could you describe how bad your acne is? (are they small or are they cystic and in which areas of your face?)

been on 10mg for almost 6months now and it does it job pretty well. good luck with your treatment.

Day 13.

Well it´s been a while since my last post so ....

Lips...very,very dry.....

i had a break out ....in days 8,9,10....

my skin is not dry at all.............i thought that was inusual...but i think its because of my low dose.. (20 mg a day)

nothing much to report .... im doing ok and it´s beginnig to work...!

I just have a doubt .... it´s ok to drink alcohol douring accutane...??

I have a no red meat, no smoke, no drinking diet.. since october 1 .. but im thinking in having a few beers once in a while.... is that OK ???
