As superficial as it sounds considering all the other dire side effects, I am really scared about the possibility of hair loss and initial breakout. Even though I know hair loss and initial breakouts do not happen for everyone and are uncommon side effects,I have been taking precautions. Every night I have been taking my accutane with a fat enriched dinner along with Zinc, Vitamin C , and hair growth supplements. Aside from the supplements, I know taking accutane means you are signing up for chapped lips for the next few months, so I am applying Aquaphor like crazy around my mouth whenever I get the chance. In the mornings, I take Adderall 20 mg XR to help me concentrate in the day.
Day 9 - Clavaris 40 mg
I have to say I am feeling some of the side effects of Accutane. My lips are starting to bleed every now again because they are so dry. However, on the bright side, my lips are big and pouty.
Unfortunately, I also developed a weird scaly rash on my upper left side of my back. It covered a small area, but I noticed it when I was taking a shower. It suddenly appeared out of no where when I applied a body wash. From what I understand, it is contact dermatitis and it is nothing to worry about because I have sensitive skin due to the Accutane intake. The area is still bumpy but not as scaly and red as it was yesterday; definitely calming down .
Tonight I have noticed that the acne on my back is not active at all, but I feel like my back is itchy! On my face, I got two big zits, one on my temple and one on my chin. I don't know if it's from the accutane or from the fact that I just finished my period.Also, my knee joints feel stiff again.
