Acne coming back after Accutane treatment

Hi!

I'm male just turned 27. I have finished a course of Accutane last September (took it over 4months) and it was 100% effective.

5months later, the oilyness of my face is 80-90% back as compared to before accutane treatment.

I then suddenly have small spots on my forehead, ~6 actual acne spots and I can see more potentiallly coming up.

Anyone with similar experience? Any suggestions on what I should do?

Are you in the first few weeks of taking it again as it obviously gets worse before better? I had 3 courses of 6 months from memory

Are you on the highest dose? I remember having to increase mine twice which did the trick.

If 40 hasn’t helped after a month, I would be asking to see the doctor. Perhaps your body has become too used to it now?
