Ian's Accutane Journal
Last updated:  JAN 19, 2004!
    Hello to all of you out there who have managed to find my website in some way.  I started this journal mainly to help many out there who are unsure if Accutane is the right acne drug for them.  I got my inspiration from a girl named Jenn who has already completed her 5 months on the drug and who had an absolutely educational diary to read.  If you want to check it out, just click here.

   
I want to start of by giving you my "acne history."  I started to get very mild acne my freshman year of high school.  During my sophomore year, this grew a lot worse and that is when I started to visit the dermatologist.  Over the past three years, I have been put on so many different antibiotics, creams, cleansers, and pills that I cannot even count them.  I had heard about Accutane, but was scared off due to the possible side effects.  Finally, after my senior year, I decided that things were going nowhere and that it was time to suck it up and start taking Accutane.

     So, here I am four weeks into my treatment and things have gone well so far (for more info on weeks 1-3, go to the next page).  Through this journal, I hope to educate you all through my experiences on the drug and let you know how good (or bad) this drug has been for me.  Just remember that these are only my opinions, and should be taken as such.  My views do not represent Roche pharmecueticals in any way.

     If you have any questions or comments on this journal, do not hesitate to sign my guestbook or

So, without further ado, I give you weeks 1-3
