Unfortunately, Accutane works by bring everything (and I mean everything) up to the surface and eventually out (note the word "eventually"). I remember after a certain point on Accutane, it was like all my blackheads kind of started falling out of my face all at once, but it was a mess until then. I was one of those few people who was not able to complete my treatment of Accutane, though, so don't go by me and the problems I'm having now. I have been using Differin around 8 weeks now and honestly I can't see any blackheads really anymore. Maybe your doctor can give you something topically to help things along. It may be that your skin will be too sensitive on the Accutane, though, to tolerate topical meds, and the Differin takes a couple of months to kick in anyway, and your skin will probably be well on its way to clear by then. Just hang it there.
