Depo shot causing acne

I am a 42 year old female. I have had mild acne in my 20's which improved with Yasmin. When I came off the pill, I had no problems but perhaps mild cyclical breakouts which I used over the counter treatment. 15 months ago, I had my 1st and last depo shot. I developed really bad acne thereafter and then it got worse to a point that I have large cystic acne. I have now had to end up on roaccutane and my face is no more what it used to be. I still have not gotten it under control despite my periods returning. It is awful especially for a woman who is 42 with clear skin prior. I really want to know if anyone else has experienced this, what did they do and did it eventually clear?? It is taking so so long .
