Just got back from my derm appt. The exact opposite of what i wanted to happen, happened. I was the basic run-of-the-mill acne patient.
He suggested I go on doxycycline and use clindamycin.
Oh...wait..... IM ALREADY USING THAT CRAP!.
Sorry. Had to vent a moment. I mean, dont they read all that stuff you write down at the beginning? Or read teh stuff that the nurse typed into the computer? Come on now. He asked how long I had been on the doxy, and I told him about 6 weeks, and told him about my previous use with it. Im supposed to keep taking it for 3 more months, before we try mino, then accutane. Im supposed to bump up my spiro to 2.day which puts me at 100 mg. That totally sucks though because of how drained I was When I was taking it in the morning. And how am I supposed to keep taking 2/day when my script is for 1/day? No new script, but he did kindly send me home with doubt and a few samples of duac.... mind you they expire in 9 days.
What the hell. Im pretty upset over the experience. I may make a new appt with another doc there. I wondered why I was able to get in so quickly.... lol.
Okay, maybe the guy is right, but id love to feel like an ass about this post in the near future. Thats fine. I just don't think I will. And even if I do, atleast i'll have clear skin
The only good thing that happened during those 8 minutes, was he said, "You insurance will cover accutane, provided you fail to improve with the antibiotics." Which is awesome..... Ive neever wanted to go on accutane, but I would consider it now. Only, I know my skin will improve with antibiotics that im not resistant to. Unless...... it didnt improve..... and I was *taking* the antibiotics.
Gosh, that's immature of me. Sorry.
My only worry is that im supposed to reapply for health insurance in January, i think. Well... thats always a real hassle. Anything with the state is a real hassle. My fiancee makes too much (yeah, they think its toomuch....), and even if we aren't married, we are living together, and that means his income is apparently my income. So thats a speed bump to get over.
Anyways- Pill count?
2 spiro 50 mg/ day
2 doxy 100 mg/day
duac in am & pm
*seriously? all these buttons at the top, and no spell-check?*
