Finished Roaccutane - Still Breaking Out :cry: in Prescription acne medications Posted December 26, 2010 I experienced exactly the same thing! I was clear by like Month 5 or 6 I think then BAM my acne came back Month 7....had to continue the course for 12 months! Then after the 12th month, I was still getting acne 3 months after.... THEN it just cleared....like completely cleared....I have no spots, no pigmentation, no blackheads, no whiteheads - NOTHING. My skin is as smooth as porcelain (albeit healing parts of my skin where there's redness and the scarring). Don't despair - the Roac, even after you've stopped taking it, continues to work. Has your derm prescribed you any topicals to take? I take Isotrex once a week (sometimes I forget hehehe). But derm basically says it's the liquid form of Roac....but since my skin is about 1000000000x better now, I don't even worry about taking it. Give it time. Trust in the magical drug that is Roaccutane.
