Accutane Day's 1-5



im 19 years old, i weigh 170, im 6'1, and i go to university of alabama! (Roll Tide) haha

Hey guys, i started accutane this monday, 2 - 20mg pills a day = 40mg daily

my doctor told me to do that for a week then take 4 pills a day = 80mg daily

So far so good, i guess, my acne was alright before i started, and my face has been getting worse and worse, it sucks, but i read that it gets worse before it gets better,

im kind of getting dry skin and dry lips on day 5 which is today, but its not bad, im sure it will get worse, hopefully not, who knows

the sucky thing is i only have 4 months of accutane supply, my insurance deductible is to high, so it would cost me around $1100 a month in USA, so i bought a 1 month supply from india = (isotretinoin), and the other 3 months i got when i went to south america for spring break 2 weeks ago, (roaccutane, the actual brand name drug) and it was cheap as hell man, but i only have 4 months of it, and when it runs out, it runs out, i wont be able to get more, so im really hoping my acne heals by then, but i dont know if my skin will change, when i go from the 3 month brand name to the 1 month generic isotretinoin, if you get what im saying, :/ this sucks. oh well. but yea im trying to stay positive, final exams are coming up

and i use benzoil peroxide facewash, lubriderm lotion, and blistex chapstick,

im taking 3 daily pics, 1 facing the camera, 1 left cheek, and 1 right cheek,

im going to do this everyday, i would upload pictures on here...but im to shy right now, i cant do it

ill do it when i finish accutane and if my skin clears up, hopefully it does!

but guys and girls if you need any tips or anything, or if you have any tips for me, please let me know

heres my email if yall want to reach me, mpatel2012@gmail.com

goodluck to everyone on their acne journey
