2 months in, my experience so far.

Recommended Posts

Ok so I'm actually about 9 weeks in. I didn't have any facial acne to start with but rather the back and shoulder variety. My acne has cleared up nicely on my shoulders but I still have a bit on my back and I get a new one maybe once a week. Much better overall though. I'm hoping to be totally clear by the end. Side effects: The usual dry lips, skin and hair. I workout quite intensely and i've begun to notice some joint pain. My doctor said it's the beginning stages of tendinitis of the elbow so I'm going to take a week off the gym and see how that goes. So far so good though. I should note that I'm part of a study for a new form of accutane that requires much less active ingredient. I don't know if I'm on the old stuff or the new stuff though. I suspect the old stuff. Either way the effects are supposed to be identical. The best part is my accutane is free.
