hey daisy...i know what you mean when after being on Accutane for 5 months, you're skin hasn't improved like it should...and then going on Accutane for the extra, sixth month, the acne is still there. After my sixth month of Accutane my acne finally did clear up and I didn't have any zits anywhere. But about 4 months later, this past September, I started getting acne again on my face. I didn't want to go on a 2nd round of Accutane just because it sucked having soo much acne and being dry and all those side effects, but I went ahead and did a 2nd round of the Accutane and started it the beginning of this past December. I'm on my 2nd month of my 2nd round of Accutane, and I'm def. happy that I chose to go on it again. I didn't have the huge breakout that you're supposed to have the first 2-3 weeks, and my skin has def. improved already and my face is almost completely clear.
I was scared and sorta mad that I was one of those people that was slow to respond to the medicine and worried that this 2nd round of Accutane wouldn't help, but it definitely has. I'd consider a 2nd round of Accutane or ask your derm. what he/she thinks about it. I'm sure they'll agree. Good Luck!! Oh! and if you have any questions or advice, me and one of my friends who is also on Accutane have a thread-- La and Al's Support Group. I prob. have a lot more info. about going on my 2nd round and all on there.
