Hi doctor,

I am currently on Accutane for adult acne. I am 30 years old and have been on low dose birth control since I was 16. I need to go off the pill, but I am so terrified of the post-pill acne. My skin is finally good after 30 years, and I do not want to go back to dealing with horrible skin. The pill is not necessary for me anymore as I am not having sex. If I stop taking it, will the Accutane help with the breakouts?
