Roaccutane - Need Advice

Hi all,

Like everyone here I am battling with acne and am now on Roaccutane... I am 27 years old and 85kg and up until 8 months ago had never had a problem with my skin...

Firstly my treatment so far. My first dermatologist was a quack and despite my please he only put me on 20 mg and the 40 mg so basically for someone who is 85kg the first 2 months was a waste of time.

My treatment below:

1 month 20 mg

2 month 40 mg

3 month 80 mg

Chicken pox so I had to go offf roaccutane for 2 weeks

4 month 40mg

5 month 80mg

My problem is about 5 weeks ago my skin seemed to be getting better... Now all of a sudden my face is oily again and it has got worse. I mean my face went from being dry and peeling to oily again in like a week and all my old spots have gotten worse again. I am worried that its going to get worse for good.

Has anyone experienced this?

Is this normal? Any feedback would be great.
