4 Months On Low Dose Accutane, Still Oily

Recommended Posts

I'm a 180 lbs 6 foot male, I've been taking 10mg accutane for about 6 months.

It has helped a bit but I am still oily.

I've noticed my sebum is even waxier and thicker than ever before.

I've even noticed my scalp is oilier than ever before.

I know 10mg is basically minimal and I have no sides, I am stepping up to 20mg then higher if needed.

I wonder if anyone noticed extra thick sebum in relation to accutane, either during or after.

10mg is low but I would think after 6 months you should have dried up by now!

I am on 20mg a day and I experienced a bucket load of oil in the first couple of weeks before it finally decreased and stopped.

Maybe trial a month on 20mg and see how you go.
