Journey of my LIFE

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.... :) .... I made a topic under "Personal regimen logs" .... for my Accutane "Log"

But I just found out that there is a Accuntine Log for people who are on Accutine...So I found out it is

better for me to post everything here .. so kindly any BIG op for this site can deleate the one under "Personal regimen Logd" for me THANKS

ok here goes

My Log for Regimon:

December 19th, 2005

Hi guys..before starting anything..I just want to let you guys..know something..I been dealing

with acne for 4 years..now...I am 19 right now....finally after giving me tons of medication for acne...the doctor suggested acctune for me..I guesss he decided that after seeing my face last time ...

There were 2 barriers that first prevented me from thking it....

#1) My mom strongly said no to "accutine".... Allt he side effects...I guess she felt it is good for me after seeing a big one on my nose...Anyone here knows about Rodulf the Red Nose Raindeer well just like him I have one on my face ....

#2) I did not want to start Accutine since I had like 2 weeks left for Christmas Break..so I did not want to go through the first reaction during the school time...

The doctor Put me on 10mg per 2 caps a day....

I just swollowed my first 2 pills and so far nothing is happening to me other then just 2 or 3 zits on my face (new once)... So I am hoping to have a good result by the end of my treatement.....

---------------------------------------------------------

Log: December 22, 2005

Three days has been passed so far......Some new once came on my forhead (very little once) .... and

so far on my cheek it is "drying" out ....No side effects other then "Dry Lip"....

---------------------------------------------------------

Log: December 23rd and 24th

Ok guys... 6 days has been passed so far...... Dam I got job today..Stupid Night Shift..

Well so far I got some new once on my neck..they are little bigger then the once I got before .... little bit red too ....On my face I got some new once also ... but I could see some old once dissapering....It is MUCH better then last month I checked my face...Also the one BIG one on my nose it still there .... Damn...but I hope It dissappear soon .....

Also for my treatement... I am using these two cream to help my accutine..I just want to know If I am on the right path...so can someone tell me if this is good enough for me with the accutine????

Morning: I use warm water on my face....

Lunch: Warm Water

Night: I use before going to sleep... "Benzac W" I use this on my face and then resn my face with warm water and then I dry my face and then put his cream "Glaxal Base"

-------------------------------------------------------------

Log: December 25 and for 26, 2005

Hi guys.....Here is my log for these two days

December 25: Yesterday ... as usual dry lips and a little bit of heache( I dont know if it was the medication that caused it or not)... I also can see some new once ready to pop out..... I am just watching some movies and chillin nothing so far to fear for...No side effects.....

December 26th: Today When I woke up I had like 5 new zit popped up....on my neck and on my face ... but its alright they are better then the one I have on my nose .....I just drank like 10 cups of water for the last 2 hours ....... I feel all good......

I have an another question?

I still have oily face????? is that something normal or something wrong???cause I thought the meciation dries up my face....????

Hey Suje, that's great that you haven't really experienced a big breakout!! :clap: Were you using antibiotics or a topical retinoid(like retin a) before you started Accutane. I'm hoping I don't get too bad of a breakout consindering the fact that I was on both antibiotics and tazorac for at least 8 months before I started Accutane. I haven't been getting any stomach pains as of yet. Maybe you should check with your derm about that one. Good luck!

Hey guys.... today is my last day for my first month in tane ....

I will write an overview of the first month:

Ok guys ...... The first month ... I was very scared that I am going to get a BIG break out and my skin is going to change it to something else :shifty: .... like everyone else who are taking it for the first time....I was very scared what's going to happen....Everyday waking up and seeeing myself in mirror...if ther is any change in my face :) ..... But to tell you guys the truth..I am looking as normal as before. I did not put any speacial cream for my face..just three times a day a nice warm water face wash .... daily bath :)

Some of the side affects I had:

- Little bit headche

- Little bit stomach pain

- Little bit of dryness on my face

- Mood distrubance (swings)

- Thinking nagative about yourself (watch out for this little bugger)

Things to look for:

- Mood Swings (Which are very big importans)..which leads to thinking something bad about yourt self....which I had couple of times....which is kind easy to control....

I am going to 40mg/per day from tomorrow on guys..WISH ME LUCK..
