Last 10 Pills Of Accutane

First month: 60mg/day

second month: 80mg/day for the past 4 months

SAD TIMES, Well i am down to my last 10 pills of Accutane. I have been on my 2nd month since December 2014 and have been out of Dermatologist care since February but i am finishing up my last pills from my second month.

The last time i took 5-days of accutane pills was late March and went 5 weeks without taking any pill and guess what? Oil returned! It returned to not a significant amount but i'm sure after 2-3 months it will return to its pre-accutane level. Sigh. The only good news is that i haven't broken out for the past 4 months! although i did get two little bumps which quickly went away.

I'm still on the morning regular warm water and night regular clean and clear facewash. I really don't wanna go back to using Benzoyl Peroxide as it tends to make my skin oiler.

Anyway, i am taking my last 10 pills slowly. Tomorrow i will take my 5th, i will wait two weeks and take my last 5 of 40mg. AND THEN i don't know!

Have you tried using CeraVe cleanser and moisturizer in the morning and then a topical retinoid at night (Retin A . 0.05%) and benzoyl peroxide creamy face wash (PanOxyl brand 4%) in the morning and CeraVe moisturizer?

I did 2 courses almost of Accutane and my acne came back. This has gotten me clear in only 5 weeks and it's working SO WELL! better than Accutane ever did!

Thanks Hope but that seems like a time consuming regimen. Warm water in the morning and regular facewash is working fine, trying to avoid all those chemicals unless completely necessary.
