Advice w/ Accutane!

I've been on Accutane for 3 weeks and a couple of days now and I've noticed that my face has gotten considerably worse which is did fully expected. What I was wondering was for those who were on Accutane how long did this initial breakout last for??? I just am getting a bit frustrated and just want to hear how the drug worked on other people. As well I am not a great one for just leaving my acne alone.. like with picking and popping zits. I know its not good at all to do it but its hard because I feel like they never go away if I don't. Will this only make my face breakout worse and if I just be patient will Accutane actually get rid of the acne I have??? Thanks.
