Day 34

Allright, I promised myslelf to post regularly, so from now on, Im gonna post every other night. And it would probably be a good idea to make my posts more organized or something like that :

Day : 34

Current Regimen :

Accutane 5mg (every other day) ,

Cetaphil washing lotion (morning & night)

BP(for 2 days and than I take 2 days break)

AHA 10% every 3 days at night.

Supplements : Multivit, Zinc (30mg/d), SawPalmetto(400mg/d)

Omega3(500mg/d)Acidophilus(1pill/d)Lecithin(1000mg/d),B5(500mg/d), B-50(complex)

Pics (they're from day 32 when I started using BP once again..it's wierd but the redness I experience and oliness are hard to see on these pics , probably because of the camera...dunno :D) :



I've ordered some Generic Accutane which should be delivered by the end of April, that's when I'm planning to start taking 5mg/d. Btw, I switched from taking 2,5 mg/d to 5mg every other day, and the first day I took the pill (5mg yesterday) I was expecting some lips dryness (greater than on 2,5mg/d) but I felt normal, without any extra dryness ..however , the BP I've used for 2 days made my skin kind of brownish , same old look as probably everybody gets when starting BP:))))

but , I must admit it's making wonders to existing pimples - as you can see on the photos I took (I started BP on thursday night, and pictures were taken on Saturday) It's really hard to see some pimples which is because BP dried them out immediately , and apart from that all face is kind of red/brown thats why you can't really see red spots and pimples.

As I said, I'm using BP right now because of the strange breakouts I do get ocassionaly, but the goal is to increase the dose of Accutane slightly and use BP sporadically, when finally , probably after 6 month of this low dose treatment , stop using BP. We'll see.

Oh and , for those of you who are considering or just thinking about this low dose approach, you might wanna read this study that describes a small group of patients with seborhea and acne vulgaris. :


Take care everybody and stay the course ;)
