hey guys...i have finally decided to take roaccutane after months of procrastination.i have a blood test on tues..and shd start soon after that.its a really low dose though.20mg every other day cause my acne is kinda mild.but i've been breaking out recently.hopefully on such a dose i may be lucky enuff to skip the initial flare-up.i'm just really frightened of the side effects though cause i'm in uni now and my studies are like super impt. dont wanna feel down or get headaches caused by the tane cause this wld definitely affect my studying pattern.but acne is already affecting it big time so i guess its time for me to take this leap.
i'll keep you guys updated on my progress....and i'll keep praying to God for all of us.

Re: roaccutane

Please keep us updated. I'm really interested in how a low dose program works.
My daughter is also in college and is considering accutane, but has the same concerns you do.

Re: roaccutane

Good luck and I hope that it works out for you! I took Accutaine about 2 years ago, and I'm on my second treatment now just to clear up the rest of it.. and it works WONDERS. Good luck!

Good luck Bimbotica. I was on accutane and have been off for almost a year and have never felt better in my life. Keep us updated on your progress!
