Hey guys, i'm new to all this, I thought i'd start an accutane blog from the start of week 2, seeing as my derm told me that the effects would not kick in until about week 2/3. Anyway, side effects so far have been slightly dry skin and lips but nothing I can't deal with. I'm using cetaphil gentle cleanser and moistursing lotion after that which i strongly recommend for dry skin. I work out in the gym at least 4 times per week and play a lot of football, so I was worried about the joint pains and muscle pains. However, i've been to the gym 4/5 times a week since taking accutane and have only noticed a slight pain in my lower back. This is nothing I can't handle and certainly won't stop me working out
Acne-wise...i've not really seen much of a difference. I never had severe acne, i'm probably moderate just now, no big cysts, a few whiteheads and a few big red pimples and blackheads etc. Anyway, I have just woke up this morning with 3 big whiteheads after shaving yesterday (i'm sure i get whiteheads from shaving) I popped them all, i know i shouldn't be popping them but I can;t help it lol. Anyway, i'm really hoping for some positive results, i've tried everything, nothing works. don't mean to sound like a sob story but acne really does ruin your life, normal people don't understand. I've been held back from going to social events, going on dates etc ahhh
ANyways, sorry to put you all on a downer , i'm gonna update daily so check out my blog dudes!
