2. do everybody has face initial breakout who has been on this treatment? and if yes can i do sum thing 2 prevent it?

The side-effects kicked in after 4-5 days and has increased since, in my case. Now is my 14th day, and i think i'm having now this initial break out, i'm experiencing acnes around my lips :(

I think the doze is personalized, it depends mostly on your weight i think

good luck buddy
