8th day: Hi, I just started my Accutane treatment. I'm 20 years old and I have moderate/severe acne. I started getting it in senior year of high school and had it under control w/ Dan's regimen until the middle of my 3rd year of college. I tried everything--antiboitics, salicylic acid, face masks, etc. It did not go away. I'm having an IB, which are like 5-10 new pimps since I started taking it. A couple of blackheads. So far so good :)

Side effects: dried lips, tired eyes, very mild joint pain (in my lower back) and muscle soreness--which is very little considering that I lift HEAVY weights (I squat 300lbs and bench 240lbs). Little to no knee pain (I run 2 miles 3 days a week). A little more irritable than usual and mild depression (which I attribute to studying for the LSATs this incoming June and hard quarter) Sore throat.

I'll write again in a couple of days. Night!
