week before and the week of my menstrual cycle but thats the only time I have a new break out.

I am now taking 60mg a day and will asked to have my dosage raised to 80mg for the remainder of my treatment when I see my Derm in January.

As for side effects.... I use both Cetaphil cleanser and Cetaphil moisturizer twice a day and my face is not dry, or cracking like before. My lips are still dry but I've gotten use to it over these last four months. Other than that, I haven't experienced anything too horrible this month other than some minor back pain.

I'm not sure when exactly my treatment will end, I havent really talked to my doctor about that but I'm worried my acne will return once off the medication. I pray and I hope my face will stay as beautiful and clear as it is now once I stop taking Accutane and forever afterwards!

I am now feeling comfortable in my own skin. It doesnt bother me to wear my hair up or to make eye contact. I feel so good about my overall appearance now. This drug is amazing, its taken forever to get to this point but I'm finally here...with clear beautiful skin.

Till next time..Ciao.
