Right now originally i thought my dermatologist was going to prescribe me 20 milligrams for the first month and see how my body reacts and then prescribed me 40 milligrams for the second month but she actually prescribed me 30 milligrams for the first month sorry that’s like i’m filming off of my camera i mean my phone that’s what it’s kind of like jittery the

Screen anyway so in this box here there’s three it comes in three like little packets so i’m guessing there’s ten pills in each package so let me go ahead and each and this is how important it is to like not be pregnant on it they see it right here and every single pill they say right here they say it on the front page this is basically just such a strong drug

That there’s warning signs everywhere special warning for female patients right here anyway so i’m excited to start taking the medication it’s this is so long overdue in my previous video about accutane i read out the warnings and side-effects that you can experience while on accutane i can read them out for you because there’s a whole like page right here on this

Pill package some side effects are headache nausea vomiting blurred vision increased brain pressure that’s a new one severe stomach pain diarrhea rectal bleeding trouble swallowing yellowing of your skin or eyes or a dark urine i didn’t know that either changes in hearing allergic reactions bone or muscle pain i was worried about the bone or muscle pain because
