is there way to predict accutanes effectiveness while onit?

Recommended Posts

my question regards those who have taken accutane more than once. Do you think there is any way to predict how effective your course will be?

I realize this is probably not an easy question to answer.

I just pray that one course will be enough for me. Im currently starting my 4th month at 50 mg per day. Only 2 months left.

look, u gotta do what u gotta do.

i've been 2 courses, the good part is while you're on it, and this seems to apply to most but not all, your face is totally clear, i mean u can't get a pimple if you prayed for it.

the downside is it will probably come back to some extent later.

it is worth it, if u have to go a second time, so what, stick with it, give it hell, etc.

The 2nd time it was easy to predict... It was exactly the same as the 1st time, both side effects and results for me.

It never seems to come back as bad when/if it returns; I found this both times. I would say that it only came back about 20% as bad for me the 1st time and then prolly 20%-30% as bad the 2nd time...

which works out to be about a 95% improvement for me over the 2 courses.
