Just starting week 3 of Claravis 20mg twice a day. It's hard to believe it's been 3 weeks already!
Things haven't really changed that much in the last week. My blemishes are healing extremely quickly. Seems like they just dry right up overnight. My skin isn't producing any oil, which is soooo nice. I've always had such oily skin and I never realized how much better I could look when my skin isn't shiny! I'm very dry and peely still, but I don't mind because I don't have any new spots at all as of this morning, just a few that are healing from last week.
I used to have really bad breakouts along my jaw line of all places, but that is completely gone now, and I am extremely happy about that. Also, I was out in the sun all day with no sunscreen on July 4th, and I only got about as much sun as I would've if I wasn't on accutane, and even got some compliments on my nice tan. I had a headache creeping on as of yesterday, but I was proactive about it and took some painkiller and it didn't really bother me at all. My lips are sooo dry. They look like they are going to shrivel up and fall right off my face if I don't wear Aquaphor 24/7.
All in all, I'm very satisfied with my experience so far. I haven't had an initial breakout, and I already feel much more confident because my skin is so clear and smooth right now.
I have my bloodwork appointment later this week, and my derm appointment next week. Here's hoping my bloodwork comes back ok!!
