  1. hey, i finished my course of accutane on tuesday july 14th. is it okay to drink in excess now? ya ya i know its "never" okay to drink in excess. but its my birthday saturday and i want to make sure ive got the green light to get wasted.
  2. i took sotret for the first few months and i wasnt as dry as my doctor liked me to be and my acne wasnt making any improvements. she switched me over to the name brand accutane and my face cleared up pretty fast. im not sure whether time was the important factor or me switching to accutane but ive stuck with accutane and now im completely clear
  3. Day 165 i think woww i havent been on this in soo long!! sorry to whoever actually read this ive been really caught up in school and with my friends that i havent thought of updating this. my face is soooo clear compared to all of these past pictures i cant believe it! I still have a few small pimples but absolutely nothing compared to the last time i took pictures.

  6. Day 74 bah i havent written on this thing in days. its really cool being able to come back and physically see how my acne was 15 days ago because i feel like i havent been making any improvements. well, i have been! im still getting small pimples but they arent very bothersome. i think my body is just reacting very slowly to the medication. i havent noticed any mood shifts at all during my course. the most noticable side effect is dry eyes. i have them everyday and i always keep eye drops and b

  8. Day 59 Hey havent bothered to update this, the updates would be pointless. My acne is getting better, yes, but verrryyy slowly. I have less pimples but the redmarks are still there and i am still getting new pimples, but they are a lot smaller and less stubborn than the old ones. also, do not pick your pimples! i picked one cause it was right under my eye but all it did was spread and there was still a mark. ive had terrible stomach aches the past 2 days i dont know what it is from but i couldnt

  10. Day 48 hey thought i would update this. my skin isnt making any dramatic improvements. my initial breakout is healing pretty well, i am still getting new pimples though, mostly on my forehead. my back hurts when i work out. sort of a sharp pain, it feels like my spine is being depressed so im always resting it. joints arent doing the best but its not horrible by any standards. just living life trying not to pay attention to my acne or my side effects. all is well
  11. at the gym today, some guy came up to me and suggested that i take accutane. wierd.
  12. Day 44 hey sam its always cool to have people that i can relate to, thanks for sharing. last night i went to a huge "valentines" party, it was awesome and i ended up drinking i wasnt as drunk as i thought i should be so i just stopped drinking when i thought i had enough, probably around 6 cup fulls of beer. later on in the night i didnt feel drunk at all, just really awake lol. anyway today i woke up late, didnt have a hangover and ive been drinking a bunch of water and eating well just to g
  13. hey, im currently taking 60 mg of accutane a day in the form of 3 20mg pills. in the beginning of my treatment my doctor told me to take one pill morning and 2 pills evening. i often forget the evening pills, im always out doing stuff. im in my second month of the course and i asked my derm if i could just take all 3 pills at once in the morning. she said it would be fine, the only reason they spread the dosage is to get a more even distribution throughout my body. soo now im taking 3 pills ever
  14. Day 41 ya! i work at borders haha and i just learned that starbucks owns seattles best like 1 month ago. those jerks own everything. its still raining on and off where i am but i like it, its a good contrast to super sunny. snowboarding is sooo amazing i cant wait to go again, i think im going this sunday-monday but it might be hella crowded cause of presidents day weekend but i looove the snow soo much so i dont care. thanks for posting! last night i went out to party in santa clara and it mad
  15. hey man after reading this post and then the responses i have to say i feel like this post has been tainted by its responders. i think your answer to the question was without a doubt the most inspiring answer anyone ever could have given. sure there are worse things in the world besides acne. but the fact that your able to stand up for your concern is great. thanks a lot for this.
  16. Day 39 i think my skin looks better after shaving. i can still feel pimples underneath the skin. gotta go study
  17. Day 38 Hey monica thanks for checkin out my blog. i work at a bookstore and we get free seattles best coffee and i drink so much of it during my shift! it never really dehydrated me that much but now i get headaches and dry eyes if i dont drink a bunch of water after drinking coffee. kinda sucks but w/e today was like any other except it was amazing outside. it stopped raining and its been super clear all day. ive noticed my skins increased sensitivity to the sun, i gotta stay away! other than
  18. hey, its awesome to see that youre mood has improved with your acne. i hope everything works out for you in the future with football and college!
  19. Day 36 last night i got a lil buzzed before a hockey game it was a lot of fun and i didnt feel anything this morning except tired anyway my skin was pretty dry this morning. i gotta start drinking more water. nothing else has really changed, im still getting pimples
  20. yaa cold turkey is the way to go! its hard though going to parties and getting offered shots that i have to deny. hows everything going with you?

    1. Day 34 woo! go carmelle! haha just stick with it itll be all good. i think im gaining confidence just knowinng ill be clear eventually. i used to hate looking at myself because i didnt have any hope for my skin to clear but now i dooo! haha anyway i dont think my skin has been making much progress within these past few days but long term i know ill see results. im still getting new pimples but nothing like i got before. im positive my ib is over but i have pimple scabs on my face as proof of it.
    2. heyy dont flush your pills! haha a lot of people get an initial breakout. mine was pretty bad but ive been following accutane blogs for a while and i was reassured by the fact that most people recovered quickly from their breakout. im into my second month right now and i feel like my skin texture is better and even though i am still getting pimples, they arent anything like they used to be and disappear a lot faster. just hang in there!
    3. Day 31 went the doc today. she kept me on 60 mg a day but switched me to claravis... dunno why. anyway i asked her about the really dry rash thing on my arms and she just told me to put on moisturizing cream, not lotion (apparently lotion has alcohol in it which can irritate or dry skin but it okay for facial use). she also said i should start expecting results this month seeing as my acne is now mostly superficial and not the deep cystic stuff ive had before. im really excited!!!!!
