SOOOO I'm super excited/nervous to start Accutane today!!!! I'm 18 years old and I've had mild/moderate acne since I started high school. I've literally tried like everything you can possibly imagine and nothings really worked on my acne. My doctor decided to put me on 10mg of accutane a day to start with so I'm praying this works!! Anyways, I took my first pill (10mg of accutane) tonight at dinner and just one question like why does the pill have to be red ?! it kinda freaks me out.
