    Day 56

    Skin is still looking good. Just have blackheads and other small stuff coming to the surface but no major pimples or cysts. In fact I am pretty pleased with the way my skin is looking. Its nice to go out and not have to put a ton of cover up and foundation on. I am also feeling way better physically. I may have jumped to conclusions (which my husband says I always do) about accutane wearing down my body. The past few days I have had a ton of energy and I haven't had that many aches or pains

    Day 50

    Well my skin is looking good, the blackheads on my nose are still clearing out. I still have a ton of tiny little pimples under my skin on my chin and jawline. They are slowing coming to the surface. My body however is not as good, I am extremely tired all the time, I have absolutely no energy at all. I have now pulled something in my back for the 2nd time since starting accutane and I am extremely sore. I also think I may be getting sick again which would be the 2nd time since starting

    Day 45

    Its been a while since I have made an entry. 1 because I have been very busy and 2 there is really nothing to report. My skin has basically remained the same over the past 2 weeks. Some stuff comes out of some blackheads after I wash my face and wipe it with a towel. T here are still tons of little underground pimples but they are only noticable if you look real close. I havent been wearing foundation which is really nice especially since its been in the mid 80's here. I am hoping that my doc
  4. My back pain was more mid to upper back, it definitely was not my kidneys (I have had pain in the kidneys due to an infection and this definitely was not that or even in that area). I just went to the dr last week and my bloodwork came back perfect. In fact my trigylcerides were down from the month before when I wasnt on the accutane. I am a very healthy, in shape person hence why I decided along with my doctor to go on accutane to clear up my acne problem. I just wanted to thank you Biggs

    Day 32

    I walked out of my house without foundation on my face for the first time in years. It felt great, especially since its 85 degrees out. No new breakouts and everytime I wash my face more stuff comes out from all the blackheads on my nose. I still have lots of little under the surface pimples on my chin (which the dr told me will take the longest to clear) but you only notice them if you are real close. It also helps that I have a nice tan going on. Dont worry I put spf 30 on my face every d

    Day 29

    1 month down and 5 to go! Woohoo! I went to the Dr yesterday. My bloodwork came back great and he liked how my face is doing so I am continuing on 20mg 2x day. He said I should not expect any new breakouts, just blackheads and other clogged pores coming to the surface. He said this is the part that takes the longest. I have noticed in the past few days after I wash my face that alot of stuff coming out of the blackheads on my nose. (Sorry if this a little TMI) As for the rest of me,
  7. Thanks for the info. I have been drinking a ton of water and I take 1 pill in the morning and 1 in the evening. I havent tried fish oil, I will pick up some today. I have 2 small kids so I am constantly having to carry them so that isnt helping my back either, oh well hopefully it will work
  8. Hey anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with back pain on accutane? I am on my 3rd week and my back which isnt great to begin with is getting worse. By the end of each day my back is killing me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Day 23

    I went for my bloodwork this morning. I hope everything is ok, I wouldnt want to have to stop taking accutane. I guess every month I am going to have to go through a little bit of anxiety waiting to get the results. I go back to the Dr on monday. As far as my face goes, my forehead cleared up. I still have the one cyst on my left jawline that hasnt really changes much since I started over 3 weeks ago. I have noticed in the past few days that all of the million little clogged pores (blac

    Day 19

    Well I have all these tiny pimples on my chin. The almost look like whiteheads but under the surface. I wish they would all come up already. I have 2 cysts on my forehead now as well. Besides my forehead and chin the rest of my face is ok. I am only on 40mg a day, I am hoping that the Dr. ups my dosage when I go back to see him in a week and a half. I have no other side effects at this time except for dry/chapped lips and last night my skin was really itchy. Does anyone have any suggest

    dAY 16

    Well I think the IB is upon me. All these small pimples are popping up all over my face. My chin looks like a road map! LOL. I think every pore that has ever been clogged on my chin is now coming to the surface. The problem I have is I am a picker, I know, I know...its really bad for you but I just cant help myself! I am trying to have some self control but I have yet to learn it in my 32 years of existance. I am just hoping that this doesnt take that long to clear up. Besides that I

    Thanks I know not everyone gets the IB, I am hoping to be one of the lucky ones. So far I am at 13 days and I have not broken out yet. Good luck!

    Day 12

    I have dry, cracking, peeling lips. It is not a good look for me. LOL. I am applying aquafor and carmex nonstop but it just isnt helping. I also learned that I need to up the spf if I am going to be in direct sun (which living in south florida with a 3 year old is unavoidable). My nose is a little red from being in the sun on thursday. As for my face... no new pimples have appeared, just the ones that have been there seem to be shrinking. In fact today I didnt even wear foundation. With

    Day 8

    My lips are shriveling up. I keep applying carmex, aquafor and chapstick but they feel liked they are about to peel at any given moment. The rest of my face and body isnt that dry though. I keep applying lotion twice a day. I noticed I am getting some small pimples on my chin. It seems like things are starting to surface but they are very small and seem to clear up pretty quickly. Also the blackheads/clogged pores on my nose are purging themselves which is fantastic being i think they have
