Dry Skin Before Accutane?

I am now on Day 5 of my treatment and starting to experience some side effects (dry hair, throat, tired). So far no changes with my skin or lips but I'm sure that's coming. I am 110 lbs (50 kg) and am on 40mg/day. For anyone with fairly dry skin to begin with, what was your experience? Specifically:
1. Do you feel your treatment was any more or less effective than those with oily skin? (In reading the treatment logs, it appears that most people using this drug have oily skin & that's why it's recommended).
2. Do you think having dry skin increased or decreased your risk of an initial breakout?
3. Did you experience more severe dryness than most because you were dry to begin with? (I'm moisturizing like a crazy person!)
4. Do you feel like your skin looked healthy at the end of treatment?
Thanks so much for your help.

I may be wrong, but you are playing with fire if you already have dry skin. Some are dried up for years after accutane who never had dry skin to begin with. If it gets too bad stop!
