For those whos acne came back after Accutane...

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it came back and it's not nearly as bad. My skin is oily but I'm not getting huge nodular acne like I did before. Then again, I've only been off it for 3 months so it could come back full force later on.

Yes. I've been off for four years, and it's never come back as bad as I had it pre-Accutane. I'm starting my second dose this week because my oiliness has kicked up and I still have a hard time treating cysts topically though I get many fewer ones.

i have been on it several times, but nothing more than 3/4 months at a time. could this be the reason why it keeps coming back in a month or so after i stop? how long were all of you on a course?

according to statistics, about 60% goes into complete remission after 1 course and 90% after 2 courses. correct me if I'm wrong, that's from the top of my head.
