It has been 11 days since I began my journey, and I suppose I am seeing a little improvement to the existing breakouts I had before I took the plunge. However, I continue to get new, little bumps occasionally which seem to go away quickly. As I have read in other blogs, and I feel the same way, these "little bumps" would probably amount to something more evil and grotesque had I not been on accutane, so I guess that's a way of looking at the glass as half full, eh?
Face and lips are extremely dry...I use Eucerin maybe twice daily and medicated chapstick all the time to keep things controlled...guess this is a daily routine I will grow to love.
Next, I have a few questions for you countless readers (if any at all.) One: Where did you get the impression that you can't drink at all? I specifically asked my derm if I could indulge in a weekend libation, and he said no problem, as long as I wasn't downing the pill with a beer. He was very nonchalant about the response, and it didn't seem to be an issue at all. I have read other blogs saying that their weekend life has been impacted by accutane, and I'm wondering why. Then again, I may get a blood test done next month just to find out the alcohol has doomed me!
Also, is there anyone else out there that was prescribed epiduo in ADDITION to accutane (claravis)? For some reason I feel like these two shouldn't mix. But thats just me.
More updates to come!
