So this is probably in the wrong section but I'm not sure where to post it so whatever
I started Accutane on February 8, 2012. I have just finished my second month. I started on 20 mg for the first month and on the second month I was put on 40 mg. In the first month I had a pretty bad IB and when I was upped to 40 mg I had another IB but not as bad as the first.
First month side effects: Some dry skin, flaky hair, joint pains, back pains, mood swings, low energy
Second month side effects: Dry skin is getting bad, lips are very dry, joint pains and back pains are completely gone, mood swings are eh and energy levels are back to normal!

Day 60: http://i41.tinypic.com/2a6sbkh.jpg
My face looks really bad in these day 60 pictures, but my face right now with the exception of 1-2 pimples is completely smooth. My dermatologist told me the rest is "pseudo-scarring" that will fade over time...kinda bummed about that though. But hey no disgusting red blotchiness!
