Some people don't get it.

Being on accutane for my 3rd time, I've seen a pattern. For the first while the acne likes to clear up and then break out severely for a very short period of time before clearing again for awhile. It eventually stops. How many times/how bad it is would depend on your dose and how bad your acne is.

Ohh.. I see biggrin.gif

Well, my dosage is 40mg, and i have moderate acne. Does that mean that I wont get as bad of an initial breakout as someone who is taking a higher dosage or has severe acne?

It shouldn't be bad. Especially when your acne is mild in the first place. You'll see soon though I guess. If you break out, you know why. Just take normal care of it and remember it will pass quickly.
