A week on 20mg Accutane, no dryness?

Recommended Posts

I've been taking 20mg of Accutane for 7days and haven't noticed any dryness??

My lips feel like normal.

Skin is pretty good at the moment, but should I be seeing dryness by now?

Increasing to 40mg daily after another week.

Thanks

I didn't notice any serious dryness until just recently. It is my fourth month and I just got bumped up to 60mg/day. Wait till you get to the 40mg and see if you are still complaining about a lack of dryness.

I had dryness right away... mainly my lips for the first few days then my face joined in. I have been on 60mg since the beginning tho... and in a week will be starting 70mg

The intial breakout came within a few days and it was bad... any active acne I had on my face got like 10x worse and then more came about... it has taken 3 weeks to recover from that... I am in the 4th week right now and someone told me today that they think my face is getting better.

But it is diff for everyone! best of luck to ya!
