    Day 38

    Ugh - My dosage is getting increased today and I'm scared of the dryness and flaking :s I'm only going up to 40mgs, though, so fingers crossed it won't be too bad - so far, at 20mgs, I really haven't had any negative side effects to speak of! Wish that could continue, but suspect it's too good to be true...

    Don't Feel Anything?

    I'm a month in, and also on 20mg/day, and also haven't really had any side effects yet. I'm 140lbs, how about you (dosage is often based on weight)? I think I'm getting increased to 40mg/day tomorrow and I'm kind of scared because it has been going so well, but I think it's been too good to be true :s Let's follow each other and see how things go

I wondered if it was just because I started using gentle cleansers

Some people made it seem like side effects would be immediate and severe, so I am relieved...but at the same time, I kind of wish I'd get some, so I would know it was working! After just 2-3 days, my mom commented that my skin looked better! But I think that's just because I've been moisturizing so well. Speaking of that, I might be overdoing it :s I was so afraid I'd just wake up one morning, totally red and flakey, that I started with the heav

    Day 1

    I never had a real problem with acne until I got pregnant. During my first pregnancy, I got lots of tiny bumps all over my face, that I of course attacked, making lots of redness - but those receded on their own after a few months, helped by Clindets pledgets. During my second pregnancy, I got some of the same, but not as bad as the first time, plus I knew to use Clindets from the start. I suffered from melasma with both pregnancies, too, but much worse the first time - likely because I didn't t
