  1. Hello everyone! I'm about to start my 2nd course of accutane and I figured I might as well keep a log of my progress. I suppose I should start this off by saying I don't really need to take accutane again. Before my first course I had moderate to severe acne and definitely needed to take it, but the first course cleared me up nicely after being on it for roughly 6 months and for a while after finishing I didn't break out at all and everything was good. That was 2 years ago. Since then my acne ha
  2. fml. I wrote this big long post and then accidentally hit refresh. Oh well long story short its day idk! I'm on like month four... Or maybe five... Idk but MY HAIR IS CURLY and apparently that's a thing on accutane and no one in my family has curly hair so it has to be the accutane... But I don't really care... I just gotta rock what I got! And I can do that... But be warned! If you have a strange hatred of curly hair than accutane might not be the best option to consider!
  3. I know what you mean about the cuts! And does it take forever for them to go away? It's like that for me... Also throughout the course (I'm about 4 1/2 months in) I've had back pain but recently it's gotten really bad! Do you get back pain? And wow you're only getting bumped up to 40 mgs? That's the level I started at! And I've been on 60 mgs for the past 2 and I still am this month... And my Dr said that was a little bit below the usual amount(?) weird... But next month she said she might bump
