has anyone NOT experienced bad side effects from accutane? in Prescription acne medications Posted August 3, 2006 I'm almost done my cycle of accutane. I was also scared all those horror stories everyone's been telling me about accutane. But i'm happy to say their not true for me. My skin is looking good. I only seem to get pimples now when i'm due for my period. I have some red marks, but nothing extreme, they seem to be fading daily. The only thing I dislike about accutane is the dry lips. They were very uncomfortable for me at times, sometimes they even bled, but rather then that I haven't got anything else. Into the third month I plurged quit abit, but it all cleared up in a week. I have nothing bad to say about accutane, just keep your lips moist!!!!
