Starting on Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I've just started on accutane and just like my dermo promised, my acne is getting worse. It's basically concentrated on my forehead and cheeks and it's not too bad yet but I'm just worried it's going to get really awful soon. What should I expect in the next few weeks? and when should I start clearing up?

thanks :)

from what i have heard on my derma and from what i have researched the first few days or weeks your pimples will all breakout then will clear eventually because of accutane... its like getting all the pimples to show then clearing them out...

-will have breakouts for awhile but thats just the tane clearing out everything from within.

-you'll get very dry (lips, eyes, skin), also you may get some eczema on your arms and back of hands.

-will start to feel very tired throughout the day.

for the dryness of the skin i would suggest buying eucerin redness relief (the night cream and day cream) and for the dry lips and eczema get aquaphor by eucerin, works great
