Accutane Question

I've been on Accutane for a little over a week and everything is fine. No improvements yet but it's still early.

My lips are really dry but i expected that.

Another thing i didnt expect was the way i feel. I feel like i have no energy and it's 10 times harder to get up in the morning now a days.

Has anyone felt like this? I really dont want to tell the derm this because he might just take me off of it and i'd hate to go through this whole thing again later down the line.

Because acne will always irritate the hell out of my life.

Any thoughts?

Talking Re: Accutane Question

Hey Andrew

While i was surfing the net for information on accutane, i found a list of side effects, and one of them was a decrease in energy but it's suppost to subside. I would tell your doctor about it, open lines of communication are important when on any treatment, even if its a natural treatment

Cool Re: Accutane Question

Hey Andrew one more thing

I'm currently using acuzine, it a oral natural skin treatment, I'm only on day 4 but am hopful. I choose to go the natural way even though it takes longer ,but did you know it take the body twice as long to heal itself from any damage done. I'm not trying to discourage you from taking accutane because it has been the only solution for so many people.

I will keep you posted on my results with acuzine

Good luck
hope for the best
