How severe should your acne be for it to be reasonable to take accutane?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm 26 y/o male who has taken one course of accutane when I was 23, which cleared my skin up quite well for about 3-4 months post treatment. Currently my regimen is to wash my face morning and night with a glycolic acid facial cleanser and apply clindoxyl cream at night which has 5% benzoyl peroxide. I get about 2 or 3 cysts a month and usually zits appear daily, which I poke to pop or to eliminate the bump. My skin is quite oily despite this regimin. Would it be reasonable for me to try a second dose of accutane? Please let me know what you think, thanks.

Many members have taken a 2nd course with success. Some have had to take more. It's up to you to do another one. I'm sorry the first one didn't work longer for you. :(
