My low 10mg accutane, every second day diary

Recommended Posts

Day 4

i have taken my 4th pill yesterday, kinda gettin headaches alot, im dry around my eyes

Im using Dermalogica clay cleanser and Md formulation cleanser with dermalogica active moist

im also takin vitamin C Tabs and also Fish Oils tabs once a day

i have mild acne anyway

my forehead is clear just a red mark or two

have 5 spots on my right side of my face around chin mouth area and the same on the left except with more red marks

I think the red marks are the worst so annoying

Im still using benzol peroxide 5 on the spot areas to try clear them up

Hi -

How long will you take Accutane? Are you taking 10 mg daily or every other day? Are you male or female? If female, is your acne more hormonal and occassional or? Mainly on the chin? Will your Derm. up your dose during treatment?

I'm on Accutane now too. I'm suppose to take 10 mg daily, but so far since starting last week 4/27, am taking every other day. Yeah, I'm getting mild headaches shortly after taking the medicine. So far, I notice my lips very slightly dry and my eyes. I also wear contacts so I'm gonna pay close attention there and put drops in often. I have mild acne (more hormonal) which I get on the chin and sometimes the outer corners of my nose. I also have mild Rosacea (pink cheeks and nose) so I'm taking low dose as not to fry my face. Worry about the side effects though and if low dose will really cure the problem. May have to take longer than six months since such low dose.

Good luck and talk to ya soon.

How long do you plan on taking low dose? Will you/your Derm. increase it later on? Do you have Rosacea or another skin condition that warrants a low dose (so as not to inflame or flare it)? You must have a nice Derm. - heard it's uncommon for us to get such low doses!

Thanks and talk to you soon.
