Accutane question

Recommended Posts

So I started my accutane treatment 2 months ago. I’m on 40mg/day

After 1.2 months into the treatment my face started getting pretty clear and I barely had any acne but now 2 months in the acne started returning out of nowhere the way it was when I started .

Is this normal ?

If it offers you any consolation, I had an almost identical experience albeit on a lower dose. I realized that a month in, I thought I had become "immune" to acne due to the drug and began indulging in food/lifestyle habits I normally refrained from due to how it would affect my skin. Surprise, surprise, it still did. Second, and I'm sure you realized from other posts and logs but accutane generally relies on a long-term timeline compared to other treatment modalities and literally each individual experience varies, be it conspicuously or more subtley.
