My dose has been increased. I'm taking 40mg/80mg on alternating days. It's been a week so far on this new dosage. So far so good I guess. My eyes have been extra irritated this week. I feel like they are perpetually blood shot. I've also been feeling extra tired. Also I've had increased dryness and hyperpigmented patchy spots on the back of my hands. 0. 1% hydrocortisone ointment has helped a lot with that. Although I'm not digging the hyperpigmentation on my face, all in all it looks like progress is being made. Another thing is that I stopped taking the birth control pills. I'm not sexually active. Furthermore, since I'm stressing out my body with enough medications as it is I figured I'd just stop. That's all for now.
