I can't believe how fast and well Acutane is working for me. My skin is COMPLETELY different from when I started. Currently, I only have 1 active pimple on my forehead and a few little ones on my neck. For the first time in years i can wash my face, touch my skin, and not feel all those gross little bumps hiding underneath my skin!! Just that thought alone makes me incredibly happy.
There still are side effects, dry lips and skin, and I have rashes on my hands that itch but nothing I can't manage. Other than that I haven't experienced to harsh of side effects, except the occasional back pain or being really tired for no reason. I honestly think that once I stopped fretting and worrying all the time about this medication, thats when the side effects seemed to fade away.
All my blood work has come back perfect and my Derm told me she was very surprised about how well my body was taking it so this month I got bumped up from 60mg a day to 80mg. I'm hoping that means I won't have to take it as long.
I guess only time will tell.
Stick with it, no one said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth it.
