Congrats on joining the accutane journey lol, i've been on it for a month now & it's definitely doing it's job. I'm also on 20mgs per day which will continue for another month then i'll get bumped up to 40mgs per day for another 3 months.
I went in with a fair few spots on my face which have mostly all cleared now. There's just 3 stubborn ones left which i've been keeping an eye on & i'm noticing their slow, but sure farewell.
I was taking minomycin at one point which had no effect on my skin whatsoever, so i tried duac which worked temporarily, which is of course not good enough. So i decided i'd take my last option. I'm not sure if i've experienced the IB yet because my skin has mostly cleared since taking accutane rather than produced more spots. But my derm tells me it can occur anywhere between the 2-3 month mark so i'm not in the clear yet. Fingers crossed it treats me nicely.
One word of advice, don't underestimate this drugs strength. It has the power to make you feel as vulnerable as an autumn leaf during a hurricane. Make sure you take your dose with a proper, hearty meal & wash it down with a full glass of water otherwise you can look forward to dying on the bathroom floor with whatever you've eaten for the past week along with your dose happily swimming in your toilet bowl.
With that said, good luck, hopefully you see results soon & stock up on a lot of moisturizer & lip balm. You'll be needing it very soon (:
