I'm not sure what the doxycycline contains, but you need to be careful not to take additional Vitamin A while on Accutane. Accutane is a LARGE dose of Vitamin A and taking any more can be harmful to your body.

I was told to expect early breakouts on Accutane (it's getting the old stuff "out of your system" to make way for clear skin).

Not sure what to suggest about all the dry skin you will face. It's one of the small things you have to suffer through for good skin in the long run! My derm gave me lip balm and moisturizers to use...maybe ask him what he recommends?

Good luck!
