Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all, 

it's been now 15 days that i'm taking accutane 10mg, 2xdaily and i don't feel any improvement as i still get some pimples and i have this big "thing" i don't know how to call it, but its like you know, a big pimple of oil and after 15 days now it's not going ! is there any problem ?

can you guys tell me why my skin is becoming like this, exceptthe dry lips that i'm dealing with it. 

is there any foods to avoid while taking accutane ?

my first week was bad, i had initial breakout and many pimples poped out and were painfuly, but now i get less than before anyway.

i'll appreciate your responses and may god get me rid of this acne.

    im on raccutane too, im on a 6 months course started at the begining of the year, im on the 20mg (3 a day) so 60mg a day which is the highest possible dose, and my doctor told me it gets worse before it gets better, i didnt notice an improvment untill a few days ago, sadly its a slow and painful process but stick with itsmile its worth it!
