Does acne get worse when accutane dosage is increased

Ok so I've been on accutane 30mg for nearly 3 months and I've definitely seen improvements. But not it's not been as fast or as effective as I would like it to be so I'm getting my dosage increased next week. Will this make my acne worse again or just speed up the process. I was thinking it would make it worse but I've already been on it 3 months and I think I'm past the worse of it. Does anyone know anything? X

you might get like...a SMALL initial breakout from the dose increase...but from what I've heard most people dont.

i was on 40mg for 2 months, now im on 80mg one day, 40mg the next, and I alternate like that.

i had a small breakout on like day 3 but now things are going alot better. only 1 actve on my face so try not to stress it.

if you've been on accutane for 3 months your body is used to the drug by now so a little more of it shouldnt make you break out horribly...if at all.
