  1. Day 40: My face had a couple pimples pop up the last couple days but they have both calmed down and my skin is starting to look much better according to my sister and father and it does look like its getting much better. Chest and back continue to get better, not too much to report! Just a side note that making out on accutane is so annoying lol, after a couple minutes my aquafor gets wiped off and my lips start chapping up so much! Side Effects: Dry lips Skin hasnt been dry except around mo
  2. Day 36: Skin is looking better, have a pimple on my forehead and my cheeks are looking better. My chest and back are clearing up still. Nothing much new to report, i got a ton of essays to get done! Side Effects: Dry skin Dry lips Back pain very minor
  3. Day 33: Quick update. My skin is doing quit alright! Got a pimple on my right cheek as well as a little one on my left. Chest and back still continue to clear up slowly I ended up spending last night at this one girl's house and my lips were soooooo dry in the morning it was so annoying! If I dont put aquafor on my lips every 2 hours my lips get mad dry. Also the blackheads on my nose have been coming out but now it looks funny cause of how visible my pores are. side effects Dry lips Dry ski
  4. Hey! Thanks for the post on my log, its nice to see people stop by! I was looking through your log and you actually do kinda talk like me haha. I was wondering if you happened to have any bad side effects apart from the usual dryness or feeling tired? I am more afraid of all that scary stuff people say about bad business happening with your hair, yikes! even though its supposed to go away if it does. Your skin seems to be doing great and responding well to accutane, come stop by my log when you
  5. Day 31: Just got my dosage upped to 80 mg a day for the next 4 months since my derm said that is best plan for putting acne in remission. Just got done popping my first 2 pills, but i will split it up for the next 4 months i just didnt have time today so i took them at the same time. BIG NOTE for all you drinkers - It could just be me but there was a mixup with my blood test and i had to get it done today when i wasnt expecting to do it and i actually had about 4 beers last night and my der
  6. Day 26: I goto my derm tomorrow to get my next dose for the second month. Im going to be bumped up to 60 or 80 from my 1st month of 40 and hopefully wont experience any different side effects. Maybe more drying but Im fine with that. My skin is currently the best its been since I have started. I have maybe 3 or 4 actives on my face all very little. My back and shoulders have still been clearing up fairly nicely. Side effects: dry lips durr skin feels barely dry minor back pain
  7. Also the blackheads on my nose have come out alot and my nose feels really bumpy, kinda funny feeling
  8. Hey Rockets, I actually have been drinking. I talked to a few other people who went on accutane a while ago and they told me how they drank as well but gave me tips. Basically I cut down from my normal 12+ drinks in a night to maybe 3 or 4 and I also make sure to drink a ton of water before going to bed. Going to college parties are just really difficult without having a beer or two. I know people mentioned breaking out after they drink but I haven't noticed that at all. Are you on it as well an
  9. Day 21: DAMN! It was creeping under my skin all yesterday and now I have one of those really red wide kind of pimple. It doesn't protrude much but it is mad wide and red and most likely visible to anyone within a 5 mile radius. Besides that everything else seems to be stable, not much better or worse which is fine because I know it usually takes about 3 months or so to start seeing the results! Acne: Big pimple on left cheek with a few other small ones a few pimples on right cheek some small
  10. Thank you both for the comments! I havn't come on the site in a while but I wanted to update just to let people know how the accutane is affecting me. Day 17: The last week or so has been fairly good skin wise, I just had a couple zits on my left cheek and forehead but my back and shoulders seem to be clearing up. Side Effects: Dry lips (Aquafor is boss) Dry skin after showers
  11. Day 8: Not a big change with acne, most of the actives over the past few days have calmed down a bit but there are still a large number of red spots on my cheeks. I also seem to be breaking out more on my Back than usual. Side effects: None except very minor fatigue, I feel lazier then normal when thinking of going to the gym but not even any dry skin/lips yet. Im guessing the low dose for my weight is a good explanation. Hope everyone else's accutane journey's are going well!
  12. Hey yvette! thanks for stopping by my log, im gona be checking up on you since we are so closely on the same path to finishing accutane at the same time. I am also really scared of an IB haha. good luck!
  13. Hey! I was on Finacea and minocycline as well for a few months before accutane but im more worried about an IB coming from going cold turkey with all the antibiotics and creams. I also have about 3 new actives since i've started tane, and one really nasty mother on my left jawline. Do you have a log going also?
  14. I first wanted to mention I weigh 160 lbs and am currently taking 40 mg a day for the first month Day 5: still no changes with side effect, nothing really apparent skin: Pimples that popped up a few days ago died down a little but I have been breaking on my neck which is pretty uncharacteristic. Im just afraid of when the IB is coming... as well as praying nothing will happen to my hair! haha
  15. Hey! I started on my accutane 4 days ago and am definitely going to be checkin up on your log and pre-empt and side effects since you have about a week or so on me haha. Good luck with your treatment and I hope both our logs are filled with only positive results!
