4 Months into Course (80mg/day) and I'm Still Breaking Out

I'm four days away from being done with my course (which I'll be asking my derm to extend on my next visit) and I'm still breaking out terribly. I got a huge cyst on my cheek and a very severe nodule on my chin, not to mention a few random blemishes here and there. This is really starting to tick me off.

What should I do? :(

Sounds like you need another month on it, 80mg is pretty high. I say its not time to panic yet. The stuff works after you have taken your last pill. I would think your doc would prescribe you like retin-a after your done. If it doesnt clear after that which it should, then you could try another course in 6 months.

Had an appointment on Thursday and got my course extended another month. Because I ran out of pills before my appointment though, I missed approximately 3 days of treatment. This won't deter my results, right?
