:surprised: Hello,

I am now almost done with my first week of Accutane and after some doubt I am ready to see the changes. I was alittle hesident to start Accutane becaues of all the warnings and risks but because nothing else had worked I decied to give it a try...

Pre Accutane:

I have moderate acne, but because the acne I have consistes of cyst that are deep in my skin, no acne perscription has helped. My acne is on my checks and chin and comes and goes. I have had skin problems for about 5 years now and I'm ready for a solution and thats when i turned to Accutane.

Week One:

I have been taking 40MG once a day and so far I have experenced little side effects. Just today (days 6) my checks have starts to get alittle red, as you can tell in the picture. My lips are alittle chaped and my skin is starting to get dry. I started using a better moisturiser and I think that is helping my face from getting extremly dry.

Well I'll update next week, and until then Happy New Years! :dance:

I started Accutane two days before you, so I'd say that we are at about the same point. I'm experiencing the same things that you are; my acne is even similar to yours. So far, my face is beginning to redden, especially my nose. My lips are becoming irritatingly chapped and my knees are hurting.

What are you currently using to wash your face? I won't be able to see my derm for a few weeks and I don't know what to use. :confused:
