#3414326 Just Finished My Course Of Roaccutane... How Do I Maintain The Results?

Posted by lionheart88 on 15 February 2014 - 05:01 PM

I'm in the uk and it just depends on the doctor and where you live. I tried quite a few different things but I literally just made an appointment and asked her to refer me and she was like 'ok then' lol. Mine was quite bad though.  I can't go without make up either so I used to take it off with a face wipe as I went into the doctors office then run to the toilet and reapply when I came out! 7 months on roaccutane and I'm now clear apart from red marks. Worried about coming off now though! My derm has talked about putting me on a topical for maintenance once I come off. If the red marks don't fade then after about a year you can use hydroquinone cream which the derm will prescribe though there has been some debate on how safe it is. They should fade in time, hope mine do as it looks like I still have acne at the moment!

I'm in the UK and I only waited a month to get an appointment. It's the price you pay for getting 2 months worth of drugs for £7.85 and no other fees! Too many patients and not enough staff, I work in the nhs and it's a nightmare, but there's just not enough money.
