I am finishing my 7th month of accutane on 40 mg a day and am supposed to be done in a week. (for the first 3 months i was just on 20 mg a day)

I'm worried because in the past few weeks have gotten 3-4 blemishes. I;ve been told this is NOT supposed to happen. does anyone know anything about this?? should i not get off the drug? HELP!

Hi there Michelle-

I just started Amnesteem so I don't have personal experience at this time but I've read many posts and know there are several people like you who said they didn't clear up completely until they were done their course of Accutane. I don't think it's anything to be alarmed about. My thought is, your Derm may prescribe a topical for you once you are done for maintenance. You can always call your doctor as well for reassurance. That's what they're for. :)
