Accutane goes on causing improvement even for a couple of months after you stop. Although you might need to take it again some day, it's more likely that you'll stay clear enough to use mild treatments that didn't work for you before. It's much too early to become discourage. Work with your dermatologist. Also, you need to come to terms with the fact that your skin may not be perfect until you outgrow the acne altogather (and you will!)
I have been taking acutane at a low dose for about 8 months now. I take a 10mg capsule every other day. I suffer form both acne and a really oily face. This is the only way I have been able to keep myself even both mentally and physically when concerning my skin. I will do this the rest of my life if I have to! The side effects so far are pretty minamal, the odd ake or pain but thats it.
i've been on 2 rounds of accutane and am very afraid my acne will return... i wish i could just go on a low dose for a while after, but my doctor doesn't recomend it. what should i do?
