Accutane Day 1




I am an 18 yr old male and I despise acne. I have had it for 4 years now and wish I could get rid of this black plague on my face and body--why I have resulted to Accutane. I have tried everything from minocycline, doxycycline, benzoyl peroxide, retin-a, face washes, moisturizers, etc. I am a first year in college and can't take it anymore. I literally avoid the mirror because I can't stand looking at my acne. My confidence is way below what it should be and hopefully Accutane can solve this.

Day 1 (40 mg)

So I just took my first pill and I felt like there was a light shining down from god with nice, heavenly music playing in the background. I have waited for this moment all month and after all of the annoying shit I had to go through to get it, made the moment even better. My insurance boned me last week and wouldn't cover it til my dermatologist would call in and clarify why I need to take this drug. However, stubborn as she is, my dermatologist wouldn't call in last week because she was on "Thanksgiving Vacation." Anyways, it worked out eventually and now I finally have it.

Right now my skin is pretty shitty. I have a bumpy forehead, acne along my jaw line, and the top of my neck is filthy with acne. My shoulder have had actives, but they are now just mostly red spots. My back has a few actives, along with my chest. I can't wait for this miracle drug to kick in so I can look at my face in glee and not in shame!

I know exactly how you feel taking that first pill feels amazing! remember it is going to get worse before it gets better.. when it does start clearing up you will notice a HUGE difference. Im on my 3rd week and my forehead has gone from being covered fully in acne to one small pimple left... :)
