Off Accutane for 16 days. Problem?

Recommended Posts


So i've been taking Accutane for 6 weeks (2x 40 mg/day) and then i got sick. I was prescribed prednisone, thus stopped taking accutane for 7 days, then after took it again for 3 days, then i got strep throat and was on antibiotics for another 7 days (again no accutane) and now i'm finally back on it. However my acne got a lot worse in the last couple days of not taking it. Will this effect the overall results? will i still be done with accutane in the 5 month period i was originally told?

It shouldn't be a problem. All that matters is your cumulative dose and Accutane stays in your system for about 30 days. You may need to add extra time onto the 5 months to reach your cumulative dose, but probably only a couple of weeks.
