Week 1



So, I have finally started my first week of accutane! I have had acne since high school (am now 22) and while it is not extreme, it is moderate and very persistent. I have tried everything recommended to me by my dermatologist from topical retinoids to antibiotics (I was on doxycycline for 5 months) and nothing seemed to clear it up totally. I would go weeks with relatively clear skin, but around the time of my period it would get really bad. 

I am now on day 4 of my accutane treatment (20mg for 1st 2 weeks, 40mg starting after that). As far as side effects, I haven't really been noticing anything different yet. 

Wish me luck!
