Day 33

Hey guys I'm back! I decided that I wasn't going to blog daily and become obsessive compulsive. I figured I would be less anxious if I didn't blog about my accutane everyday and track the progress daily. Also, I just got lazy..=)

Have I noticed a change? Yes! It's very gradual and but I'm happy with the progress so far. My friends and co workers have noticed my skin has gotten better, but I'm still convinced its still has a loong way to go. My forehead has gotten better and my complexion and tone has improved. Also it's strange for me to see my face matte! Ive always had oily skin and have to blot my face with blotting papers or tissue daily! It weird! No oil slick on my face! It's kinda nice. So far I haven't had a big IB yet. Just some medium size zits on my neck and the rest tiny pimples.

My side effects: Dry lips and nose. I have noticed my appetite increasing. I still work out 3 days a weeks and do my pilates. I drink lots of water and take my accuatane with milk.

I have a question for anyone out there? Did your DR. up the dosage on your second month? The reason I ask is my derm uped my dosaged and presrcibed Claravis, but the prescription was going to cost me 800$. I asked him if he could just keep the prescription the same dosage of amnestemm an dhe did. It only cost 300. Do you think it will hinder my results since I stuck w the same dosage and didnt go up in it? Any feedback??

I start Claravis 40mg per day tomorrow. I'm a bit scared because I have been noticing commercials regarding Accutane law suits.. but wish me luck!! I will be following your blog.

Hey there! I will be getting my 3rd perscription of accutane on Tues. I have been on amnesteem for 2 months @ 40mgs a day. So far so good! I had many reservations and was really worried about all the media hype and side effects before I went on it. I must say two months into my treatment now three, my side effects have been minimal. Just really bad chapped lips! I went into the situation with a positive attitude and had tried not be too overly obsessive with the bad things said about accutane. I think my derm will prescribe me claravis this time around and up my milligram! Im happy with the results so far!
