This is my face before I started Accutane. I am on 40 mg and I was terrified of starting this drug because of all the scary side effects. But, I was at my breaking point. I couldnt stand to look in the mirror, day after day, and see more pimples come up. I washed my face religiously morning and night. Tried Purpose soap and then broke down and went to the dermotologist. Two antibiotics later and no results, I began Accutane.
