6 months on accutane and things are only getting worse

Recommended Posts

This is my 6 months on accurate with almost no results through the entire treatment. I use to have very oily skin and a blackhead covered nose, accurate cured that but I still have the initial cystic acne I had at the beginning of the treatment. I doubt it is the initial break out because it has progressively gotten worse over 6 months. I'm getting acne where I've never had it before. I really don't know what to do I'm a junior in high school and I feel like I can't talk to anyone and that everyone is always looking at me and judging me for my face. I'm a 6'4 165 pound male on 40 mg twice a day.

Stick it out!  Accutane takes a long time!  I was clear at about 4 months, but it might just take you longer.  You're quite a bit larger than I am, but are taking the same dose I did.  Keep the hope!
