Photos, Coming up to end of month 2. Questions. Look?

Recommended Posts

Male, 135 lb, 5'11

I am almost done with my month two on the generic Accutane. I started out at 40 mg/day for a month. 2nd month, 80 mg/day for the first half and now on the second half I have been 80 mg/day alternating every other to 120 mg/day.

Here are some photos of me up to this point. Nothing is looking better to me.

[attachmentid=2969][attachmentid=2970]

Could it be that accutane does not work for me?

Is my dose too high?

Thoughts, encouragment, similar problems?

much love.

ps. yes, i know i need a haircut.

i've never taken Accutane, but from reading many of the logs on here i'd say that you have nothing to worry about. Many of them say that it takes 4 months to clear. Good luck mate.

you look like the lead singer of Thursday, Geoff Rickley aka my idol haha well heres some bit of advice.

i asked my derm how long it would take to see improvement and he said usually within the 3rd or 4th month. he also said that you must have clear skin for 3 months before stopping the accutane treatment.so that leaves 6-7 months total. ahh it is better than never though...
