I'm currently on 40 mg isotretinoin for moderate but persistant acne (cystic acne cleared up by first course of isotretinoin four years ago). Can anyone speak from experience about how isotretinoin affected moderate acne. Was there an IB? Do you think it took less time to see results because the the acne wasn't as severe to begin with?..

Your question was: How does isotretinoin affect moderate acne?.

I can't really say I have experience but right now i'm on Murad Acne Complex for moderate and persistent acne (with a couple cysts too ick) and there's a link to my log in my siggy from reading other people's logs they get their IB and then get really dry faces, but my face is starting to peel already so maybe I won't have an IB? haha. idk...

It really depends on the person, and what you have under your skin. my derm put me on a topical and oral medication for the two months leading up to taking Murad Acne Complex [i start tomorrow] so that I can atleast calm my acne and she said this should take away any-most of my intial break out period, I can only hope she's right :] good luck with everything <3..

It works wonders for moderate acne. I was on 40mg month one, and my small pimple are GONE. My derm bumped my up to 60mg this second month to hopefully rid my acne for good, and I've broken out some, but it's only been 2 weeks lol. Good luck...

My persistant moderate acne cleared up fully within about 2 weeks. I stayed clear for pretty much the whole course bar 6-7 pimples and have stayed clear until about 18 months after...

I've been on it for about two weeks and it seems to be clearing up, I hope it lasts. What happened after 18 mo?..
