Hey guys, well, It is finally here. I start my first dosage of Accutane tomorrow. I guess I was just tired of taking stupid pills and puting on stupid creams, and not seeing any results. I have been doing them for 2 years now, and I was thinking, hmmmm....why do them if they don't work...... Anyways, today I went out and loaded up on all the neccesities, like aquaphor, blistex (like 6 kinds), pure aloe, bag balm, Cetaphil lotion, not to mention all the sample lotions and crap my derm gave me.....sheesh, it's a lot. I was just wondering if anyone had any other suggestions. Or tips on how and when to use these items. Especially the aloe. When and how should I use it? morning? night? all the time? Any tips would be great. Oh, and also, I came home today and cleared out ALL of my other skin crap and filled a big box with it. It was sure nice to rid myself of that A good feeling indeed. Well, I'm going to be bracing myself for the flare up, but the after that it's all downhill Wish me luck!!! I'll be checking in periodically to let you know how I'm doing

Re: FINALLY!!!!!!!!!

I'm taking 60mg a day. And my derm has me on it for the whole 5 months. She said that extra 5th month decreases the chance of it coming back by a WHOLE bunch. And that is definitely a good thing <IMG SRC=""> I think I will do the photo journal too, along with the regular weekly journal I am doing. It's a good idea.
