I'm currently almost 2 weeks into my first accutane course. I'm pretty sure I'm going through my IB right now. Lots of pustules on my sore, itchy face.
The effects are kicking in. My lips and skin are getting a little dry, plus I'm going through a heavy period right now (don't know if that's connected to accutane?).
But, what's mostly worrying me is whether my dose may be a little high. My derm wants me to start off with 40 mg for the first month and then double it to 80 mg for the remaining 4 months. I weigh 110 pounds, so it seems a lil high to me, just by looking around at blogs. Is it too high? I also suffer from Hidradenitis Suppurativa (nodular/cystic acne on my armpits), which might be a reason why it might be a little higher.
