it is no wonder many people stop posting after week 4 or so. i have not noticed any changes since then and everything stops being new. my face is def smoother, i only wash it once a day to prevent dryness. its summer here, and even though my face gets sweaty... it doesnt get oily as it ususally did.
i kinda wonder if that will be forever or not. itd be so nice if it was...
i have id say... no blackheads whatsoever. which is weird. i fell back into my picking habbits the other day and i realized... i had nothing to pick on!!!!!
blood tests came back normal, so my body is taking it well. when i saw my dermatologist she was def really happy with the results in general so that made me feel a whole lot better in general. she thought i was taking cortizone, and when i said i wasnt she couldnt believe how "great" i looked without it (she gave me cortizone to prevent side effects like inflammation etc)
secondary effects are in fact no biggy at all. i have aquaphor with me all the time but i even noticed i need to put it on less than in the begining. i dont feel particularily blinder at night haha or more sensitive to light. i mean at least i dont see a difference.
the lack of concentration thing was true for me the first maybe 2 to 3 weeks. i am 100% normal at this point. i have no trouble with that.
i do have occasional headaches. but i dont know if i should blame accutane or the heat lol...
the sun is REALLY bad for you when youre on these meds though. because of my job, i spend litterally 3 minutes under the sun (haha) and i get very red.
i am currently on 70mg a day, i weight about 68 kg or so.
i am sorry not to have done this earlier and to have been so scared off by many people, esp for the 2ndary effects!!!.
