I just started accutane my derm told me 5-6 months. I am not sure if that is the norm or not. I am planning on 6 months.

on my 4th mouth right now. Finish mid April. I was originally for 6 but derm shortened it.

it goes anywhere from 4 to 6 months. If that doesnt work to help you clear, you will prolly be on tane 3 to 4 months later again.

It depends on how much you take per day. The more you take the less time you have to be on treatment. For examample, The doctor told me I had to take 9.8grams total (the overall take is measured depending on how much you weight). Now I'm taking 30mg per day, so it would be like 10 months overall. But if I take, let's say 40mg per day it would be less, like 8 months. Get it ?
