You have experienced what many here already have: Accutane is not a permanent cure. Some people have even gone on 3-4 courses of Accutane and STILL have acne.

If your acne is coming back, I would guess that your acne is caused by a hormonal problem. Many times acne is caused by an excess androgens/DHT. There are prescription drugs and herbs you can take to keep your androgen level down.

I would look at the other posts on hormonal treatment and particularly for the posts on androgens by SweetJade.

Unfortunately Accutane isn't a cure. Sure some lucky people get long term remission of their acne, but many people do not and see the acne and oil return eventually. If you do not want to go through a second round of it, consider Dan's regimen. It works very well for most people who follow it strictly. http://www.acne.org/regimen.html

Dan and myself have both taken Accutane and the same thing happened to us with acne returning although not as severe as before.
