I've been on 10mg and I face is awful!

Hey everyone!

I'm new here, so i'm slowly getting the hang of this. Anyways, I was put on Accutane (10mg) and I have been on it for 7 days. I have had bad break-outs recently (large pimples everywhere) and some-what dry lips. My acne wasn't to bad to begin with, as I was prescribed 'Tetracycline' cream a while ago, which reduced my acne but didn't get rid of it. Oh, and I am 16 by the way, if that makes a different. So, I was wondering if I had my initial breakout early, and how long would it usually last? Also, it seems to be happening on one side of my face more then the other side, is this normal?

Give it at least two months man. Especially with only 10 mg. Your IB shouldn't be too bad at that dose though.
