Re: Accutane really work this fast!!!!!!!!!!!

Your post always make me giggle because you are so fired up! A postive attitude will def help while on accutane. Everything you are experiencing is completely normal. You will continue to cycle through breakouts and clear periods during your treatment. Fatigue is common so just be sure to get some exercise every day if you can this has helped me with feeling so tired. In my opinion if you keep your diet clean and get enough sleep you will see better results, your body isn't burdened with processing all the bad stuff in your diet or the effects of sleep deprivation so it can focus on process the accutane in a more efficent manner. I went through the same thing, sounds like you are right on track!

Re: Accutane really work this fast!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just been upped to 80 m/g and had the same breakout I had on 40 m/g. If the treatment continues the way is has been I would recommend it to anyone.

Has it cleared anyone up 100% though?
