When should accutaine start working?

Hey, I've been on accutaine for nearly 2 months. When should it start working?? I mean, I started noticing minor changes only after a week, but now, it seems like It's been the same. I have had like extremely dry and cracked lips as well as dry skin for like, my whole treatment. And my eyes hae also been very dry. When should I start seeing results? Or will I have to wait until I've taken it for the whole 6 months?? Tuesday I am going to the doctor for my monthly checkup (derm) and to get my blood work done, I guess I can ask her then, but I was wondering if you guys who've taken accutaine in the past have had any experiences like mine. Well, thanks for you help!

Re: When should accutaine start working?

Everybody reacts differently, as for me right off the bat my skin became very dry and my acne started to disappear. Unfortunately I am in week 6 right now and I am starting to break out again. I am not getting frustrated though because almost everybody I know has had great permanent results from accutane so I am just going to stick it out. What dosage does your derm have you on, I think a lot of it depends on your dosage, I have been taking 80 mg a day. Good Luck!

I started noticing changes right away, and then broke out a little after my dose was raised at month 2. Now I am starting month 3, and I am clear! It is amazing!
