I think that if you're still breaking out in your last couple weeks on Accutane, usually the doctor will extend your treatment for one extra month and see how that works out for you. Plus, I've heard that some people clear up AFTER they're done their course... so don't give up hope! Is your skin better than it used to be at least? If it is, at least you know it's working...maybe you just need a little bit more time! smile.gif

well your acne should clear completely at the end of your course of therapy. So if you doc advises you to stop taking 'tane before your acne has cleared completely, dun worry.. there WILL be further improvement for a few weeks after the end of treatment.. trust your doc.. he knows better..

John: Did you break out during your entire treatment or did the two pimples just recently surface? Are they the same type of pimples that you had when you started Accutane?

I'm sure you've heard of people who have broke out the entire time they were on Accutane and didn't clear until afterwards. This could be a possibility.
