Hi guys,

After numerous failed attempts to get rid of my moderate acne on my back, using acne creams and antibiotics. I'm finally on Accutane. Here is a time-line of my accutane experience so far.

======================

ACCUTANE

So it's my 8th day today. The acne on my back has gotten worse as it's supposed to. The good thing is that the pimples on my chest and stomach have nearly cleared.

Day 24

-----------------

Didn't think the condition of my back would improve so much. 50% of my back pimples have gone.

Alot of tiny red pimples on my cheast and stomach now.

SIDE EFFECTS

=========

Dry lips in the morning

Dry back

DAY 40

-----------------

I just noticed that the pores on my nose have completely cleared. I had pores on my nose for years. They were'nt really noticable unless u look real close. So now my nose is really smooth and shiny. This shows that accutane is doing its job thus far.

The acne on my chest and stomach have cleared a little more.

My back has also cleared a little, but there is still a long way to go.

Side Effects

Dry lips

NO hair loss

NO depression

======================

DAY 45

-----------------

The acne on my chest and stomach is nearly cleared.

There are no new pimples coming up.

My skin overall is feeling alot more smoother and vibrant.

Side Effects

Lips are getting more dry

NO hair loss

NO depression

DAY 57

-----------------

There are still no new pimples coming up.

The condition has improved a little more.

There are alot of brown marks(scars) and some red marks from previous pimples( No, they didn't just appear. I thought I should mention it.

Note: Since it gets a bit harder to count the number of days i had been using Accutane, i use an automatic date calculation, which calculates the days from 2 dates. The site is here:
