I finally found a dermatologist who would prescribe accutane for me and will start taking it tomorrow. I'm so relieved after using stuff that doesn't really work for years. But still I'll feel much better when this is all over. Hopefully I won't experience any of the side-effects and I'm not looking forward to it if I do. Anyways, I'll be on 40mg for the first month and then go to 80.
I was wondering...
Can I drink alcohol at all during the 5 months I am on accutane? I forgot to ask the doctor and he hasn't returned my call.
What products are recommended for dry lips and eyes. Right now I have some regular chapstick and some Visine.
What type of cleanser should I use? I am currently using neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser.
Would appreciate any suggestions.
Can I drink alcohol at all during the 5 months I am on accutane? Yes, but dont over do it. What products are recommended for dry lips and eyes. Aquaphor is good for the lips. For eyes any lubricating drops is good.What type of cleanser should I use? Probably anything that has the name Cetaphil.

I still drink alcohol while on accutane but I never overdo it. I limit myself to no more than 3 drinks. I use visine for my eyes (I wear contacts and it's a little hard to deal with them because my eyes are pretty dry but visine really helps). For my lips I use shea butter lip balm from Bath and Body Works. Before I go to bed, I slather vasaline on my lips, it helps a lot. I use cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer and also use the moisturizer on my arms because they've gotten so dry in the past month.

I hope you'll be as happy with accutane as I have been. Good luck! :)
