So I’ve just finished my first week on Accutane! It’s annoying how slow it’s going I’m on 20mg a day and will eventually be upped to 60mg during a 4 month course. I haven’t suffered really with any side effects other than my lips being a little dry but Carmex seems to help. I was really worried about potential hair thinning too so I’ve bought some Nioxin shampoo to try and prevent that from happening.
My skin is already looking better than when I first started but I can feel some spots coming around my nose. My chin is completely clear which is unusual for me as It’s normally my worse area for spots. I’m hoping to be one of the lucky few that doesn’t have an initial breakout but it’s still very early on.
It really worries me that I won’t hit my cumulative dose and my acne will return after treatment. A four month course seems a little short compared to others..
