Week 1



Tuesday February 13, 2018.  Finished my first week of accutane.  Forgot to mention I am taking 40mg once daily and I am a ~130lb female.  Haven't really noticed any side effects yet.  My skin has been surprisingly oily to me.  I don't know if it's a reaction resisting the accutane or related to me ending my other acne treatments (BP, retinA, minocycline).  Or maybe i'm just overanalyzing it.  Hard to tell.  I also have been getting very itchy lately in random isolated spots.  I am taking preemptive measures to try to avoid side effects including generously using aquaphor on my lips and limiting the hours I have my contacts in.  As far as acne goes, I see no difference.  Not surprising since it's been barely a week.  It'd be great if the whole treatment goes this easily!
