100mg doxycycline and tretinonin 0.025% cream have cleared me up in like 4-5 months. Now im off both of those- i got back up refills if I ever need... and just use cetaphil bar soap in morning and at night. And so far my skin has stayed clear.

Hi Cobby! You'll have your clear skin one day soon! To shed some light on your situation, I know two people that took Accutane for their cystic acne. One being a very good friend of mine and another being my cousin.

My friend-

He had cystic acne as a teenager, brought on by chicken pox at an older age. So, he took one course of Accutane and his skin is really beautiful now. I can't even tell he suffered from bad acne. Hel ooks great. Plus, he's 30 now. So, he's been clear well over 10 years.

My cousin-

He's only about your age, 15 years old. Unfortunately, he had acne all over his face, neck, back and chest. It was cystic acne as well. He went on one course of Accutane and he's very clear. Once in a while he'll get a couple of very small pimples on his forhead, but nothing to worry about. That may happen anyway, to male teenagers that have the most perfect of skin since your bodies are going through major hormonal changes at your age... puberty.

So, keep your chin up and your hopes high! Clear skin is right around the corner for you! Good luck! :)

Yes be patient. The first months are the toughest.

I had really bad breakouts the first 2 months then slowly my skin cleared. By the third month I looked pretty good. Your doctor should wait until the 3rd month before he ups your dosage. That's what my derm did and she didn't have to, and thank God b/c my skin got so dry, I don't think my body could have handled a higher dosage.

I finished my 5 month course 2 months and my skin looks great. Be patient, I know it's really difficult. I went through hell at the beginning, but the last months are easy to go through since most people don't breakout at the end of the course.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE moisturize your face. DON'T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY. I did the same stupid mistake and my skin got better when I started moisturizing. IT'S A MUST. Believe me you will have less breakouts when you start moisturizing. too much dryness causes breakouts. Your skin goes on emergency mode when is too dry and it will produce more oil and therefore breakouts.
