Month 3 Accutane

lus4279

1026 views

So im a few days in to my third month of accutane. My initial break out is still ongoing but seems to be calming down. Still on the same dosage 30mg. My PIH hasn't faded as much as it did within the last couple months but still has lightened more. Keeping on with the vitamins to try and speed this process up.

Nothing really too bad with side effects. Had my first nose bleed the other week while showering and then the other day my bottom lip started bleeding from the dryness but thats it. Past few days I have feeling a bit unhappy/moody and irritated (a few people have picked up on this) nothing in particular so I'm just assuming its the tablets. I keep messing up and having a bit to drink then kicking myself the next day as I feel like it could get me taken off accutane if it does anything to my liver but because I'm on such a low dosage I'm not as strict as I would be on a higher dosage.

Might ask if they can up my dosage next month when I'm back to see the dermatologist. So glad the experience so far is no where near as bad as I imagined it to be.

Good luck, I hope you get a dosage increase! I got a nosebleed at least once a day for 7 months haha worst part was I had to withhold this from my derm or she wouldnt of put my dosage up , all whilst hoping one wouldn't come on whilst sitting there lol.
