Youre really not that bad off. How long have you been using the retin-a ? Tried antibiotics?

If it was me I'd go for the extra month. Dont want to look back and think what if I would have just taken it.. But do what you think is best

My eyes get blood shot sometimes too on Accutane. I believe its just do to the dryness. I also notice it gets worse in the winter. You can always ask your doctor if youre concerned

Day 11:
 
So I've been on 80 mg for four days if I count today. The side effects have definitely increased. My main issue is headaches. Two days ago I had a horrible headache that felt more like a migraine. That was definitely unusual for me as I don't get migraines. I also have a dull headache today and my right eye is constantly twitching. Plus I'm dealing with some body aches, it feels a bit like I worked out, though I haven't.
 
I hope this is just my body adjusting to the larger dose, and it will get better in a few days!
 
For my skin: A few days ago my skin was looking really good! It was smoother and with makeup on it looked kind of clear. But starting yesterday it felt like within hours my face just started exploding. I have 6 new spots in one day, so I would say I am in my IB. Joy! I am happy it is here though, so I can get it over with. I'll just have to conceal well. haha
 
My lips are also soooo dry! I worked outside yesterday hanging posters for a Veteran's Day parade, and my lips started cracking if I didn't reapply chapstick frequently. Just got to remember to have it on hand!

 

Hey I would pick up some aquaphor for your lips if you havent already.
