Hi everyone i was finally prescribed to Claravis. i was expecting accutane, but for my understanding there is no difference in between them just the price lol. any way i started today so this is day one. i am on 40 MG once a day for now and well i took my pill after a big meal. well i never really understood if it was suposed to be before a meal, during a meal or after a meal so i took it after but please correct me if im wrong. any way i took the pill and about 5 min later i kinda felt dizzy idk is kind of hard to describe maybe it was just because i was nervous lol idk. i will keep you guys updated but for now this is it.

goodnight. (its night over here lol)

Peace. :dance:

It will work just have faith. The headaches should go away after a week or two of taking the meds. Make sure you have a good chapstick with you at all times. Your lips are going to get chapped like a mofugga. Drink lots and lots of water and absolutely no picking you face. Best of luck to you!!!!

I used Aquaphor but that can make your lips really shiny and most guys don't like that. Dans Cortibalm was made for Accutane users, I think you can google it and find out where to buy it. Natural Ice Cherry is also good because it has SPF 15 in it or good old Carmex will work too. Maybe use Aquaphor or petroleum jelly before going to bed (that way no one sees with shiny lips :) )

If acne is really bothering you then go for it but if you feel like you can live with acne dont take the risk. i decided to take the risk and listen to what my body tells me. so far nothing bad just dry lips and very tired. but to my feelings i feel like if youre well taken care of by a good dermatologist then you should be fine. but again is up to you to make a decision.

good luck. I'm going to see my GP (doctor) next week, although i'm still not sure if I will go through with it.

Day 5

today freking sucked i just canme back from school. my mom couldnt pick me up on time so started walking home. holy crap i almost died out there. it was cold as %$^*(&* and then i walked like 4 miles. 3 black guys were following me i think they wanbted to rob me or something which is weird cuz thats usually not a problem in my neighborhood. i coulnd even move my jaw cuz of how cold i was. my lips were very dry but my skin wasnt it was really cold tho. i think im getting sick lol. any way my skin looks the same. my skin seems to be quite oily lol not dry at all. quite dry lips. no major side effects a little tired and no IB yet i think. im hoping is not as bad. i heard that getting a really bad IB is a sign that the medicine is working. does that mean that if i dont get an IB my medicine isnt working?
