Hello all! I documented pieces of my first experience with Accutane here about 5 years ago. It can be found here http://www.clearskin.net/viewtopic.php?t=6655
At the time, I was deployed to Kuwait, and was given the medicine by a civilian derm in the city. I was only able to complete two months (with GREAT results) of my course because it was time for us to pack up and head home. So obviously, my acne came back. And no, I haven’t been clear for the past five years. I’d say it came back after about three months. All this time, I’ve been going through the usual, OTC, doctors who only think to prescribe Doxy, Retin-A, etc…finally my new derm decided I’m a good candidate for Accutane. So here I go again. I’m thinking about only posting on the exact same days as I did the first time and comparing what was happening then, to now.
I took my first pill this morning after my appointment. 40 Mg (same dose as first course)
