I am a 25 year old female suffering from acne. I have tried a number of products to control my skin with no luck. Recently I asked my dermatologist about accutane and she agreed. I just got my prescription. Today is day 4 since I have been taken Zenatane 40mg. I will update you on my progress weekly
Thanks for your review, I hope Accutane does the trick for you! What type of acne do you have? What other treatments have you tried?

I have moderate acne. I mostly get blackheads, whiteheads but no cystic acne. I usually have the most breakouts on my face. I have tried a number of antibiotics, prescription creams as well as over the counter products with little to no luck so hopefully this will work!

Good Luck. Are you tracking your progress with pictures? Hang in there - for most people it does get better

Nearly 2 months!!!#Zenatane

I am almost done with my second month on Zenatane. My doctor upped my dose to 80mg. I haven't really noticed any change in my skin. I have been using CeraVe foaming cleanser along with CeraVe moisturizer. As for my lips I use Aquaphor or Dr. Dans cortibalm. I really hope accutane works...4 more month to go;)

4 more months

Good luck! Give it about 3 months to really start seeing a difference in your skin! Hang in there, will be worth the end result :)

Very nice. I love the way she goes in great detail to explain your condition and all of your options. She always give samples to try before paying a lot of money for something that doesn't work!
