Starting A Course Soon

I will soon be starting a course of aknenormin (Isotretinoinum). I will be taking 10 mg every other day (so 5 mg a day) for 2 months. I have very little acne left and the drug is supposed to kill it off. The doctor said that such a small dose will not give me side effects. She also perscribed me a drug that is supposed to protect my liver from it and I'm supposed to take it together with the drug (also every other day). The medication seems to have fewer side effects than accutane but I'm still a little worried about going on it. I asked about things like if I can wax etc, and she said 'yes you can do everything!' but... can I really? I think I will still refrain from doing anything with my skin... I know there have been zillions of posts like mine but I could really use some encouragement or advice... I'm getting my blood tests results on Monday so I will be starting the course quite soon, maybe Tuesday-Wednesday. I'm a little freaked out right now but I'm trying to be optimistic too.

Thanks for reading :)
