Roaccutane - Day 48 (50mg)

Hey guys! Figured you all deserved an update.

So I go back to the hospital on the 31st of this month to get my blood levels checked again (they do it every 8 weeks here) I'm hoping to ask to get bumped upto 60mg.

side effects: okay so obviously this month I got bumped upto 50mg, and I will say that I have noticed a difference in terms of dryness. My lips are seriously dry and peel a ton, I wake up often having bit my lips during the night and they are bloody.

My face is MUCH more dry this month, more so that I need to moisturise through the day sometimes. 

I have noticed I am getting cuts from the slightest things like for example if I scratch my face or bang into something. My body is much more itchy this month, everywhere, and I find I have scratch marks from where I have scratched. 

Definitely been an increase in joint pain this month, my back feels rather stiff amf generally just sore.. it isnt debilitating though and I am still working out twice a week with regular 5 to 8 mile walks per day. 

Ive noticed a huge change in how thirsty I am... I am so bloody thirsty it is unreal! 

I am actually feeling pretty lethargic tbh, moreso than last month anyway.. I find myself not feeling bothered to do anything, mentally I am still rather impulsive and apathetic. 

skin update: things are good, really good. I still have some comedones and larger papules around my jaw area and perhaps 6 LITTLE comedones on my right cheek along with 1 papule and maybe 10 to 15 little comedones on my left! I started accutane with about easily 40 to 50 on each side of my face.

I have 2 spots on my forehead and slight texture issues which I know will resolve.. its clear for the most part though. 

I have NO spots or comedones on my chin at all or on my chest and back :D

Fantastic news about your skin!! So glad it's working for you :D
I have back/neck issues at the moment too, my muscles feel so tight and achey. Maybe it starts when blood levels get to a certain point.
