My exprience with accutane, start to finish

Entries in this blog


T-minus 10 days.

I begin my first ever course of accutane (or probably a generic substitute) in one week from Wednesday. I've read everything under the sun about what to expect, and have found that real people's online journals/blogs of their experiences have been most helpful. In attempts to return the favor and hopefully continue to get some good advice, I figured I'd write about my own experiences.

My acne falls under the "moderate but persistent" category". You name it, I've tried it. So, as a last result, I'm bringing out the big guns. The side effects make me a tad nervous, but when I look in the mirror some days, I am convinced that none of them are scary enough to tempt me out of an opportunity to get rid of my acne for good.

I'm plotting a trip to my nearest CVS to stock up on moisturizers and vitamin supplements...any advice from any veterans out there???
