Well I'm back here writing another post because I find some strange sense of comfort just being on this website. I guess it's because I know that you're the only people that can possible understand what it's like to live with soul destroying acne.
I am meant to be doing an assignment but procrastinating here is a more favourable option right now!
I'm on Day 18 and the last three have been 30mgs (up from 20), I've had no difference at all thus far.
I just thought I'd mention that I take a biotin supplement in the morning with my 10mg dose; because I read that this helps to prevent the hair loss associated with Roaccuntane. So far so good.. no hair loss or thinning etc.. I hope to dear God that I don't lose my hair. I also take fish oil capsules at night with my 20mg dose because I figure it's a multi-beneficial fat to ingest to help the pills absorb properly.
My side effects have been extremely minimal so far.. Maybe the supplements are helping, maybe it's just luck or maybe it's just too soon to tell?
I'm also thinking of getting a zinc supplement to add to the mix but I've heard it can be toxic at high levels so I'm a bit wary of that. I also take alot of medication for major depression and am popping at least 10 pills a day now. Not the greatest way to be, but, I'm healthy in every other respect. I just pray that my organs don't get damaged throughout this 'tane course.
I really need to call my doc and get my blood results tomorrow. I keep putting it off.
Hope you're all doing ok wherever you are in the world.
