After 5 days, I have no major side effects yet. Lips are starting to get dry. I have been putting carmex on every night before I go to bed and before I leave for work. Then I use Burt's bees lip balm throughout the day.
I had one larger bump on my forehead that cleared up quickly...a lot quicker than usual. Haven't had any kind of initial break out yet, though. But I am not sure I expect it. My acne is only mild when I am on birth control and just before I started Claravis, I took Bactrim for about a week and was having good results.
I'm contemplating stopping the birth control bill after a few months to make sure the Claravis really takes care of my acne and that it isn't being helped by the BC. I'm really not worried about pregnancy...my husband had a vasectomy and everytime I have gone off the pill, I don't ovulate. It will be like 9 months in between periods. I'm just like my mom and sister
I'll have to think about it.
