From: Two Weeks In Side Effects



I started accutane 17 days ago. I take 80mg a day. 40 in the am and 40 before bed. I had dryness start around day 3, my face got so red it burned and cetaphil actually burned to apply. The cleaner and moisturizer. I had a ton of zits and dry scabbed areas that makeup made my face look worse. Even my hair wasn't oily after 3 days! I then forgot to make my morning dose for 3 days in a row. My symptoms subsided and now I've not forgotten my full dose for 6 days. The symptoms never returned that badly again. Does this mean it's not working or that the initial breakout was just short? Any thoughts? I do have about 4-5 sore pimples right now, but the first week on accutane it's like all the areas were irritated and pimples everywhere!
