How long have you been on it accutane? It might be the initial breakout, or if you just recently increased your dosage intake that might be the reason.

the medication's not designed to keep you clear, there is no cure for acne only a relief. You're probably experiencing a initial breakout, it will subside within the next couple of weeks and you shouldn't be getting any more cyst afterwards.
