I am a 16 year old girl, and have been on Accutane for six months now. Before Accutane I had moderately severe acne for about three years, and had been on EVERY other possible treatment available!
I started accutane in late october on 30mls, then moved to 40mls, then 50, and I am now currently on 60 and have been for the last three months. My dermatologist was hoping I could be finished after three months, but my last appointment he said I could either stop and wait for my skin to die down a bit, and come to terms with finishing Accutane, or carry on as I was still getting active spots. He also said my case was annoying as I've had "nearly clear skin for a very long period".
So far all good! But basically, now I have done six months, and I'm still getting the odd active spot whilst still being on accutane, which makes me nervous to stop it! I only have about two days worth of pills left. I could book another derm appointment but he thought I should definitely be stopping the course, and my insurance company won't pay out for another appointment meaning it would cost me a lot of money to go back to my dermatologist.
Advice would be great please!
I'm really anxious my skin won't ever clear!
