Going on accutane again?

Recommended Posts

i finished up a 5 months on accutane about 3 months ago, ive noticed a little bit of acne coming back on my chest and a little on my face. i was wondering if anyone has ever went back and took a low dose on there second time using accutane. is it possible to get like 20 mg pills? or a dose that wont make me extremly dry?

I haven't taken a second course, but I finished a 6 month/40 mg course a few weeks ago and my derm said that if my acne returns, he would put me on another 3 months of 40 mg (though in that case I have to wait 3 months between ending my first course and beginning the new). So as to your question, yes - a second shorter course on a lower dose is possible.
