Week 1 On Clavaris



Today marks day 7 for me. YAY!!! I'm glad to say that so far things haven't been too bad. Here it goes: (I take my medication before bed)

Day 1- Woke up to semi severe headace, had extreme thirst all day, and fever

Day 2- Chapped lips

Day 3- Nightsweats, chapped lips

Day 4- Nightsweats, woke up to breakout (7-8) new bumps, chapped lips

Day 5- Dryness around mouth and chin, headache, chapped lips

Day 6- Headache, chapped lips

Day 7- Chapped lips

I read a blog that suggested taking the med with peanuts. Needless to say I have stocked up on peanuts to see if it alleviates some of the side effects. I will update whether there is a difference. I've been using Dr. Dan's Cortibalm and Aquaphor on my lips which helps. I also started drinking lots of water prior to starting Clavaris to help train myself in coping with the extreme thirst. I have continued to use my LHA face wash with a gentle facial brush, and I moisturize with Cetaphil 50spf mouisturizer. So far so good. I will post again next week....and add my before pictures.


You probably aren't drinking enough water if you are getting headaches that often. Drink a ton ton ton of water like way more water than you ever thought you would need to drink. I am on my 13'th day and have only had one headache and it was awful. I can not imagine how I would feel if I was having headaches that often. Drink lots of water and see if it helps!

@Hgresz thanks. I have increased the amount of water, and I haven't had a headache for 4 days. Thank God.
