In about a month I will start my accutane journey and I figured it would be helpful to share my journey with others that are maybe interested. I am a 22 year old African American female. I am also a senior in college so Im gonna be pretty busy this school year but I will try my best to give weekly updates and answer ANY questions or comments that people have.
I went to see my dermatologist on June 14th to start birth control and take my pregnancy test. I started birth control on the following day, Wednesday June 14th just as an FYI. My next appointment will be Monday August 17th which is when I will check back with you guys.
My dermatologist also prescribed me docycycline 100mg to take twice a day while I wait for the accutane process. I took that for two days straight and each time it created some sort of numbness in my throat so I have stopped taking it.
I will upload pictures of my face currently soon!
