Recommended Posts

I don't have any personal experience in this, but my dad is clear after taking 2 years of low dosage Accutane.

For some people they never have acne problems again and for the others they have problems again and need another course. My derm told me that usually 20% of Accutane patients are "cured" while the other 80% get some form of acne. However, if the acne comes back then it will come back in a less aggressive/severe form.
