Accutane/ Differin Question

i'm starting accutane tomorrow and i'm very excited but also very nervous. i hear that there can be a SEVERE initial breakout with this stuff because it pushes acne up to the surface. i just got done taking differin for 3 weeks and it made my acne much worse, and it also said that it would make acne worse for a few weeks, so i was just wondering, since the differin has pushed some of the acne to the surface already will that mean that my initial breakout won't be as bad? does anyone know about this?

i did a treatment previous to accutane that made me break out like crazy so i didn't get the initial break out of accutane. just do it and have faith that accutane will work for you. best of luck.

i have mild acne that won't go away no matter what i take. .so does this mean that if i take accutane my acne will be worse than its EVER been before the cycle is done? I'm hoping there isn't much acne to "push up". lol
