Well, I have one semi huge pimple that was forming when I finished the medication. My doctor gave me a prescription for retin A to use topically a month after I'm done with accutane if things get bad again and told me give it 4 months before I decide to go see a doctor.

End Of Month 1, No Change In Dosage?

Just had my appointment with the doctor. He did not increase my dosage. Is this normal to not increase the dosage after the first month? I am staying on 70 mg a day. I had a blowup about a week and a half ago. I had about four or five big large pimples on my face that were very painful. They have gone down now and my face is about back where it was when I...
