Accutane Week 5

I have been forgetting to do this every week because there isn't much to say. A week ago i started the 20 mg accutane. My doctor said to take the 20 mg pill everyday but i started out doing 20mg one day and then 10 mg the next day and so on because i had a few extra 10 mg tablets. The 20 mg started giving me headaches again so i have been only taking them every other day. The headaches go away when I take ibuprofen, so i doubt they are serious, but they are very annoying. In a few days I will try to start taking the 20 mg every day. My skin is still very very good. I have one large cystic pimple on my cheek that has been under my skin forever so I'm glad it's finally coming out, and a couple of little ones and that is it. The only thing that is preventing my skin from looking nice is the post inflammatory marks, but I have very few permanent pock marks. My skin regimen still has not changed since the last time I stated it. So far just dry lips and headaches are the only side effects I have.

If you are getting headaches you could be dehydrated from Accutane, so try drinking (3-4 L water per day).Good luck
