Doesnt really belong in the anabolic forums but I'll answer anyways.
I took accutane twice when I was younger......how many mg was in 1 pill ? I think I took around 3 pills a day ? (You might just want to try googling how much people cycled it depends how bad your acne is too. I took it so long ago I forgot)
But you notice it quick and it is pretty powerful drug to be taken oral. You should have to be on it for about 12 weeks or around 3 months though to get the benefits. It will really help your acne long term if you cycle it long enough.
Within the first week or two my face got SUPER dry. My lips get chapped like madd and even like the inside of your nose basically everything on you is way more dry. Trust me you will know it is working I took it in elementary grade 8 and in grade 10. It was almost too embarrassing to go to school because my face and everything was so dry.
The first cycle I was on it I had to go off because for some reason I couldnt run even if I tried. Liver problems I think I was getting monthly blood tests. Doctor told me to go off of it right away after I told him the problem of not being able to run. A year or two later I went on it again had another cycle but then I stopped halfway through because everything was improved so much already. Didnt feel the need to stay on it
But it worked wonders I had the worst acne it was disgusting. Check out my profile I have a recent picture in there now so you can see it improved SO much. My face previously was literally covered with the biggest zits you can think of all over the place now I just have acne scars left.
Honestly my advice is if you have THAT bad of acne go to your doctor and get it prescribed to you. If its that bad he should have no problem giving it to you. It is really powerful and hard on your body it should really be taken as a LAST resort after you tried all topical creams, proactive, and went to go see a dermatologist.
Hope that helps
