  5. good luck man.. i am almost 2 months in 40mg the first and 60mg the second and i am breaking out bad as well too.. its funny cause my face is so dry but i still have pimples.. its like.. how can that be!!
  6. Hi ALl, Week 7 i think(Day 48) ITs been awhile since I have updated but I guess I have alot to report. I think i am on week 7 or so and i can say I am not too happy with my skin as of late. As from my last report, I was upped to 60mg. 40mg on odd days and 80 on even days. Since then my skin has been erupting with the worse being my forehead. I get a new one daily and they are big and red. I am also breaking out on my jawline, temples cheeks, etc etc. bascailly all over. They dry up quicly and
  7. Hey Carys Week 5 I think.. haha.. i am a few days behind you.. so i went to the monthly and my fat was up and also had some bumps on my liver test.. no good.. i know.. so she is putting me on 40mg-80mg alternating days which makes 60mg a day.. so far. i am dry as a mofo and lips look and feel like crap.. i am flaky as heck as well. as for breakouts.. i am still having them but not that bad.. i can manage i guess. otherwise just taning away and trying hard to stay away from the bottle!!!
  8. DAY 25 Things are progressing.. i think i am getting past the initial breakout which is a relief. It was definately hard to live with as I had pimples coming from every where. Right now I still have a few on my forehead but things seem to clear faster than normal and come to a head quicker as well. When they do come to a head they eventually just peel off without much pressure. I went to my one month checkup last week which i know is sooner than usually but she was booked and i had to get in. I
  9. Day 15 SO my Initial is coming in hard and it has me kinda down.. i am dry as heck but I have like 20 pimples on my face and the worse is my forehead. Eventhough they are not huge and inflamed they are pretty visible and kinda hurt.. I can not wait for this to be over with and passs..
  10. DAY 12 I think that is right.. so my initial is coming fast and hard.. i have about 7 zits on my forehead and they hurt.. this scuks.. i have one on my cheek which is fading and drying and like 5-7 more all over but are starting to fade and leave a mark. I am really not stressing as this was pretty much to be expected. I just hope to be over this soon and start to heal these wounds as for side effects, i would say the worst part right now is the lips. its is pretty annoying as i have to moist
