    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 117 Now that I'm a little over half way through month 4 i'm starting to get more side effects. I haven't had an appetite in weeks. I'm just never hungry anymore and have to force myself to eat. I've also been bruising a lot lately but I've always been that way, maybe i've just been more clumsy lately. As for my skin, it has looked wonderful lately. I did have one zit but it was one of those I saw coming for quite some time. It went away quickly. My skin is very dry and flakey on the d

    My Accutane Adventure

    I might post some pictures later down the road. Theres no spectacular progress to see right now. Day 109 Hard to believe I've been on accutane for over 100 days! With the new dosage I thankfully didnt have a new breakout. The other day I did have a zit under my nose and it freaked me out since I havent broken out it soon long. It turned green so I popped it, theres going to be a little scar there. That one zit stood out so much more since there weren't any others on my face, so I had no choice.

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 96 I've been moved to 40mg twice a day. I've broken out a little with each dosage change. Hopefully it wont happen this time. I actually havent taken any accutane in about 5 days. My appointments had to be a little further apart due to my derm being 2.5 hours away from where I go to school, then the pharmacy was out of stock so I had to wait a little longer than normal. I have noticed that my nose has started to get a little oily. The rest of my face is fine but hopefully that little

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 75 Now that I've been on this new dose for awhile, I've had a little breakout, nothing horrible though. But as of lately, my lips have been extremely chapped and dry. Way worse than before! I absolutely love how clear and smooth my forehead is though! I never knew I had so many freckles until things started clearing up.

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 65 Since nearly tripling my dosage, I had a minor break out, about 3 small whiteheads. Now my complexion is clearing up a lot. This happened when I first started accutane then following with a huge breakout that lasted well over a week. I'm praying and crossing my fingers that this doesn't happen again with the new dosage especially since I'm back at school and constantly around people. I'm still ecstatic that my makeup stays on all day, especially those long days where I have 7 hours

    Somewhere around day 58 Haven't had the time to update lately. My skin has been great, no new break outs and my lips are still chapped and pealing. Had my derm appointment the other day. I'll now be on 30mg of Claravis twice a day. Hopefully with the new dosage I'll continue to have positive results.

    My Accutane Adventure

    Thanks for your kind words! It took a lot for me to post pictures. Then i realized no one on this board knows me in person so that made me feel a little better! Day 48(?) I finally have some time to update. Noting big in these past few weeks. I have gotten a few nose bleeds, but I'm going to blame that on my allergy medicine. I started school last week. I woke up on my first day of classes to 2 new zits. I havent broken out since that really bad breakout and I was mad that it had to happen on my

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 37 Not much progress in the past week. I think I'm getting sick, maybe it's allergies. I had my first random nose bleed the other day and my lips are cracked and randomly bleed too. They just absorb anything out on them. I've also had a few cysts and a small breakout. I'm going back to school in 2 days. If just 1 person comments on my skin, I will be thrilled.

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 31 1 month down! Nothing new to report. I haven't broken out in over a week I just have the spots from the old breakout sitting there, hopefully they heal and clear soon. I absolutely love that my face is no longer oily. Before accutane I would wake up every morning and wipe puddles of oil off of my face. Now there is absolutely no oil and my make up actually stays on all day!

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 28 (i think) To put it simply: I love accutane. No more oily skin and things are starting to clear up. I still have some red spots from my bad breakout but things are looking so much better. Last night after washing my face, I noticed the blackheads on my nose were really dark. I did the bad thing and tried to push them out with my fingers....it ended up being a good thing. Each blackhead pushed out completely. It left visible holes all over my nose, but by morning they closed up. I am am

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 22 Looks like I'll be staying at 20mg for another month. My dermatologist said that if she bumped me up to 40mg she thinks i'll have another breakout even worse than the one I had last week. I'm hoping the 20mg isn't too few. With nearly all other prescriptions I've been on, my body has gotten used to the medication and its stopped being effective. Hopefully that won't be the case here.

    Thanks! I hope your improvement continues as well. Only my family and everyone who reads this know that I'm on Accutane. I'm looking forward to going back to school and seeing if anyone says anything! Im starting to have the same issue where scrubbing away the blackhead gunk is starting to irritate everything else. So i've left it all there for the time being, its just weird to feel when I wash my face. Day 19 (I think?) No major improvements from the last time I posted. My chin cleared up but t

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 14 Well this explosion of a breakout on my chin is starting to dry out, so hopefully thats the only big breakout I see. When they claimed that accutane "pushes out everything underneath", they really meant that! All of my blackheads are now prickly and I really need to scrub to get them smooth. Since I've been living states away from home this summer, I haven't seen any family or friends since I started treatment. Last night, I had a friend from school come to see me. He didn't actually

    My Accutane Adventure

    Day 11 I spoke too soon with my last post. My chin is breaking out like crazy, to the point where it actually hurts. My lips are still very sore and chapped and feel really uncomfotable. On the positive side, my large pores seem to be shrinking and appear less noticable. The deep scars I have from large cysts are also fading away, Overall my complexion seem much more clear, which makes red and inflamated breakout much more noticable.
