    Wow, congratulations! Looks like you are clearing really well for one month in! :D Is your dose the same for month 2? Thanks for posting, your progress gives me hope....I am on day 17 (female in my 30's) of 40mg and your skin reminds me of mine as far as location of breakouts, etc.

    Also, I noticed your comment on one of your pics that said before your skin turned for the second time.....is this your second course?

    Hey thanks! No, this is not my second course of accutane. It's my first try with this amazing drug. Somehow my cystic acne disappeared (for the most part) during my pregnancy and remained light to nonexistant after my daughter was born (4 years ago.) I was on Yazmin following that pregnancy and I guess that had something to do with keeping the acne away. However, I quit taking Yazmin February this year and got pregnant again in March but, unfortunately, suffered a miscarriage. After the miscarriage my skin went from pretty normal to the worst it's ever been (as you can see in my before pics). It's been rough but I'm so glad this drug is available. My doc upped my dosage to 60 mg which I started on Tuesday.

    You are definitely clearing from looking at your earlier pictures, looks like the redness has faded and they are no longer inflamed, you are lucky it doesnt look like you will scar at all. Btw you are very pretty.

    Good luck!
