minimizing breakouts on Accutane / Question about dosage

Recommended Posts

Hi! Prior condition - moderate acne (female, 23). I've completed four weeks on Accutane: three weeks on 10 mg daily (had an IB, in the third week it calmed down a bit and my dosage was upped to alternating 20mg/10mg a day. But now I'm at the start of week 5 and experiencing a breakout again :smileys_n_people_57: (started after I took 20 mg several times), not as bad as the first one though.
The question is:  My skin must look decent in two weeks because of one event and I'm struggling to minimize those breakouts. What is the best strategy to achieve that 1) 10 mg daily; 2) alternating 10/20 mg;  3) 20 mg daily. I understand that it takes time to see real improvements but I'm desperately trying to minimize those breakouts (which also take a long time to heal :smileys_n_people_40:) because of the upcoming event.
What do you think? Thank you for reading :)
