Accutane beginning 1/10/2011

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just started accutane on monday, this is my first week with it and I am not feeling too many side effects.

I figured I would keep somesort of log just so I can tell on my progress. Hopefully one day this may help someone else, too.

To start, my lips have been dry because of the cold weather, and I'm wondering if it may partially be due to the medicine.. I'm not sure. It isn't constant, and not terrible- so I'm not concerned... yet.

I got sick last night, but that may be due to something i ate. I feel fine now, and for the first time in the past 4 days I got sleep last night. At least I feel like I got sleep last night.

My acne isn't getting any better, but the real reason I'm taking accutane is for HS, I've had it for 4 years now and this is the absolute last resort. I was reading that it doesn't help for HS, but it will benefit my acne too. I have just having one major problem area on my chin line, and i never ever get pimples there. I'm not doing anything different with my skincare, or anything like that so I'm not sure what thats about.

I've been having a lot of back pain, and like i said before serious lack of sleep and i think that's been because of my medicine. Otherwise, we'll have to wait and see...

Anyone have any recommendations for skin care/moisturizers? I'm still reading posts, so if there is already suggestions don't think I won't take them :)
