Does it take longer on higher doses of accutane the longer you have let the acne go untreated? I mean if it gets to the really bad cystic acne stage, will accutane be effective, or is it too late? I am 29 and have really huuuuugggggggggge stubbon cystic acne all over my face, neck, chest, and upper back and arms. It really hurts, especially to wash.

The last time I went to the derm was about four years ago and she just told me to use Cetaphil cleanser and prescribed Differen, which didn't do anything except make my skin incredibly dry and itchy. I have a derm appt. on Tuesday, and I am going to demand accutane. It took a several weeks to get in as a new patient, and I want to make sure that I get the treatment I need this time.

I am totally at the end of my rope, and just pray that accutane works. Mr. Right, and others, what percentage would you say the accutane cleared your skin?
