Day 30 - from 40mg to 60mg per day



So.. one month in. I cant believe how fast time went by!
I had my doctors appt 2 days ago and she told me to start taking 60mg per day since i havent had any side effects yet. Looks like my body is tolerating the drug so well!

Side effects:
- lips are tight/dry but nothing too bad tbh. Im still on Carmex every 30 min / 1 hour (i dont let them dry, just apply whenever i feel there is not much product left on my lips) but i think next week i will try Aquaphor and see if i like it better, since i read so much about it.
- no nose bleeds.
- only 4 new spots (3 of them are cysts) on the right side of my face/jaw line but they are so small i dont really care. They will go away eventually. No IB so far.
- lost 5lb. Very happy about it. But i dont think it has to do with the drug. I guess its because i cut out on the beer... i love craft beer and used to drink A LOT of it. so after 2 months of no alcohol, there is a lot of extra weight that goes away very easily.
-no joint or muscle pain
- no eye dryness
-no hair loss (thank god!)
- no dandruff anymore
- very dry hair (yay! Washing it every 5 days now, and it still looks wonderful)
-no more oily face (sooo happy about this!!)
-no mood changes 
- my face is sooo smooth! I think i see a slight improvement on the scarring. Nothing too much but its something.

So, overall, this first month of treatment has been great! I hope it continues being like this..
