What would be more effective?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm in the middle of my third month of accutane on 80 MG a day (2x 40MG) and my dermatologist recommends me to go for 6 months. But I am going to have a little issue...

I will be traveling to Japan for a little over a month to visit my father and from my understanding that accutane is banned in Japan therefor I will not be able to get my prescription for a month. i was wondering if it would be better to take 40MG for a month so that I can bring the left overs to Japan to continue taking it at 40 MG a day. Or if I should just keep taking accutane for another month at 80 MG and not take it for a full month. Also if I stop my treatment for a month would it really effect my treatment?

Thanks ahead of time!

Yea I would talk to your derm, Otherwise I would just do 40 so you can have somewhat of a consistint supply of accutane going through your system, a month without it might be awhile.

I agree that doing the 40 is better than stopping for a month, but I would not do that without discussing with your derm first.
