How long were you on Accutane?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how many courses has every one taken? Ever known anyone who has taken it for years and years like myself? This is my fourth year and fifth course. What were your experiences?

My first course was 5 months of 40mg once a day.

Now 3 years later I'm taking my second course. I just started at 40mg a day and I don't know specifically how long its going to be I'd guess around 5 months as well.

read radikal posts and profile....Not a good thing my friend you are playing Russian Roulette with your health. Good Luck

Agreed. Accutane has only been out since the 80s and it's not clear to me that the medical literature has addressed the drug's long term effects, especially those relevant to repeat users.

Have you tried alternative therapies?

I have not found any alternative that works. Tried everything. Even dieting and accupuncture. No luck.

Accutane for the Acne or oily skin? Yeah they pretty much are correlated right? Just wondering.
