im on my second month of isotret. and in the past week iv broken out heaps and started producing oil again. my first month was so dry and sensitive my doc didnt want to up the dose. but now im normal (other then still skin hypersensitivity to temp, sun, chemicals, ect) and have pimples every where accept there alot bigger and just yuckier ! my first month was totally clear, So i dont understand. Shouldnt initial break out be, um, initial ? like first week? or is this normal?

Im only on 20mg for 6 months and so i understand its not a very high does but Iv never had 'bad acne' so doc didnt want me to be on very high ( actually she didnt want me on at all, but i convinced her :lol: ). but should i try and get higher dosage? or is it just pat of whatever happens on accutane?

Im having the same problem, I think this IS your initial breakout. The cumulation of the drug in your body allows it to suddenly express itself, beginning with breakouts.
