Finally prescribed roaccutane

Recommended Posts

I'm a year away from being 40 and since having my children (now 7 and 2) my skin has been breaking out. After a year and a half of trying erythromycin and isotrexin I have been prescribed roaccutane and just waiting on blood test results coming back. When I went to the derm my skin was fairly clear and she only gave me it as the last derm I saw (her boss) had recommended it.

I have been reading a lot of the accutane posts and I am not sure what to expect in terms of IB. I am still going to be taking erythromycin and reducing it so that after a month or so I will be off it and I hope that might stop me breaking out worse than I am now.

It would be great to hear any similar experiences or advice. A lot of the posts I.ve read have had really good input.

expect more pimples because you will breakout all at once, if your that scared of an IB, is your acne bad enough to take accutane?
