Accutane - Question Please!question accutane roaccutane claravis amnesteem hurt red skin irritation dry
Posted 15 April 2012 - 04:00 AM
It's day 12 on accutane, and it has been going far better than I imagined. I was fearing the iB, but it hasn't appeared. Actually my skin has been improving since day 1. I'm 90% cleared alraedy, only on 40mg.
Although, it makes me a bit dry. Not on my lips, but inside my nose I guess, that'll explain my nosebleeding. I've had 2 nosebleeds already.
And my throat was hurting before I went on accutane, and it has gotten worse. I think it's because of the dryness it develops in the throat.
My question is; should I decrease my dosage to 20mg? That would be 1 pill per day. It hurts like hell everytime I'm sinking. And I can't live with nosebleeds every single day in 5 months
If so, what time of the day would be best for me to take it? Breakfast, lunch, dinner or ??
Please anwser my questions asap, if it's in your reach.

ive soon finished my accutane, my doc told me if it was too much of side effects i should do a bit lower dose, but I think the sideeffects i have got is not to bad so I didnt go lower. I had side effects like dry lips, face and arms/legs in general, noseebleed, tired eyes and redness. I guess I just got used to all the side effects, but anyways you could talk to your doctor about it and do what he/she says.
I took all my pills to dinner.

I just gotta get something for me throat. I've been sick for some time. Had a really bad bacteria in my throat, and it hasn't fully recovered yet. And the dryness from Accutane makes it sore.
So have you cleared up yet?
