First Time Accutane user with mild but persistant acne and seb derm

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I'm 25 years old, over the past years i have been battling mild but persistant acne I have taking 3 months of antibiotics and had pretty much tried everything besides accutane, except 2 days ago I swallow my first pill. Today is my second day of treatment and I'm very scared. I'm a low dose: 20 mg x day. I weight about 54 kg, Idk what's in lb I guess around 110ish?  Overtime I swallow the pill I get really scared. I'm already dry per se because of my SD and i'm scared is going to get worse with accutane. I'm very depressed already but my derm said it was from the disease and really she had seen people with acne that got their spirit back once they were better. I was already clinically depressed before accutane and diagnosed with Borderline Personality disorder. I'm very apprehensive and upset easily, so starting accutane to me is being thorn between hoping this is what's going to help me get better and thinking this is just going to make everything worse.  I also want to know do I have to take BC pills while on it if i'm not being sexually active at  all? Like I was planning on taking them to tackle acne from other perspective if so which one would you recommend? Btw I'm from Mexico so getting BC is quite easy for me , I just have to and buy it. So am thanks and I'll keep you updated I guess
