Two months in, it's amazing!

I'm 17 years old, and have had pretty bad acne on my face and back since I was about 13. I've tried almost every prescription and non-prescription acne treatment out there, and nothing worked. I finally got a dermatologist and he put me on accutane about two months ago. The only side effect I've had is dry lips, which is really easy to deal with.

As of now my skin is almost totally clear, and my back is slowly clearing up, but I see much improvement. I was kind of scared at first to go on it, but it seems to be going extremely well!

My dermatologist said that if I'm not seeing side effects now, it is more than likely that I will not see any more throughout the course of my accutane treatment. This may not be the case for everyone, but I sure am pleased!
