Low dose Accutane success!!!

Hi, I want to share my experience of my low dose accutane treatment.

Although I havent finished my course, it is day 44, i am completely clear!!!

I didn't have severe acne. my concern was mostly whiteheads, and since it was not very bad I had tried proactive,minocycline, retin A, B5, but nothing cleard my face. and I was getting scarred pores.

so after thinking much about the side affects, I decided to take accutane.

Since Accutane is not common at all here in Japan, it was very hard to find a doctor who can perscribe me the drug. i went to a few dermatalogists and they didn't have the drug not even for severe cases.

Finally I found one doctor who can perscribe me accutane.

I started taking 10mg a day on January 1st and the result has been amazing!!! I was worried about the side effects but they are not bad at all since it is only 10mg a day.

I think low dose accutane is very effective for mild acne without severe side effects and I wish I had taken it sooner.

I said whiteheads but I meant small pimples and sometimes red ones.

but I never got cystic scne
