I'm 80 kg.....
Doctor gave me the option to start at 80 or start low. I wanted to jump right in and go at 80....but my mom freaked out and wanted 20 mg. She sorta just makes up her mind about things and sticks with it. She decided that this is a life long treatment and didn't' see the reason to use anything higher.....we tried to explain, but she wouldn't really listen.
We compromised on 60 mg, and that i'd just take 40 mg the first week and see if any serious side effects happened. If not, i'd go up to 60.
First day i had a euphoric feeling an hour after taking it....not sure if it was from the med or me feeling it kick in and being really happy i'm finally getting things underway. Took only 20 mg, then waited 4 hours....wanted to see if i was allergic, after nothing, i took the next 20.
Had worked out earlier that day and just remembered i needed to take a shower ( i don't sweat much).....there was a zit on my chest i didn't' know i had and it was burst open. This slightly scared me since i thought that was gonna happen with my face...i'd wake up and be a puss ball.
The next morning, had a few white heads.
The next few days i sorta broke out...i think this was my IB.....it was in all the areas the chemical peel didn't' really touch. Jaw line, upper cheek under eye, hair line, eye brows, and where the nose touches the face. They say the same thing about chemical peels, it sorta gets everything out and is worse at first. Maybe a couple more months of chemical peels was all i needed.
Had a huge one on my jaw and by the 4th day, i ran my finger across my jaw lightly and the entire sack popped right out...was completely dried out. Got a few on my back that got big and started to shrink by the end of the day.
Been using cetaphil and then either aquaphor or bio oil. Aquaphor is the only thing that works on my lips....my face isn't getting too dry, just my eyebrows are itchy.
It feels good, before i would HAVE to take a shower in the morning, entire body was greasy.....now i wake up and it feels like i just took a shower.
Also been lifting weights 3 days a week and no muscle pain.
My only side effect are reduced night vision and really chapped lips. I also smoke and it irritates my eyes and nose.
Today is day 8 and i was suppose to jump up to 60, but i had a headache....both mom and bro were sick and i do have a runny nose, and the headache is consistent with a cold, but i got paranoid it might be brain swelling, so i just held off.
Right now i have a few tiny ones on my nose and 1 large one by my ear that has been there for 2 months, otherwise i'm completely clear.
