Accutane Experience Log.

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

After suffering acne through most of my adolescence i've now finally been put on Roaccutane. I tried with varied success Monocycline + Vitamin A gels, but nothing has really been able to have a lasting affect on my skin; something i've always been overly self conscious about.

Starting with a liberal dose of 20mg/day for the first month.

This is more for my own records but appreciate any comments/questions that come my way.

It beings! (Just swallowed my first pill).

DAY 10:

Unsurprisingly, I haven't been able to escape the infamous IB. Around the fifth day of taking the pills I woke up with painful whiteheads all around my nose/chin area. It's amazing the impact that any amount of acne can have on your self esteem. I almost missed my morning classes yesterday because I couldn't really stand to see anyone. I'm headstrong enough to persevere as I knew what I was signing up for but I think i'll try and stay fairly low-key until my breakouts become a bit more manageable.
