So Iâm now on Day 44 of my course, been on the full dose for nearly a couple of weeks now. So far, my skin is still really good. I have one spot at the moment and the rest is completely clear. Even the red marks that are left after you have a bout of acne have cleared which is great. Was concerned that Iâd get another IB when I upped my dose but so far so good.
On the side effects front, my main complaint is my stomach. Iâve always had light IBS, but assumingly the medicine is really not agreeing with it! Itâs only been a few days of having problems so Iâm hoping itâll pass because itâs pretty annoying. Stomach pains normally followed by an urgent trip to the toiletâ¦ not very pleasant! But I have suffered from this before the medicine just not as bad. Itâs very easy to just blame everything on Accutane!
Iâve had trouble sleeping a few times as well. More falling asleep easily but waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep. Again, could be unrelated as Iâm a light sleeper anyway but itâs quite unusual for me to not be able to get back to sleep.
Skin is getting drier, and starting to spread to my hands and on my neck, I can feel little dry rough patches.
Oh well, I am nearing the halfway mark and it has gone quickly, so hopefully itâll be over in no time J I miss not being able to get drunk!
