Question about course duration

Recommended Posts

Soo a little background... I had mild-moderate acne, got prescribed accutane by my derm at 40mg a day for first month then 80mg a day for the next 5. Im 23, and my weight fluctuates between 150-160 lbs, and I am about 4 1/2 months in, but have taken a total of about 10 days off throughout (one-two days at a time), so my treatment duration is closer to 5 months. I haven't really broke out at all in the past month minus a few pimples here and there that were still under the skin remnants from my horrible IB which lasted pretty much for 3 1/2 months. Lately I have started to feel a bit strange, and generally not great and my derm is a pain to get in to see, so do you think it would be appropriate to stop my treatment early, I know there are quite a few people who go on accutane for only 4-5 months.
