Low Dose Isotretinoin (Accutane/roaccutane): Experiences?

04 March 2015 - 05:31 PM

Hi all,


Been a while since I've posted on acne.org, but was just curious as to anyone's experiences with lose dose isotretinoin treatment.  It would be to long and monotonous for me to write 'my story' here, (as I've done this previously many times on this site - please feel free to browse my profile or pm if you're interested), but I've been on and off Accutane for 16 years now, at varying doses and lengths of time.  Currently I've managed to whittle down to just one 20mg tablet a week - a far cry from where I started all those years ago, but I am still not 'clear'.


Out of curiosity I guess, are there any other Accutane veterans out there with any experiences to tell of low dose treatments?


Thanks in advance




Isotretinoin & Tattoos

Hi all,


Has anyone ever got a tattoo whilst taking isotretinoin?  If so, what dosage were you on etc. 


Did the medication affect your tattoo design?  Did you encounter any problems??


All/any stories would be much appreciated.


Many thanks
