Re: Breakout at 2 1/2 months on Accutane...failing?
Hey! no you should be fine, I had bad breakouts ( mind were all face before, no body acne, but still...) until my 4th and even some in my 5th month. Overall, it improved and I could see the improvement by month 4. My derm says that what it does is by shrinking the oil glands it pushes whatever was in those glands and pores up and out-since theres no where else for it to go. So by getting some breakouts on your face it prob means you had some clogged pores/glands and they are just coming out. Don't worry though, You should start to see a good improvement pretty soon, and I agree on teh low dose-longer term course, Im on 40mg (im 120 lbs) but a lot of ppl at my weight take 60....and im on it for 6-7 months, probably 7. My derm says he has proven cases that it works better at lower dosages on longer courses. So hang in there, it will be good!
