MattF's Acne Log

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've been lurking on this forum for several months, since I began my generic accutane treatment. A bit about myself: I'm 27, male, 5'10 145lbs and have had pretty stubborn acne since about 18. I've done tetracycline treatments twice to no real effect. I finally shelled out the cash for a real dermatologist and got a prescription for generic accutane. I've been on a 40mg sotret / 30mg claravis regimen now since Sept 14th or so. I should be getting near day 60 (I didn't bother to do math to get the exact # of days)

Anyways, I've still got acne. I don't really notice a huge difference in my acne from the accutane, although it sure makes my lips feel like crap. I went ahead and started this post just because I am annoyed that after almost 60 days I'm still getting fresh acne. (painful acne at that) I'm sure not alone on this, but it can feel like it some days.

I am hoping that some of you kind folks can let me know just how long it took to really see the full effect of this medication for you. I had heard that by 60 days I should be seeing real benefits but I have continued to break out regularly.

At any rate good luck to all those going through this process. Life's a bitch but we get through it.
