I'm Quitting Accutane (again) 37/m

So, with a heavy heart I've decided to quite Accutane (20mg) after just 7 days.

My reasons are for the following side effects:

Extremely dry/red face - My face looks and feels like I've got a really bad sunburn, it's really red.

Very sore / dry / bloodshot eyes - My vision is a little blurry already too.

Headaches - becoming worse every day.

I'm gutted that I'm quitting so early into treatment - I had started a log on here to document my changes and was feeling positive.

If I was to continue with this treatment there's no doubt that the side effects would get a lot worse - and also there's no guarantee that this will fix my skin anyway!!

So that's it, back to the drawing board - I'm just not willing to put myself through all this.

Feel free to ask me any questions, I will close my 'Accutane Log' and look into alternative options.
