My doctor sugested that dose,my 1st treatment was 40 then 60mg towards the end, he said a lower dose for a longer duration, for less shock to body, side effects and felt it would work better, we"l see. This is day 4 and my exsisting acne is clearing up,i already feel less oily and alittle dryness but no chapped lips or dryness of nose, so far so good. I will post again in couple days

Re: Accutane 2nd treatment

Day 7, well i had 3 new miedium size break outs (were I normally have them) and some redish blotchy patchs but skin doesnt feel real dry, kinda weird but i think this is a normal reaction at 1st. I cleanse w/ dial soap and at nite use metro gel or retin-a for spot treatments and in am, i cleanse w/ dial soap , then use lubriderm lotion for moisturizer and some tinted clearisil acne cream, its seems to help dry them up plus hide the acne some as well. So thats the progress and if anyone has any comments i would love to hear from you
Thank you
