I’m on day 1 of week 22, and I was hoping this would be my last week. However, I went to my dermatologist today and, as I’d had some large spots that hadn’t cleared on my back, she suggested that I did another month at a lower dose (40mg instead of 60mg) so that I dont go over the cumulative dose of 150mg/kg.
The alternative was wait and see what happened and then have another full course if needed. I was not a fan of this option!!
So its another month to go. I think I’m still going to take 60mg per day so that I will finish quicker. I’m pretty downbeat about it all, I’ve just had enough of this completely!
Side effect / skin wise, its showing improvements from a couple of weeks ago and my side effects are stable.
The only thing new that has happened is that I’ve had very sore eyes all week which has resulted in a hospital trip today. I have irritated / scratched corneas along with some other symptoms which are from contact lens wear, and its highly possible that roaccutane has influenced this. So, now I’m treating that too and can’t wear lenses for the near future.
Really hope that my back clears in the next couple of weeks and then I should be done within 4 weeks. If not I will definitely be having a break regardless so at least that’s something to look foward to!
