  4. 1 MONTH, 1 WEEK Okay...so still having breakouts...i am not too happy...and i got this itchy rash all over my hands...anyone know what that is from?
  5. MONTH ONE OVER! Yesterday i had my 1 month follow up appointment with the dermatologist. She decided to keep me on the low dose of 40mg a day ...i was sad also..she told me i will have to be on it for 6 months!!! i was thinking 5 at most...so that agrivated me... as far as my skin goes...i have not wrote in a while...oil is still gone (which is great) however i have gotten 3 new pimples that are very noticable...one on my jaw bone...(that one is not healing!!) they are a pain and they are not
  6. Thanks Giselle...i hope they fade quickly...i am taking omega 3...maybe i should start taking 2 a day though...and i hope the georgeous skin is around the corner!!

  8. I'm a lot less oily too. I'm glad it is working so well for you - that is so so so awesome. I'm really tired and hungry all the time. And I have some joint aches. I'm surprised by that because I'm on a low dose which I didn't think would bother me. I'm 5'7, 127 lbs and didn't think I would have any side effects, but I"m still in a bit of IB mode and am constantly tired and hungry. I ate a MASSIVE pancake breakfast today and yesterday and because of the tane, I can't run the way I used to.
  9. DAY 20 Things are going excellent!!! i can't believe how amazing my skin is looking...when i have my makeup on it almost looks flawless...i have a couple small actives on my cheeks but that is all!! i officially noticed today the decrease in my oil production! it has been 8 hours and i have not had to touch up my makeup...ususally it takes only 30 min before i have to blot...i have extremely oily skin...prob why it took me a little longer than others to see improvement in the oil glands...well
  10. hey! glad to see things are looking good for u...i am at a standstill too...no new breakouts for a few days now...but no more improvement today from yesterday...but so far so good
  11. i would reccommend using an spf in the morning...followed by cereve then glominerals powder foundation...my skin is really dry right now and with the cream...no one even knows...i have been on sotret for about 3 weeks now and my skin looks amazing...i have gotten so many compliments and the dryness is controllable...i am on 40 mg a day. glominerals covers awsome...and stays all day! its about 39 dollars for the powder...professional only

  14. DAY 17 Today i noticed significant improvement in my skin. Still scars but not really many new pimples...i attached a photo of my chin...which is my problem area...and if things continue on this path my skin will look great by the end of my course! sorry for all of you who are still having problems with the initial breakout. I def think it helped that i was on doxycycline for a while before starting the tane. My skin is getting dryer...def in my chin...my lips are dry but manageable. i am jus
