Been on Accutane for a week now

I have been on accutane for a week now and have expiereced basically no side effects. My lips are a tad dry but that's it. Is this unusual? I was on bactrum for a long time prior to going on accutane. My acne has not gotten any worse yet, is this because I still have some bactrum in my system? Or is it because I am on only 20mg? Does this mean that the accutane isn't working for me?

You've only been on a week plus you're on a low dose. I started on 40, went to 60 in my second month and am now at 80 in my third month. My lips got dry about a week and half into my first month. I didn't notice my skin getting very dry until the second month. I got an initial breakout around two or three weeks in.

Accutane should work and you will notice the effects. Just give it time.
