Accutane and Yaz at the same time?

I've been reading about how some people broke out really bad when they first started taking Yaz. I just started my first pill of this and am wondering whether my low dosage course of 10mg per day will prevent the scary IB from Yaz? I've already done a higher dosage course but have started breaking out again which is why my derm is trying me on Yaz, she prescribed the 10mg Tane daily to tide me over till the Yaz kicks in which according to her is in about 4mths.

Sorry, I'm kind of confused by your question. You just started accutane or you just started yaz? I can't imagine a derm giving accutane to *prevent* an IB, since it generally *causes* people to have an IB.

Also, if you're in the U.S. you would have to be taking Yaz 30 days prior to taking any accutane.

Anyway, sorry to say, I took Yaz for the month of May in combination with Bactrim (antibiotic) and still broke out really badly. So the only advice I can offer is to hang in there and hope for improvement! :)

P.S. You may want to make a post on the hormonal acne treatment board, there are probably a lot of girls on Yaz over there.
