Iv been taking roaccuntane 10 mg a day now for a week. Iv had mild/moderate acne before i started taking them a week ago and a become seriously bad with my spots. made my confidence of even alking outside this house go rite down.

Is ths normall to get Cysts and lots more spots on 1st 2 weeks?

There really red aswell.

Im fed up and im hoping accuntane is gonna do the trick soon enough.

I went through the same thing, only worse. I had maybe 5-8 cysts on my face and within 2-3 days after starting accutane I went up to easily over 20 cysts. It's aweful, it sucks, I didn't want to go anywhere and even wouldn't let my husband see me. But within 2 weeks there was a massive improvement, and I'll be done week 5 tomorrow and I'm pretty much clear. I had really bad red scars from the IB that I got, and was worried at how long it would take for them to disappear, but now they're faded quite a bit and I hardly wear any makeup to cover them.

I guess patience and strength is the only thing I can recommend to you. I thought the first month would never end, but before I knew it, here I am. It was very hard at times, but the hope that the drug was working and that this might be my last/worst breakout for the rest of my life kept me going, and I made it through. Don't give up, a couple of weeks of your life is nothing compared to having the rest of your life back.

Good luck!
