    These are the main one that i got the first time round. Also a bit of mood swing and crying all the time. But everyone is different. My initial break out started about 1 week into it and then lasted till about 5th month of taking it

      I still haven't experienced any mood swings yet but because of my severe back pain my dermatologist said I might have to stop the treatment

      My doctor said that this much pain means I'm gonna have to stop the therapy, my lips too are extremely dry it's really bothering and kinda disgusting too.
