Face getting worse using Accutane

Patient: I’m in my 2nd week of using Accutane 30mg. and I have noticed that the acne gets worse and my face is red . is that normal? and could you tell me when I’ll see any improvement?

 

 

Doctor: It ‘s too early to expect any clinical or observable improvement in your condition. It would take minimum 6-8 weeks for any noticeable change to occur. So be patient and follow the schedule set by your doctor, for desired outcome. All the best!
