I've been exposed to numerous types of treatment including accutane 20mg and 40mg. I took the tablet isotane 20mg for close to a year, my acne cleared up, but it did come back. I was put on a tablet called 'tuff acne' which is a form of accutane, took 40mg of that for almost 6 months daily. The acne cleared up again, stayed pimple free for close to 2 months and then it was back again.
Went back to the derm who put me on accutane and he told me to take this tablet roxid daily for a month, it was great, had amazing skin for a month and as soon as I stopped the tablet my acne returned.
Changed derms, the new guy put me on a tablet called Minoz OD 100 for 20 days, tried that and it cleared my acne, now im off it and I can feel the pimples coming back, they arnt what they used to be but I can feel them returning.
I really need advice, had acne for almost 6 years now, started of when i was 15, almost 21 now. Is there any adverse long term effects to taking accutane like maybe 10 days a month? Honestly thats the only drug that seems to work on me for extended periods of time.
Ive tried the regime, but it cant really keep my acne in check, its great when combined with tablets but by itself, it seems too little.
Any advice, suggestions would be really appreciated.
