Side Effects So Soon?

After 20 years of mild to moderate acne I finally decided to get serious about it.

I saw a dermatologist yesterday and took my first tablet last night. I am only taking one 20mg tablet a day and my dermatologist said she'd be happy if I was only taking two tablets a week.

So...one tablet in my system and 12 hours later I start having dizzy spells. An hour after that my neck starts aching. I took an ibuprofen because I'm pretty busy at work and needed to be able to concentrate and that seemed to help both. Then an hour later I felt sick.

Coincidence or linked? I've only taken one small tablet - I can't believe it can all be linked. Perhaps my brain is just linking them all together because I keep reading about the side effects. The mind is a powerful thing!

Has anyone else ever had side effects so soon? I know everyone's different but just curious.

I got side effects after two 40mg doses. Just drink lots of water because it really dehydrates you. I am dizzy in the mornings because of going the whole night without water. Good luck!
