i've suffered from on and off gram-negative folliculitis for over two years (occurred during a minocycline antibiotic treatment) and have tried every other med in the book. finally, the derm said i had exhausted all the options and that accutane would be the best course of action to finally rid myself of this.

so i'm a 19yo male, 140lbs, now on my fourth day of 40mg 1xday claravis.

i decided to join and post here because i'm really worried (i've always had a history of anxiety) about the potential psychological side effects and need a place for support and encouragement... and to hopefully be able to do the same for others.

i'll try to get before pics up in a day or so, but i started friday evening and already the rate of new pustules has lessened. i've been in a sour mood since saturday afternoon, and i'm continually worrying it's from the drug (which probably is only feeding the sadness). i had thought, though, that it takes more time for depression and such to set in than 18hrs after the first dose, so i'm hoping it's me working myself up over it.

regardless, i'm looking forward to finally having the elusive clear/good skin i've tried so hard to get for years. :dance:
