Accutane - 6 months



Just had my 6-month checkup!

All is well, still getting a few, small, "normal person" breakouts from time to time. I can definitely deal with that! However, my dermatologist is really adamant about me staying on Accutane until I've been completely 100% clear for at least 30 days to prevent it from coming back. This being my 3rd course on Accutane, I'm happy to do whatever I can to keep the acne away FOREVER.

This is an especially exciting time in my life. My college graduation is coming up in 3 weeks, and immediately after that, my boyfriend and I are following our dreams by moving across the country together. This is something we've talked about for nearly 5 years now, and I can't believe it's all actually really happening! The drive itself will take 3 days, and our 2 dogs will be with us (along with a U-haul trailer), so we'll be camping along the way rather than staying in hotels... that's 3 days without showering! This would have been a NIGHTMARE for me before Accutane!

All is set for me to transfer to a new dermatologist in my new town, and thankfully, my current insurance WILL cover everything (I won't be able to switch to my company's health insurance since my Accutane is a "preexisting condition"). It is kind of a pain that I'll be taking it for so long, but it is so, SO worth it.
