I guess I'll give a break background on my personal experiences with acne lol. So i have been breaking out since I was 11 years old (I'm currently 20). I never had severe acne more like mild-moderate. Its just ALWAYS been a nuisance. I have been on almost everything, proactiv acne free, prescriptions, antibiotics. EVERYTHING. The sad part is some of the things I've tried have worked its just that all of a sudden my body would build up an immunity to it and BAM here thy come again! *cue the violins*
After almost 4 yrs with my Derm she suggested that I go on Accutane. She said that other derms would probably think she was crazy for putting me on Accutane because its ususally prescribed for people with severe cystic acne, but she knew that my acne is very persistant and nothing she's put me on has had a lasting effect. I was a little apprehensive because like everyone else I had heard some crazy side effects about Accutane. So i did my research and decided that I would begin taking it. I am just SOOO tired of breaking out. I'm starting to get small scars because of my presistant acne, and I break out allll over my body. URGHH soooo annoying and it makes me feel so self conscious. I have SOO many acne scars on my back .
So anyway I just started my regimen Wednesday (Jan 19th ), 20mgs of Amnesteem twice a day.(40 Mg in total). I haven't experienced any side effects as of yet *knocks on wood* and I hope I dont!! The only thing is my skin just started breaking out worse than usual yesterday. I have like 10 pimples on my face right now and its getting on my LAST nerve. Im praying that this is as bad as it will get because I'm already getting pretty worried.
I want to track my progess throughout my journey for you guys as well as my self so Ill defintely keep you guys posted. WISH ME LUCk
