Week 8



Another quick update...

Month 2 has been pretty hard and discouraging. I knew going up to 60 mg I might break out, but I still wasn't prepared. Bad breakout during week 6 - not worse than my worst breakouts before accutane, but pretty bad. Couldn't be covered with makeup. I wouldn't say that it went away faster than usual either.

Now I'm in week 8, and my skin has calmed down but I still have the usual ton of invisible jawline bumps and a couple other blemishes. My skin is pretty normal and I can't say I've noticed a lot of changes yet. Tons of side effects though, but at least they make me feel like the drug is in my system and working.

Anyway, I went to the doctor today and he said some people do have to wait till month 3 or 4 to see results. Sigh. I'm staying on 60 mg to keep the side effects manageable.

So... I hope next month I have more positive things to write! I'm happy to be finishing month 2 because I really really want to start seeing some results soon.
