Accutane Weeks 4&5



I was super busy last week and I never got around to taking progress pictures or updating. eusa_doh.gif

Week 4: I don't really remember what happened exactly other than more dryness. The back pain has been getting better so I'm pretty happy about that. I've pretty much been clearing up and barely getting any new spots. I got an ACTUAL nose bleed while taking a test one day and it sucked. Now I put Aquaphore in my nose with a q-tip before bed and before school and I've had no nosebleeds at all.

Week 5: I went to my dermatologist and got my dosage raised to 60mg a day! She told me to pay attention to my back because accutane can cause some sort of disease where your spine becomes harder and not very flexible. The lady that puts the new info into iPledge didn't update my status on there and we had to go through all this trouble to get it done so I wouldn't have to go the whole weekend without the pills. My face is really clearing up and it's mostly just marks. banana.gif I can't really think of anything else so I'll update on week 7!
