I've made it to week 3!! I honestly thought that the side effects would be horrible by now and my entire face would be peeling off. Other than a little joint pain and slightly dry skin, lips, and eyes, it really hasn't been that bad. I can definitely tell that the medicine is working though..thank you initial outbreak. Gotta love it. My blackheads are emptying out and I've gotten several small painful cysts on my face. Other than that my face seems to already be clearing up quite a bit! I'm afraid to get my hopes up this soon though. I've heard that it takes about 6-8 weeks to start seeing good results so who knows??The only thing that has been tough so far is having to watch what I eat to keep my cholesterol levels down. I feel like such a grandma even saying that haha but what with it being Thanksgiving and Christmas there is so much DESSERT. Pumpkin pie, cheesecake, pecan pie, Christmas cookies..the list goes on and on and I can't partake of any of it. Maybe I'll lose a couple pounds from it though and then I'll be lookin dang fine once my face is FINALLY clear for good!
