Yeah it's very depressing when accutane(which is probably the last option) doesn't seem to work :(

Maybe its taking longer since i'm on very low dose.
my dermatologist said to wait and see the result by the end of 4th or 5th month. 
But i'm wondering if accutane doesnt work for me then what will i do next! :'(

there is improvement..like i dont get big pimples anymore..but there are blackheads and tiny bumps all over and  until these are there..nothing can be done for my scars which are.. well..very bad and i also get hyperpigmentation very easily and while on accutane, they just don't fade no matter what..i know it isn't as bad as those painful cysts..but the scarring really hurts your confidence..anyway lets see what happens..and I really wish it works as it should for both of us
