Well today is technically day 9 but I haven't taken my ninth pill yet so let's just count it as day 1.
I've been at my parents house since Friday night and it's been so great here that im coming back again tonight. Had to leave this morning and am on my way to the dentists to see my braces. Invisalign is great because it shows you a custom animation of your own teeth and what they will look like after wearing the plastic aligners. And because of that you're able to know ahead of time how long your treatment will be.
Anyway, here is a review in point form of the observations I've made of my first week on Accutane. I hope this can help someone out if they're having second thoughts about going on Accutane.
For the record, I am a 22 female, 130lb, 5'6" on 40mg/day for 3 months as well as on birth control. I am taking the generic brands of Accutane (Clarus) and Alesse (Aviane), but this does not matter.
-My face is starting to flake even after moisturizing, you can see white flakes
-Lips are a bit dryer
-Hair feels dryer
-I have a voracious appetite as of late, especially for savory foods, not junk/sweets
-Since starting, no new breakouts!
-No change in skin appearance (yet)
-Mood is same, if anything, better
I think that's about it for now, if I remember anything later on today I'll be sure to add.
I just want to point out that those are the biggest most apparent things that I've noticed. The appetite might be from the birth control pills, I don't know. Right now I don't think that's a bad thing because I like to eat LOL.
