Two Days Before Expected Start



I expect to start Accutane on Monday. I will have my second pre-tane pregnancy test performed and then will get the prescription. I am nervous about a few of the side effect: joint/muscle pain (I am a runner) and hair loss (it seems I lose enought already). I am 33 years old and have had moderate acne since I was 13. I have tried just about everything, with somethings working to some degree at various points. During the last few years my acne has been worse and I am sick of being on 5 medications to keep my acne under so/so control. I want to be clear.

I plan to drink a lot of water and eat extremely healthy (lots of fruits and veggies) to try to keep me as healthy and free of side effects as possible. I know there will be some, but hope they aren't extreme like some of the cases I read about.

We'll see!
