  2. Yes it is normal for things like cholesterol to increase while on Accutane. You don't have to be crazy about your diet or anything, just make sure you fast the night before your blood test.

I didn't really experience any horrible side effects other than dryness...everywhere! The lips are definitely the worst but you get used to having chapstick on you at
  7. I like to use Cetaphil moisturizing cream, it works really well and is non-comedogenic so it won't break you out more. I have heard that CeraVe is good as well.
  8. So I just finished my first week of Accutane... today being my 8th day. I really broke out these past couple days, just pimples forming everywhere you could imagine. I guess it's good that I am reacting to the medicine at least.

I have been moisturizing pretty well so my skin isn't that flaky right now. I am so tempted to pop all my white heads but I
  9. Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to the forums and just got prescribed Accutane so I thought I'd share my experiences just as many of you do. I probably won't post every day, but I'll try to update at least once a week. Okay a little background information: My name is Max, I'm a college student in northern Arizona and I'm 18 (almost 19) years old. In the past I've tried tetracycline and topical treatments such as Retin-A, however never achieved the results I wanted. A couple years later I finally wa
