    It's About Time...

    I've been a silent observer to this website for a very long time. So long in fact that I have already made the life-changing decision to begin an Isotretinoin treatment and am currently on my 47th day of treatment. Reading so many other blogs has inspired me to create my own, especially when I've experienced the difference it has made for me to read the commentary so many others have provided throughout their Iso journey. So even though they will probably never read this, thank you to all of the

    Day 20

    From the album: Zenatane Progress Photos

    20th dose at 40 mg, once a day. This was the start of my initial break out. Frustration levels were pretty high. Sorry for the weird screenshot on this one!

    Day 40

    From the album: Zenatane Progress Photos

    Day 40 at 40 mg twice a day. I was feeling the best about my skin so far at this point! I ran a 5k this day in the beautiful but extremely humid Charleston, SC this day which accounts for a good deal of that redness. Everything on my face was flattening down and my skin was feeling so smooth. Starting to feel like a turn around!
  4. was prescribed Isotretinoin finally for my moderate acne. with health insurance we only pay $10 every month for Zenatane 40mg. I'm 160 lbs so my dermatologist thinks taking 2 40mg pills a day should be good. Day 8 Finished my 1st week on accutane and i haven't experienced any serious side effects yet. The 1st four days my skin got oily. My lips aren't cracking or swollen yet, just have a dry feeling to it but i put on chapstick often. My face/body hasnt really dried/flaked yet. I play foo

    Day 10

    From the album: Zenatane Progress Photos

    This photo was taken on my 10th dose, 40 mg once a day. My face was getting pretty irritated and burn-y at this point. But my skin was already improving!!

    Day 65

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    Picture for reference. Going into my 3rd month and have been off of the meds for 6 days now due to pharmacy issues. Face has kinda calmed down and you can see my chest getting kinda bumpy but not red. That line of cystic/ pustular acne on the right side of chin has been with me for a WHILE now - can't remember how long but it's been at least a month if not the whole process.

    Accutane Treatment Week 4

    Acne Status: I went to the dermatologist today to check in, get my blood work done, and refill my prescription! I’ve been getting used to the dryness and occasional flare-ups and things are slowly but surely starting to clear! My dermatologist increased my dose of Accutane to 80 mg a day (Two 40mg capsules per day). Not sure how I feel about this, but hopefully it’s a good thing. My chest is SOOO clear right now it’s so nice feeling confident in my swimsuit! My back is getting better, but still

    Weeks 6 Through 7 (Almost 2 Month Mark)

    Hey guys! I'm so glad to be getting some feedback on this blog from you! I am more than willing to answer any and all questions you wanna ask me, so please never hesitate to leave comments! Anyways, I'm approaching my last week of month 2 and I'm starting to see some real results...hooray! After increasing my dosage to 60mg, I did experience another initial breakout which was a bit disheartening but totally normal. As of now, my forehead is a bit of a war zone again but below my eyebrows

    Post Accutane Update

    Hey everyone! It has been nearly a year since I have logged into acne.org because as of today...I am 100% CLEAR!! Hooray! I wanted to share a quick update to inspire any apprehensive acne sufferers to give Accutane a try if you have found yourself out of options and out of hope. I suffered from persistent, painful, cystic acne for 10 years and on that milestone year I decided to be brave and take the plunge into Accutane world. I was prescribed Zenatane 40mg then eventually my dosage was upped t

    Day 71 - 10 weeks in

    Greetings ladies and gentlemen, So, it’s been yet another week but it’s been pretty easy I guess. I was off of my accutane for 6 days. Why? Well I guess my insurance covers accutane but only under the name of “zenatane” so every time my derm writes the prescription for “accutane”, my insurance doesn't allow my pharmacy to fill it and phone calls have to be made and it takes forever. So, it was not filled until the night of my last day to pick it up when I was completely unavailable so calls to

    Story Time!! - CVS & Zenatane

    Two posts in one day?! WHat?! Yeup. 2 posts. 1 day. I just had a story (ok, more of a rant) that I wanted to share with you guys about CVS Pharmacy and Zenatane. So, if you're on accutane or isotretinoin, you probably... aren't on "accutane" or "isotretinoin." Instead, you're probably on something like "absorbica," "roaccutane," "claravis," or (like me) "zenatane." If you've been following my accutane journey, which is currently starting its 4th month, then you know all of the

    Day 98 - 14 weeks

    So it's been yet another week! If you're keeping up with my journey then you'll know that I recently went back to my 80mg a day. So far, it's worked fabulously. My skin has cleared up from my acne that I had before. There is still some there but not... a whole lot. My neck has majorly improved. I have some pictures in my album that aren't uploading at this exact moment but keep an eye out! Unfortunately, the paronychia has also returned. I've been trying to take my 2, 40mg pills as fa
  14. Day 6 on Zenatane 40mg a day (20mg morning and night): Skincare and makeup: CeraVe foaming facial cleanser (morning and night) DHC deep cleansing oil (to remove makeup) CeraVe moisturizing lotion (morning and night) Aquaphor (for lips) Tarte amazonian clay foundation NARS creamy concealer Update: Minimal symptoms / side effects No major breakouts - small pustules near both temples but smooth texture overall Eyes feel a little dry and tired Feeling more lethargic than usual (although did
  15. Hey guys! I used to go on this site quite frequently but over the years lost touch with the community. After battling cystic acne for the past 10 years I have finally taken the plunge and started Accutane. I created a new account to document my journey on a blog here. Anyway, I noticed there wasn't too much information out there on user's experiences of drinking and/or doing recreational drugs while taking Accutane. I know the warning is that you should not drink more than 2 alcoholic bevera

    Day 2

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    Nothing has really happened or changed at this point. This picture is just mostly for reference for a before/after for later. Mostly blackheads but some cystic bumps on my back. Few whiteheads.

    Day 39

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    So, based on the picture I posted yesterday, you can 100% see that my acne is getting worse more along my cheeks and forehead now though there are some heads popping up along the very bottom of my chin and jawline. Pictures on the Left are of the peeling (both of my face and lips) on a daily basis even after a good mask worth of moisturizing lotion. Pictures on the Right are of my face AFTER washing it with my Neutrogena Gentle Face Wash, exfoliating with just a towel while the skin is still

    Day 47

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    So... who knew ingrown toenails were a side effect of accutane?? Not me!! This is a cleaned up picture of it. Before, it had scabbed over and the top was crusty but the part closes to my skin was still soft, meaning that it was, at that time, open or had recently been open. ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO FIX THIS... please? It hurts

    3 Month Mark

    Hi readers, I apologize for not updating in awhile, but I hadn't had much change to write about until now. I just entered my 4th month on Zenatane and have noticed a few new things. First off, my skin is about 99% clear right now! Its a wonderful feeling to be able to just walk outside without any makeup on and feel confident. I have noticed some minor scaring and a few very tiny ice pick marks but I am trying not to be too concerned about them because I know isotretenoin can make scars more

    From the album: Accutane Journey (Zenatane)

    About 3 1/2 weeks in, wearing make up. Not much improvement but I don't have as much cysts as before. Skin is beginning to dry up more making it harder for my make up to not look so cake-y. I have my dermatologist appointment this week so hopefully he prescribes me something topical for my scarring and hyper pigmentation. Not bad for the first month.

    Here's a comparison from about my first month on accutane vs the last month. The picture on the right was right before my initial breakout and the one on the right was after a long day. Pretty happy that I no longer get cystic pimples. I still get very small whiteheads around my lip area but my derm prescribed me a topical cream which has been zapping them away.

    Day 65

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    Picture for reference. Going into my 3rd month and have been off of the meds for 6 days now due to pharmacy issues. Face has kinda calmed down and you can see my chest getting kinda bumpy but not red. That line of cystic/ pustular acne on the right side of chin has been with me for a WHILE now - can't remember how long but it's been at least a month if not the whole process. You can see my face is kinda red and it really is like that all the time. Luckily, make up covers it fine.
