Hi cymbeline!

Good luck on your Accutane journey!... I read your post on abner's log about clogged pores. You said your sister had them too and they went away with Accutane? Did they just disappear with no problems or did they actually grow into larger pimples before the disappeared?

Anyway, keep us posted on your progress!

HI there!

Congrats on starting!!

Something to eat them with.. avocado...nuts... um... a cookie? hehe

I'm currently taking them with anything..because my schedule is crazy..

I try to make sure that there is at least some fat in there somewhere ;)

I carry a pill case with me now..so no matter where I go, I have the meds with me ready to pop them in.

Definitely start with the lotion and lots of water.. You're going to feel you mouth and lips dry up first. So prepare w/ Carmex or something..

I have Carmex stashed Everywhere!

My treatment was very textbook.. I got about every side effect.. so if you want to see what happens you know where to look. ;)

I love EUCERIN calming cream. It's been the best!

Good Luck and keep us posted! hehe

If you have ANY questions feel free to write or message me.

See u!! :dance:
