Just another accutance blog

Recommended Posts

I've decided to start my accutane log - its actaully my 11th day on it.

A little back ground: I am 26 and usually get the odd pimple here and there. But about a year ago, it became quit severe.

After a visit to my derm, he gave me doxy for a few months which worked but the acne came back after being off it. Then he gave me mino for 2 months which didn't have an effect on me.

So now, he has put me on a low dosage accutane course, I took 20mg a day for the first 10 days and today he uped it to 30mg. Also with accutane he also told me to take it with arzithromycin to control a potential IB.

However, I think I am already starting to feel the IB, I got two hugh red pimples on my forehead and another 2 new ones on my jawline that really hurt and just developed over the afternoon.

I am feeling a little bit down, cause I wasn't really expecting such an IB, even with anti-biotics.

A few side effects I am feeling are dry lips and a dry scalp (its really itchy!)

I'll try to update every few days.
