My Accutane log *COMPLETE* with photos and side effects

Recommended Posts

Hello People!

Right here is my *COMPLETE* accutane log, i thought it would be easier for me to post the log once i had finished the course.

DETAILS OF MY COURSE

I started the course on the 4th November 2010 and took my last lot of tablets a few days ago.

The derm thought it would be best to do a short course of a fairly high dose. Which is what i wanted id rather get the course over and done with as soon as possible on a high dose than drag it out over 6 months on a low dose.

I weigh around 90kg so i was on 80mg for 2 months then 80mg/100mg alternate days for the remaining 2 months.

A sub note that some people may be interested in, i was drinking (pretty heavily) every friday and saturday through this course and it didnt effect my bloods at all. Hang-overs were slightly worse though.

SIDE EFFECTS

Month 1

slight dry skin

itchy face/scalp

dry lips

flushing/red face

initial breakout started after about 2/3 weeks and lasted 2/3 weeks

slight depression

Month 2

Hand rash

dry skin

flushing/red face

dry lips

dry eyes

dreams

slight depression

a few noes bleeds

month 3

dry crusty noes

a few noes bleeds

month 4
