Week 9 - 20mg split dose and Dianne 35
So it's been 2 months since I've started on this journey. While I still have got a cyst every month, it is better than the multiple ones I was having every month. My complexion as a whole has improved and while I am still getting the occasional teeny tiny pimple, they are now often small enough or go away fast enough not to pick. The dry skin and lips is a constant battle, especially in this dry winter weather. The new products continue to help though. Other side effects are dry, tired eyes and fatigue. I did notice a dip in mood again recently but it went away quite fast and wasn't as severe as last time. And like I've stated before, I am not sure whether that is a combo of birth control, accutane and winter blues or what.  

If I get another cyst this month, I will be asking my doc to increase my dose to 30mg for the next month. I also plan on going off of Dianne 35 in Jan or Feb as my partners vasectomy will be tested as all good. I'm nervous about going off of it but I figure it's better to go off of it while on accutane than not.
