First Week on Accutane



First week on accutane has gone!! I remember you my regimen:

FIRST 10 DAYS : accutane 20 mg (1 pill\day) , moisturizer and a gel with clindamycin and tretinoin (in the nights)
THE NEXT DAYS : accutane 40 mg (2 pills of 20 mg\day) + the same creams.

To be honest, in the first 5 days it was like I was taking no medications.
By day 6, however, I started noticing an overall dryness on my face, especially on the nose and in its sides. In fact, I'm starting to peel off in this area. I can also see a general redness of the face. I think I'm starting to break out a little bit , indeed I got 3 new pimples (however, it's not a new thing for me, you know).
My lips are still fine and my hair is still oily as always.
I don't have any other side effects for the moment.
By the pictures it's not possible to see any differences between the "before accutane" and now.. so for this week I'm not posting any photos.

See you soon!!
