it has been 2 weeks now and im seeing awesome results. my face is starting to clear up especially by my cheeks where i broke out the most, but now im getting little break outs on my chin but over all im really happy with the results. for everyone who has been wondering if they can drink on accutane, here is your answer. i drank friday and sat and smoked on friday and i was fine. i know there are rumors that u get drunker faster but u really dont. i felt fine i didnt have a horrible hang over the next day, actually i didnt have a hang over at all i was fine. i did drink moderetly i didnt pound down beers and take a million shots. i had mixed drinks and beer and i was fine. just be careful drinking on accutane because it really can screw up ur liver. i am one person and everyones bodies are different but thats how my reaction was and thats how i was. overall, no other side affects, no dryness yet except my feet and my pimples are starting to scab over. i hope this blog helps anyone that is wanting to go on accutane or is just starting. c u next time!

Starting Accutane

I have been struggling with acne since my sophmore year in high school and i have tried everything possible that you can name. I've done laser treatments, retina micro, benzaclin, proactiv, the clean and clear advantage acne control kit, minocyclin, everything. I'm now a senior in high school was sooo annoyed of having to deal with my breakouts. i would cry because they were so bad, but it didnt affect me in a way socially, i still did everything i wanted to and didnt let acne bring me down. ive never had any social problems and my acne wasnt that bad, but it was really bad for me. i finally started accutane and im liking the results so far. ive been on it for about a week and i havent really experienced a lot of side affects. i dont have a lot of dryness except my legs and arms and my lips are starting to get there. my face broke out the 2nd day of starting it and oh man was it horrible !!! but i know it will all be worth it in the end. im starting to get the back pains but thats about it. the dryness isnt bad yet and im not having any depression or anything thank god!! i hope i can go the whole treatment without having the emotional problems. im on 20 mg and i take 3 pills a day. ya its a lot but my doc will prob lower the amount as the treatment goes on. im going to blog about my process and i can give pictures if anyone wants to see. im going to post my journey especially for people that are struggling like me and need to know how accutane is. even though it is different for everyone, i really want to help anyone out who needs it!! :)
