Today is my third week of being on Accutane. My skin is phenominal! It's no longer oily, my cheeks and forehead are smooth and my back is clearing up. I only have/get pimples along my chin/jaw, the borders of my cheeks (close to ears) and on my temples. But it's not even that bad. No cysts, just white heads. My nose feels rough, though, from black heads, which I find odd. But I'm not worried about it.
- sore back & hips
- dry face, hands & lips
- few nose bleeds
My back and hips actually tend to hurt pretty severly. It's usually when I wake up in the morning, after lying in the same position for hours, is when my back is extremely stiff and it takes a few minutes to get out of bed and straight my back. My hips get sore from walking around or standing all day (mostly happens at work, and especially after a run). Which is totally understandable, as that's commonly a result in someone who isn't taking the drug. But it's more pronounced now because I never had issues with either before.
Update: I won't be posting frequent pictures in my blog, and won't be doing a time lapse video. As much as I want to, I can't. My computer doesn't take my USB for my camera for some reason. I can't hold 6 months of pictures on it lol, so I've just decided to post pictures from before and after my trial.
