Time for my Third Course..........

I've had two courses of accutane previously one when I was 20 and a second when I was 22. Relapsed both times, but my relapse after the second time was pretty manageable until recently. (I am now 26). I was wondering what the results of people who have taken a third course have been? I think that with my age, I might stand a better chance of it sticking.

I'm partly asking just looking for hope, but I also am asking because I'm in South Korea and the doctors here are much more laissez faire. My doctor has prescribed me a two week course at 60 mg a day. He doesn't speak great English so I'm not sure what his plan is after that. I was the one who suggested accutane again, so I doubt he'll have much of an issue continuing to prescribe it, or I could just end the course as soon as I clear.

I have the very oily skin with mainly whiteheads which is less likely to clear, so perhaps I should just get it back under control and just live with constantly putting topicals on.

Thoughts? Would especially like to hear from people who have had more than two courses of accutane.
