6 more days of Accutane!!!



I don't think I mentioned before, but I just moved to a new city, so I won't be seeing my regular derm at the end of my accutane treatment (which is only 6 days away!!!) and I couldn't get in to see another doctor in my area for a couple of months. As soon as I see my new derm, I'm going to ask for a "maintenance antibiotic" to make sure my acne doesn't come back. I'm also going to see about having a filler injected where my last derm put a hole in my face with cortisone!! I'm really completely happy with my skin aside from that.

I still have some scarring that makes my skin look less than perfect, but accutane has definitely helped fade a lot of it. I truly wish I would have taken this drug in my early twenties and avoided some of these bad scars. Oh, well, such is life. I'll keep y'all posted on my post-accutane days as soon as they are here :)

How exciting that you're almost done! Congrats! We started at the same time, but I've been on a lower dose (30 mg), so I'm actually going to have to do 7 months total... And I'm moving 2,000 miles away before I'll finish my treatment! I hope everything goes well with your move and new dermatologist... I'm definitely nervous about the change. I can't wait to hear updates on your skin post-tane!
