I'm on day 8th of accutane, though it seems like it's been an eternity. I can't wait to be over with this. So far no bad side effects, but yesterday I had diarreah again and woke up with lower abdominal pain, close to my ovaries, It felt similar to when I get my period. really weird. I went to the doctor just in case, it might be a bladder infecition she said.
Other than that, my skin is as oily as ever, just really sensitive today, like kind of itchy, I've gotten a few pimples but they are small.
Also, some muscle pains, specially close to my elbows, very weird. I also talked to someone who took 10 mg/3 times a week for 6 months and her acne is gone! her acne was mild-moderate like mine.
maybe doctors are giving people higher doses than we need???
