Finishing Month 3 (2.5 months on 20mg, .5 months on 40mg)

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I got my derm to bump me up to 40mg, I started taking 40mg on the 12th of August. I got a somewhat bad IB (for me). That was almost a week ago. Even now, I keep getting zits on my face, and had a bad breakout on my forehead. I was wondering if this was normal (this late in the game) considering I upped the dosage. Has anyone done something similar to me? bc I am interested in hearing how their experience was. I am just getting anxious bc I am basically done with month 3, and its the worst its been. Thanks everyone!

Hey there!

I think its pretty common to breakout after a dose increase. Hopefully soon it will subside and you'll start getting clearer

Dont worry about it --- Ive read sooo many posts and the majority of people experience this when their dose is upped

Best of luck!

If it makes you feel better I am on month 5 and my skin is not flawless either. I have lots of little pimples on my forehead and cheeks, thankfully they are clearing up but I have read on the boards some people don't clear until they are done with their course. I have also read that when the dosage is upped most people break out as well. I know it is frustrating but you have to wait it out.
