Well i'm about to end my accutane treatment, everything went very well until now. I got no more acne, and let's just say i love this drug :dance:

The problem is that summer is here. and that means large scale sunburns, and that ain't pretty.

So my derm is trying to reduce my normal drug intake ( switching between 40 mg, and 20mg everyday) to 10mg 3 times a week, which is damn low.

And i don't know if he is just trying to scare me, but he said that the exposure to the sun would cut the effect of the drug.

So is it true that the sun cuts the drugs effect?

And will the new regimen (10mg 3 times week) cause me to break out? Note that im almost done with the treatment, and haven't got a pimple in months.

Thanks for your time and sorry for the lack of english :)

i think he just means that since ur on tane ur skin will be extremely sensitive to the sun and u will burn easy.

i think u should be fine with the lowered dose. derms tend to lower it anyone towards the end of ur course to ease u off of it.
