Day 1



Well, it's finally Day 1 of starting Claravis. I'm so nervous..my dad already has me convinced that I'm going to get some crazy rare disease and die. I'm so ready to be done with acne ONCE AND FOR ALL. I've tried pretty much every single acne product you could ever dream of and nothing worked. Finally after being doped up on antibiotics and getting MRSA I've decided to give Claravis a try. Hopefully the months will fly by and I'll be clean and clear before I know it! I'm still kind of skeptic right now though..and definitely not looking forward to the dryness and peeling. My face and eyes normally get dry in the winter without being on any medications, so I will probably be abusing some Cerave. Has anyone else already taken Claravis or Accutane and have any suggestions?? Any comments would be appreciated!

I was on Doxycycline for several years and it worked really well at first, but then stopped working completely. Then my dermatologist prescribed me Augmentin which is some serious stuff..after giving me a lower doseage my dermatologist kept upping the doseage every month which was really hard on my stomach

I know, I was so worried after looking up stories of people having all kinds of crazy side effects, but my dermatologist wasn't worried at all. I'm now into my second month and other than being a little moody sometimes and some minor joint pain in my back, it really isn't that bad at all!! I'm sure you'll do just fine and have clear skin in a couple of months! (fingers crossed)
