I'm starting my 4th month now and had a bad break out last week.  My derm upped my dosage, so maybe my skin will look better when I visit him next month.  I was hoping I'd see better results by now, though... I hope you do soon, too.  Hang in there.

Third time's a charm, right?

some derms give anti biotics for the IB. See if you can get some.

just came back from dermatologist....starting 3rd month...going to try to do 60 mg....discussed my scarring issues..he said Accutane doesn't scar...acne does...and recommended me to get a c02 laser done after 6 months off Accutane. skin looks a little bit better but still clogged pores

I don't get it ..understand it..and I just want it to go...this is a very hard journey
