Day 5



So far so good. The dry skin is not too bad. The other major side effect to worry about is dry eyes. Since I wear contacts this is something that is really important for me. I have mild acne so I have not really seen much of a break out (I hope I don't have one). Feel free to ask me any questions!


HI there, I am on day 1! I just took it a few hours ago. So I am watching for any symptoms, I confess I coudn't sleep last night, worrying I was gonna start today.

I have mild acne too, but I get a few cysts on my chin and black heads and I am 39 so I'm just fed up with it.

I weigh about the same as you, height about the same, and I am also on 20 mg. Will your doctor bump you to 40 next month???

How are you washing your face? what products do you use?

Congratulations! I'm glad at least someone is reading my posts. After I started last week I found out that the dry skin is really hard to deal with, so I went and got a Clean & Clear face wash and Clean & Clear lotion that prevents acne. I'm sure you can find both of these at a local Walgreens.

I also would recommend getting some type of eye drops. The dry eyes can be pretty bad at times. I have contacts, so I end up just using contact solution, which works well for me.

Other than that I would just recommend drinking A LOT of water. Apparently the drug drains your body so you need to supply it with fluids.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
