  1. Hey guys! I have a very quick question. If I were to miss 880 mg of Accutane, would it really matter? I'm on my tenth month, and have complete 11,120 mg out of the required 12,000 mg for my weight, etc. I've been starting to feel extremely depressed, my joints are killing me to the point I can't even fence anymore, my lipids and everything else is in the high 300's, and I've developed an irregular heartbeat.

My cysts are really going down. But, as any change in my life, there comes a consequence: Developing a skin care routine.

If you don't know what that means, it's simply an eight dollar way of saying that I have cysts growing on my face that just WON'T GO AWAY. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
