Better Late Than Never ~ 2nd Accutane Course in Accutane (isotretinoin) logs Posted July 22, 2008 Day 155 Well it's been a few months since I've posted anything. I'm doing well with the tane this time around. My derm bumped me up to 100mg this time. Seems to be working much better. I just finished month 5 and we decided to go one more month so I'm in the home stretch right now. The side effects haven't been bad at this high dose. By now I'm used to the dry skin and I don't really notice it anymore; still use chapstick all the time; wash my hair every couple days. My skin feels really thin and I think I bruise easy right now. The only BAD side effect kicked in this past month. I think my hair is starting to thin. I feel like I'm loosing more in the shower. They say it's temporary and is not a lasting effect. So unless it gets bad I'm sticking it out for one more month. What's a girl to do??! I'll have to see about getting a pic posted and update more now that I'm at the end of my course. Thanks for reading!!
