So earlier this week I posted a half way post mid-week 2...still not sure if I was experiencing the initial breakout, or not, since most of the reviews I've read don't mention it until week 3...which I'm just about to embark on!
Upped my dosage to 40mg today and will keep it so for another month before seeing my derm for a blood test and update on the treatment.
I have switched my moisturiser to 'simple everyday moisture' as it's a little less oily and I don't think that the accutane has got to my skin so much that's is really really dry. I could be speaking far too early...let's see what week 3 has in store!
Side effects are really not so bad, the only dry thing are my lips and my eyes but the skin on my hands and arms are fine (my derm mentioned that these are the areas mostly affected by dryness...). Once again, perhaps now that I have increased to 40mg I might experience this in the coming weeks.
Other than that, there isn't much else to say really...skin has healed up from the outbreak earlier in the week, just left marks...typical. But I'm not too worried since apparently accutane gets rid of those too
Will keep you posted for next week - I reckon that's when things will start to get interesting...!
