  1. This whole time I was eagerly waiting to start month 4 because during my last round I took photos as often as I could remember and it w after month 3 that I noticed a definite improvement in my skin. And, I can say that has held true! I don’t have any major breakouts. I don’t still have quite a few very small unnoticeable comedones on my chin that I honestly don’t know if they’ll ever come to surface if I don’t aggravate them. I sort of want them out, tho. Is it worth the break out and potential
  2. *This week I mainly experienced more/new side effects rather than a change in my acne. Acne Results: Don't see much of an acne change from last week. I got one or two on my shoulders and another on my left cheek but nothing too bad. Side Effects: In addition to previous side effects I've mentioned, my scalp became super dry and I have dandruff like crazy. I didn't think I scratched my head that hard but i started bleeding (photo). The inside of my nose has become super dry and there is alwa

    Day 1

    I decided to start this blog because my acne has returned. Four years of clear beautiful skin after accutane here I am again. I wish I wasn't part of that 20% that relapses after taking 5 month of claravis . I started this long acne journey in 2011 after using proactive for years I stopped using it and hell broke loose. I saw my first dermatologist , he prescribed me Retin A at night , Bactrim once a day , and benzoyl peroxide wash in the morning. That worked pretty nice until I stopped taking
  4. So I just started day 3 of isotretinoin treatment and I did not expect the IB to start this soon! I've been taking 30 mg pills twice a day and haven't noticed any dry/sensitive skin yet, but I switched my daily cleanser to neutrogena soapless face wash just in case. At first I thought I was just getting a few pimples because I stopped using my clairisonic and salicylic acid cleanser, but today I noticed a bunch of small bumps coming to the surface all over my face, especially on my forehead. I a
  5. Well i'm stopping accutane for a while, probably for a week. I went to see the doctor yesterday and she said my blood results came up a bit high. My lips were fine then but after i went to play some sports and drank afterwards. Soon after i started to see little dots in my lips that burned. Today i realized they were COLD SORES! AGAIN! I HAVE NEVER GOTTEN COLD SORES IN MY LIFE, ONLY TIME WAS WHEN I WAS ON ACCUTANE THE FIRST TIME AND NOW!!!It's my fault. I have been careless about my lips, even
  6. 1st month: 60mg/ day My entire body is dry, my face is extremely dry, my lips too. I developed three giant pimples on my right cheeck. I am now just using regular facewash but gonna start using no facewash at all since it's drying up badly. I remember first time i didn't use any face moisturizer but i have to start now. Absolutely annoying during work, freaking lips too very dry; ive stopped using chapstick now using a more powerful cream and it's only month 1! I was thinking of stopping
  7. The problem being, of course, acne. Everyone on this site, whether daily contributor or lurker (I fall into the latter category) is all too familiar with this problem. We've been scarred, if not physically, then certainly emotionally. And at times, it can feel like we are alone in the problem, out in space, with no one around to sympathize with - especially when we look around and there seems to be perfect skin everywhere we look! I promise you, you are not alone. A few days ago, I blasted off i
  8. Today was my 1 month check up. My liver function was elevated since last time... that makes me a little nervous. They didn't really say too much about it and all I saw on the sheet was that it said +40 ? I still got my prescription for this month I'm just praying it isn't eleveated too much and I can continue to take this for the full 5 months. Today my derm gave me 6 shots of cortisone. 5 in some larger nodules and 1 in my lip? The corner of my lip is really cracked so she gave me a cortiso
  9. Hey! My dark spots are beginning to fade. They are still very noticeable, but I do see the improvement. I have two new pimples on my right cheek. A couple that are beginning to go away on my forehead and no active ones on my left cheek. I still have the same side effects, in addition to some new ones. My face and lips are still dry and my scalp is still itchy and flakey (although I got Selsun blue for flakey scalp, so hopefully that helps.) One of my new side effects is that I have a
  10. I am 5'5" and weigh approx 120lbs. My Dr. put me on 20 mg for the first month and plans to bump me up to 40mg the 2nd month. I took my first dose in the pm with dinner. I didn't really notice anything except for my mouth being a little dry. I moisturized my whole body with organic Shae Butter lotion and Jojoba Oil and put CeraVe on my face with drops of Jojoba as well. - I plan on continuing this routine until I feel a need to change. First Full Day - I went to Wal-Mart over my lunch h

    Intro

    Background: I am 33 years old and have been struggling with some form of acne for as long as I can remember. I have a family history of acne on both sides. My Mother's acne was a mild form and was cystic in nature, but well managed with birth control and antibiotics. She was/is beautiful and I really never noticed she had a problem. She said it finally subsided when she went through menopause. My Father is in his 60's and still has blackheads and enlarged pores on his nose and consistently

    Day 11

    Day 11, oddly enough my side effects seem to have improved rather than gotten worse? Has this happened to anyone else? This worries me. My dry eyes that were terrible just 2 days ago are now manageable, my dry nose is barely bothering me at all and my dry lips are mild compared to what they were 2 days ago. I know I should probably be extrememly happy but i'm more concerned that it isn't working as well? As far as acne goes I've gotten another little white head on my jaw line... nothing ma
  13. DAY 39: the cyst under my eye came back and he brought a friend! two cysts under my right eye and they're just there for all the world to see. one of them came to a head, but doesn't seem to be going down. theres about five zit things on my forehead. i guess im not done with the IB. wahhhhhh!!! i haven't washed my hair in almost two weeks! gross? its so dry and my hair isnt even oily!! surprisingly enough, it doesn't smell bad. TMI? anyway, here is what i have been experiencing: chapped lips
  14. From the album: My Claravis Journey.

    ok i haven't posted in a while, but here i am! It's day 75 today. My current dose is 70 mg a day, one 40 mg at night, one 30 mg in the morning. I also take B-complex vitamins. Most of the redness are acne scars. There are very little current pimples. I'm so satisfied with my results. It's only been a couple months and my acne is quickly saying its farewell. I wear a very thin layer of neutrogena shine control make up to cover up my acne scars and to protect my skin from the sun because it does h

    Day 19

    Still more whiteheads every day even got my first cyst on my chin since starting accutane. Today has been the first day where my face is flaky dry especially on my chin and inbetween my eyebrows. My lips sting when i don't put aquaphor on them often but still not bad. The only other side effect is still my back hurting especially when I workout.

    just more white heads while old ones fade
  17. Today ends month one on 20mg of claravis. My skin hit its worse around the 2-3 week mark, and now i get consistent white heads on my chin and painful cysts on my cheeks. I was lucky with my side effects only including dryness and back pain. My skin has a red tint to it that i know some users can get. I never had a problem with my mood, but of course when my skins bad i'm sadder. What will month two have in store for me?
  18. I am on my second week of Accutane (Claravis) I am taking 60 mg a day and I started having chest pains at times especially when I bend a certain way and lay on my chest. It feels tight and painful and there is almost pressure. When I breath in it almost feels tight and it hurts. It is not heartburn because I have had heartburn plenty of times. I was wondering if anyone else has or experienced this before?
  19. I have my derm appt. on the 24th October to pick up my prescriptions if you're in Toronto and take isotretinoin please PM me!! I have some questions and would greatly appreciate it!. Thanks
  20. I just finished my second month with amnesteem and now I'm with claravis and I am really really having trouble swallowing the claravis capsules since they are bigger than amnesteem. Is it okay to cut open the capsules and take the gel? Or maybe any tips on how to easily swallow a capsule?
  21. So I am in the middle of my second month and I have been managing my dry skin side effects pretty well until the past couple of day. My lips have gone beyond getting dry and cracking. They are now at the point where they have become raw. If there is any area with dry skin that peels off, it instantly starts to bleed. It's not the normal dry and crack kind of bleeding. I used to be able to peel the dead skin off without a problem and even exfoliate my lips but now if I do anything, they bleed.
  22. *Warning - I will not be shy about the side effects. Take it or leave it. 23 y/o Female. Just completed my first month on Accutane (Claravis) 40mg. First image is a "before" image. Week 1: Progress: 1 or 2 new pimples - shocked I was already seeing improvements. Side Effects: Dry Lips and hands, bright yellow urine, irregular bowel movements (no pain). Week 2: Progress: Less white heads but more blackheads on the nose and corner chin areas. Healing after picking at the skin SUCKS - forcing mys
