    Low Dose Accutane Experience

    Gender : Female
    Age : 31 Years
    Skin Problem: Acne Rosacea only on Nose with oily skin.
    Treatment: Sotret 10 mg/day since last 2 months
    Checkups : once in 2 months
    Side effects: mild joint pain once in while, dry lips.

    Background : Suffering from acne rosacea since last 14 years(1999) and it actually taken away so called happy and beautiful days of my life. I have got beautiful face with heathy skin except my nose.
    Initially was taking antibiotics and it worked wonders for few years. Did IPL sessions with no help. Finally took accutane high dose 60mg/day for 3 months in 2005 and it made my skin more red.

    Did so much of research on low dose thing and finally decided to go for Low Dose and started with 10mg/day since last 2 months. I have to accept that this is the miracle drug, nothing dries up my oil glands and controls the breakouts like accutane. I am scared to come off accutane. I wish i could continue this on very low dose say 30mg/Week and maintain the rosacea.

    I would like to know the long term usage of accutane.
