  1. Just a quick question to find out if anyone's accutane dosage was reduced instead of increased after 1st/2nd month? I have been on 40mg/day for two months and now have been told to decrease to 20mg/day. From the many posts I've read here, people usually have their dosage increased towards their final months so it is just really weird for my case. There have been hardly no improvements at all with the ance after the horrible initial flareup so I can't see why decreasing the dosage would help wi
  2. Thanks all. Its nice to be reading everyone's log too, to get to see what all your experiences are. I guess I was trying to find out that if you do use moisturiser, do you put it over the acne legions as well or avoid them?

  5. You finally decided to go on 'tane. Hope it work great for you. As you know, I'm on my 20th day now and and I had an initial breakout after a week and I'm still getting new cysts.

This breakout never happened the last time I took the drug but maybe this time my acne is a lot worse. Keep updating. Cheers.

    What was the outcome of the dermatologist consult? And what treatment are you on now? I've actually got an appointment with my derm tomorrow and hopefully to go on roaccutane.
