I remember popping my first accutane. There was no Internet back then. I just had to get on with it. Lol. Just look after yourself. Eat well drink plenty water. Avoid alcohol, rest. Give yourself nice treats. It can make you feel like you have flu. Sore bones etc but that's a known side effect. Get some good lip balm for your lips and nose, get artificial tears for your eyes if they feel dry. If anything bothers you go straight back to your doctor or pharmacist for advice. Good luck!

Ps if your in pain don't be buying pills off the Internet. Your doctor will advise you what to do. You are putting your body through a regime, take care of it.

I didn't have this. Honestly though have you ever looked at the the effects for paracetamol or ibuprofen? You probably wouldn't take it if you thought you would get all the side affects.
