Day 1 on Accutane



I took my first pill today (40mg) and let me tell you, I was freaking out. The package has all of the warnings on it as well as DO NOT GET PREGNANT all over it. And the pills were so hard to remove from the packaging. I was thinking "Wow, I am having a little bit of regret right now. What if all of these terrible side effects happen to me!" But I feel fine so far. I had a headache before I took it and now it seems to be getting worse, but as ironic as it is, I don't like taking medicine.

Hi, as someone who has just finished their Accutane course i can assure you that we all feel that with the first pill...so scary! However although the course is not nice remember that most of the really severe side effects are really rare... I found using this site was a lifeline being able to document a) my progress, B, what was happening to my body and c) talking to and getting support from people going through the same thing so hold on in there and GOOD LUCK!
