When did your IB happen while on Accutane

Recommended Posts

1. What was the severity of your acne pre-Accutane?
2. How long into the course did you get a IB?
3. What was your starting dose?
4. Was your IB associated with a change in dose (if so, what dose)?
5. If you didn't experience an IB, do you think there were factors other than luck that helped (low starting dosage, gradual increase, simultaneous use with antibiotics/topicals, etc.)?

my acne was moderate when i started accutane (I had been trying other prescriptions drugs/creams which helped a little but did not clear me up)
I got my IB about a month in... my skin actually completely cleared up within the first month (on 60mg) then i had a pretty significant breakout when my dose went up to 80mg after the first month
