10 weeks plus! don't expect miracles straight away

The first few weeks were pretty tough and my acne actually got worse.

Although everybody experiences accutane differently and for the lucky few improvements are noticeable straight away.

good luck

i think this depends on what your doing as well as accutane, what dose etc. It will be hard to get an accurate poll here.

for example. some may have taken the erythromycin antibiotic along with low dose accutane for a month or 2 before upping to 40/60mg. They may have also used a slim scraping of bp gel to minimise the initial and used a specific type of cleanser at the same time.

I think if you ditch all other meds/topicals and just go hardcore 80mg straight from the off, things are gonna get hella worse before they get better. Patience is the key.... start low, do other things to control the bacteria on your skin for the first month or 2 also..
