Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to ask is it ok to continue with accutane treatment after I stop it for two weeks?The problem is that I cant find the pills in my country and I dont know what to do.My derm told me it is ok but,I dont trust her that much because i think that she doesnt know the product very well :confused: ...I started the treatment at 25 januar,and i run out of pills 10 days ago :think: .

If anyone knows something plz answer me :)

Which country are you from?

Yes you can resume treatment.

The drug stays in your body for up to a month after you stop taking it, which is why women cannot safely get pregnant until 4 weeks after an Accutane course.

Good luck.

Shouldn't make an important difference as they have the same active ingredient, namely "isotretinoin".
