    Accutane Question/Reassurance

    Hi there. I feel your struggle. I'm on month 2.5 of Accutane and a little over a week ago my skin just broke out into tens of huge cysts.

I'm new to this and I don't know anyone who has been in isotretinoin before. I'm starting to get depressed and hopeless because I've literally tried everything else.I haven't always eaten a meal/something fatty before taking the meds so I'm wondering if that's making the medication significantly less effective?
