Hi, my name is Rachel, and I just started accutane on Wednesday. I've started a journal to chart my progress (http://rdaccutane.blogspot.com/), if anyone is interested in sharing experiences or whatnot during the course. Also, I've read here and there that the generic brand causes more side effects. Does anyone have an article or anything saying so? If it does, I'm going to ask my derm to put me on the brand name stuff.
