I was prescribed Accutane a few weeks back now and finally plucked up the courage to take my first dose today. With just being back off holiday my cystic acne is reasonably under control due to the heat and the salt water from the sea. I still kept covered up though as to not worsen my PIH problem.
I took my first dose of 30mg of Accutane as well as 15 mg of Prednisolone ( a steroid to lessen the chances of side effects) just over half an hour ago. I will also be taking Vitamin E and a multi vitamin daily as I have heard that these can also help with the side effects that could occur.
The photo has been taken today and will update if I see any noticeable changes in my skin as time progresses.
I will try to update my blog daily with any new information or changes I have and hope that what I can provide for you guys can be helpful for anyone deciding to take the Accutane route.
If anyone has any advice / tips for the next four months then that would be appreciated
Here we go.
