JVU's Accutane Log! now with pic!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just registered on his forum to put down my log.

I have mild acne with tons of red blots/spots underneath my skin.. lots of red scarring..

Dermy gave me 40mg/day of accutane..

hope these redstuff goes away!

its 11:50PM should there be a certain time of me drinking it? im planning on drinking it everynight around this time before i go to sleep.

so this is pre day 1, bottoms up!

questions:

when is an appropriate time to drink it? morning or night?

is drinking it with milk okay?

does it get rid of the blackheads on my nose?

Day 1: i think i see minor redspots disappearing (probably just my mind telling me that)

woke up with a white head on my forehead in the morning.. i realized i have such a big open pore on my nose (blackhead)

Side Effects: none so far, as i drank it last night after a meal, i heard things going in my stomach, lotsa bubbling etc.

does accutane get rid of the blackheads on my nose or not.

round 2 in an hour!

Day 2: grew another small pimple on my upper lip, pimple on my left cheek never left yet..

Side Effects: lips are a tad dry, nothing major.. even licking lips would be fine..

Day 9: see my pores on my nose getting smaller.. chin stopped growing but is still big.. 3 big pimples total on left cheek none elsewhere.. no change really.. just the aftermath of yesterday after popping them (i cannot NOT pop them simply because i work in a retail clothing store in a high generated mall) cannot walk around with whiteheads.

Side Effects: still dry lips.. dehydration.. getting sore throat, doubt thats the case of accutane though.. and fatique.. upper back aches..

Hmm I havent had any time for this site so here goes with the updates

Day ? (just count the days of my last post): seems like my cheek freckles are getting lighter.. My chin is back to being big, its like a rollercoaster.. just a pimple on each cheek and thats all for me

Side Effects: very dry skin, i would wash my face and 2 mins later as everything dries, my face becomes like winter wonderland. i would have to wash my face again with water + scrub with towel and moisturize like crazy with my neutrogena sun lotion. other than that i have very few light headaches + very dry lips, i use my blistex about 20 times a day no exaggeration. my throats been hurting, i dont know if thats a sign of accutane. sun seems a bit hotter than usual..

Day 35: took about a 5 day break after the 30th day to the 31st day cause i was late on blood test.. i seem to be the same (i guess i dont really pay much attention anymore)

i practically just know accutane is gonna work so i just let it take its course now

Side effects: dont really get dry skin anymore, i still moisturize sometimes though.

i tan like crazy.. lips are still getting dry (even during 5 day break)

i feel weaker; less energy, weaker bones/joints
