Dec 6, 2004
I started accutane over 2 months ago, I had sorta bad acne, no cysts, but it wasn't fun to look at either. I started at 40 mg a day, I had a pretty bad initial breakout, but after the end of my first month I had cleared up quite a bit. The second month nothing much happened. I am one third of the way into my third month. My derm upped my dosage to 80 for this month becuase nothing really happened in my second month. Still nothing has happened. My face isn't clearing up and I am starting to get very worried. If I don't wash my face at night I will explode the next day. Did it work this slow for anyone else. Should I ask to go up some more if I don't improve this month? Did anyone start clearing up in their 4th or 5th month. (My doc wants me on for 5.) Thanks.

By the way this is my regimen, I don't know if its any good or not.

Same for morning and night-
Wash face with Plexion face wash.
Use Benzaclin.
Moistize with cetaphil lotion.

I bought the cetaphil face wash becuase I thought my face would get very dry on this medicine, but it really hasn't. I used it every now and then the first two months, but now I never use it. I don't think it helps clear up and prevent breakouts as well as the Plexion does.

Anyways yea this sucks, any comments, suggestions, or anything like that would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
