I am in my 6th month, I started on 12th Feb..

I still have a zit on my right cheek, a whitehead near my eyebrow, and one mysterious small inflammed bump on my left cheek.

Also tons of red marks..

The pimples have become smaller though, this i must say.. At least 80% size reduction.. (it is because the previous ones I had were so damn big :P)

i was discouraged by the start of the 5th month too. it wasn't until i finished my 6th month that I noticed results--i am into my 7th, and haven't broken out in like 2 weeks. So don't give up hope. it may literally take until the end of the 6th month to see results.

I'm in a very similar situation. I started in mid-March and am closing in on the end of my fifth month. My dermatologist bumped me up to 100mg a day when I saw her after 4 months. I'm still breaking out and am quite discouraged. I'm hoping for an improvement! It seems like I shouldn't be breaking out while taking 100mg of accutane 5 months into my course.

I've recently started trying the 3% benzoyl peroxide wash I was using before I was on Accutane again. I just started it up again so it's hard to say how it's working so far. Is using benzoyl peroxide while on accutane a good idea? Have any of you used it? I'm trying to fight these breakouts that are unfortunately still occurring.

mega_starr - your dose seems really high...have you tolerated it well? what is your weight?
