I wrote in another thread that I was on it 3 times as well. The first time my weight wasn't even taken into consideration. I cleared up but it came back within a month of going off.
The second time (new derma) I was on a higher dose and on it for 6 months. Again it came back within a month of going off.
The third time my derma said some people just take longer to get rid of it. I was on again full strength for about 3 months then a maintanence dose 3x a week for about 6-9 months. Got off of it a year ago this month. My face is better (not as oily) but I still breakout. This month is bad. No more cysts but just lots of breakouts. Not sure if I'll go back on it. Just too much trouble. Have to step up my diet and I'm going to try Proactive. Have a friend who was on the 'tane and swears by it now. It's pretty cheap and no blood tests. Worth a shot.
See if your doc will consider a maintanence dose. The effects aren't as bad as full strength and it worked well for me.
Good luck!
