  1. Im so upset with myself for having these pains. My derm told me to go back to 20 Mg when I told her I could barely walk the other day. Some people have told me to hang in there and deal with the pains. But I like to be active and couldn't even do yoga anymore because of the back and heel pain. I'm just hoping not to be on this for many months, I have to drink water every 30 minutes or my mouth gets really dry. I really think the medication is helping, but now I see small indentations on
  2. I'm on day 8th of accutane, though it seems like it's been an eternity. I can't wait to be over with this. So far no bad side effects, but yesterday I had diarreah again and woke up with lower abdominal pain, close to my ovaries, It felt similar to when I get my period. really weird. I went to the doctor just in case, it might be a bladder infecition she said. Other than that, my skin is as oily as ever, just really sensitive today, like kind of itchy, I've gotten a few pimples but they are
  3. With 20 mg Isotretinoin, is it possible to clear your skin up very quickly that lasts for a day to a week? It doesn't matter if the skin gets worse again AFTER that, the main concern is having clear sign for this short period of time, such as for a formal occasion where you need to look your best Can you safely up the Accutane dosage to achieve this?
  4. Hey all! I was curious about people's experience with how long accutane took to dry up oily skin. I'm only 5 days into accutane [called myorisan, the generic covered by my insurance] and I already have less oil on my face, which is great! But, I'm still a bit 'dewy' though in my problem areas, like my forehead...how long does accutane take to really dry these up? (I should note I'm on 20mg and experiencing zero side effects, so I'm reluctant to mess with anything and up my dosage.) Thanks.
