  1. Hey everyone, I have been completely MIA for like all of month two. I started month 3 two days ago. Month 2 was a struggle I was really broken out for most of it and super annoyed but it always seems to clear up and look fine when I go to my derm so she can't see any of the bad. I also get really red in the face. It doesn't seem like sunburn but who knows. Now I am up to 80mg a day and if symptoms get bad she wants me to go back to alternating 40mg and 80mg again. I am going to Sanibel Island fo

    Day 31-33

    PS if you're interested in Arbonne or samples let me know. I fell in love with their stuff so much I became a consultant so I can tell you all about everything. I actually might ditch my aquaphor for their lip treatment soon. Updates to come!

    Day 31-33

    So I thought I had been posting the last few days from my phone but turns out it wasn't working so I don't remember what all I said. Basically, I went to my derm and of course had account issues with ipledge. She kept me at 40mg kind of.... I am alternating taking 80mg (2 pills) and 40mg (1 pill) of Zenatane (so that switched too) she said alternating would help ease me into the symptoms. I am wondering if I will get a bad breakout from the upped dosage. She also said that if my lips crack or sk
  4. Sofia, I hope everything gets better for you on the new dosage! My hair is super dry too! And the inside of my nose. I saw my Derm today after the first month. I had a gap day where I didn't have a pill but oh well. She switched me from Amnesteem 40mg once a day to Zenatane 40mg alternating twice a day and once a day. Today I took 2 so 40mg and tomorrow I will take 1. She said this eases you into the symptoms so hopefully it goes over well! So I'm kind of on 80mg but not really? Haha

    Day??

    Today was weird not taking a pill. I see my dermatologist tomorrow! Hopefully I get my dosage bumped up and can get my prescription filled right away. I have some pretty big pimples right now but we shall see what my derm says.

    Day 30

    So I've definitely noticed some improvements in my first month. My skin feels much smoother where there isn't active acne. That also may be due to the fact that I've started using Arbonne products that are AMAZING (so great that I became a consultant for the 50 percent discount). I ordered a hydration mask for when my skin really starts to dry out and I can't wait to see how it works. I also think I washed my face too aggressively in the shower this morning because where I had a cluster of break

    Day 24

    Hi again, I'm back! So my hair is super duper dry and frizzy now. Thanks accutane. My nostrils are continually dry and crusty (totally gross, I know). I got my blood work done for my upcoming 1 month appointment. It is only 6 days away, how crazy is that. Time is flying. Also, I assumed I would have to do another urine test when I got my blood work done so while she was doing it I had to pee soon bad. Still having breakouts all over my cheeks and jawline. Slight dryness is occurring on my nose a
  8. Krissy, I'm on amnesteem 40mg and have my first month appointment soon and am assuming I will be increased to 80. I've been having the same issues as you, so you aren't alone!

    Day 17

    Helllooooo, so my nose continues to be dry and a little bloody. My neti-pot is going to become my best friend so I don't look like a 22 year old that still picks their nose. My scalp is already drying out. I'm blonde and I used to barely get away with going 24 hours without washing my hair cause the greasiness would turn me into a brunette but today I actually had to question when the last time I washed it was because it still hasn't gotten greasy! I've been tired/lazy lately but I don't really

    Day 15 and 16

    So everyday around 12-1pm my cheeks get really red. Does this happen to anyone else? I haven't had any majorly huge, painful breakouts in the past two days which is great! I'm still picking a little which is not so great. My skin is finally noticeably less oily, yet not excessively dry. My lips are okay, but I feel like that is mainly because I am trying my best to stay on top of them with chapstick. I have been really tired and my eyes/contacts have been dry but that may be because I'm not gett
  11. Yay for everyone's progress so far! I'm finally starting to notice some dryness (mainly nose and chin) on day 16! I'm hoping for a dosage increase next month as well! It's crazy how fast the time seems to go once you finally start the medicine.

    Day 13 and 14

    So definitely noticing some dryness and my nose has been a little bloody. Lips are gradually getting a little more dry too. But overall the last couple days have been okay. Still getting breakouts daily.

    Day 12

    Stress levels are crazy, gotta love parents. Anyways, I went to Sam's Club and stocked up on Cetaphil products (yay for that). My nose bled a little when I blew it this morning. I work outside in the freezing cold and its always running. My face is still red but not too dry. Other than that nothing to report.

    Day 11

    Hey! Hope everyone has had a good day! I woke up in a pretty good mood and then went to work (I'm a dog trainer) and within 5 minutes a dog decided to pee on my legs...so that was fun. ANYWAYS, today has been good. My skin is noticeably dryer and WAY more red. Does anyone know what works well for this? I don't typically wear makeup unless its for a special occasion. My cheeks are getting really red mid-day. Lips are good so far and my eyes haven't been as noticeably dry anymore so thats great! I

    Day 10

    So I work really early in the morning until noon then typically have an hour or so before my next job and today I had the afternoon off. After lunch (taking my pill) I was so tired and took a nap. I feel like I woke up with two nasty/painful pimples. One under my nose (ouch) and another on my chin. My face/cheeks are also pretty red today so I don't know if thats from the little sun I got yesterday or just my face being red like it likes to do. No excessive dryness to report yet.
