3 Months & 1 Week Post Accutane

Currently, I have around 8 small clogged pores (or non-inflamed whiteheads) on my forehead, which are a little difficult to notice unless in the proper lighting, and 3 small inflamed whiteheads around my mouth. Also, some blackheads are beginning to appear on my nose, but not nearly to the extent as before.

2 Months (Almost) Post Accutane

Two days away from my second month off Accutane and I currently have about 5-6 very small, skin-colored bumps on my forehead. They usually go away after 3-7 days and a few additional ones may form. I think they are pimples trying to develop but unable to do so due to my time on Accutane. I did have some similar bumps develop on my chin that formed tiny whiteheads. Additionally, I had 2 red spots develop on my forehead that never really became anything (one turned into a small, skin-colored bump)

I have had some small, skin-colored bumps develop on my temples, forehead, and nose; some of these seem to be going away and some are still present (not sure if they are clogged pores or something else). When trying to research these skin-colored bumps, I found some information that they might be the result of my sk

Cumulative Dose

My weight = 155 lbs or 70 kg Total Cumulative Dose = (60 days * 40mg) + (90 days * 80mg) = 2400 + 7200 = 9600 mg 9600 mg / 70 kg = 137 mg/kg The standard dosage is between 120 mg/kg to 150 mg/kg, so I ended up in the middle.

Just Finished Month 4 Of 5

I just thought I would share my experience so far with Accutane (specifically the generic brand Claravis). Today is the end of my fourth month; I will be starting my fifth and final month tomorrow. My initial dosage was 40mg/day for the first two months and was increased to 80mg/day for the last three months. I weigh 155 lbs. Day 3: Noticed some peeling on nose Day 7: Face and lips very dry/face became red shortly after taking pill (extreme blushing) Day 9: Some chest and lower back pa
