Initial Breakout: Is it real?

I juuust started my 40mg accutane shemozzle. I have never had systic acne, basically just occassional big zits in the same predictable places, and little tiny bumps other places. Anyway, I think I'm going through the intitial breakout right now, since I have more big zits then usual and they come and go really quickly. But, it's only day 6. Can it come this early? How long will it last? DISCUSS!

There is no scientific answer for this. Most people get a mild-moderate worsening of acne at first. If you read the logs, you'll see this lasts from 1 week to the whole course :/

Just hang in there--know that no matter how it looks now, things will almost certainly get better.
