when will it get better?!?!?!?!

Ive been on Accutane for two months and this week started the 3rd month... I am still breaking out, I am still very dry and very red and getting extremely frustrated!!!

I started on 80mg a day and I am still taking the same dose

I wash with a gentle cleanser and moisturize everyday

What is the deal? When did everyone else really start to see results? I know it takes time but I was wondering how long it would take to start to improve... I really need some support and something to look forward to, as these past couple months have really got me down

Accutane is supposed to make your acne worse in the beginning and you're supposed to be very dry cuz that's what the drug does, it dries up every single pore in your body. Be more patient, it sounds like it's working. These symptoms should be expected. I still had a few breakouts when I was on it for a month or two then started improving a lot more on the third month.
