for me day 8 was the IBO, by week 2 you'll probably need the lip balm. I was

clear by week four. I was on 80 mg @ 120#'s

We all experience different things, you don't know what will happen. Don't talk

yourself into anything.

Best of luck

I didnt breakout at all on accutane and only had a total of about 4 small zits the entire 5 months. I needed lip balm all the time after about two weeks time. My lips were scaley from that point on even with aquaphor twice an hour.

About a week into the treatment for one day my face became extremely oily. It actually looked like I was sweating. It was weird but it only happened one day and after that my face completely dried to the point that I didnt have to wash with more than water.
