How long till side effects fade...?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

In anticipation of ending my accutane course, I'm wondering how long I will have to wait before everything goes back to normal- skin, lips, eyes, etc. Anyone with experience? berry

During my course, I took two months off in the middle of my treatment. My skin was still breaking out at that point so, needless to say, my skin didn’t clear. My lips became significantly less chapped within two weeks. My urine went back to it’s normal color within one week. My eyes were never really dry.

Currently, I’ve been off of Accutane for about three weeks - - without consulting my doctor because I want to conceive by Summer. My skin is clear this time around and the results after three weeks are “I can wear lipstick!�; dry skin; red marks are less apparent; I am less thirsty.

I hope this information helps a little bit. I know there are several members who will be able to help you out a lot more.

Good luck and clear skin to you!
