Give or take month 6 of accutane. Such a LONG time but the results were finally worth. I get compliments on my skin from people who I haven't seen it years. They were hesitant to keep me on as long as they did but the risks outweighed the benefits. I never got achy, depressed, sick or any of the side effects. Except for CRAZY chapped lips, but its winter too. Hopefully when I'm off it I'll STAY CLEAR. Wish me luck and I know everyone on it will clear up nicely!!
