My Accutane Log so far, please comment

Day 1,

I got the Accutane pills at the pharmacy and I'm gonna take them for the first time tonight!

Day 2,

So It's day one of my Accutane, actually Day 2 eusa_liar.gif . Last night I took the Accutane (amnesteem) pills, and havent really noticed anything different- no side effects or anything. So far, I'm excited-it's probably gonna take a while, but I'm excited- I think in the end it will work out, so good luck to me I guess

Day 3,

Well, it's day 3 of Accutane, I took my pills about 30 minutes ago. I woke up with two pretty big breakouts, so I guess the Initial breakout is beginning. I have a big cyst-like thing near my mouth, and a huge withead on my forehead too. I think this first month's gonna be a little tough, but i'll get through it, and hopefully start improving.

Day 4,

Well its around 11 30 at night here, and i took my pills about 3 hours ago. The 2 huge ininital breakout blemishes are slowly fading away, the cyst is now just a large flat red mark that doesnt ooze any liquid out anymore(thankgod), and the whitehead is pretty much gone. Other than that nothing really new, I'm going on vacation for about a week and a half, but I'm gonna keep a journal up there, since I'll be away from any computers. Bacically my regimen for accutane is as follows:

Morning: Purpose Gentle Cleasing Bar Soap

Cetaphil Daily Facial Mousturizer SPF 15

Chapstick Lip Mosutrizer

Evening: 3 20mg Accutane pills immeaditaley after dinner

Purpose Gentle Cleasing Bar Soap

Carmex Lip Balm before bed

that's all for now. Any comments would be appreciated biggrin.gif

I would take one pill in hte morning with a meal and the other two at night with a meal. Two daily doses is recommended by the manufacturer. Many doctors ignore this advice. Drink a lot of water and chapstick is not going to cut it for your lips. I recommend Dr. Dans' Cortibalm.
