Tazorac-Still Breaking Out Week 11

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm currently on week 11 of Tazorac. I had the initial breakout, a terrible breakout at week 6, saw it clear up at week 8 (clearest it's been in months!) and then at week 9 I broke out again-worse than ever! I'm still breaking out terribly since then, with pustles, blackheads on my cheeks, and cysts. I thought I was supposed to clear up by week 12, but my skin is 5x worse than when I started Tazorac. I'm almost crying on the daily because of how badly my skin looks and how painful it is. 

Should I give up after week 12 and ask my derm for accutane? I've already been on it twice.
