Don't be to worried. I completed a 4 month course of Roaccutane about 2 months ago and I never did get the 'initial breakout'. Keep with it. It truly was a miracle drug for me. I completely clear now.

Day 7

Week 1 :)

My lips are definately chapped now, and im staring to get very minor stomach pains, and some minor headaches, they seem to come and go randomly, but usually right after i wake up. Im starting to see more the the redness around my face that makes me look like a red and white raccoon. Im starting to get a worsening cysts on my right and left jawline. 2 cysts each on both my cheeks. Its weird how they're almost parallel. And a wholee bunch of small pimples all over my face. Do i need SPF lotion/ sunscreen for my face beacuse the medication says to avoid ultraviolet light? but my skin is really oily/ itchy, and if i put more lotion wouldn't it get more oily? and i'll have to wash it all off. If anyone reads this, please help! :)

Day 12

40mg

Im starting to feel alot drier. I don't feel like i have to wash my face every three hours, which is a blessing. My back is seriously killing me though, everytime i switch positions when i sleep, i get these back spasm, o and when i bend down to wash my face, its really hard to get back up. damn i have those crater scars. those are pretty much undoable right? i noticed today my acne is not so much like mountains, they're more flatter today, which is a good. oo and no nose bleeds

side effects.

sore back

somewhat chapped lips

If it's any consolation, my initial breakout started to subside after 12 days (started on day 2 and peaked on day 14). I'm now on day 21 and I'm still breaking out, but they are getting fewer and smaller. I hope this trend continues!

sun is bad for several acne , you should use spf60 or higher lotion , all the fucking days no matter what.

Day 15

40 mg

Thanks Vanity. Lol i guess i seem all angry and depressed, but its been mostly whats been happening around me. Lately, i haven't been focusing so much on my face like i did before, even if i'm having a crazy breakout! i guess its cause no one talks about it. I have been touching my face though. its so damn itchy and fun too peel the little skins! i'll try not to though, im already seeing some new scars. So i got some carmex for my lips, its alright, it helps a bit, but gets really oily/warm after a while.

I'm on day 8 and my lower back is killing me! Do you think it will get better soon? If this is the side effects from 8 days then I cant imagine what half a year would do to my body, screwy roaccutane!

Day 21

40 mg

I guess i'm updating b/c i've recently been getting a few new symptoms. I'm still breaking out alot around my jawline, and now on my cheeks, but still its not bothering me too much. Its pretty bad, and red, but i guess i just don't have time to worry about it. i'm still touching my face every 5 minutes, and i've been trying to change that habit. o yea this man asked me why i have acne... :snooty: i hate when people ask those kind of stupid questions. why do you have so much acne? why are you breaking out so muchh..? i don't kknow you dickweeds, why do you have brown eyes:evil: anyways. today especially my lips weren't THAT dry. i think i only had to put some carmex on 2ice the whole day. my back is also not soar too much. I stopped producing alot of oil, and i just now noticed, i didn't feel that nasty oily feeling around my face every 3 hours. I havn't washed my hair in 3 days :shock: lol but its not even oily, its really dry and non smelly. i started to break out on my back a little, a few small pimples, and a few cysts here and there. my arms, and thighs feel really dry/ itchy, it stings sometimes. lol and i got an assne -__-''

i don't know if this is gonna work, but here's two pictures. the lighter picture with less color is day 7 & the brighter one, w/ more color is today (day 21)

day 41

40 mg.

havn't updated in a while. this forum really does bring out the emo. i know its good to be open and all, but whenever i write in this i get all whiny and complainy. its weird because in reality, i don't complain that much about my acne, even when im getting the biggest breakouts. i'll have those days where i get sad cause someone mentions my acne, but its totally not a big deal and its really rare someone brings it up. and when they do its gonna be someone your close to so it doesn't really matter. i just didn't want to scare people who are thinking of going on accutane. anyways, nothings really new. i broke out like crazy for the past few weeks/days but now it seems to be getting a little better? i'll update later on pictures. right now my jaw is getting better a little, my cheeks bumpy, forehead is not bad, chin and upper lip is breaking out a bit. i popped some zits, i feel soo bad -__-. has anyone ever gotten out of the shower and had and open scabish/pimple that oozes blood? i don't know what to do.

symptoms

olier skin???

few back pains

chapped lips ofcourse

dry skin on arms/neck/legs

Day 56

i think i've gotten a little better. not as big cyst, just alot of medium sized ones. my skin is very dry, and my arms are really weird! the dryness is not just dry/no moisture, but scabby. ii don't know if its a regular, but just noting on it. lips have gotten less irratable, or no i've been controlling it more with some carmex.

symptoms

aching back

lips chapped

arms and neck dry.
