25/f Started Accutane Today!
Posted 20 July 2013 - 07:33 PM
I then decided on accutane, and just started today! The minocycline definetely helped, I no longer got cysts anymore, but I was still getting tiny little bumps all over. So I am very anxious and curious as to how I will react to accutane!

- Drink 3-4 L of water per day to minimise Accutane-related dehydation
- moisturise 2/3 times daily to minimise dry skin rashes common on Accutane
- avoid the sun and don't tan; use sunblock when in the sun
- don't drink alcohol
- take your pills with food to maximise absorption
- have lip balm ready

I'm a little over 20 days in and so far its been smooth sailing (knock on wood). Good luck!

Thanks for the tips! I already stocked up on lip balm, and I'm not quite sure what cleanser I want to get. I've been getting recommendations on CeraVe. I also drink a lot of water already so that wont be a problem. I also got a high spf lotion already, so I just need a good cleanser.
