Wow. What an amazing experience this has been. I honestly cannot believe my skin was ever as bad as it was. If I didn't have old pictures I would never have believed it. Look under this post to see photos of how bad my skin was at day 7!
I'm still only on 20mg a day and I have about 2 and a half months left on accutane. I get no side effects anymore. My lips aren't even very dry, neither is my skin. I have the smoothest facial skin! I feel amazing
One thing I've stopped doing is drinking alcohol. Alcohol affects you so much worse while on this drug. I don't recommend it. Other than that my side effects are zero.. Except beautiful skin
If you're wondering whether to start accutane, just do it! And if you're just starting out, stick with it.
