New to Roaccutane

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am 28 years old and although i do not have severe acne by most standards what i have has persisted since i was 14 and is concentrated around my chin and top lip.

As a last resort since i have tried the tetracyclines etc, i have just taken my first 35mg dose of Roaccutane. Am feeling nervous as heard lots about possible psychological damage and am feeling quite nervous.... seeking a bit of reassurance about the side effects!!!!

Don't worry about the psychological effects. I noticed my skin was dryer than normal when I was on it. I had the odd nose bleed in the middle of the night.

That was about it.

Treat yourself to a good face moisturizer, and you'll be fine.

The stuff works too. You will see a difference pretty quick.

Accutane is one hell of a drug.
