Do I need to continue accutane?

Hi everyone. I have a question about accutane.

I'm 25 and I've had cystic acne since I was 18. Acne became ridiculous when I was 22-25, before I started accutane.

I started on 20mg a day (10mg in the morning/evening) for about 3-4 months at the height of an outbreak. It helped a lot, but it wasn't enough as I ended up with an almost 1-inch-long set of cysts next to my eyebrow.

I then went on 40mg a day (20mg in the morning/evening) for the past 2 months. NO SINGLE CYST APPEARED. I understand an accutane regiment goes for 6 months. I wonder if I need more time with it. It's been a couple of days since not taking accutane... and I saw a white pimple (the tiny ones filled with white puss) this morning. Is it a sign of things to come?

Shall I continue with my 40mg regiment? For how long?
