Dry eye nightmare!!! (slightly gross and graphic)

Oh boy… I’ve officially had my first VERY off-putting experience of Isotretinoin.
When I was in my dermatologist consultation, I was told that my eyes might feel a bit dry and irritated, so I should consider using eye drops if this happened. 578 more words


Roaccutane Journey - Not over yet!

The One with Isotretinoin

Yes, you read that right. I finally decided it was time to bring out the big guns. After chickening out once and my dermatologist forgetting to enroll me in the iPledge program (yep that seriously happened), I finally started isotretinoin, better known as Accutane, on 2/27/2019. 571 more words

Almost 2 weeks in...

So, tomorrow will be day 14 of my treatment.
My first week on Isotretinoin was exactly as the dermatologist had described. Pretty much every mild side effect she mentioned revealed itself in the first 7-9 days of treatment for me. 297 more words
