Started Accutane Today

Recommended Posts

32 year old male who just popped the first pill tonite. A bit scared but I have complete faith this battle with my forehead acne will be gone in 5 months. Starting on 20mg becuase all I have are a few red bumps on my forehead and nowhere else so my doctor things this 20mg for a few months will do the trick.... I hope this works because I have spent thousands of dollars on red/blue light therapy/ minocycline/solodyn/isolaz/peel/retin a/azelax/sulfur agents/ etc etc....... At 32 years old I should have to deal with this but everyone in my family never had acne... Why me? Anyway, I would appreciate a little following or some words of encouragement because I'm a bit nervous.....

Good luck! I'm on 20mg too and I am on my 3rd week now. If you're worried about the side effects, then don't worry too much. The most common side effects are dry lips and dry skin (face). surprised.gif
