Accutane First Appointment!



Hey guys!

So it's been a month since I first went to my Derm and told her I wanted to start accutane. I took a preg test and signed the iPledge and waited a whole month! I got my blood work done today and am just waiting for the OK from my doc to get my prescription.

Again, I'm starting with 20mg a day and slowly working my way up (if I need to). I have mild/moderate acne with mainly small whiteheads and blackheads and sometimes big pustules/cysts around my chin (yay hormones!)

Anyone else going through this same method?

Until next time smile.png


your acne sounds just like mine.

I'm currently in my second month of accutane. no complaints so far. skin seems to be a little better since beginning, but not completely clear.

good luck!

I started exactly 19 days ago and yes my acne was very similiar to yours. I am on 40mg but i think it depends on how much you weigh. My acne has definetly changed since i started, i don't believe ive gotten a cyst in the past two weeks and I think my acne heals much faster. Maybe its all in my head but i don't think so. My skin is slightly flaky so find a good moisturizer! My lips just like everybody says are dry lol Good luck with everything and hope all goes well!
