day 16

Past my 2 week mark on 40g/day of Accutane. Back pain still kills at night. I have to stay in upright posture 24/7 ... if I crouch or change back position it hurts :D

My skin is dry 24/7 no matter how much moisturizer I use... Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel? I like how it absorbs.. no thick textury feel like Cetaphil lotion or something.

My lips are Soooo comfy now with Burt's Bees :( - much much better than vaseline. They're hardly dry at all and I only have to apply maybe 3 times a day.

I think I am definitely showing signs of insomnia.. could not get to sleep for the past few nights. Maybe it's the heat? I lay watching infomercials until 5 in the morning... finally went to sleep and woke up at 7 to go swimming :S

    From the album:

    Path to clear skin?

    Hang in there. You adjust to the side effects. You'll figure out how to work around them. I know I did. It takes time but things will get easier & better.

    Thanks. I'm just hoping I don't get any of that loss of night vision ordeal... How much longer do you need to take Accutane?

    I'm into month 5 right now. My derm said I may do 6 months. We'll decide at my next appointment. She dropped my dose from 80 mgs a day to 60 mgs and my results have slowed a bit so I'd like to do the full 6 months.

    Ohh. wow. My derm hasn't said much about how long mine would be. Did you have noticeable results though?
