Just curious about something

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there's a possible connection between how fast you begin to clear during treatment and how long the remission lasts afterwards? I mean, when you think about it, it sort of makes sense, but I really don't know.

Just trying to grab at straws to figure out whether I'll be one of the lucky ones who are more or less cured for good.

Usually it just matter with age and severity.

I see what you're saying and it's an optimistic view but from what I hear there isn't really correlation I don't think.

Sadly I'm only 17 (started accutane when I was 16) and I'm almost sure it will come back, though it wasn't TOO severe in the beginning either. Hopefully it'll be more manageable within the coming years.

No idea about that, but I have heard that teenagers are more likely to get a remission than people who take it in their 20s+

Yeah, that makes sense. It probably depends a lot on contributing factors like severity, age at time of use, fiddling with birth control, etc.
