40mg accutane 3 Times a week

I used accutane for about 6 months and then finished and now my acne has come back. I heard from my dermatologist that it’s common and would need to do another round. Since my acne is not as bad as it first was, she prescribed me 40mg of accutane and to take it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have suffered with acne since I was in 7th grade and now am close to 22. I have VERY oily skin and when I went on accutane, it was a dream. Not having to blot every 30 min and touch up was amazing. Unfortunately after having a break from it, my oily skin has come back. Now taking accutane 3 Times a week, my skin is still oily. I am planning to go to the Philippines in the summer and it is very hot and humid and I don’t want to have to blot every half hour. Is there anyone who has taken the same amount and has had their oily sebum reduced? Pls let me know, I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering. Thanks!
