  1. Sounds like my story. I started April 9; I'm on 40mg/day for the first month.
  2. I'm actually taking its generic equivalent Amnesteem. I've been put on a 40mg daily dose for the first month. It's the fourth day and I am anticipating those nasty side effects. When do they usually appear during the course of treatment?
  3. I'm going to start it soon. I am wondering how many times a month one has to go in for checkups (either for blood tests or just visits) while on accutane treatment.
  4. Thanks all for this valuable information. I am going to check out ehealthinsurance.com. I am quite a novice when it comes to insurance so any information would be valuable.

  9. Thanks for the info. Is it proper to request a certain treatment? I know this guy is supposed to be an "expert" but I really don't want to spend time/money exhausting lesser treatments that may not be as effective.
  10. I am almost 21, and I've had moderate acne for 6 years now. The acne is increasingly painful (red bumps) and common. White heads appear often too. I have blackheads from my nose and large pores under my eyes. Red marks are left after acne appears. These usually fade, but it is a constant cycle.
