Got the RX filled today and started my first pill about 3 hours ago. So far no side effects other than dry lips. Is it possible that can start happening so soon?? I've stocked up on lotions, chapstick, and fish oil. Hopefully this will go well foro me!!!

Good luck to all the accutane users!!!

Nah your dry lips arent because of the accutane yet... Your first side effects will probably show up during day 3-4. The first thing you'll notice is dry lips, dry skin and dry eyes (find some very good moisturizer for your skin and lips, and use eye drops!) and you'll probably have somekind of an initial breakout that will last for a few weeks.

Just drink a lot of water (I mean, a LOT, like you were in the desert!) and moisturize daily.
