Week 5, Day 38 - 40Mg To 80Mg



So my face is really clearing up, no new sore spots just hyperpigmentation from past damage. I have a slight rash on my upper arms that you can feel not see due to the dryness but it was expected.

I saw my dermatologist yesterday - my cholesterol is fine and he is going to bump my dosage to 80mg a day. Which is quite high but will dry me out massively. In two weeks he wants to start me on Vitamin A Cream to help with the smoothness and hyperpigmentation.

Lips are going to fall off with double the dose but I will do anything for clear skin. My hair is also totally dry - I can wash it once a week because there is no oil.

And that is all I have to report.

I have been reading your blog! I am on Day 3 of accutane, nearly 4! At the moment im on 20mg a day as i only weigh 54kg.. Do you think within 6 weeks my skin will be looking any better? That is when i go back to school here in the uk and also the same week where my dosage will be upped much higher! Thanks, x

You are on a very low dose which traditionally means it takes longer to see results. I dont know how bad your acne is but you can be rest assured that by the end of your Accutane treatment your skin will be much better.
