Whenever I stop even if it's just for a day, small zits come back, so I'm afraid to stop. What are the longtime side effects of this drug? Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately some people are prescribed it for years, been on it 9 month..may be on it for years. I had cystic , pustular Acne very badly as a teen. The only real "Cure" I am aware of and I took for a year that actually got rid of my very bad Acne was Accutane. In the 1990s it was very expensive, must be cheaper now. Was on it for a year. No more acne. I tried every everything first including Retin A.
