Ok I am now into month 4 of my accutane treatment. I originally started on 20Mg for one month, then they upped me to 30mg for two months and then last month I was put on 40mg - I have been told this will be my limit.
I am a little deflated to be honest with you. My skin has only made a slight (and I mean slight!) improvement, I am still getting many spots each day, much cystic acne on my face. My back acne seems to come and go (at the moment it seems to be clear). I am suffering still from really bad blackheads all over my face. I just would have thought after 4 months of treatment I would have seen some kind of change and I am slowly losing hope with this and think I am going to be stuck with acne forever.
Its very strange as the acne seems to move around my face - sometimes on the left cheek, sometimes on the forehead, chin area, neck etc.
I've been really good with moisturising to keep my skin hydrated though my nose gets very dry, to the point of the skin bleeding the other day. I use Cetaphil daily cleanser twice a day, morning and night and use simple face cream for moisturising.
Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced such a slow reaction to accutane?
Your imput would be greatly received.
