Trying to stay positive in final month

It's my last two weeks of treatment. My skin's better, but it's far from clear. I keep telling myself to stay patient, but time seems to be running out. I still find myself breaking out a bit and, of course, I've got red marks all over the place.

How many people have experienced significant progress in the month AFTER taking accutane? I'm banking on that because at this point, it seems like the treatment has done essentially nothing.

Do you have an appointment with your derm before you finish the course or in the weeks following your final dose? It's possible that your derm will extend your course. Accutane stays in your system for a considerable amount of time after your final dose so you should still see improvements but if you're not happy with the results so far speak to your derm about extending your course/upping your dosage.
