First week on Accutane down.

Recommended Posts

Today marks my first week on this stuff. This is what I noticed so far:

* It's easier to put my contact lenses on.

* My lips are a bit dry. Not too bad though. The only thing I hate is when I put on 'Aquaphor' (some lip ointment my derm gave me) it is shiny and looks a bit like lipstick.

* Sometimes I wake up during the night and I am very thirsty. I drink a lot of water.. usually 3-4 liters a day so this is new to me. But I've been working out this week more than ever, so that might also play a part.

That's about it. Those are the only significant changes I've had since I started. I am taking 40MG (1 capsule) a day.

My face looks the same as a week ago. No breakouts, nothing negative. Skin feels as oily as before, if not more oily.

Oh and about my mental health: I've suffered from depression for years (it's not being treated, never got treated for it.) but ever since I started Accutane, I've been feeling better mentally.

Glad to hear you are feeling good. Also, good luck with your accutane course. I am in the first week of my third month. No clearing yet, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Keep us updated.
