Oh boy.. It is meant to get worse before it gets better but what you have described doesn't sound right at all!
I would recommend going back to your specialist or the person who put you on accutane for a checkup!
Personally I think your body can't handle the dose you're on and I would recommend just going on 30mg at night or morning only and wait for two weeks before upping the dosage.
Your really giving it to your body all at once and it simply can't handle it!
Hope it gets better!

Moved to "prescription acne meds" where I hope you continue to receive helpful and supportive replies, however I agree with Zefferson, you really should seek advice from your medical practitioner. Good luck.

Even though it's annoying, the initial breakout indicates that the drug is working; it's not a bad sign.
Accutane is basically pushing out all the pimples that you were going to get anyway, but perhaps now they're all happening at once.
My initial breakout was annoying, but I stopped getting new pimples after about 4 months of treatment. I am now 2 years post-Accutane and remain 100% clear.
Accutane generally takes months to work, during which time your skin condition may fluctuate greatly and regularly.
Only start worrying if you are still breaking out 4 months after your first pill. Before then, pimples are common.
Also, there are additional prescription meds you can get from your dermatologist for the IB, e.g. prednisolone.
