So I'm on day 6 of Accutane (40mg in the morning) and I have to say that its so far so good! I've had a really busy weekend away with friends and haven't really been looking after myself as much as I should (a few beers, not much moisturising or sleep!) and I'm doing ok. My back has been playing up really bad and my legs ache a bit but I've been quite active so I guess that's understandable. My skin isn't drying yet (I'm still using Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions) and my lips are doing well. I've been putting Vaseline on at night-time/morning with the odd touch up in the day and they've not dried out as yet. So far so good fellow accutaners, but I guess I've got a long time to go.
As regards my face, things are still pretty much the same as before although I haven't noticed any new spots coming up. I'm still on the Steroids so that my curb my initial breakout.
If anyone can tell me when the drying starts, that'd be helpful so that I can be prepared!
