Sorry to hear about the rash. So far, I have not experienced one, although I think they are common, because my doctor asks me about them every time I visit. I've been feeling really lousy these days, too, and don't know whether to attribute it to Accutane, a cold/sinus infection, or stress. I was feeling fine up until about a week and a half ago, and now I'm achy and tired, my eyes are killing me, and I have to get to the dentist to check on a bad toothache. Last visit he thought it was a sinus infection. It's gotten worse . . .
Good question regarding what "clear" means. I don't know My doc was going to bump me up to 60mg for my last two months (I just entered month four), but decided against it because of my eyes, increase in hair shedding, and the fact that my cholesterol still remains relatively high. We'll hit the mark needed if I go one more month, through December.
She's pretty much okay with that, since I've only had one breakout in the past four weeks, a big red hurty cyst that reared its ugly head on my chin four days ago. It's gone now, without ever having made much of a fuss. If I spend the rest of my life getting a small, easily resolved cyst and a couple whiteheads every now and again? I can live with that. I cannot live with the constant, inflammatory, scarring stuff. I hope THAT will be gone forever.
As for the side effects, since they can come without warning, let's hope they go without warning, and we feel relatively good for our final stretch.
