Started Accutane Dec. 28 09

Hi - I am new here. Just started my 3rd round of Accutane (over a 10 year period). Am on 10 mg 1 x a day using generics this time.

My last time, about 4 years ago, my doc started me on 10 mg 2 x a day. I cleared up quickly, within 2 weeks. This time, it's a little slower obviously.

Days 1 - 5: Same issues, but with additional acne in weird spots: under my eyebrows, on my top lip, and inside my nostril.

Days 6 - 10: Cysts still there, zits less productive but still there... only very slight dryness

Days 11 - Present: Okay, whiteheads are dying down and I am seeing more smaller blackheads. Cysts are gone. This is a good thing because this is what happened to me last course (but earlier) - every pore and I mean EVERY pore turned to a blackhead at first!!! Woo hoo... Btw, my back still is breaking out but not as hugely
