how did it end up working for you?
My experiences with ultra low doses of Accutane are written throughout this thread! Please do go back in the pages to check them out.
To update, it has been roughly two years since I began the ultra low-dose process and things are still great. For about 5 months now, I have only been taking one 20mg pill every two or even three weeks. This low of a dose is what I feel comfortable with and it still keeps me clear. I have gone as long as a month without taking a pill but it's at that 4 week mark that blemishes start to show up, so I keep my dose just under that.
Essentially it is like I'm not even taking the medication the dose in my body is so small, but just 20mg of the stuff every two and a half weeks and nobody would ever guess I had problems with acne. My goal is to continue on this route, gauging how my acne is doing on lower and lower doses, until there is a possibility I have outgrown the acne phase of my life. one can dream! Until then, what I'm doing is working just fine with absolutely no side effects.
Again, anyone interested in Accutane, please discuss the possibility of ultra low-dosing the medication with your derm/doctor. It has the ability to do wonders for those of us with incredibly persistent acne.
