Accutane and Trimethoprim (to stop the initial breakout)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 
i have been on accutane for 3 and a half months now, 40 mg a day, 
when starting I was also told to take trimethoprim to reduce the initial breakout.
my skin was starting to clear and I decided to stop taking the trimethoprim 3 months in to my accutane treatment, I didn't want to be taking so many medications at once and I was told it was only for the initial breakout time (first 2 months or so) but when I did it seemed my skin began to breakout again.
i'm wondering if my skin was only starting to clear because of the trimethoprim or if that's normal and I just need to give it time for accutane to work 
any opinions are welcome thanks!
