Roaccutane Diary 7 weeks into treatment.
Dryness is defiantly a big side effect for me however i don't find it too bad, although I've got to be careful not to scratch skin off and i need to remember to moisturise regularly, i dont find it that much of a hard ship. At first the dry flaky scalp grossed me out a bit but now its calmed down and i just apply coconut oil before i wash my hair. Im not used to having flaky and dry skin but it can be easily controlled.
My skin however is the best its ever been (touch wood) and i have never felt better, if i do get a spot it goes within a day or two which is amazing and my skin for the first time is smooth to touch. With make up on i look clear !!! So far i can really only find good things to say but this drug however its still not to be taking lightly so if you are considering it you must thoroughly research it. Ive had to stop taking the tablets for about 5 days as I've had a upset tummy while on holiday but the drug stays in your system for 4 weeks so no progress is lost. At my next appointment my dermatologist wants to increase my does to 40mg so i will keep you updated.
