Starting Accutane ( For The Second Time)

Recommended Posts

I am an 18 year old female, who will be starting accutane for the second time next month. I am very excited but also nervous. Now before everyone asks, my acne is mild but very persistent. Half the problem is my issues with messing with my skin. I overwash, pick, etc. It's horrible. Thats probably how my acne came back anyway. The first time I went on it (2 years ago) my entire face purged itself of everything in it and within a 6 month course of 10, 20, then 30 mg I had completley clear skin ( minus some minor scarring ) but I am so excited to be starting again and to regain my confidence. Waiting is the hardest part but I will try and keep a monthly progress log since I didnt do such a good job last time, I am debating posting pics. I will be on a 40 mg to start with 6 month course, and my dosage may increase as my treatment continues. FIngers crossed for a miracle!

Congrats on starting accutane...again. I myself am a third timer that has had good results in the past. Going through my IB and it SUCKS! But definitely looking ahead for the future! Hope to see your log in the future and good luck!

Hi smile.png It's a pity that it didn't work out as you may have hoped first time. There is one thing though, at least this time you know about what to expect with regards to side effects and so on. Here's hoping a second course is enough to do the trick, long term. Best of luck! smile.png
