Starting The Taaaane

Hum... I'm not really red... Actually, my skin is drier and that's about it. It feels like it's not working on me. Or maybe things will change drastically in my 4th and last month? Who knows? I'm a little passed 3.5 months and still getting pimples almost every day. :( *sighhhhh I have to admit that the new acne is not as inflamed and disturbing as it used to be, it is now under control and way better than before, but I was expecting ''no more acne'' and not ''better acne''. We'll see.

Mary..we are tane twins minus the redness (added bonus for me..LOL)

My last BIG breakout was about 5/6 weeks ago

BUT I am also getting small red breakouts or blips daily

such a bummer..like u, relieved its not thw big bad nasty ones...and

they heal pretty quickly but i keep thinking tomorrow will be THE DAY these annoying pesky blips stop!!!

I also have peeling all of a sudden around past breakouts I havent spot treated in a while..really odd!

when did u start again?

I started this journey on 11/17

Holy &&$#$*)(

heres to a better tomorrow!

Hi Kim! I started on November 11th! Just 6 days before you! I'm also always thinking that the next day will be THE day and every next day I'm like ''oh, well, tomorrow then'' and here I am, many ''tomorrows'' later and still breaking out. :( I wouldn't mind it if I was sure that one day it will really be the end... now I'm just afraid all this has been for nothing.

Sorry to hear Mary

I havent gotten their yet where i dont feel like it will work..I just feel a little pissed that it has taking so long to WORK

I was hoping 3mnth mark would be my turning point but now I am looking ahead to the end of 4 mnths

I think..I hope it happens..matter of when and what I will be left with that bugs me!

When u decide to go on tane you hear 6mnth, and you dont realize just how long 6 mnths can feel (because i didnt go to 80mg actually on the 7 mnth plan now..yeeks)

another day another red mark..this one is so tiny and resembles a cut and looks like a cut (hurts but is totally flat)..but i dont think I cut myself?

no i know I didnt cut myself

now tane is playing mind games with me

My face is extra red today and burns a little ..ouch (staying at50mg though i know my Dr is going to say im breaking out because my dose isnt high enough..but im not buying it)

Happy monday all!

Lips are worst too. They are finally starting to crack... That's sad but that almost makes me happy, like its finally "working". Still bearable. Face is very dry and starts looking like a dry desert and it's burning after I wash it at night. One or two new ones on the right cheek. It's funny because the first place to break out was my forehead and it's been clear for more than a month now. Only flat slowly fading red marks. Still 39 days to go... I will decide if I try to go for an extra month when I'll have 10 days left...

Ok ok good luck everyone! I guess the end is near!! I hope they are the last ones we see on our faces!!!

I hear ya Mary

I think the redness on my face and the BURNING bothers me most

I have a slight burning all the time

I think that is a good plan to wait and decide....

I know how much we all want this shit over with..but one more mnth to possible ensure a crystal clear complexion for life (ok that might be a little much)

But might be worth it

im now on the 7 mnth plan

I'm staying on 50mg for now and might even go down to 40 for the last mnth im clear...

play by ear..just want to make sure to hit my cum. dose plus some

Kim

Okay, I hate to do this to you guys but FUCK THIS!

I'm done being positive and now transitioning into accepting the possibility of having chronic acne my whole life.

I got two more huge ass (not little white heads...HUGE ASS) zits on my face and they hurt like hell...I have one more month on this piece of shit medication and for some reason I really doubt that one month is going be oh so magical.

i tried to hang positive with you guys but the doubt is officially taking over......

Derp: we are at the exact same point. I completely abandoned the idea of having a clear skin one day. I'm so full of red marks and my skin is so dry and I'm still getting those suckers every day! Yesterday they were 3 new!!!!! Can you imagine ? I've been breaking out from day 1 to day 112!!!!! Just a little over 30 days to go and like you, I can't believe things will turn up magically. Arghhhhhhh!!

Mary, sorry to hear.. I know it's not a good feeling, I had a wedding last week that I knew about when I started tane and I remember thinking when I started "it's a long haul but at least I'll be clear by the wedding"....nope...not even close. Sighhh I see my derm on friday (I would see her in a week from friday usually but she's out town the whole next week so I'm seeing her a bit early), I wonder what she'll say going into my last month and a half.

Best of luck to us all!

It's funny I am currently at a

3 day conference for work and I remember thinking the same "I'd be clear by then". Nope!

Keep us updated after your appointment!

Hey Kim, thanks for checking up....

so it went pretty well. blood work was great, got my script and derm was once again super positive...she told me month 5 would be my last month and that I should expect improvement well after i stop. She said as follows "accutane IS a miracle drug and it WILL work, the fact that you're still breaking out is no indicator that it's not going to work...it will. I've seen people who don't show half of the improvement that you've shown at this point come back two months post-tane completely clear..trust me, if I thought you needed to go longer I would have no issue doing so, but I know how this medication works and I can see from the way you've responded so far that you will clear up".

It was a great pick-me-up and it was definitely comforting to hear that she's seen people who have only started to improve after their course...

May that be the case for all of us! (or sooner)

GOOD LUCK!
