well as it says above it been about 74 days on accutane 40 mgs a day. well its helped some. still hasent stopped my acne i got 3/4 new ones last couple days. but those are the only ones that have come up last few weeks. still a pain because they take so long to heal and redmarks never go away. all oils been gone for weeks don't see how they pop up but oh well. i think im getting some hair loss that sucks. i need a haircut but hate going cause of my face uggg. im 23 and 155 pounds. my 3rd month derm app is the 18th wish this shit would stop popping up. mayb its due to the moisturizer i use its suppose to be oil free and derm recommended though. its nutrogena oil free moisturizer. well ill let u guys know how its going in a month or so, gl all later.

Hey im 21/female this is my 5th day on accutane 40/mg a day I have mild/moderate acne. The only thing is that ever since I've started I have been SO tired. I feel kinda dizzy. My skin is clearing out though No more oil! Did any one else feel tired on the accutane?

P.S. I have sensative skin the moisturizer that works for me is st. ives collegen and elastin facial moisturizer If your looking for something with an spf I love a Lotion called Proof Positive it is blue and it is easily absorbed into ur skin its available at Ulta Cosmetics.

Haircut solution for guys, shave your head at home. It's probably going to reduce the appearance of the hair loss too!

yeah. dry skin + pimples is the ultimate nightmare, I think. You can't do ANYTHING that won't worsen your situation in some way.
