starting accutane soon!!!

Recommended Posts

I finally went to see the derm today! He wrote me a prescription for Isotretinoin 20mg and 40mg. (60mg/day for 6 months). I now must get my blood work done and faxed to the derm so that he can register me on iPledge. Then, I can pick up my meds.

If everything goes smooth, I should be taking my first (two) isotretinoin pills on Wednesday 2/3. I'm very excited!! I will start a thread for my accutane log at that point.

I'm all smiles!!!

What unpleasant side effects have you been experiencing? How long have you been taking it?

So far only 5 days. Surprisingly lips aren't too dry but my skin is red and tight which is very annoying.

I'm on 40mg a day.

enjoy not having to apply lip balm every five minutes for now. after about a month you really start feeling "effects" good and bad. Hopefully mostly good though
