Day 1



I decided to start this blog because my acne has returned. Four years of clear beautiful skin after accutane here I am again. I wish I wasn't part of that 20% that relapses after taking 5 month of claravis . I started this long acne journey in 2011 after using proactive for years I stopped using it and hell broke loose. I saw my first dermatologist , he prescribed me Retin A  at night , Bactrim once a day , and benzoyl peroxide wash in the morning. That worked pretty nice until I stopped taking bactrim and my acne came back worse . After that I cant remember how many topicals and antibiotics I tried , wasted a lot of money and tears until in 2013 I finally decided I was already depressed enough that it didn't matter that accutane caused depression. And so I tried it and it worked . However, the side effects are truly as horrible as described by every other person here. The worst one for me is terrible anxiety and thats the reason I cant do a second round because I am still trying to cure myself from it . I am currently putting my hopes in aczone 7.5 at night and doryx once a day , cetaphil as my cleanser and ceracade as moistourizer hoping i can get at least decent skin so I dont have to stay at home embarrassed because of how my face looks.
