Post Two accutane questions

Ok well if accutane shuts down your oil glands then why is there an initial breakout? How does the shutting down of the oil glands lead to bringing out all the gunk in your skin? And also if i have been on tazorac for the last 3 months wich is supposed to bring all the gunk out of your skin do u think my initial breakout would be less severe?

In the way that you describe... I would think it could very well be more severe.

There is no way to predict how your skin will react once on accutane. I had a severe initial breakout on my back not my face, yet I never had a problem with back acne before accutane. Also, accutane does not permanently shut down oil glands. I got breakouts again 6 months after accutane.
