First Official Accutane Appointment



March 15th, 2016.

After a month of birth control, today was my first official Accutane appointment. My routine blood was drawn and I took my second (the first was taken when I was prescribed the birth control) pregnancy test. I was there for about two hours and it was utterly exhausting. After the long talks of Accutane side effects and the whole run through, I went home to fill out the iPledge questions before my Accutane prescription could be filled at the pharmacy. Unfortunately, I have to wait until tomorrow to start any of the medication because my pharmacy doesn't carry Accutane on hand and it has to be sent in. I'm not exactly sure of the dosage my dermatologist prescribed but I believe it was 30mg in the morning and 20mg at night. The amount you take will vary depending on severity and your weight! I personally weigh about 106 and I have severe acne. I'm excited to start tomorrow but I'm dreading the side effects. This is my last resort and I will do anything to get rid of my stubborn scarring acne. I'm going to update my journey every week or more if sudden side effects occur that I want to be documented.

Clear skin wishes and hugs sent your way,
