I was sent to make blood tests to check the liver and then I was prescribed a dose of Accutane. I started with 20 mg. Honestly, it was scary that it wouldn’t help me. I knew that the result wouldn’t show up immediately, but I was patient, and I have coped with it! I am satisfied with Generic Accutane. I have got used not to drinking alcohol.
