Does accutane work after you stop taking it?

Hi Guys! So, I need a bit of advice and personal experiences...My derm put me on Isotretinoin 4 months ago (50mg) daily. Yesterday was my last day and my skin is everything but cleared. It's bumpy and I have painful (not too big, but lurking) pimples on my cheeks and some on my chin. I went to the derm about 1 month ago and he put me on some corticoteroids for 3 weeks. It help a lot with the inflammation, but the pimples never really went away. And as soon as that course was done, my skin just flamed up again. My derm told me that I am taking the accutane for 4 months, but it actually works over 5 months and I will start seeing results then. Has anyone had that type of experience? I was really hoping to see results by now? Thanks  (Oct 25, 2012 | post #25)
