#3386638 Done With Accutane Now What?

Posted by TomasMoya on 05 October 2013 - 02:27 PM

So I just finished a 5 month course of Accutane. I was on 60mg for 2 months, and the last 3 were 80 mg. I have to say it was horrible at first, i had huge disgusting breakouts that were so embarrassing. It was hell for about 3 months. My face slowly started to clear but throughout my treatment it has never been completely clear which has been disappointing. Now I am done and have just 2 large pimples on my face. otherwise I am completely clear and I love it.


I just have a couple of questions now that i'm done:


1) How long will it stay in my system?

2) When can I start eating foods with vitamin A, such as protein shakes with vitamin A?

3) Do i still need to use sunscreen everyday?

4) Will I continue to clear even without taking accutane?


Thanks! Accutane was totally worth it!
