I honestly am starting to give up on Accutane.. I have been on 40mg and my acne hasn't disappeared, it will show up randomly and I keep developing new spots. My doctor raised me to 60mg and thats the highest I am allowed to go on because of my weight (109 pounds).
I am 20 years old still stuck with acne and just in a sad place right now with it because I look at all the other girls in my college classes, personal friends and ALL of them have beyond perfect skin. Then there's me and my dry skin, dry lips and still acne face. I know I still have a few months to go but I had been really hoping after two months I would notice a big difference- and I haven't. I have moderate acne and it is still moderate acne.
Side effects wise I have dry lips(but no cracks, I apply Cetaphil religiously), dry eyes, and dry skin. I also had a rash but my dermatologist gave me a cream that got rid of it.
I hope everyone is having a good experience with accutane for them and that they are seeing better results than I have these past few weeks. Cheers to all of us trying to get rid of acne- it really is an awful thing to have
