Side Effects Dissapearing..?

2 posts in this topic

Hi Guys !

I have been on 60mg a day of accutane for 1 month now. At the start of my course I suffered from a very bad initial breakout, extremely dry and flaking skin and very dry lips to the point they were peeling off. This continued for 3 weeks.

As i am approaching the middle of my 4th week I have noticed an improvement in my skin and the side effects have lessened severely. My skin is hardly ever dry and even my lips are peeling a lot less.

I am using mosturizer day and night and cleansing also.

I am worried the stop in side effects may mean a stop in the drug working?

Any ideas? is this normal?

Many thanks!!

Adrian

As long as you don't notice an increase in the oiliness (is that a word? lol), I wouldn't worry.
