I've been on accutane for 2.5 months. I was on 30mg for the first month, 40mg for 1.5 months and now taking 50mg (I weigh around 65kg / 145lbs). My acne has gotten considerably worse since I've started accutane and I definitely have more rolling/box scars than the start. It seems every other week it looks like it's getting better, only for a major BO to start. This has happened around 3-4 times now and redness from previous spots is being to spread a lot. The disappointment when more spot/cysts come out is hard to deal with.
Is this normal? Should I try to get an increase? I had to fight my dermatologist for a long time to get put on it even though I had been on antibiotics plus bp for 5 years with varying success, it's not doing what I hoped for at all.
