Just started Accutane

Recommended Posts

Well, some of you may remember me from when I posted with completely clear skin after using Botchla's regimen.

Let's say I am immune to that, and seven months later my acne has returned, despite my dermatologist's best efforts to squash it with all the antibiotics. So, she finally put me on Accutane. Right now my acne is moderate, but it hurts and I'm sick of not being able to control it at all. I'm the only one in my family with acne and it drives me insane. So hopefully Accutane will be the cure I'm looking for. I am also taking Vitamin E once daily. Other than that, nothing. No topicals, no creams or cleansers. All she told me to wash with was soap and water.

I haven't experienced any side effects yet, but with my luck, I will probably have quite a few of them. I'm expecting my skin to dry up within a couple of weeks.

Anyway, wish me luck. I took all the initiative to lose 55 pounds and get into shape, and my confidence is still being destroyed by acne. Hopefully this will be my saving grace. If anyone has any warnings or advice for me, feel free to post them!
