Retin A, then Accutane...

Recommended Posts

Hi, so I was recently on Retin A from last April until about a week ago. My derm told me that I wouldn't need to use it anymore because I would be going on accutane. I was just wondering, since you get VERY dry on Retin A, will my skin still get try on Accutane? And my acne is actually very good at the moment, but will my acne get bad again once I am on accutane? Or will my year on Retin A have no effect on Accutane at all? I am starting this pill in 2 weeks. I'm so nervous!

More than likely, you will still have an initial breakout. I posted the same question about 3 weeks ago,( I went from Tazorac to Accutane).
