Hey Ceven -- and any other low dose accutane users. I'm talking about people who take 10mg to 20mg a day to keep oil at bay and control persistent acne on a long-term basis.

How long before you see acceptable results?

When will the initial breakout stop?

I took accutane at 80mg for 5 months last year. After four months my acne came back. So, I talked to my derm and for 31 days now, I'm on 20mg/day. I didn't expect to get an initial breakout at this dose - but I got one! and it sucks!

So, I want to know, when should I expect the breakout to stop. When will I see good improvement?

I have superficial acne, no cysts. I get small pustules and papules.

Someone in the same boat -- please respond!!!!

Ceven -- respond!

hey the bigbad, sorry for the late reply, i have jsut seen this post.

the second time around 10mg per day, it toom me around 2 months before no major zits formed. To this day I still get a few very very small bumps, but the derm would lauff at me if i went to them to ask for accutane :)

now 5-6 months into it, my face is going GREAT, though i am running out of accutane, its hard to buy accutane in australia from overseas..

dont worry bigbad... one u clear from ure second treatment... then just take 10mg per day from then on or even less.. and u will be fine.
