Is it normal at the end of your accutane journey to start getting acne and oily skin back a little bit???

Recommended Posts

I suffered from bad cystic acne, and i've been on accutane for 5 months now at 40mg. I was having bad side affects so for this past month untill the end of it, i am taking 20mg. My skin was all cleared on the 40mg, but now im getting a few new zits and my face feels oily just like it used to before accutane. I am so upset that just taking 20mg for a month would do this!! Starting september, i am supposed to be done with the course..but not if my acne starts coming back after being clear for 5 months!!!

Yes, perfectly normal for me anyway. I got quite a bit of oil back, but no acne. Sure I get the odd few spots when i'm stressed or haven't been eating healthy. But its nothing compared to when I started accutane. Don't worry about it.
