My Accutane Log (17, male)

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

this is my first time trying accutane and im pretty nervous and excited. ive had acne for many years but was always able to deal with it because it wasnt awful, however this year it has become very bad and i consider it severe acne. im hoping accutane can help me beacuse the other stuff has not worked and im running out of options. im i my senior year in high school and ive become pretty self conscious every day with my skin and have lost most of my confidence. hopefully i can get it back and look great by the time summer and college comes around! :dance:

DAY 1

I actually just took my first does (60 mg) about an hour ago. i dont have any pictures right now but maybe ill put some up if i feel like it or someone asks. my skin is looking pretty bad, although better today than it has in about 2 weeks lol. hopefully the accutane works sooner rather than later although i know it'll be awhile until it helps and that ill have to suffer through the IB :wall:

no side effects so far since i just took it but im hoping the dryness of the skin and lips doesn't become too bad and that i dont get any headaches. haha i guess we will find out soon.

P.S. im very sad :cry: that i can't go to parties and drink anymore, although i probably will after my first month because im a HS senior and have nothing else to do!

ok sorry for the long post but i have alot on my mind. goodluck to everyone else in their quest for clear skin

Congratulations on starting your course. You are so young and should not be drinking as it is, so you might want to reconsider that. Not trying to harp on your or anything it would just suck for you to go into liver failure at such a young age. Drink lots of water instead of booze, water can be fun too :)

Plus since u have a blood test every month, they might see somethings up just guessing tho. Im 18 so a lot fo my friends drink, but i don't, i just go to the party's and have fun! its real fun to watch drunk ppl act all goofy too ahaha

dont worry lol i havent drank at all. today was day 5 i think. i got my first nosebleed while on accutane, although it started when i got elbowed in the face by accident while playing basketball. otherwise the side effects have been fine. my face is SLOWLY getting better although it still looks pretty bad. i think some of the redness is going away.

hope everyone else is happy with their skin, im out

unfortunately my face has gotten worse. all my progress has been ruined.

anyway it was so bad today i decided i couldn't go to school because i didnt want to be embarassed all day. the first thing i did was go to get gas, and of course at the gas station the guy I paid decided that he should give me a 10 minute speech on how to cure acne while my car was being filled. He said i must have a dirty intestine and thats why i have acne. he also said that if someone else pops a pimple for you, that their dirtiness will enter me as well. he even said if a girl pops a pimple for me and she is having her period that like some evil spirit will enter me or something.

i swear, you can't make this stuff up. so i left with a full tank and really pissed off that this random guy has the nerve to say all that to me, especially on a day where i skipped school because i was so self conscious.

god i hate acne
