Beginning Isotretinoin Today.



Brand name: Myorisan.

Dose: 40 mg, twice a day.

The day has come!

After 30 days of research, forum questions and interviewing others about Isotretinoin (better known as Accutane) I have finally received my prescription. The iPledge is a pain in the butt, and so is the blood being drawn, and the time windows for getting the prescription...but I finally have it!

When I went to pick it up, the pharmacist asked me if the medicine was for me and I was like "yeah, I'm wearing make up, that's why it looks presentable".

He kinda scared me though because he kept commenting about the side effects and how it's for severe acne not mild acne (I get pimples every day, I have tons of red marks on my cheeks and I get a zit or two per week). All I could say was that I'm prone to scarring and I tried everything for six years, and this is my last resort.

Anyways, I'm taking my first pill tonight. I'm very scared, but I'm willing to take the risk.

I'll make a blog about my first day tomorrow night after 3 pills.

fingers crossed.
