My accutane journey

Hey guys, im a newbie to this forum. Im 21 years old. Ive been struggling with acne since highschool. Ive tried proactive, murad, and most stuff that they sell in stores. That didnt work. :( Ive been on topicals and solodyn for about a year but it didnt clear me up to the point where i was satisfied. It did make a difference though. My dermatologist talked to me about accutane 4 months ago but i decided not to go with it because of the many side effects....well.... I finally decided to give it a try. Im on day 4. :dance: Nothing really happening so far. I look forward to hearing from all you guys. Goodluck to all who are starting. And congrats to all who got through their accutane journey. Live strong! Be happy! live ALOHA!

DAY 8 - Hey guys. still not seeing any difference yet. My lips have been getting dry. I bought some blistex. Seems to be working. My scalp feels pretty dry as well. My eyes feel irritated while im driving home from work at night. So i picked up some visine. Ive been feeling pretty tired these past days. Im not sure if it has something to do with this medication. I'll try and get some pictures up. "ONE LOVE"

Saline spray or ......get a cotton bud and put vaseline up there! It's a lovely experience, one you won't forget!!
