Day 1: Accutane

jayjay.story

I have started on a very very low dosage (10mg / once a day). I actually asked my dermatologist to go higher, but she wanted me on a low dosage for 6 weeks before upping it. 

First day, nothing major, the only thing I noticed was being really thirsty/ feeling dehydrated. I think I ended up drinking like 4-5 litres of water and still not feeling satisfied. 

I made an effort to take Accutane with a reasonably fatty meal (a butter croissant) but going forward I'll try avocado on toast / something a little healthier / more sustainable. Did this make a difference for people? Would love to know if it was fine just taking it with a yogurt/ something lighter. 

I know this sounds weird but I'm actually really excited to start seeing some of the side effects kick in.
