FunkyPant's Accutane Log in Accutane (isotretinoin) logs Posted April 14, 2007 Here I am!Sorry I have been absent...my life has been CRAZY busy. Trying to finish up my masters and working. The plus side...I have had no time to mull over accutane and any side effects!I am now on Day....47, wowza! Only 53 to go!My side effects have become quite minimal and very bearable. I still have very chapped lips, peeling/dry nose area and I get a fair number of nasty headaches. Then there is the happy stuff! My skin is the best it has EVER been. I no longer break out at all, and my blackheads are dying slow deaths!! I hardly have to wear makeup any more, just a little to cover some red marks and scarring I still have. My derm is really pleased with the results and said I can end my treatment earlier if I want to. I am deciding, however to stick it through until June and get the full dose....I never want the acne to come back again. I am appreciative of every second I have with clear skin, I just can't get over it. It is so unreal to me to be able to wake up and go to the gym without worrying about my face. It seems too good to be true. I am so happy that I made the decision to go on accutane, and can't believe it took me so long to take the plunge. Barb-sounds like you are doing well, I just read your updates. Way to go!
