Accutane - No effect anymore?


I'm completely scared at the moment. 5 years ago I had a one-year accutane treatment and the acne completely vanished for 3 years. One year ago it started coming back until my doctor put me again on roaccutane on a very low dosis of 10mg every second day. I know I shouldn't but I always took these 10mg per day..but still a very low dosage and so far I don't have any sideeffects.

Now, I'm on roaccutane again for 6 months, since about 3 months I hardly had any acne anymore. But since the beginning of this week, some small piples appeared again..maybe 2-3, maybe no'one else really notices them because they're quite small (none with a white dot, just red pimples) but I do, and this hasn't happened in the last 3 months. Should I be scared now that the treatment isn't effective anymore? Or might this just be a one-time thing? Any experience?

I'm really scared..I can't take another acne "attack" as I had them before I started accutane.. :cry:
