Today I started taking my first accutane capsule! :) I was put on 20mg every second day by my skin doctor for the 1st 2 weeks. And if I tolerate it well, I'm going to take 20mg every day. I'm a 15 year old female and has moderately severe acne. Tomorrow is Monday, and I'm pretty nervous because it's summer now and at school it's going to be really hot and sunny. So I might need to put heaps of sunscreen. Oh well :) So far no side effects as I'm gonna be taking one cap. Every 2nd day. I have seen lots of good reviews on YouTube and on here, and I hope I become one of those lucky people. Wish me luck! Haha :)

the redness have reduced a bit.
Wow, it's been like a month or two now or...
The redness have reduced a lot, and since I've mostly red acne marks, I have bumps scattered around my face, but they are drying out which is great. I still get the flare-ups here and there..
Stuff you may want to know!
For people who want to consider taking accutane: Good luck! If you're willing to take the risk (possible side effects) then go for it!
TIP! Never think negatively! Especially about the possible side effects.
:) I hope it works for you as it did for me!
She didn't put me on the pill.
I didn't take any I pledge program thingy.
I'll probably add some more info If I remember them!
Laser Dermatology in Box Hill. My derm Dr. Susan Robertson is really helpful. She gave me an "Accutane kit" containing lip balms, moisturisers, sunscreen, etc. Time spent with me is only 4 stars because she had to go overseas to study more. Other than that, she's great! Give her a call anytime and she'll answer in seconds.
