Sporadic little pimples - 4th month on Accutane...?

Hey guys, I'm on day 103 on Accutane and my skin started getting a little weird recently. My cycle goes like this:

2 weeks = 40mg / day
6 weeks = 60mg / day
4 weeks = 80mg / day
6 weeks = 60mg / day
2 weeks = 40mg / day

I just completed 80mg / day and am now doing 60mg / day for the next 5 weeks or so. Lately I have been getting really tiny pimples here and there. I haven't had anything in at least 2 months and now all of a sudden they are popping up... what gives?? They aren't even whiteheads or anything, just really tiny little bumps I guess - one or two on my back, one on my nose, one on my neck... At 80~60mg / day Accutane I shouldn't have ANY zits, especially since I haven't had any in over 2 months! I am afraid now because my course cycle ends at the end of February and I am afraid that my acne will come rushing back. I only had mild~moderate acne when I started Accutane which I think was caused by overactive sebaceous glands, so I don't know how long they are going to stay shrunken down, but let me tell you I am pretty scared at what could potentially happen. Any ideas guys?

Has anybody on Accutane suddenly started developing new random pimples out of no where halfway through the course? They are small and not inflamed, but they are annoying especially since I've had NO pimpled for at least 2 months.... No one has had this happen??
