Question about Accutane Dose

Recommended Posts

I am on 40mg per day. Started this week, I wanted to ask when did you start to see an improvement in your skin? I can't wait to see some results. Also, if you are on 40mg a day did you experience mild or severe dryness? what would be the best brand of lip balm to use?

I started on and stayed at 30mg a day (I am 120lbs). The recommended dose is weight dependent. My acne cleared within about 6 weeks (but I was also on antibiotics at the time). The length of time for improvement differs from person to person unfortunately so for you it may take longer. I suffered from moderate dryness and used carmex and eucerin on my lips. I've seen some people suggest that carmex is not good for accutane lips because it contains salicylic acid or some other peeling agent. I found it helpful though. Good luck with your treatment.
