Will Accutane work for me

Any acne medication takes about a month to even start seeing any changes in the skin. You need to give the meds time to work. 20mg of Accutane is a low dosage and so it's going to take awhile for enough of the medication to get into your system to have an effect. Be patient and stick with it.
