You more than likely will go through an initial break out on accutane. I myself haven't went on accutane YET, but any new medication may cause an initial break out. An initial break out occurs when the new medication "purges" the pores of deep down dirt and then begin repairing the dirty pores. I just got put on tazorac as my last option before accutane, and I am on day two and I see somewhat of an initial break out on my nose.

I think the initial breakout is a myth. It takes about two to six weeks for any medication to make a difference. You also can control breakouts with Amoxil or Keflex. I name those two because they are highly effective with very low side effects.
