Hi guys.. I started roaccutane last wednesday and must admit Im dreading the side effects! Ive been a sufferer of acne since 11 years old(now 18) and have tried EVERYTHING! (including antibiotics, the pill ect). Im willing to soldier through the side effects but was wondering wether I will actually get any this month with being on such a low dosage of 20mg? Also, does everyone get that ‘initial breakout’, i start my Alevel exams in less than two weeks and could really do without it!
My derm has also told me that because of my weight i will only be going up to 50mg – im scared that this is still low and will consequently result in my acne reappearing in the future? Is this the case?
Would really like some knowlege on these questions! Hope your all finding your course of treatment managable!
