I took my first Roaccutane tablet last night straight after my dinner. I was apprehensive because the leaflet in the packet still says 'do not take if you have a peanut allergy), but the company 'Roche' and my dermatologist had assured me the peanut oil  has been taken out recently, soya is still present (which I am not allergic to). 

So I took the tablet painlessly without allergic reaction :) I felt fine but a few hours later I had cramps in my stomach. Not sure if it is related to the tablet, but it didn't last very long. 

I slept fine but when I woke up I was sweating quite a lot, and the corners of my eyes were quite dry. I applied all creams and feel fine now. 
My eyes are usually a little dry anyway because of eczema but I did notice a difference this morning. 

Here is a picture of all the samples my pharmacy recommended yesterday. (I had to write on them which is which until I get used to all of the names!)

I have been using this face moisturiser and I am finding it really good. My face of course hasn't dried out as much as I am expecting it will but it is even helping my eczema which is a bonus :) 


This lip moisturiser is really good too. I would usually use Vaseline on my lips when they are dry from eczema but this one from 'Uriage' is great :)

Great set of products! Is there expected to be any effect on your eczema from the Roaccutane?

On my body, no not that I'm aware. I have my eczema managed at the moment with the right creams etc so if I can keep that under control I should be ok - I hope! 
It's just my face I'm worried about, I always have dry lips and eye lids anyway so I'm not looking forward to the tablets drying them out even more

I know what you mean, I have always suffered from dry lips and have found that this feels different to my usual dryness.
