Consensus On Initial Breakout For Mild Acne?

After 14 years of dealing with persistent mild and at times moderate acne, I am finally going to go on Accutane in a few weeks. Right now I am on Tazorac .1 and Dan's BP and it has my acne at a mild level but that is not good enough for me. Not at 25 years old. I still breakout every few days with pimples and always have at least 3 actives. No cysts but extremely annoying and its killing my confidence. I was wondering if the initial breakout correlates to how severe your acne is when you start or is it totally random? I ask because I am considering asking my derm if I can go back on Bactrim before I start my course and stay on it for a month or so into it.

My main goal here is to prevent an initial breakout as I am looking to avoid any additional scarring if possible. Thanks in advance.
