So i started my Accutane last week 3/25/13 and have been taking 40 mg a day. The doctor said to do a 40mg one day and 2 the next. I didn’t do it the first week so my skin could adapt to the pill so i might do it this week since i feel better. I have one cyst in the back of my jawline which is so irritating! I use Cervae to wash my face morning and night and use the am moisturizer and the pm moisturizer at night. If you all recommend something else id appreciate whatever will help the dryness/redness!

I am tryingt to show an image....


its great to hear you have started. be sure to use a sunblock errday! how long did it take from the time you visited your derm to actually getting the Accutane itself?
