  1. hi everyone, im currently on my 11th week of accutane. i did 2months on 10mg perday and the last 3 weeks im on 20mg perday. i started off with moderate acne. the main problem that is confusing me is how much my skin fluctuates... first couple of weeks i cleared up then i experienced the dreaded IB and that lasted for about 2 weeks. i think it was on my 8th week that i started to actually clear up. and it was going really well for about 3 weeks, i was still getting spots but very few (mainly un

  5. If you have 10mg tablets take one everyday. If you only have 20mg tablets take one every second day. Probably minimal or no difference. ok thanks jimmy:)

TRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH! the side effects are minimal and well worth it

  9. im about to start low dose accutane (20mg every otehr day) i have mild/moderate acne. my question is, is it ok to take protein shakes whilst on accutane or even just with acne? will it make it worse or it will have no effect what so ever?
  10. hi flem85 thanks for the good infomation! one last question i really need to know, is taking 10mg per day the same as taking 20mg every other day? will it be EXACTLY the same benefits and side effects? if not which 1 is better to do? i wud prefer the 20mg every other day but will do which ever will work the best.. thanks!!!!! so the dry lips /face just bothers the individual?? doesnt really look too bad if moisturised well? if so thats really good news xD

  14. i wouldn't suggest taking 'catch up' pills. i missed 2 weeks worth of accutane doses because of insurance issues since none of the insurance companies available to me wanted to cover it! i had eczema on the backs of my hands during my course of accutane. my lips were dry and peeling. my contact lenses were really bothersome so for the most of my course i just kept my glasses on. sometimes my joints would feel very achy and tight. i noticed a drastic difference with my overall skin tone and the d
