So after you finish a cycle of accutane, you don't have to take it anymore? Will your acne come back after a period of time?
It all depends on the person honestly, as of now for me (knock on wood) it looks like accutane knocked it all out for me in the first round. This is what happens with the majority of people, as my doc says, especially if the patient is given a high dosage because a high dosage leads to less remission in the future. This is why I say that if you can handle the side effects, go big or go home! I know I didn't want to have to do multiple courses of accutane, so I figured I would just stick it out for 6 months and go with the 80mg/day.
