Day 131 (i think!)

Skin : A lot better but not great
Mood : alright - tired..constantly tired 
Dosage : 60mg a day 
Side effects : Lips are just ridic as is my back pain

WOA it’s been ages since i posted. So many things going on and I forgot all about it.  
I’ve got my final appointment next Thursday where i think they will finish the course.
They were going to take me off it last month but I asked to continue as I was still not overly happy with the results.

It was a big decision as this whole time has been a bit of a battle. Around 3 months ago my lower back starting aching to the point i couldn’t get out of bed and even when i did manage to i couldn’t walk properly. Had to force a bout 10 steps before it eased up. I didn’t think it was related at first and went for a couple of physio sessions. It didn’t help despite them being really thorough.
After reading online it is definitely these tablets 

I would have to reconsider going back on accutane in future, the back pain has been unreal along with lips from hell … plus i’m not overly happy with the results.  Yes my skin is clearer than it was but i still wouldn’t feel confident in summery tops/swim suits as still getting the odd biggies that stay for what feels like forever then leave marks when they go.  still getting little ones on my arms too  *sigh.

I just hope that it stays like this after it ends.  I have tried to find people who post a month or two after finishing their course of accutane without much luck. 

i’ll be sure to update either way!




Day 99

Skin : great! Still the odd beast though
Mood : alright!
Dosage : 60mg a day 
Side effects : Lips are just ridic and scalp is flaky as heck

I honestly can’t remember what normal lips are like. hah forever flakey, cracking, dry and sore.

nothing really to report - like i say above..still getting the odd whopper. Just worried that when I stop taking them it will all come back :’(

Managed to slice my fingers on the packet 2 times this week just to add to the fun.

Day 56

Skin : Bacne / Chest improving
Mood : alright!
Dosage : 60mg a day
Side effects : Lips are in a world of pain
Changes : Improved overall .. still getting the odd monster though


Wow its been a while! Everything has been going great to be honest no big problems or anything and I have managed to find my ‘moisturising dream team’. Like I haven’t been flakey in the slightest whilst on this routine so I can only highly recommend the following:

Cetaphil Cleanser : to remove makeup & also freshen in the morning after washing face (around £6)

Benecos Smooth Moments : Used before applying makeup in morn (around £7)

Cetraben Moisturiser : Used as my ‘night cream’   (£8 on prescription..but think its only usually a tenner if not)

My back and chest have been so so so good recently..just leaving the scars of bumps gone by .. not sure to give bio-oil a go.. just cant handle being greasy :( 
I have however, had the occasional biggie..like we’re talking complete ugly. Hoping that will cease soon though.

But for the love of god..please someone help me with lips!!
ive tried nivea hydro care, chap stick medicated lip balm, nivea lip butter, Vaseline, carex, all sorts of blistex but nothing works :( just wasting money daily haha.
