I'm on isotretinoin but my skin is still very oily and the acne hasn't improved, is the drug working?

Too soon for results
Most patients are taking accutane for 3 month or longer. So if you have only been taking the medication for 2 weeks, I don't think you will start seeing the results that you are looking for. So continue to take the medication as long as there aren't any side effects and be patient.
