20mg a day.....no dryness yet- is this normal?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just started taking accutane (Sotret) on September 8th with a doss of 20mg once a day. So far I have not felt really any side effects, including any increased dryness. So just wondering if this is pretty normal for such a low dose or not.

I have been taking sotret for 6 days. I also do not have any dryness. I think you might start to get dry in week 2. I go up to 30 mg a day next month, so I am guessing I will really start to feel dry then. After that I will be going up to 40 mg a day for a couple of months.

On my first course (40mg/day) I didn't notice anything for 2 weeks. Then my lips started feeling a tiny bit dry. The oil didn't decrease for a good 3, almost 4 weeks.
