Day 7

Today marks day 7 and my skin is just getting dryer everyday. My face especially is getting dry on my chin and nose. I'm also going into the initial breakout stage of the medication which is just oh so wonderful. I'm so glad I just have finals this week then I go on spring break so I don't have to see too many people right now. Hopefully when I get back from spring break things will start looking better and clearing up a little. I know I still have a long ways to go but right now I'm just doubting that it's going to get better. :(

Hey there! Good to hear you've gotten through your first week. Just a reminder: there is almost a 0% chance it will not get better. 90% of all acne cases are cured with Accutane (quoted from my derm today) so just know you're getting the IB out of the way and the path will be way smoother from here on out!

2 questions: what is the original severity of your acne? also is this breakout more "purging" or just like a normal breakout?

I am starting tomorrow so I'm very apprehensive, lol. Thanks!

I know. I guess I'm just super impatient and want results like now lol. But my acne is pretty severe. Not as bad as some that I've seen but my cheeks are pretty severe. And it's been just like a normal breakout. Thankfully though it's already starting to clear up! So at least it doesn't last too long. 
Good luck!!! I know I'm late replying so you've probably already started but don't be too nervous. Honestly I'm feeling fine. Everything is getting dryer and dryer as the days go by but that's the only side effect I've had. Vaseline and Chapstick have become my best friends. My lips are starting to really dry out which is definitely annoying but it's tolerable. The thought of having clear skin is what makes this all worth it.
