After taking 60 mg/ day for the first four months of my course, my derm decided to bump me up to 80 mg/ day for my final month. However, my side effects were really starting to bother me (gushing bloody nose, super dry skin all over my body, red/ irritated eyes, joint pain), so I decided to drop down to 40 mg/ day and continue taking Accutane for two more months. Dropping my dose has really helped my side effects a lot and my skin is still perfectly clear, so I'm happy with the decision even though it means an additional month. I don't really have anything else to report, but would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season!
