finishing roaccutane

Recommended Posts

Hey people,

I have just over 1 month of a four month accutane course left. i took 20mg for the first 6 weeks and am on 40mg for the remainder of the course.I had mild (moderate) acne.I am now almost 100% clear.

Just wanted some advice off people who have finished accutane.I really want to stay clear and want any advice, tips or warnings off people who have experience of this!

Thanks in advance people.

Hang in there man, accutane is a tough one to finish. I did 40mg for 6 months and my acne returned after 3 months or so. There is no cure for us unfortunately, just a constant battle that costs time and money. I am going to start the smoothbeam laser treatments in a month and see how they go. Ill keep ya posted. I have moderate acne myslef which typically responds to Differin and clindamycin combo. But never have 100% clear complexion. Hopefully the laser will fr me up goood.
