I hate to say it, but if you're going to have an IB it'll probably be starting then.

Good luck though.

my IB started around 10 days in... so i'm sorry to say there is a risk you'll break out during the first week

I didn't get an IB since I was already broken out when I went on accutane. Nothing "initial" about it. Same old nasty cysts as always.

I think only 15% get worse before they get better. So that's an 85% chance you won't break out worse.
