3 Months Down, 3 More To Go



I went to the Derm last week, which would be my half way point. Told him I was getting especially sore and achy, and so he agreed to lower my dosage this month to 60mg/day instead of my usual 80mg/day.

I feel better already, but I have to say, he does plan to up it again for my final month in June. I really am praying so hard this works this time. I don't think I'd do Accutane again. When I think about it, it truly is a miracle worker, in my opinion.

But I'm having a hard time this round. I feel like I started in winter and I started with a cold, and since then, I haven't felt quite right. Meaning..I thought I had a sinus infection and although most of my symptoms of that have gone away, my ears are acting up now. Just in the sense that I get ear aches. This may have nothing at all to do with Accutane, and it could just be me being sick. But I've never had ear aches, or issues with my ears. They feel achy and sometimes full. Which, in turn leads to pain in my head area/jaw area.

I went to an ENT and he thinks that I have some sort of tube dysfunction. He gave me 2 weeks of prendisone.. I felt immediate relief since taking them last week, and then I woke up this mroning with an ear ache again. I'm still on them for another week. I'm hoping to blame the funky PA weather we have been having. It's literally 70 degrees one day and 40 the next. I think my body is fed up with the changes.

I'm not entirely sure I want to get tubes in my ears at this juncture...or if I want to wait til my Tane course is over and summer is here to see if any of this mess goes away.

Any thoughts/comments are appreicated!
