accutane not working

i am not on my second course of accutane. and i am almost finished, here in the next 2 weeks. the first time as soon as i got off of it in a month i was just as bad as i had been befor. so less than a year after finishing that course i started again. and have not seen great results this time either. i have tried EVERYTHING under the sun it seems like, over the counter products, every topical almost, i used a few different antibiotics, then accutane, the only thing left that i have been told to try has beem birth control. i have been suffering from severe acne for 6 years now, and am ready to fix it. any ideas on things to use after accutane to keep the results longer. any other ideas of products i should try? HELP!!!!

What is your dosage and weight? How is the medication taken? How long has this course lasted?

the guy above me posts some really good questions....also, get a second dermatologist to look at it, and ask for his opinion on what dosage he would use, and what he thinks the problem is.....

also.....some people need 3 courses for success.....me included! my doctor had to put me on it 3 times......and the third time was the charm....get that second opinion...
