What's the chance of...

Hey everyone

A quick history before asking my question. I am on my second course of accutane. The first time i was on 50mg a day for 7 months. I had a bad IB after about two months and then cleared. I was clear for a couple of months afterwards but then the acne returned and months of antibiotics didn't seem to do anything.

I am now on my second course and the derm put me on a very low dose of 20mg every second day. I've been on this dosage for about 9 weeks. I had what seemed to be an IB after about a month but following that I haven't cleared up that much. Because it hasn't worked as well as liked, the derm has upped the dose to 60mg a day. What is the chance of experiencing another flare up with this increased dosage?
