Definately had a big initial breakout, but as you can see from the pictures it was already bad. i must have had at least 60 - 70 actives - seriously, now id say theres under 8, so the tane is taking over.

So thta breakout must have happened in the first few weeks and then just subsided?

The breakout was one big hit around days 7 - 10 and then it went away. still some red marks from the cysts but there fading.

Hey! Wow looking good! You're skin is improving so nicely and so fast! I wish you all the luck on the rest of your Accutane course.. If you're skin is looking that great already, you're going to have flawless skin by the end of the course.

Keep us updated! :)

Face is getting clearer and fewer breakouts. breakouts now are only like 2 or 3 small pimples, thats nothin compared to before tane.

So today i went to get my blood test and on friday is my derm appointment so hopefully im still good. If everything goes as planned ill ask him to bump me up to 60mg because my skin isnt peeling anymore just chapped lips. ill let you guys know if i get bumped up ;)

Acne - during the last 2 months ive maybe gotten 3 or 4 new blemishes total, compared to 50 or more actives daily before tane. Red marks for previous breakouts fading slowwwllyy.

Side effects - 1 - Redness - 2 - dry hands, lips dry to, of course. 3 - shedding some hair and eyebrow hair.

Im going to try to do 2 more months of 60mg if i can handle it, because my total dosage would be 9000mg and thats what my goal was before i started.

Hi acnex100, wow awesome results, you can barely see the red marks.

It's really encouraging to see your progress, hopefully I'll get to see some results soon too, albeit my acne is a lot worse than yours to start with.

but congrats!

Thanks to anyone who has looked at my log.
