Well I have to report that my face is looking so much better. I am seriously think that I am going to like the out come after my HORRIBLE IB! So I was a victim of IB. But you know what I am in total awww now!! I have maybe 4-5 spots/pimples on my forehead, sure beats the 50 and then some!! Before I started accutane I had always 4-5 active but keep in mind I was always on antibotics too.

But my skin is just different. So much smoother and it just simply glows. I no longer have facial blemishes, very even toned. Pores are so much smalled. It looks great!

Now the side effects.....the aches are sometimes terrible. I am an active runner. If I do a 3-4 miles run my feet are so achy and sore after that it hurts to walk. My back is usually always sore no matter what and my neck also. I also sometimes get these strange spots on my hands(goes away in a few days after moisturizing).

Well thats about it. I am sure glad that I hung on. Next appt is May 5th. I fear that the doctor will up my dose and I will get another IB:( But maybe not right?

I got a really small IB on my left cheek after my miligrams were increased from 60 to 80mg a day. But nothing horrible like the first time. My derm also told me that the higher dose you can take the less chance you have of your acne coming back. She said occasionally you will have some people that will need a second accutane treatment. I am terrified I will be one of those people....I have never gotten dry like I have read in others post and I did not start geeting clear till my 3rd month. Fingers crossed this one treatment will keep me clear forever! :- Good Luck!!
