Week 1 Accutane complete!

Hello everyone! I have just completed my first week on accutane. I just figured out how to get to this blog thing so I think I posted one thing on a regular message board before but from now on I will just post things here.

So it's been one week on the treatment so far. I am taking claravis 60mg/day. The first few days I did not really feel or see any changes but yesterday I started to think otherwise. I am not sure if I am having the initial breakout right now but in the last couple days I have broken out with three large pimples on my chin, a couple deep ones on my cheeks, and the same in a couple spots on my neck. I feel like this might be the medication because although I normally had breakouts before going on it they were not as large and painful as the pimples I have now. But who knows, maybe the worst is still yet to come! So I am still washing and moisturizing my face twice a day with Cetaphil. My lips have also become a lot more dried out over the last 2 days, and I have been moisturizing them with chapstick and aquifer, which is great stuff! Other than that I have not really had any other side effects yet, and hopefully I won't. My dermatologist said I will probably stay on this for 5 months, the first month I will breakout pretty bad and the 2nd month I will start to clear up so I am anxious to see what happens! I really don't want to have to breakout this first month but if I start clearing up in the 2nd month I think I will be ok with that. Good luck to everyone else just starting out on Accutane like I am, and I will try to keep updated with my logs!
