Hi all

I am currently taking 20mg accutane per day and have just finished my first month

My lips are dry

Not many new pimples - but the oil on my face has not dried out I would say that after a month I am more oilier

So my question is when will my oil on my face dry up or is what my derm prescribed 20mg per day not enough to dry me up

Thanks for all your hellp

I think your face is oliler because it is so dry that your skin response to it by producing more oil to compensate. Try using more moisturiser it might help.

I am also taking 20 mgs. per day and I am 54 kgs. My skin got drier but not a whole lots, also the pimples on my face were gone after 1 month. Just wait a while and see what happens. Maybe it will get drier as you begin your second month, if not talk to your derm!

Good luck!!
