Claravis 20 Mg - Day 1



Hello everyone!

I know most people won't read this, but I like having a journal to keep track of my very long and (hopefully) successful journey through accutane! I just took my first pill of 20 mg Claravis (generic accutane) nod.gif . If you wanna read my previous posts, I go into detail about my past history with acne and whatnot.

I wanted to know what to expect for the first couple of days and what I can do to prevent the awful side effects! I loaded up on blistex and aquaphor and I am washing my face with Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser and I have Avene Clean-AC moisturizer (it is meant specifically for people using accutane).

I'm wondering what you guys recommend for shampoo/conditioner/body lotion since I know basically everything gets completely dried out during this process!

Hope to hear from you soon :)

1 day down, 6 months to go.........


I've been using t-gel shampoo followed by aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner and nivea's body conditioner in the shower. Hope this helps :)

Thanks so much Danim!! I have tresemme moisture shampoo and conditioner right now. I'm gonna use those up before my skin gets too dry (hopefully!). Whats your accutane experience like so far? Are you on 20 mg also?
