Me+Accutane vs. The Acne

Week 1

Hi, I'm Courtney, I'm 27, and this is my first week of Accutane. I'm on the generic Amnesteem, 40mg once per day. I've been dealing with acne for 15 years, it's never been cystic, but it's been stubborn--I've tried EVERYTHING including OTC methods, prescription gels and creams, Dan's regimen, and antibiotics, so Accutane is kind of my last ditch effort.

I'm both nervous and excited to be on this drug! I just hope it works...

Hi Courtney, I'm in my second week and I'm also 27... I am only taking 220 mg a day... So.. I havne't seen many side effects yet besides a little drier lips and more little bumps on my forehead (a problem area for me). Hope it works for both of us! Good luck!!! :dance:

I had the same situation. My acne has never been too bad just stubborn. Proactive worked for 6 months or so but then slowly it came back. Antibiotics did the same thing. Ive been on accutane for 2 months and my skin is near perfect. Good luck!
