So it's week one of accutane. Just a little background info: I'm 19, female, and have severe cystic acne that has become unresponsive to other treatments. A little fearful of accutane, but it's a last resort so I'm down! Since I looked up tons of posts about accutane on here to better understand how it affects people, I thought I'd do the same
week one: New pimples, infrequent lower back pain, lips are getting chapped, VERY OILY SKIN. Don't know what the oil is about. Thought accutane is supposed to dry you out? Also, constipation. I know now that I need to drink LOTS of water. Hopefully will see better results soon.
