  1. Month 5 (!): Day 24 Y'all. I'm so very sorry for not updating this log. I've been having a rough few months..So rough that I had to defer my internships and graduation. No need to get into specifics, but I will say this: There are many warnings out there about accutane and depression. I have a history of depression and with all of the things that have been going on with me and my personal life, depression was not an issue. Accutane does not cause depression. Acne, avoidance, lowered self-est
  2. Month 3: Day 15 (?) I've recently taken all of my remaining pills from their packaging and put them in a small pill bottle (covered in foil) because that dang Claravis packaging was beginning to be the bane of my existence. So...It's going to get harder to keep track of my days.. Might switch to weeks. Well, you guys... I don't really have a major update. SHOCKER! (read:sarcasm). The breakouts that started when I was bumped up are calming down pretty nicely. I really want to be bump
  3. Thank you! Yeah, I think this is going to be my week of giving it up. I don't want to. But I'm thinking that using the Clarisonic may very well be the reason why my clogged pores won't go away, so I'll use this week to see if there's a difference.
  4. I have completely neglected this blog. I am so sorry for that. I will start back soon. Until then, here is the link to my current accutane log: I hope everyone is doing well! -Whitney
  5. Your skin is looking so much better. I'm glad the 80mg is working well for you. Now that you're done with the increases in dosage, it should be smoooth sailing from here! Hooray!!
  6. Month 3: Day 8 Pictures as promised: http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/BE93D085-8174-4E99-976D-32C03CD7D878-1636-0000012CA67C1E1C_zps3bb70cef.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/EDBBB2AF-AFE6-4C94-A311-CF9D1165FF59-1636-0000012CC4067CE5_zps58f098e3.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/00232C29-7255-41FD-BFA0-93B4E46F3271-1636-0000012CCAA87E0F_zpsfeb1caf1.jpg Close up http://i1090.photobucket.com/al
  7. Month 3: Day 7 Sorry y'all. I don't have pictures to show, but I will post some tomorrow. I had a dermatologist appointment on September 10 and was bumped up to 60mg daily. After a week on the higher dosage, I'm experiencing breakouts. This was to be expected. I'm actually happy this is happening. I have a bunch of clogged pores that have not budged because I have been on a low (for me) dosage for two months. I'll post pics tomorrow. Nothing new really to post except that my lips are getting
  8. Ladies, I am having a dilemma that I'm sure has already been discussed on this platform, so forgive me. I am black with naturally dark lips that are considered normal/goes with my skin tone. I am on my second round of accutane. Last time, I did have a problem with pink lips..Not so much dry lips because I figured out how to keep them moisturized.. I really mean like pink lips that don't suite me. Sooo now I've just been bumped up to 60mg daily and this was the same dosage that triggered
  9. I agree! It's definitely a different experience the second time around! Thank you! MONTH 2: DAY 18 I always post the most flattering pictures.. http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/020A6C27-F2B1-4E31-8D2F-3D3E3B97581C-2089-000000F4E0444B55_zps7914882c.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/A2277239-3C62-4728-8AA2-6B87F5E4878D-2089-000000F4E8DDCE53_zps5aad3e64.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/8AF68E17-66E8-4BB7-8C
  10. Month 2: Day 6 Well, hello. http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/E19C7A2D-D517-4078-8EE9-20EBD727556E-3138-00000205D1A4C1D2.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/17D533D9-8F6C-4879-89DA-6F13AB7FC016-3138-00000205C812F0B7.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/434DDF08-9EAA-41C4-85CE-0C19480176E1-3138-00000205BC977174.jpg I feel like I've been neglecting this log. I will get back to updating once a week.
  11. Hey! I found myself at your log again to see how things were going for you. Did you go ahead and compete the course? Any update? I've recently started my second course and I was curious about the other folks who were on their courses at the same time as me. I hope all is well.
  12. Yeah Claravis and Amnesteen are pretty much the same thing and I used Claravis for my first round and this round and noticing differences with this course already. I'm thinking it's the second dose factor. I mean, this isn't the same skin as last time. The accutane definitely did something to my skin or changed it in some type of way ya know?
  13. Yes! I will definitely try the tub. I don't particularly love Cetaphil and I'm not very happy with the CeraVe right now either just because I think it was contributing to my breakouts. I'm a lot less oily this time though and I can actually see the decrease in oil production already with a 20mg dosage, so I know I will need something more moisturizing this times vs the last. Thanks for the suggestion. I too love the foaming cleanser. It's kinda perfection right? Weird right? I was trying to s
  14. Month 1: Day 14 First, let's start with pictures. http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/D3CD3ABE-A7C9-43EE-B189-F7B4204773A1-3563-000001696BA3E5E2.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/F5BA054B-4DBA-4F98-B207-1B72200E9436-3563-00000168D7896677.jpg http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i375/whitneyonaccutane/90D2436E-066F-4E18-B540-53A95CDB4A0B-3563-0000016882BE430A.jpg My face is soooooo itchy! My face looks horrible.. it's that kin
  15. Update I still have not started my course of accutane yet. I had my dermatologist appointment Monday and was put on 20mg for my first month. (I am 24 years old 115lbs) Did this to allow my body to acclimate to the meds before being bumped to a higher dosage. This is old news. We all know or heard this before. I had the prescription filled that same day but have decided not to start until this upcoming Monday. I'm doing this because last time I had a few problems getting appointments before 3
