gap time before second course?

how long, if at all, do you need to wait after finishing a first course of accutane before you can start a second course?

My derm said 3 months; then the drug will be completely out of the system and your skin returned to normal so you can asses whether to do a second course or not..

leoleo, the drug insert states 8 weeks, but many derms do like to wait a little longer than that for the reason TTAndersen stated.
