Decided to start an accutane log and post updates from time to time! I'm a 20 year old male, have had persistent mild to moderate acne for about five years, and I'm turning 21 in April. Went to a new dermatologist and he decided to put me on accutane without any hesitation. The first month I'm starting on 60 mg/day and I'll be bumped up to 80 mg/day the next month.
I started on 2/26/13 so right now I'm on Day 4.
*Day 4 Update*
Definitely starting to have the beginning of what could be the initial breakout. Getting bad inflamed acne on my jawline that I've never had before, as well as cystic acne, praying it can die down a little over the weekend . Other than that, no side effects that have been too serious. I notice my lips are getting a little dryer but not chapped yet. I am thirsty ALL the time however and my throat seems to always be dry.
Will update this thread with how this progresses, hopefully this will really do the trick for my acne
EDIT: Adding pictures from now on throughout the course. Here's pictures I have taken so far...
