Accutane + Acne Comming Back

Recommended Posts

Okay everyone, as you may know I have been taking Accutane for two months now with great results.

My acne was not that bad prior to taking it; and the Accutane just blew it away.

My question for you (if you took Accutane) is:

1) How bad was your acne before

2) How long did you take Accutane

3) How many mg a day did you take

4) Did your Acne come back yet?

5) If yes, how bad

6) How long have you been of Acccutane

Bascially I'm trying to figure out how effective this stuff is :)

Thanks,

Mike

It really all depends on the severity of your acne, your age, your genetics, among other things.

I have been on 'tane four times. My acne was pretty severe before, so the first several courses lessened the severity tenfold. The last two were to treat my persistant and stubborn as HELL hormonal breakouts, grrrrrr.

My last course ended in March, and I am just started to get severe flares again, so it may call for another course.

I am defintely the exception, not the rule. My mom has--and continues to have post-menopausal--horrible acne. I DEFINTELY got it from her! Additionally, school + my job/career field causes an insane amount of stress, so I am sure that doesn't help.

Any other questions, feel free to PM me :)
