Hello. I continue to do well on Accutane with minimal side effects;however, my lips seem to be more chapped and have started to flake just a little. My face is getting a bit drier also and is starting to flake a bit. This does not concern me, as using Tazorac caused much more flaking and peeling than this! I am using Aquaphor and it helps alleviate the chapped feeling.
Most of my pimples are no longer active, are healing, but continue to be red. I have been able to cover these well with makeup. I have had no depression, joint pain or stomach problems. I continue to eat well, mostly salads, soup and low cholesterol foods. I take a handful of vitamins, drink lots of water and exercise each day. I am concerned about my cholesterol as it was slightly above 200 when I started Accutane. I did; however, just come off of a month of holiday party food and drink!
My husband got his Rx today and took his first dose tonight at dinner. He is on 3/40 mg. Pills a day. I will keep you posted on his progress.
Have a great night!
