1 week post accutane

Recommended Posts

So i've been off accutane for about 10 days now

I've broken out really badly, on my cheeks =\

I was on 10mg twice a day for 3 months and my skin was quite clear during my course.

I'm back on topicals (differin) to help prevent my breakout, I can't stand it =[

Should I go back to my doctor for another higher course?

I broke out a bit around a week/2 weeks after I finished Accutane. I was so upset... But it went away, and after that I was as clear as I was during treatment. I still get an occasional pimple, but nothing near as bad as before treatment.

You may want to give it another week or two and see if your skin improves. :surprised: Hopefully, it will! Best of luck to you!

Sorry but 3 months of 10mg just is not going to achieve any long-lasting results. You must be on a course for 5-6 months on a dosage that is high enough for you to reach the cumulative dose that applies to your weight.
