    Re: Initial breakout on accutane

    No need to be scared. I started Accutane 3 months and I keep kicking myself because I didn't do it sooner. After 15 years of acne ,I have now had not one pimple. The initial breakout lasted about two weeks then one day there was no pimples. My side effects have been chapped lips(use plenty of chapstick), dry skin ( find a great moisterizer, I use Dermalogica Active Moist), and my nasal passages are dry. No aches, no depression, no hair loss but do recognize everyone is DIFFERENT.

    But overall I am Extremely pleased.

    Good Luck,
