What if accutane didn't work?

Recommended Posts

I'm like one week off of it now and I just got a pimple on my forehead.

It is just one, but I'm sort of worried

While I was on, I still had some pimples and blackheads, but not many.

Does this mean the accutane didn't really work?

Some people will have their acne start back up just days/weeks after finishing it. And for some it never comes back (or at least never as severe). Another variable this can depend on is: How high was your dose? Acne is generally known to have a slightly higher likelihood of returning, the lower the dose you were on. So if you were on something like 10-20mg per day as opposed to 40; then your skin would have a higher chance of breaking out, and sooner.

As of now I wouldn't panic at all though, single pimples happen. Just eat healthy, get plenty of fresh air, and drink lots of water.. Then you should be good to go.
