Will 10mg do anything???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I have been on Accutane for 2 and a half months now. 1 month at 40mg a day and the rest at 20mg a day. My derm lowered my dose because 40mg was making my lips so dry that they bled and my hand eczema was getting really bad. Also, I was getting quite a bit of Taneburn on 40mg and my nose was swelling. Once I lowered my dose the nasal swelling and eczema disappeared but my skin is still very blotchy and red around my T-zone, nose and chin.

My derm has suggested lowering my dose to 10mg a day to help with redness, but does anyone know whether 10mg will actually do anything???

I am so annoyed as 40mg was really helping my skin but I just couldn't handle the side effects, so I am hoping 10mg will help my skin without making me red.

Please give me your advice I am feeling so low about my skin at the moment, I would do anything to get my flawless skin back.
