Two Weeks Off Accutane After First Month?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

So I've been on my second round of Accutane (40mg/day +Vitimin E/BC) for one month now. I am seeing pretty nice improvement, which is unfortunately accompanied by severe lower back pain, extremely dry skin, and irritability. However, my dermatologist is taking a vacation and I won't be able to get my second month worth of pills util then. I run out in four days.

I'm so so so sooo scared that my skin will relapse, since I have been on it for merely a month. After all the emotional damage acne has done to me, I don't think I would be capable of coping with another initial breakout or have my skin go back to the way it was a month ago.

Does anyone have any advice, or brutal honesty for me? I thought about splitting my pills up and only taking them every other day, or third day so that is will remain in my system. I know it's only two weeks, but still. I'm really worried.

Any advice?.. ):
