Hey guys!! I have had acne since I was 14. I am now 18. I had really bad acne, and was on a variety of medications and topical treatments. I was on minocyclin, tetracyclin, doxycyclin, and benzaclin, as well as a benzol peroxide wash. Finally, after the acne kept getting worst over the course of the last 4 years, my derm put me on accutane which I started in late March.

My initial dose is 40 mg/day. I have now taken it for about 18 days, and already it has made a little difference. I still have the acne, but no new acne is forming. I had a bad breakout the first week, but no new pimples since. My skin is smoother than it has ever been, even though I still have a lot of acne (if that makes any sense). As far as side effects, I only have dry lips. I wear contacts and have not noticed any dry eyes or any other symptoms. If you guys have any questions, feel free to contact me.
