a few days ago i took my last accutane pill, i was on the drug for a full 22 weeks at a dose range of 40-60 mg…i originally had moderate to severe acne mostly concentrated on my face, i would get cysts all the time…i guess i can say accutane has done a great job on me so far as now i am left with 1 tiny pimple and a few dry patches of skin…now i hope that no more new breakouts will occur so that all my red spots from previous acne can fade

today is day 4 of the post accutane era, my skin is still dry and oil free, i think my lips are less dry but i still apply vaseline to them, my body is still sore when i move around hopefully that will improve over the next few weeks

any others who have just finished their course? feel free to post it in here
