    Day 1

    Hey, I'm on day 19 of 20mg a day of roaccutane. Keep lip balm handy and use a gentle face wash like cetaphil or simple face wash. Don't use any exfoliating washes! Good luck

    Roaccutane Day 19

    i feel fine still! spots are better. Although i still have some and new ones do form but not as many as before and skin is sensitive if you squeeze it and breaks.... not as greasy as it was before! i have another month of 20mg and then move onto 40mg before being boosted up to 60!! We will see.... always have my lip balm close at hand but my lips havent started falling off yet so thats a good start!!

    Opinions On Accutane?

    im really active as well which is what i was worried about, i run a lot. im meant to be running 20k in october but i have had some aches and pains tops of my knees and lower back. although that may be from working out a lot in the first place this week. im taking joint supplement vitamins as of today and will see how i go apart from that for the run. i have been lacking motivation to run,it is truly hard to say if it is the roaccutane though as i have had a cold. another side effect i found was

    Day 11 Accutane 20Mg Daily

    Day 11 of accutane. I have been so run down, I don't think it's accutanes fault though, just been too busy! My skin is still getting spots, they seem to go quickly though. My skin still looks terrible! Make up doesn't go on like it did before. My skin is dry and it looks cakey now! Who would have thought that the old grease would have helped so much! I hate those painful zits though that you can feel when you move your face. I think it is getting better, Who knows! I have no confidence with my

    Opinions On Accutane?

    Hey, I'm on day 11 of 20mg daily of roaccutane. Derm said I would be on 20mg the first 2 months and then 40mg the 3rd month and then 60mg the last month. I understand your frustration, acne is so annoying! I recently in the past 6-ish months developed painful cystic acne on my chin jawline and cheeks. Accutane does seem to have helped and stopped the acne on my chin. I'm still getting new spots,but they are smaller and go in a day. My lips are not too dry, i keep applying lip balm as i am aware

    Day 5 20Mg Roaccutane

    Day 5 of Roaccutane, no major side effects to report. I don't seem to have any new zits forming just old ones that are still there. My skin is sensitive as my pillow has left a mark on the middle of my nose which is still there and looks like a little cut. I'm not particularly dry at the moment. Waiting for that. Got dumped yesterday and still not depressed haha! Not much to report to be honest. Hope this works! I would love to have microdermaroller once i've finished the course of roaccutan

    Accutane Day 3

    Hi Everyone, I wanted to start a blog to share my experience of accutane. I am 24 and have had acne since I was about 13. I used Zineryt at first and that worked. I can't remember why but I stopped using it, Possibly because my spots had cleared up but after that it never worked again when I went back on it. I was prescribed dianette and that didn't work. I have recently been back on dianette for the past 3 months because my spots seemed to be the worst they have ever been. All on my chin and
