Hi - I finished a 5 month course of Accutane - my dose remained the same from start to finish - 80 mg per day. I took Accutane for mild-to-moderate acne after trying everything else (I am 26). My initial breakout was minor - - and only lasted a week or two. Definitely use the Aquaphor and I found I needed to stop wearing my contact lenses and use eye drops. I used a really gentle cleanser - like Dove cloths or Purpose. You will definitely need a good sunscreen. My skin got really flaky very quickly so I used an AHA to keep my skin moisturized and found that regular moisturizers didn't work for me (I used Aqua Glycolic Face Cream). As far as drinking goes, I did continue to drink while on Accutane even though it's not advised. I didn't have any problems but didn't drink all that much. Good luck - my results have been amazing!
