Oily skin and # of months on accutane

Recommended Posts

Hi im currently on my nearing the end of my accutane term, which will be 5 months. I used to have very oily skin but now that I'm on accutane, my skin isn't oily anymore.

I was wondering if the Oily skin returns and how long is the regular accutane term. I heard it was 6 months so I'm kinda worried that mine is only 5 months. I have about 10 days left and I still get acne once in a while, is that normal?

You will produce oil again, but in most cases it is less than pre-Accutane. The usual course is 16-20 weeks long per the insert, but that can vary based upon your dermatologist's discretion.
