    On To Month #2

    Hello! I have officially finished my first month of being on accutane! I had my 1 month appointment Friday but haven't been able to get my new prescription yet from my pharmacy so I'll have been off today (Monday) and tomorrow since I'll be at work and can't get it right away :/ Anyway, I have had a good first month considering. I have definitely had more breakouts but its not my acne at its worst thankfully. I'm guessing this is my IB stage in the process. The breakouts are in random places

    Day #13

    First of all I can't believe it's been 13 days since starting my accutane treatment. I lose track of time lately. Hopefully it stays that way! Anyway an update on my skin. My lips have been dry (not to the point of peeling or cracking or bleeding) but I literally can't go a moment of the day without anything on them. I haven't even tried lanolin yet because my aquaphor has worked so well! Lately my face has definitely been more dry to where it feels like it can't stretch well if that even ma

    Day #2

    Hello everyone! Even though it is day numero 2 of my accutane/claravis journey, I thought it'd be nice to give some feedback as to what happens throughout my time on the drug. Not only that, it'd also be nice not to be alone as I'm the only one I know who is on the medication or has taken it before. Not very fun when you see some of the possible side effects. Yuck! Anyway...a little about my never ending battle with these dreadful pimples. I am now 21 years old which now makes my time with a

    That's not too bad. It will be over before we know it!

    Day #5

    Well I'm on day 5 of my accutane journey. So far so good! <--- on a side note, anyone else think of peanut butter jelly time? Ok back to the topic at hand. Of course I'm sure there is plenty of dryness and zits coming my way soon with the IB stage and all but I'm definitely not going to complain right now. I did notice this morning that I had a few really small red spots on my face that looked as if they might become zits but so far they haven't potruded from my face! Maybe some jojoba oil w

    My Roaccutane Journey Day 3

    I was the same about the anxiety! I would think "hmmm my leg is kinda sore...OH NO ITS THE ACCUTANE!" then had to remind myself that I wasn't even on it until the next day lol and I'm only a couple days ahead of you but have been using aquaphor which has been great for my lips if that helps at all

    Day #2

    Thank you for the encouragement and advice! Good luck to you as well!That is weird about you being the only one on it! I feel like it is SO uncommon but on here I feel like a lot more people are going through what I am. Being on month 2 have you had any major side effects at all? I'm definitely thinking about taking pictures (as much as I don't want to).

    No Makeup (Have You Tried This?) Selfconcious

    I have the same issue! You want to go without makeup for the sake of your skin but yet are self conscious about how you look without it! When my breakouts were really bad I would try it out but the same thing would happen to me usually it gets worse before getting better but in this instance it's hard to tell. For me I think being without makeup didn't help because I was acne prone period. Hopefully this does help you though everyone is different!
