    Day 3

    Well, on Monday I started Accutane. I am on 60mg, once a day. After the first month my dose will be adjusted to my weight...I am not sure how that works so if anyone has a chart or conversion method they use please let me know. Monday I was horribly sick at night. I took the Accutane with dinner, which was Chinese ( a rare occurrence). 5 hours later I could not stop vomiting. I believe it was the Chinese as I was fine yesterday with my meds. Side Effects: None really. My lips are al

  6. Call your derm and talk to him or a nurse. He should be able to tell you when things should start lookin up. You need support and they should be the first/best ones to gve it to you.

Its tooooo greasy to wear in the day but its ok for at night! Also, they have daily calming creme....which is gently and REALLY nice. LOVE IT! Right now I am still 10 days pre-accutane, so I put this on maybe 1-2x a week at night but my best friend has really dry skin and it works so good on him!

  9. Thanks! It is one of those things where for 2 years I have blamed my PCOS and hypothyroid...but now, blame doesn't matter, it doesn't get you anywhere. I have to push myself to the limit and not get frustrated as I have in the past.
  10. I am about to start my Accutance journey on the 30th! Acne is something I have been battling for about 12 years. It started around puberty and then only got worse. At 14 I was diagnosed with PCOS. PCOS only makes cystic acne more awful. My derm. has told me I will be on a six month course. I want to use this time to not only transform my skin, but also my body. I was an athlete in high school. PCOS did cause me to gain some weight but I lost it by cutting out added sugars and white flou
