The availabily of Accutane is greatly increased when taken with food, fatty foods in particular, according to Roche's study literature. I wouldn't be worried, you've just not been getting as full an effect as you could have been. So just take it with food from now on to get the most from your dosage.

The info is on page 6 of the general information document available in the following pdf on Roche's site. You must have an Acrobat reader installed to view it.
