  1. So, I remembered that I had this blog! I have been on accutane (absorbica) for 4 months now. I took a month break because I don't have insurance and my self pay program got canceled, and it took time for me to be approved for another one. But thankfully I have, and I am now starting month five! My dermatologist said this will most likely be my last month, but we might push it more. I am currently taking 40mg twice a day. I still have very dry skin, dry lips, dry nose (that's a new one) and s
  2. My dosage has been upped to 60 mg per day, so two 30 mg tablets each day! I'm super excited to up my dosage because I just want to get better as soon as possible! My skin is still dry and my lips still chapped, but other than that not really noticing any other side effects. Excited to see what 60 mg will bring! Not so many pimples are popping up as well, which is making me notice my scars a whole lot more. So that sucks, but hey, hopefully new ones will stop forming! Does anyone know good s
  3. Okay, so I'm now on day 15 and there are definite changes showing now!!! My lips are always chapped, which is annoying if I don't have a chapstick with me at all times.

  4. I probably won't update every day, but I figured I'd use this post to describe my skin since I didn't in my first post!

I came prepared though, I have a stash of what my research calls the best chap sticks! I also bought some moisturizer (cetaphil) which I've never really had to use before so it's new to me for my face to fee
  5. I followed your blog, can't wait to see your progress!! What products did you buy to help it?
  6. So, this is a late first post, starting on day six and all. I am taking 40mg once per day. Nonetheless, hello anyone who wants to follow me on this journey as well! Today is day six on accutane, and I don't really notice any differences in my skin at all. I know I was supposed to stop using my topicals that I was using before while on it, but until I notice any differences I'm going to keep using them or else my skin will break out like crazy. Last time I was off of them my acne got so bad which
