My acne was very mild to moderate at times. My derm kept me on a steady dose of 40 mg's for a 7 month treatment, which I'm almost finished with. My initial breakout wasn't anything terrible. My left ckeek, always my problem area, broke out with one smaller sized cyst. I never really had cysts before, so it scared me. the rest of my face never broke out thankfully. It took about a month or so to have that breakout. Since the beginning, it sort of was smooth sailing for me, then a month or so into it, I developed that cyst. Ever since then, my skin has been clear. I haven't had a brakout in months. Remember though, everyone is different. Don't be alarmed and saddened if you breakout a lot, a lot worse, or for long periods of time. Every case is different but rest assured you'll have your clear skin you've been dreaming. Good luck. :)

I had two initial breakouts because of dosage changes. I considered mine to be bad, but in hindsight it wasn't that bad, and it went away so quickly.

My acne before Tane wasn't bad, but cystic. I'd get one or 2 on average, sometimes more on a really bad breakout, then I'd go clear for a week or 2, then get a few more. For some reason in this last year it got worse, and I'd have at least 3 most of the time, never a break in between. I had about 8 cysts (probably my worst breakout in my life) when I decided enough was enough and took my first pills (had the perscription for 4months, never filled it until then), and my IB was at it's worst within 3 days, with at least 20-25 cysts in 3 clusters on my face. Worst experience of my life. But 3 weeks later and most of them were gone. Considering how bad it was, I thought it healed up quite quickly. Haven't had a new one show up since, and I'm on week 6 now.

My acne was mild-moderate with the occasional cyst. My IB(if you can call it that) was mild, I only got one cyst over my entire course and it was very small and healed quickly on its own.

My IB was pretty bad, my cheeks were always the real acne problem but now ive been on accutaine 1 month 6 days and its sorta spread a bit down to my chin and to the sides of my faces however my cheekys are starting to improve very slightly so I hope my break out should calm down and clear up soon :|
