Hi, try not to let yourself get too stressed...this doesnt help! Yes, its normal to have an initial breakout within the first few weeks of starting treatment. Accutane is pushing all the unwanted stuff out of your system. Some people start on a low dose to keep side effects as low as possible. If you are uncomfortable, it might be worth you talking to your derm about dropping to 20mg a day but this initial breakout happens to many people while starting treatment so isnt anything to worry about.

Best wishes and hope skin improves very soon for you!

Kind regards

Its better that your initial breakout started early so don't worry! the sooner it starts usually the sooner it passes. Mine didn't start until the end of the second month so now I'm still breaking out in my fifth month of 60 a day so just hang in there
