Accutane not working??

Recommended Posts

HI All,

OK, so Im nearly done with my fourth month of accutane and I must say that I'm rather dissapointed as it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

Does this sometimes happen? Do you think it will clear within the next 2 months that I have left.

This is making me really sad, as accutane was my last resort. :(

I have heard some people take longer to clear than others. There are posts on this site about some not clearing till the end of the course or even after. What has your derm said about it? Maybe a higher dose? (not sure what dosage you are taking). By saying it's not doing anything, do you mean you haven't cleared at all, or you're not having side effects, etc. And I think those with more severe acne can sometimes take longer to clear also, but not sure what type of acne you have.....

Hang in there, I'm on Accutane too on my seventh week and just trying to be patient. I'm still breaking out, so I know it's hard, but I hope things get better for you!
