Day 43 Horrifying news

Karen L.


- Accutane day 43 on 20 mg going on 10 mg :D

- No new acne.

- Dry, red and flakking skin.

Received some horrifying news today at my derms' office; my derm is putting me on 10 mg beginning from tomorrow. I couldn't convince her to let me stay on 20 mg. I even began over the 120 mg per kilo you need in order to minimize acne to come back, she said and I quote "Ã am the specialist and I know what is good for you and we are going to experiment". Thus, she wants to experiment with my dosage a.k.a my face!!! I almost forgot why I disliked her, now I remember.

I haven't had active acne for 3 weeks now, I should be very happy and content however my pores have become huge since a few days. I have dry and red patches on my face and I don't dare to scrub or put too much moisturizing cream on my face (my derm doesn't want me to use moisturizing cream at all). Maybe the 10 mg is better I'm just frightened it will get worse.

Has anyone had the same experience? Been put on a lower dosage so early?

Love Karen

Hey girl, sorry to hear about the decrease in the dosage. Hope it won't show on your skin. Don't worry too much, think how great is not to have new spots for a few weeks! don't forget about that. smile :- it will soon be over and you will have a perfect skin.
