6 weeks following treatment

It's now been 6 weeks since I took my final dose of isotretinoin, so thought I should provide an update. 

I noticed the drug leaving my system after I stopped taking it - I became less tired after a week or two, stopped aching after going to the gym after about four weeks and now I no longer have to apply lip balm every five minutes! The moisture levels in my skin and my eyes appear to be back to normal and I feel the same as I did before taking it. 

The most exciting part so far is that I have still not had a single spot (or any feeling that one might appear), so it is still working. Hopefully that will continue!

I am still using Cetaphil cleanser and lotion as it has been great up to now.  In my last week of taking isotretinoin, I experienced a slight rash on my chin, but it went away after a couple of days and has not returned. 

All in all, I'm incredibly happy with the results and have received numerous compliments on my skin, which is pretty amazing given my 'before' photos.

Glad to read a success story!  All too often we are plagued with peoples' negative experiences on Accutane, but it's great to get some hope from positive stories like this one.  Hopefully. Your skin stays clear permanently!
