Well, I'm definately getting pretty excited about my skin. I have no pimples right now. All I have are the red marks and some rolling scars on my cheeks which I believe will go away. I'm on my third month of Accutane. I was on 80 ml last month, but I got pretty bad lower back pain so my dermatologist lowered my dose back to 40. My back is feeling a little bit better.

Two months left of accutane

Cool, I'm glad it has worked for you! Hey, just out of curiosity, what kind of back pain is it? I've never taken accutane, however, I've known several other people who have, and none of them said a thing about back pain....is it like crampy back pain, or the kind of pain similar to when you wake up with a sore back from sleeping in an awkward position?

Looks great -- congratulations!!! I'm starting to get te back pain too, as well as some in my knee. Turbojet, at least for me it's more like the second kind you describe -- it's in the joints, not the muscles. I find that about 10 minutes of yoga stretches in the morning does wonders. Haven't found anything to help with the achy knee yet though :( Dodo, hope your fabulous results continue! And that they rub off on me! (I'm on day 25 of 40 mg, slooooooooowly starting to see some results).

My knees started hurting a little bit since I started on accutane. My derm says it is pretty normal. Your skin is starting to look great! Looking forward to see more pictures of you. :(
