I just don't know what to do anymore. The first few weeks I was always in a good mood because I thought this was finally the end. It's about week 7 on amnesteem (80mg day) and my face is full of closed comedones and a few cysts (worse than before). Starting to feel like there is no use. My family doesn't understand what I am going through, because they all have perfect skin. My face is never going to go back to normal, and I don't even want to leave the house.

What I've read in most logs, most people don't see any results till month 3-4 so you should just stick it out. They'll come about soon enough I'm sure.

It may take 4 or even 5 months to really notice a difference. Try not to worry too much, I'm sure accutane will help your skin. Try to do things to keep you busy and not focus on your skin. Other people don't care as much about our skin as we do! Also I would talk to the doctor/dermatologist prescribing accutane. Sometimes they prescribe an antibiotic at the same time to reduce the breakouts in the beginning of the course.
