I have been struggling with acne for 6 years and after going through EVERYTHING(nothing worked) I am using Accutane, 40mg every morning. I have mild-moderate but persistent acne
The first day was the worst, I felt sick and feverish, I had a non stop headache and my body hurt! ugh! I went to bed early after that.
Now that its day 4, I definitely notice my lips being drier. I've been drinking soo much water and applying aquaphor like crazy!
I use ponds for face moisturizer right now, my face isn't dry, its only my lips. I also went on a shopping spree and bought moisture bearing shampoos, conditioners, body creams and shaving cream. I use cetaphil to wash my face and I'm staying farr away from anything that will remotely make me dry!!
Wish me luck!! I'm hoping I don't get the side effects too bad, that's what I've been the most scared about. I don't want cracked and peeling lips! aghh:(
