Initail Breakout on Accutane

Recommended Posts

I have been on Accutane for 1 week now and I am starting to notice a slight increase in acne, I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience that would help me out. I am scared that it is going to get worse, also when can I expect my skin to start clearing??

It all really depends on your dosage, how bad your acne is, and the environment you live in.

I took accutane for 6 months. Within the first few weeks, my skin got worse (but not too bad). Remember to always moisturizer and don't use any other OTC products, as your skin is extremely sensitive when it is on Accutane.

If all goes well, your skin should get better in no time. The reason your skin is getting worse is because Accutane causes all the dirt/acne from deep in your pores to come out.
