Hi All

I have read on another forum that after you have been on a full course of accutane if you coninue take 35 - 40 mg of accutane per week it will keep you in full remission.

The guy on the forum has been taking 20mg every 3 days for 2 years and has never had a pimple and his oil production is normal.

Opinions please

Yes you could do that to maintain perfect skin but I don't know about the health risks of such extended exposure to isotretinoin.

I wouldn't do it personally. That is why I'm on accutane because I'm so tired of taking daily antibiotics and such.

I guess the thing is to stop the major part of the oil production and that could be done with 300-600 mg depending the person then apply a maintenance dosage without harming the liver with a great amount of the drug, thousands of grams into it.

I don't know if this very low amounts of cumulative dosage can have danger to a woman who wants to get pregnant.
