In Topic: Got A Chest Infection 3.25 Months In - Is Accutane Contributing To Me Feeling...

Yes, I'm hoping that since I've done the bulk of the course it'll have been enough to still have the benefits long term if I stop !

In Topic: How Long Does Inital Breakout Last?

From what I've read it varies from person to person, but from personal experience I got my IB quickly, only 6 days in or so. But it disappeared just as quickly and was gone about 4-5 days later. Of course I am only on Day 16 now so whether it will come back or not I don't know, but I was pleased at how quickly it went away (it was pretty disconcerting to think the medicine I was taking to help my skin was making it worse than it was before I started).


Hope you have a similar experience :)

I had a similar experience. Normally only 4-5 spots at any one time, but within 6 days or so I broke out really badly, had 40+ active spots all over my face. It was unnerving. I was only on 40mg (for the first 4 weeks). I'm now on day 14, and I found it stopped as quickly as it started. I now have no active acne, and I'm hoping that continues.  Hope the same goes for your son!

In Topic: Accutane 40 Mg- Is That Enough?

I weigh 70kg, and have been put on a 4 month course. 40mg for the first 4 weeks and then 70mg for the remainder. How long is your course for?
