dude your skin looks great i'm really suprised you're still on 30mg tbh, because i'm only 14 with mild acne and my derm started me on 40mg... weird i suppose. anyway yeah it's pretty much downhill from here, you should starting seeing improvements in the next weeks or so. stay strong man.
Just Started Accutane.

Awhhhhh shiiiiieeeeet boys. I'm really sorry for not updating this since april or so , but that's when i really started improving and i stopped having much interest in this.
I am basically acne free right now , this is my seventh month of roaccutane i think , i'm still taking it for 2 more months , 10 mg every 2 days and it's looking goood as you can see.
I encourage anyone who wants to get rid of their acne , this has been a great product.Despite the initial breakout , which was HORRIBLE , you really do get "cured" of this shitty social-life-killing disease , and it's worth it in the end.
The bumps that you are seeing are actually holes , marks , from the old pimples. I am currently working on them with 2 creams , Hepathrombin and Skinoren , and after i am done with accutane i will prolly do some other more invasive ( i'd say) treatments like facial peeling or whatever my dermatologist says.
Have a great one!!!

That is awesome!
I just started accutane 6 days ago
I want to do low dose and my derm agreed
but my appt to get my scripts for accutane she rec 40mg a day?
(I weigh about 130 or less)
I insisted I wanted a lower dose so she agreed ot 20mg but after 2 weeks wanted me to bump to 40mg and at the end of 6mnths over 80mg?
Did your Dr suggest this longer term low dose regimen or was it at your suggestion?

Hey Kim , I went in wanting a high dose , because i weigh a lot (well 80kg , dno if thats a lot) and 10mg seemed an awful lot less than what people get prescribed on this forum, so I was a little dissapointed when she only prescribed that.
The 10mg caused a huge initial breakout , i have no idea what would've happened if i was on a higher dose . The highest i went was 30mg a day.

Very cool to see such a dramatic improvement from accutane. I remember the doctor saying that it is quite normal for your acne to get WORSE in the first 2-6 weeks. Looks like that happened to you, and then it finally started to work, and voila, acne really disappeared. Nice!
