When I say script, I of course mean prescription. I am on my fourth day of my first 30-day prescription of Claravis, or what most simply refer to as "Accutane", though Roche has stopped producing Accutane due to the popularity of generic brands. So far, I've seen no difference though many report dry skin within the first week. I don't know why I'm not responding as quickly because I'm typically very sensitive to chemicals.
I introduced myself about a month ago upon my first labs for the Isotrentinoin iPledge Program process. Maybe you read, maybe you didn't. But I will be continuing to log my experience with the drug. This is week one.
My skin is oily, fair, and uneven in complexion. My pores are enlarged and pools of oil and dirt. I have every type of infection possible within my epidermal layer: from black heads and dermatitis to white heads and cystular nodules. My skin, and this includes my upper arms, chest and back, seems like the bubbling surface of a overflowing, never ending aquifer of infection. I've changed my diet, regimen, and lifestyle. I've been prescribed every prescription possible for this condition. I try to use as many all natural products as possible; nothing works.
My skin is as frustrating as ever; I was at my wit's end. If I hadn't gotten my hands on my prescription, I don't know what I would've done. I'm still angry and exhausted with the struggle. I've given up with buying expensive cremes, cleansers and treatments. No matter what I do, it doesn't help, and so I'm willing to risk my joints, sight, liver, and muscles in effort to get rid of my tormentor. My affliction. My days of being a new-age leper are numbered.
I can't wait for the coming weeks.
