Happy New Year everybody! So, I've been off Accutane for 5 months now and not a single blemish to speak of. I have gotten compliments on my appearance and even told i don't look my age.... which is 45. Your skin looks great, RichardB. Feels great doesn't it?!

I'm not using anything at the moment. Skin is clear and neither oily nor dry. My derm recommended Neutrogena Acne wash if the time comes when i need it. I'm really hoping for a year or two of not needing anything. Also, my derm reminded me that accutane continues to work for a while even after you've taken your last dose. Any pimples you may still have after your last dose are still getting the business end of the accutane and should clear up nicely. I'd take it again in a New York minute of needed. Very happy with the results. I used to wake up in the morning and immediately go look in the mirror for new cysts/bumps which were always there and my day would start off on a downer note. These days that burden has been lifted off my mind and life is good. Here's hoping you get the same results and are able to live without the stigma of stupid acne getting in the way of life. Cheers!

I'm finishing my 6th month on accuatane and it has worked wonders. 13 days is very early on in your treatment so don't expect immediate results... just keep taking your pills as prescribed. I went through a pretty bad IB at the 1 to 2 month mark but once that cleared things really improved. I have about 1 more week left and am 99.9% clear and couldn;t be happier about it. I'm positive you will see the same results in time.

I'm almost finished with my treatment and last month had one huge zit pop up on the back of my neck. It hung around for weeks and finally went away. Now, I can say I'm 99.9% clear. You'll get there, just have patience.
