Recommended Posts

This is my 2nd course of accutane, i'm about a week in, and i dont know if im breaking out or its jsut my face being gay lol.

I was just wondering, since i'm on a low dose, when should i expect to see results?

Well 40mg isn't that low of a dose, unless ofcourse you weigh like 500lbs, but everyone reacts differently to the drug. I broke out my entire first course at around 40mg, whereas now I was clear about 1 or 2 months into this course. If I had to guess I'd say you should be around 100% clear by month 3, but again everyone reacts differently so who knows. I'd say your oil should be gone by at latest the end of month 1. Good luck!

A 9 month course on 40mg? I'd drop down to lower. I'm now suffering severe post-accutane side effects from a 8 month course at 4x40mg and 4x20mg.

yeah, that is why i worry, i see more people talking about post redness/flushing, hairloss/shedding and long term joint pains or being really vulnerable to injuries (bruises, etc.)
