    When will the accutane breakouts subside?

    Hi guys, I've been on accutane for 3 days now, 40mg a day and so far I've been breaking out bad. several cysts on my face. gross. but the weird thing is is that I'm not really dry. my lips aren't really chapped either. wierd, huh. maybe the accutane hasn't even really kicked in yet and the breakouts are from stupid orto!!!!!! tell me again guys, stop them now or finish the pack???? also if someone could please fill me in on around when the accutane breakout subsides and the clear skin staRTS kickin in. pleez be sooer than later. i'm keepin my fingers crossed.

    My experience was that it took about a week to stop breaking out. So it should be any time now!

    It can sometimes take up to the entire course of Accutane treatment until the breakouts subside. (That's one reason you take it for so long.) Everyone responds differently. My son's breakout was horrible around 7 to 12 weeks. After week 12, his skin was beautiful. He's been off Accutane since October and he hasn't had a blemish.
