Today is my first day on Accutane. I am very excited and very nervous about starting the medicine because of its acclaimed results and criticized side effects. I have been struggling with Acne since I was in middle school and I am now dealing with it as an adult. I always thought that it was an issue that would resolve itself after my teenage years. Instead of getting better it has only gotten worse. It never really bothered me when I was younger, however with my 24th birthday next week I am more than concerned. It is starting to take a major toll on my self esteem and confidence and I am more than ready to get rid of my acne no matter what I have to do. I am more than desperate when it comes to getting rid of my acne and I am willing to endure the serious side effects for five or six months if it means getting rid of my acne.
I don’t really know anyone on accutane so I figured I would start a blog to share experiences, gain encouragement, support, and share what is and is not normal and expected while on the medicine. I really hope all goes well! Wish me luck!!!!
