    1 month off accutane update

    I finished up my accutane about a month ago, and i must say i would recommend to anyone to give it a try. the only side effects i experienced were dry lips and face. the first week or so i had mild back aches but they were gone by week 3. Over my course on the accutane my acne improved slowly, and even when i finished i had gotten a few pimples. After I went off the doctor put me on tazorac gel. I got 2 or three pimples the second week, and thought it was all going to come back. But i haven't had one pimple on my face since. I still think it will come back eventually but the accutane has defenetly helped.

    What I'm saying is two things:

    For those who are considering accutane, i would defenitely recommend it and not get overly worried about side effects.

    Second, for those on accutane, don't get down if your still getting acne even in your final months and weeks, my derm said most people get better after their accutane cycle.

    What dosage were you on and for how long? Didn't you have any hair thinning/loss? 'cuz that's the only side effect i'm worried about.
