Hi there,

Accutane is a strange drug since it reacts so differently with different people. Even my twin brother and I had different reactions!

I was breaking out more than I ever did before Accutane for the first 3-4 months. I'd usually have a 1wk "streak" of very clear skin but it didn't last long. Around 3 1/2 months my skin breakouts stopped in their tracks and I've had little breakouts from then on (currentl finishing month 5). You can only wish for the best!

It was all worth it.

Good Luck!

We'll, as I've stated earlier on this board, the Dermalogica Medicated Clearing Gel 2% SA made sure my initial breakout never occured. Used for about the 3-4 first weeks on 40mg, and just stopped using it when Accutane kicked in for full power, and i got slightly sensitive. I was COMPLETELY clear in my eight week.
