Accutane | Week 1

Hello you. I have an update on my acne. I have just started to take Accutane, actually I am using the generic brand since that is what my health plan covered. It is called Clarus Isotretinoin. My dosage is take one 40mg capsule for 5 days a week taken with a substantial meal. The capsules are rather large and you're not allowed to crush them or chew on them. 

I haven't noticed anything abnormal. I have the beginnings of what seems to be a cold. Usually my nose starts to dry and crack and this has started occurring in addition to chapped lips and dehydration. Maybe it the cold or maybe its Accutane. We will find out in a couple weeks once I shake off this cold.

My acne is less inflamed on the cheeks and the pimples I had on my forehead are almost gone. I feel like this is a result on Diane 35. I do experience random cramps and tenderness up north which sucks.

I will keep you posted on how Accutane/Clarus is working out for me.
