Why Is My Face Not Getting Any Dryer On Accutane?

hey ive been taking accutane for like a month now on 50mg a day i weigh 58kg, my face has become a lot less oily but not to the extent of what i was expecting and now it seems my face is getting slightly oilier again... is this normal? and i think im definately going through my IB, my face did clear up and become smoother for a while and now its just looks like shit...

I was wondering the same thing. The oil on my face definitely dried up and has not gotten any oiler but when I tried retina-a or what ever its called before accutane that stuff dried my face wayyyy more.

Wait till second month it will get dryer and you will se by end of month 3 your face will be like Sahara. Same with me first month it seemed like everyhting was going to be clear and then after that month whiteheads and stuff started to appear and blackheads started to purge but by the end of month 2 it will start to seetle down. Be patient my friend and be strong.

Yeah, I'm on it right now. I'd have to look at a calendar but somewhere around ~50 days.
