The first month on accutane is flying by!! Feeling great so far...only side effects are dried lips and mild dry skin on my chin and neck. Best news is I am 100% clear! I woke up the last 5 days with not one zit! My skin is looking great...hoping it is too late in my treatment to get the dreaded initial breakout!!
