ok, i finished accutane 2 weeks or so ago. it will still be working after you stop taking it. secondly, accutane cannot be a TOTAL cure. you will still break out. i'm still breaking out, but they are small, like you described. right now i have a whitehead under my lip. that is perfectly fine with me, considering before accutane i had to pop 10 pimples every morning before i even left the house!
