I have been on Accutane 3 times in my life...I'm now 25 years old. My acne is mild/moderate. My derm. said that I have severely oily skin and there is a special way to take accutane and it will not only help your acne, but will dramatically decrease the side affects as well.
I started taking 40mg of accutane once every two weeks. Once I was clear I now take it once every month. I have zero side dry lips/eyes, etc. Not only does this work VERY well, but the accutane packs last a lot longer. I have over a years supply left now.
What I would reccomend is that all accutane users take it everyday/every other day until you get clear...then slowly cut back to once/week to every other week and so on. My doctor did say you have to at least take it once per month to maintain results.
The vitamin A in the accutane takes a long time to rid your system and that's why it works.

This should also help with the cost of accutane as don't have to buy as much so often.

Hope this helps you all out there on accutane.
