How long must one wait before beginning a second cycle of Accutane?

I finished my first course on August 2nd.

I'd like to pursue a second course. I remember the dermatologist asserting a certain duration of which a patient must be off for. She called it a 'resting period' and proceeded to give me a prescription of Retin-A gel to use as 'maintenance'.

Maybe things are different where I'm in Canada and stuff, or maybe my derm is just really generous but he told me he's had patients on accutane for over a year and that if I wanted to continue accutane after my course was up he'd let me stay on it.

Best of luck to you.
